Green Tea Proven Treatment for Hair Loss & Health


#1

"It is known that green tea can be able to inhibit Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) which hinders hair growth while at the same time causing hair fall. Green tea components have the ability of reacting with testosterone in the body influencing their levels and making it available in a balanced amount in the blood so that it doesn’t react with 5-alpha reductase and convert it into DHT. Hence, when the testosterone in the body is maintained at a balanced level, then the hair will grow in a normal way and there will be no signs of hair fall.[3]

In addition, green tea holds the potential of treating excessive scalp flaking and dandruff. Green tea has antiseptic properties, making it essential in reducing inflammation, and hence preventing and even curing dandruff and psoriasis. In fact, green tea is thought to exfoliate dry flakes that are usually formed due to the dandruff presence in one’s hair.

The potent antioxidants in green tea referred to as polyphenols are quite beneficial. This is because antioxidants serve as protectors against cell damages caused by free radicals as well as slowing the process of aging. In that regard, antioxidants have the ability of keeping your hair healthier and making them grow at an optimal rate.

Studies done in mice showed that had shown hair loss show that the loss immediately stopped when green tea was added to the mice drinking water. The mice further went ahead to develop new hair growth which was not the case to mice that was not treated with green tea. Studies have shown that a compound epigallocatechin gallate, EGCG also helps prevent hair loss. EGCG has an inhibitory role on the Tumor Necrosis Factor (a molecule responsible for hair loss). The molecule is also one causative agent of arthritis and cancer further showing the many health benefits green tea drinkers can gain."

Very interesting. Thank you for this post. I’m an avid green tea drinker, but didn’t realize the benefits mentioned here.

You are so welcome @freedom. I always learn a wealth of invaluable information from you. It feels great to reciprocate!
If you haven’t already, peruse the full article. Green Tea is also exceptionally beneficial topically as a final rinse for hair growth, dandruff and eczema. Since you already drink alot of green tea you could reuse your teabags, doubling the amount, and make a rinse (recipe in article).

Upon reading this and other related research and journals, I am going to start drinking green tea. :grinning:
