RevivogenRevivogen is a non-FDA approved topical DHT inhibitor treatment applied to the scalp, with many ingredients, such as types of fatty acids, that are thought, though not proven, to inhibit DHT levels in the scalp and have a positive influence in combatting hair loss. Revivogen also contains ingredients that are thought, though not proven, to function as an antiandrogen (see below) that has a positive influence in combatting hair loss. Clinical trials are reportedly underway.
Revivogen uses simple mixtures of fatty acids (gamma Linolenic acid, alpha Linolenic acid, Linolenic acid, and a few others, which are thought to be potent inhibitors of 5AR, both type I and type II), in their free form, that come from the bulk de-esterification of natural oils like borage and flaxseed. This methodology is considered just as effective as using purified fatty acids, but saves considerable expense. There are other products that contain fatty acids from natural oils, such as black currant oil and emu oil, but virtually all natural oils, including these two, contain only insignificant amounts of free fatty acids.
