Pregnenolone reinforces your brain’s neurotransmitters (which decline with age), thus enhancing overall brain functionality. Studies have proven that memory is enhanced after pregnenolone treatments due to releasing acetylcholine in the hippocampus of the brain. Scientists believe that it may also repair the fatty layer that protects the brain nerves (myelin sheath).
Stress and Degenerative Disease Shield
Pregnenolone may help protect against the effects of elevated levels of cortisol. Scientists are currently studying its ability to help alleviate Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and cardiovascular disease symptoms (as well as its ability to boost the immune system).
Men vs. Women
Pregnenolone has separate functions in men and women. In women, it transforms into estrogen and sometimes progesterone, while it transforms into testosterone in men. Because of this metabolism to testosterone, men with prostate conditions should use caution.
Because pregnenolone is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone, those with prostate, breast and uterine cancers should avoid any treatments.
Doses are best taken upon waking up in the morning and preferably on an empty stomach.
