Pregnenolone is a natural precursor to over 150 steroid hormones and helps to support hormones in the body, the immune system, mood, and memory.
Pregnenolone, 3-beta-hydroxy-5-pregnen-20-one, is a natural steroid hormone produced in the body from cholesterol. It has been described as the “grandmother of all Steroid Hormones,” since all steroid hormones are derived from pregnenolone.
In the body, pregnenolone is converted to DHEA and/or progesterone. It is believed that the body converts pregnenolone according to its needs. However, pregnenolone levels, along with their presumed benefits, decrease age. Studies show that the body makes 60 percent less of this hormone at age 75 than it does at age 35.
