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.
