Apparently finasteride doesn’t down regulate androgen receptor activity, but black tea does.
Not sure if Black Tea on its own is strong enough, but the extract definitely is cause it can reduce DHT as much as finasteride.
Thought this was interesting. Has anyone tried black tea extract? It’s a gamble either way probably but we might have something that could work for some people. I might try drinking green or black tea on its own for a month each to see what happens, not sure about the extract yet.
