Description Ingredients

Pregnenolone works with your body to achieve optimal health and longevity and is one of the most important hormones in the human body. Pregnenolone helps reduce fatigue and increase endurance as well as providing the brain with the hormonal and neurotransmitter support it needs to retard memory loss.

Pregnenolone is often referred to as the grandparent precursor to steroid hormones in mammals. Pregnenolone is synthesized from cholesterol in the mitochondria of adrenal glands and to lesser extent in the brain, liver, skin, testes and ovaries. Once synthesized, pregnenolone is released from the mitochondria into the cytosol where it can be converted to DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) or to progesterone.

DHEA serves as a precursor compound to the androgens and the estrogens through androstenedione as the intermediate compound. Progesterone is the precursor to cortisol, aldosterone, androstenedione, estrogen, and testosterone. Pregnenolone may also be secreted directly into the blood where it circulates primarily as the sulfated form. Pregnenolone has many actions of its own not attributable to its conversion to progesterone or to DHEA.

Recent studies show that Pregnenolone is important for the function of brain, nervous tissue, liver, pancreas, reproductive tissues, pituitary and skin. Pregnenolone is found in higher concentrations in the central nervous system compared to the peripheral tissues which may reflect its importance in brain function.

As with many hormones, pregnenolone production declines with age. It is estimated that pregnenolone production is about 60% less at age 75 than at age 35. Pregnenolone levels may also decline under various conditions of physiological stress, such as acute and chronic infections and trauma.

Pregnenolone is the building block for all other steroid hormones. It may also provide supportive anti-stress benefits.

Pregnenolone levels dramatically drop after age 30. Research indicates that restoration of pregnenolone to levels of healthy young adults may provide support for memory, mood and energy.
