New replacement DHT lowering product on the market


#1

As I follow a post made by Dr. Arvind about a new DHT lowering product (Keratene Retard) I have contacted some other Drs. to find out more.
I contacted those that attended the FUE Europe Meeting where Keratene Retard was introduced.

Here are the results so far-
Dr. Arvind : good product, uses it in his practice.
Dr. Lupanzula : are familiar with the product, just started to offer.
Dr. Peter Hajduk (ex Gho Praag) : starting to offer to their patients as of november 2012. Also noted ‘so far their clinical studies look very good’.
Dr. Heitmann : convinced it will work, also offers it.
Prohairclinic : started offering to our patient, solid clinical study and presentation. They are also conducting their own ‘clinical’ test at present.

None of them have patient results, but it does seem that they do believe in this product.

Hi garmin333
I was one of the guys that took part in their trials. I signed up from their site. My trial went O.K., no complaints whatsoever for 11 months now (going strong –knock on wood 3x) also no sides. In the beginning they did ask if I don’t do athletic activities and sport stuff and that it may be possible to get tired after a while but I had no such problems. They took blood several times up to a point that I got fed up getting drained dry by those vampires. They took my blood 11 times!! Eventually I got the results by post and dht went from 2140 (before) to 620 (after two weeks). From the repeat tests it looked like after a few months it was at pretty much the same level of around 600. My next blood test is due in a month or so. I swear it’s the last needle I take up my veins. Unfortunately I signed to papers with them and I have to go thru with this but I don’t recommend so many blood test to anyone. They kept telling me it’s essential to measure blood sh*t and crap to see how stuff evolves and what is stabilized and more medical scifi crap about hormones enzyme chemicals and genes that none understands but I had enough of needles! For the moment I feel great and I have zero loss of sex drive, hair loss just stopped, it’s O.K. (I would like to say amazing compared to what I was losing before). No bad feelings for those guys they were very professional and compassionate but I’ll certainly stay away from any other trials that involve needles. Keep you posted soon about the next results.

Is this a pill you swallow or a lotion you rub on?

» Is this a pill you swallow or a lotion you rub on?

hi Ahab, they’re capsules. 1 or 2/day depending on how you’re doing (as in how much dht u got, how advanced the alopecia state is, etc… this is what i can find at least in the product manual). i don’t think i can post links so… google the product name and probably you land on the right site.


#5

How is it different from Propecia?
Its a five alpha reductase binding agent right?

Some info here :

I haven’t read it but I will soon enough

I haven’t heard of this product before. It seems it is only available in Europe.

Also available in a topical

http://www.keratene.eu/shop/5-anti-hair-loss-therapies

hmm. THey go as far as saying it has zero side effects. Also available as a shampoo.

KÉRATENE® alphactive retard depresses the total level of DHT by suppressing the conversion of the androgen Testosterone
(T) to DHT through the adhesion to the 5aRD enzyme by obstructing the transfer of hydrogen atoms to the Testosterone

So its not a 5a reducer, it attaches to 5a to prevent it from converting T to DHT. Thats the big different to fin.

If this is the case, and it works just as well as fin (or better?) with no sides…how is it not bigger news? Whos doing the trials?


#9

I have followed the trials and i recontact most of them last week (about 3-4 months past second batch of trials).

Again, no sides where reported, not a single one.

Although regrowth is NOT expected, some have clear indications that hair loss has reduced considerably. Less hairs in the shower and pillow.

If you are on Finasteride and happy with it, stay on it. If you have second thoughts about the Safety of propecia or you have sides from it, Keratene Retard is a good solid alternative.

I will try to provide updates from time to time.

Yeah, pretty tough to get it in the US, I have to pay quite a bit to get my own stuff…
So far, I’m happy with it.
Did you try it? Where you from? If you use it perhaps be we can combine the shipment and get some more (worth some cash).


#11

A new, more cost effective package of 180 tablets is now available.
This makes more sense since it is a long term commitment.

The 60 tablet version also remains available.

I’ve been on Avodart off label (.5mg) 10 years now for hair loss with no ill effects.If I took both Keratin R and continued to take Avodart would I see better results/no more improvement than Avodart alone/ or would the two be too harmful?


#13

I am not a dr. but personally I would not advice to combine 2 DHT lowering products.
Lowering DHT for hair loss is often a good solution, but killing your DHT completely … I don’t think that is the solution either.

Before and after picture taken 8 months after starting keratene Retard tablets (twice/day) + Keratene Shampoo + Keratene Ultra lotion

Overall hair quality has improved.

Please note:

No concealers or any kind of enhancements where used.

Update:

Keratene Retard tablets now also contain Biotin, an extra ingredient to help hair growth.

A VEGAN version is now available. In this version the gelatin capsules are made out of non organic ingredients, ideal for vegetarians.

Keratene capsules do not contain lactose or gluten.
