Foods that are made of soy are naturally low in cholesterol, which helps to prevent DHT from being released in your body. According to aidhairloss.com, 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme produced from cholesterol, increases DHT.


Certain DHT-blocking extracts can be added to foods. These include emu oil, saw palmetto extract and pumpkin seed oil.
