TLDR Plant-based remedies may treat hair loss by reducing inflammation and improving insulin resistance.
This document from 2018 explores the potential of plant-based remedies for treating androgenetic alopecia (AGA). The article proposes a new approach to treating AGA using plant-based remedies that inhibit 5α-reductase, reverse secondary microinflammation, and improve insulin resistance. The document discusses the relationship between androgenetic alopecia and androgen abnormality, as well as the use of plant-based folk remedies for treatment. It also explores the comorbidity of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome in AGA and provides insight into potential treatments. However, more research is needed to confirm the effectiveness of these remedies.View this study on sciencedirect.com →
