While supplementing pregnenolone, it is good to control the condition of hormone economy in the organism by testing hormone levels regularly.
It is not advised to exceed the dosage of 50 mg of pregnenolone a day. What is more, research suggests that supplementation with the compound is efficient even if the daily dose is just 10 mg. That is why there is no need to use higher daily dosage than that recommended by the producer.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
Pregnenolone, called the “father of steroid hormones”, is a steroid synthesised from cholesterol as a result of the activity of the enzyme 20,22-desmolase found in mitochondria. Pregnenolone is a precursor to all steroid hormones, among others, progesterone, testosterone and estradiol, and mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids.
Pregnenolone supplementation helps optimise hormonal balance. Unlike ready-made hormones, taking pregnenolone is “personalised” because it helps the body decide to which hormone it will be converted.
Pregnenolone administration is recommended both to women (during menopause and irregular periods) and middle-aged men (prevents drops in testosterone and libido). Pregnenolone supplementation may benefit also persons undertaking strenuous physical activity and struggling with “adrenal fatigue” (optimised cortisol levels) and the elderly in which levels of pregnenolone and hormones for which it is a precursor decrease (promyelinating properties and improvement in cognitive functions).
Our store offers pregnenolone in different package sizes, in the form of capsules, tablets and tasty lozenges.
