Pregnenolone is a natural steroid hormone in the body that’s been shown to boost the immune system, mood, and memory.
Produced from cholesterol, pregnenolone has been described as the “grandmother of all steroid hormones,” since all 150 steroid hormones in the body - including testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, and aldosterone - are derived from pregnenolone. In the body, it is readily converted to DHEA and/or progesterone. The body will typically convert pregnenolone into DHEA or progesterone according to its needs. Pregnenolone is often used in HPA-resetting / adrenal fatigue programs and anti-aging protocols to increase energy and stamina, strengthen the immune system, and support brain function. Studies show that the body makes 60% less of this hormone at age 75 than it does at age 35, indicating the need for supplementation in our 40s and on.
