What is Avodart?
Avodart is an innovative medical product which has replaced finasteride. Avodart shows a stronger and more effective action in the treatment of the benign prostatic hyperplasia and helps to stop hair loss in men.
Unlike Finasteride Avodart inhibits 5-alpha-reductase type II and I.
The main factor of the development of the benign prostatic hyperplasia is the increase of androgen hormone – dihydrotestosterone. Hyperplasia of the adenoid tissue of prostate happens under the action of dihydrotestosterone.
As a result of hyperplasia of the adenoid tissue of prostate the man experiences poor urine outflow, a risk of the urine retention, painful sensations, and inflammatory reaction of the urinary tract.
Avodart inhibits 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme which is responsible for the conversion of testosterone into more active form dihydrotestosterone.
The reduction of dihydrotestosterone concentration under the action of Avodart causes the better functioning of the urinary tract and the decrease of the adenoid tissue inflammation.
The medical effect of Avodart is noticed in 2 weeks of the treatment. According to the medical studies of Avodart, the concentration of dihydrotestosterone is reduced by 85-90% within 2 weeks.
Alopecia is another disease of men which can be caused by the excessive amount of dihydrotestosterone which destroys hair follicles. Taking Avodart restores a normal function of the hair follicles, and hair becomes stronger, thicker, and is not lost.
