Usage : Pregnenolone is a steroid hormone involved in the steroidogenesis of progesterone, mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, androgens, and estrogens. As such it is a prohormone. Pregnenolone is a GABAA an tagonist and increases neurogenesis in the hippocampus. It is a modulator of cytochrome P 450-3A .
Pregnenolone is a natural hormone produced within the body, however many different factors can interfere with proper production of this compound. Natural Pregnenolone production declines as we age. For these reasons, many individuals may benefit from boosting levels of this compound using dietary supplement. When the supplement is taken orally, it is able to quickly pass through the blood-brain barrier and enter into the central nervous system.
Pregnenolone is a steroidal hormone with several powerful nootropic benefits .
It is used as a focus booster, mood enhancer and energy pill. Recent studies have found it effective for improving memory, comprehension, and information processing and critical analysis. According to Dr. Flood of the Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center, “Pregnenolone is the most potent memory enhancer yet reported”. Pregnenolone is also one of the most important hormones within the body, involved in the synthesis of many different types of chemicals and other hormones like androgens, estrogens, glucocorticoids, and more. This supplement is considered to be a pro-hormone, which essentially means that it leads to the production, development, or synthesis of a number of other chemicals and hormones.
Pregnenolone is synthesized from cholesterol. This occurs primarily in the adrenal glands, but also within the liver, skin, brain, testicles, ovaries, and retinas (eye). As a steroid, this supplement acts as a precursor to DHEA, progesterone, testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol. Even though this supplement has some very powerful metabolites, it is also considered to be without significant side effects and very limited anabolic, estrogenic, or androgenic activity.
