    They say formestane inhibits dht, which I believe would prevent hair loss. Can anyone confirm this?

    I'm very prone, and been on form lv for weeks now. Hair loss seems to be the same as before I started. I wondered if it would reduce it, as it lowers dht, but so far it seems to have no effect.

    Thats the question, as it could inhibits DHT there is no reason to think it could make MPB worse, but after all is an androgen, im confused about this.

    Give it a try. I'm VERY sensitive to hair loss. Testofen kicked my hairline's ass. This stuff is seemigly neutral.

    It takes a long time for DHT to attach to the receptors in your hair follicles, and it takes a long time for the body's unfortunately auto-immune response to destroy the hair follicle, so you wouldn't notice anything for months.

    However, it is likely that Formestane would provide some help since it inhibits DHT, which would result in a drop in serum DHT levels, but again, it would take several months for this to have an impact on your hair.

    Androgens in general to not cause hairloss. For those with a genetic propensity to MPB (like me) DHT attaches to the receptors in the follicle, and the body wrongly perceives them as foreign invaders and the immune system begins attacking the follicle, which gets smaller and smaller over time.

    Other androgens to not trigger this response. If anything Formestane will help, because it lowers DHT levels much like Propecia does.

    Sure thing.

    I'm considering adding Formestane LV from Primordial Performance to my next cycle, not only for it's immediate effects, but also to help keep DHT levels under control while on cycle.

    Good luck.

    Does anyone have a clue how formestane inhibits DHT? I know it's a suicidal aromatase inhibitor, permanently deactivating the enzyme. Does it work in a similar manner on 5ar? I'm planning a solo run of PP form LV and I hope DHT levels will pop right back up where they were when I stop using it. Would love to hear an educated opinion on the matter.
