A key precursor to cortisol, DHEA, and progesterone, pregnenolone promotes normal adrenal function and supports the stress response system by acting as a hormone precursor.
Pregnenolone is a pro-hormone that is synthesized in the brain and adrenals, but also in the liver, skin, brain, testicles, ovaries, and retina. As a biochemical precursor to DHEA and progesterone, pregnenolone helps to keep a normal balance between these hormones in the body, and as a result, helps to modulate the cortisol-driven stress response system, support nerve cell growth, and modulate mood. Specifically, when a high-stress lifestyle pushes the stress response system into overdrive, the rise in cortisol can ultimately cause the depletion of pregnenolone and a reduced availability of DHEA and progesterone.
Pregnenolone plays a key role in hormonal balance as a precursor to cortisol, DHEA, and progesterone, and helps to maintain balance in the body’s stress response system. In addition, pregnenolone has been shown to support a balanced moor and promote cognitive health by modulating the transmission of messages between neurons, influencing learning and memory processes. Since there is strong evidence that pregnenolone levels diminish with advancing age, restoring these levels may also help support overall brain function and sense of well-being. Each capsule of Pregnenolone formula includes 10mg of pregnenolone in a scored, quick-dissolving tablet, allowing for incremental dosing as needed.
Dosage: Take one per day or as recommended by your health care practitioner.
Contraindications: Consult with your physician before using Pregnenolone as part of your hormone replacement therapy.
