“l. Green tea catechins block the type 1 form of 5 alpha reductase enzyme. The type 1 isozyme is found mostly in sebaceous glands of acne prone areas of the face. Since this enzyme is responsible for converting testosterone to the more potent dihydro-testosterone, lower levels of circulating androgens may prove helpful in acne.

Inhibitors of 5 alpha-reductase may be effective in the treatment of 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone-dependent abnormalities, such as benign prostate hyperplasia, prostate cancer and certain skin diseases. The green tea catechins, (-)epigallocatechin-3-gallate and (-)epicatechin-3-gallate, but not (-)epicatechin and (-)epigallocatechin, are potent inhibitors of type 1 but not type 2 5 alpha-reductase. (-)Epigallocatechin-3-gallate also inhibits accessory sex gland growth in the rat. These results suggest that certain tea gallates can regulate androgen action in target organs.
