Treatment of Enlarged Prostate Gland
Finasteride (Proscar) is a very potent type II 5a-reductase inhibitor, which prevents conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a sex hormone. In addition, it is used for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is the enlargement of the prostate.
Finasteride inhibits 4a-reductase, and as mentioned, will prevent testosterone conversion to DHT. Studies have shown it will reduce serum DHT levels by about 65-70%, and prostate DHT levels, by up to 90%. By blocking DHT production, finasteride reduces androgen activity on the scalp; and in the prostate reduces prostate volume, which improves BPH, and reduces risk of prostate cancer.
Prevent Hair Loss
Bodybuilders will want to inhibit this conversion as much as possible to preserve hair loss, which is why finasteride is used. This is especially true when using DHT derivative anabolic steroids. Finasteride does a good job at keeping existing hair, and in almost half of men it will help grow more hair.
