The Best Vitamins That Can Block DHT

Various different vitamins spread across a table

Befor we get in to the best vitamins that block DHT, you should probably be aware that high levels of DHT are not the only cause of hair loss.

In fact, there is something even more important to preventing hair loss, and that’s DHT sensitivity.

See, people who suffer from hair loss don’t have abnormally high levels of DHT, it’s just their hair follicles (and the dermal papilla) are more sensitive to DHT than those who don’t suffer from it.

For that reason, I’ve included in this list all the vitamins that decrease DHT sensitivity, as well as blocking it.

Some vitamins work directly, some promote overall good health that can then lead to lower DHT sensitivity, but both will be discussed here.

I’ve also included a few minerals to the list that can help block DHT as well.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you’re interested to find out if you hair loss is reversible naturally, using vitamins and other natural methods, then try the 6 part quiz I’ve created at the bottom of this page.

Some of the best vitamins that can block DHT in your body


Niacin – Vitamin B3

Niacin (vitamin B3) helps with the keratization process and increase circulation to the scalp. Can be taken a few times a week.

Some foods with high quantities of vitamin B3 include:

Biotin – Vitamin B7

Chickpeas with high amount of vitamin b7 can help lower DHT

Chickpeas with high amounts of vitamin B7 may help lower your DHT levels.

Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, helps facilitate keratization, it can be taken every day and is highly recommended natural DHT blocker

Zinc and Selenium

Zinc and selenium are antioxidants, they help proper metabolic functions and aid the keratization process. It’s not necessary to take these every day unless you have a particular deficiency because excess zinc can actually cause hair loss. Selenium helps make hair less fragile.


Magnesium supplements don’t need to be taken everyday, but if you are deficient in magnesium then you can take it regularly to start with to build up your reserves of the mineral. Magnesium oil can help with hair loss by reducing calcification in the scalp.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is an antioxidant and helps improve the oxygen carrying ability of red blood cells whilst protecting the membrane of the cell. Antioxidants are useful for hair loss problems, since hair loss is generally associated with ageing, thereby slowing the process and hair loss is slowed down.

You can take vitamin E as a supplement everyday, but it’s better to look for foods that have high quantities of it. For example, nuts, seeds and wheat germ contain high quantities of vitamin E that is natural and easily absorbable by your body.

Folic Acid – Vitamin B9

Folic acid helps with the keratization process, it can be taken a few times a week as a supplement and is important for growing hair. A healthy diet should mean you naturally get enough of it, but deficiencies can cause hair loss.

Foods that have high quantities of vitamin B9 include:

  • Broccoli
