An Update on Plant Derived Anti-Androgens – International Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism
We provide an overview and discussion of the use of anti-androgen medications in clinical practice and explore the increasing recognition of the benefits of plant-derived anti-androgens, for example, spearmint tea in the management of PCOS, for which some evidence about efficacy is beginning to emerge.
Stumbled on this while doing some research. It’s an overview of all the research (limited in many cases, lacking in others) of alternative sources of anti-androgens, including many of the sources that tend to float around in the trans* community when someone asks “Is there any way for me to start HRT now, before the doctor lets me?”
I am not an advocate of self-dosing HRT, but I don’t see the problem with someone wanting to administer spearmint tea to themselves twice a day.
