Default EGCG androgen receptor downregulation.

And body take this? It sounds like the perfect supplement for hair loss, it actually interferes with androgen receptor transcription. Some people think that AR up-regulation might happen as a result of lower DHT levels from finasteride use so it's possible that EGCG might prevent this and help for long term maintenance.
Just ordered some online, 400mg green tea polyphenola, 50% of which are EGCG. supposedly taking it on an empty stomach results in greater absorption. The biggest problem seems to be low bioavailability and liver toxicity with high doses.
