Does creatine cause hair loss?
Creatine and hair loss have been linked in several studies.
Lets see how and why assuming this aminoacid could damage your hair.
Creatine monohydrate is often used by athletes as a supplement to boost performance as it affects how muscles utilize energy, but quite a few report that it can cause hair loss, as a side effect, when taking large amounts.
Its use is associated with positive results and bad side effects that weigh heavily on the amount taken and the span of time that it is actually consumed. Creatine is a natural amino acid found in meat and fish.
Our body also produces it in the pancreas, liver and kidneys.
It is in the family of creatine-based amino acids that are responsible for the proper functioning of different body functions on both a muscular and cellular level, but we know that it is concentrated mainly in muscle tissues, including the heart.
As I said, it assumption can greatly help athletic and fitness performances, but also treat conditions such as muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s and heart disease.
In spite of all these positive effects, it can also interfere with hair growth and can even trigger your hair to start thinning.
Studies have shown that it increases the levels of Dihydrotestosterone (the male hormone derived from Testosterone, and enemy of our hair) in the body, therefore resulting in hair loss.
Through an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, testosterone converts into DHT and its presence on the scalp can be really noxious.
Higher circulating DHT levels are linked with a higher rate of shedding in those susceptible to the effects of this androgen.
In one study conducted on male rugby players, it has been observed that creatine supplementation increased the levels of DHT up to 40-55 % (with a daily amount of 5g) in only 20 days.
