    Does this have any bearing at all on women with high T? Or does this mechanism of early sun exposure raising T only apply to males?

    It might be better to think of it as morning sunshine "improving" men's T levels.

    or gets more important when you know this: A study in Medical Hypotheses suggested that indoor workers may have increased rates of melanoma because they're exposed to sunlight through windows, and only UVA light, unlike UVB, can pass through window glass. At the same time, these indoor workers are missing out on exposure to the beneficial UVB rays, and have lower levels of vitamin D. www.medical-hypotheses.com/article/S0306-9877(08)00599-9/abstract

    yeah.. what I have read the sun balances and heals the hormones (optimizes them), what ever way that might be, up or down

    that is the magic of the sun :) :) :) but it needs to be nude to be the most effective ;)

    I'm sure it probably stimulates the activation of cortisol receptors - thyroid - probably upregulates androgen receptors to get the day moving etc. Testosterone has a diurnal rhythm as most hormones do.

    Title of this thread
    SO why does Jack advocate AM sunlight?
    and then its content actually makes me feel uneasy or at least not balanced.
    that @Jack Kruse then talks about UV and do not even mention blue.

    Any sunlight is better than artificial light, nobody questions that.
    And however small amount of UVa there is in morning light is better than none,
    and that morning UVa indeed does its work,
    but morning light is predominantly about blue light (I think)
    And I am missing that part.

    What exactly is that magic of the AM sun light in a few words?

    I think Jack wants us to speed up our eye clock when there is no UV a or b available. He wants the hormone factory to get synch up and turned on by the Blue spectrum, I think Red and Blue light take up most of the spectrum in the sunrise to about 8-10 AM window when UV a shows up, which help build up the ability of the skin to capture more UV b when and if any released a little later after UV a.

    Lack exposure to UVB from the sun (Vit D) and also indoor workers are exposed to much more electro-smog and much higher levels of blue light @ higher temperatures than workers outdoors.

    Is there a benefit to sun light at sunset?

    I believe I have a bit too much DHT because my beard is growing like crazy but I'm experiencing a bit of thinning on the top of the head in a typical pattern...

    Would AM light work here too. Should I try MB?

    I think there is still lots untouched room in studying DHT.

    DHT greatly influences sex and hair.

    more sexual abilities often results in weaker head hairs.

    we could possibly be able to get better resolution in what influences what by having better information on DHT.

    Most common tests check for DHT and nothing else.
    Actually year or so ago my Medicare refused to pay for that test.
    For years they did pay for it.

    Actually there are two DHT flavors.

    currently, (I think) 5a-DHT is responsible for sexual functions
    that would make (by default?) 5b-DHT responsible for hair?

    DHT is mostly thought of as androgen
    may not be true of 5b-DHT (which some say is estrogen)

    Urologists like to claim that high DHT may cause prostate cancer.
    First they were offering me Proscar latter Avodart as preventive measures.

    DHT is made from testosterone with assistance of reductase.
    There are two types of reductase, 5aR and 5bR.
    Proscar is 5aR inhibitor
    Avodart is 5aR and 5bR inhibitor (Duasteride).

    I have not seen 5bR inhibitor being sold separately.
    I am guessing that it would help with hair growth and leave sexual functions unchanged.

    5b-DHT (being estrogen) may indeed be the reason for prostate cancers.

    It is good idea to keep eye on progesterone when managing estrogens.

    Note that many herbal concoctions that claim to prevent prostate cancers are progesterones.

    This is a big and important topic,
    that I wish would one day found its way under @Jack Kruse microscope.
