The drug has been certified in many countries around the world, including in UK. Propecia, which can be bought in the UK, represented by generic production of several pharmaceutical companies (India, USA, UK).
Initially, the drug was developed as a means to stimulate and restore the secretory function of the prostate gland. The therapeutic effect of Propecia on the prostate due to the normalization of the levels of DHT.
Testosterone can take a more active form dihydrotestosterone. With the increased level of education of the androgen dihydrotestosterone bind multiple lesions of the prostate cells, its hypertrophy (enlargement) and hyperplasia (overgrowth of the secretory tissue). Also under the influence of this hormone in the body there is the development of cancer processes (up to an adenoma).
Elevated levels of dihydrotestosterone leads not only to prostate lesion. As a result, it suffered hypersecretion and other tissues. Most often it is the hair follicles in the scalp.
In clinical trials it has been found that in addition to the restoration activity of the prostate drug has another therapeutic effect. It turned out that generic Propecia stimulates growth and normalizes the vital functions of the hair follicles. Under the influence of the drug improves the metabolic processes within the hair follicles. There is a full or partial recovery of the hair cells, the activity of which has been changed over the degenerative processes.
Finasteride also allows the drug not only normalize metabolic processes within the degenerating cells. To provide them with a therapeutic effect on the male body is a stimulant for the development of new hair follicles.
The ability to use Finasteride baldness fully revealed only after admission to the sale. Carrying out a statistical study found that Finasteride tablets have helped to get rid of androgenic alopecia about 80% of all men surveyed.
Operating principle (UK)
The ability of the drug stimulyativno affect the recovery of hair is due to its composition of finasteride. 1 mg of the substance capable of during the day completely deactivate and neutralize the pathologic effects of DHT. However, provided that this androgen is produced in the male excess. Finasteride neutralize the production of DHT by inhibiting the action of the enzyme reductase.
The process of forming a more active form of testosterone passes under the action of the enzyme reductase. With reduced secretion inhibitor of the enzyme. Inhibitors are substances that can slow down, prevent or completely neutralize during a chemical reaction. They have a highly directional action. Part of the drug finasteride inhibitor inhibits production of a reductase enzyme, which occurs under the influence of the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (more active form of the hormone).
