Dutagen is used in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in older men.

How it Works

Dutagen blocks the enzyme called 5-alpha reductase which helps in the conversion of the hormone testosterone to the more potent hormone dihydrotestosterone. Dihydrotestosterone is responsible for making the prostate enlarged. Therefore, a reduced amount of dihydrotestosterone with the help of Dutagen causes the prostate to shrink, this helps in the passing of urine more easily.
