Pregnenolone

Pregnenolone is the first hormone produced from cholesterol. From pregnenolone, all other steroid hormones are then created (DHEA, testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, etc.). If there is a deficiency in pregnenolone, there can be a cascade of deficiencies in these other important hormones. Pregnenolone itself is a powerful hormone. It has been shown to decrease inflammation, improve memory, and counteract the effects of high stress.

Functions of Pregnenolone:

  • Precursor to many important hormones
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Boosts memory and brain function
  • Fights the effects of stress
  • Improves the immune system
