Pregnenolone is a vital hormone that is manufactured in the body. It is nicknamed “The Mother Hormone” because it is the first hormone in the pathway that generates a host of key neurohormones in the brain that affect cell growth. Because of Pregnenolone’s balancing effect, it may be one of the most important hormones. Pregnenolone is a precursor hormone synthesized from cholesterol, primarily in the glands but also in liver, skin, brain, testicals, ovaries and retina of the eyes. In the laboratory, it is derived from wild yam. Diosgenin is the chemical that converts to pregnenolone. Unfortunately, if our body lacks this enzyme it cannot make that conversion.
Pregnenolone naturally declines with age. By the age of 75, we produce 60% less of of this vital hormone than the levels produced in your mid 30s. People with lower levels of Pregnenolone are more likely to suffer from memory deficits and decreased mental awareness, fatigue and reduced mobility, loss of energy, arthritis, mood disorders and sometimes mental illness, cardiovascular disease, decreased libido and secondary sexual characteristic.
Without Pregnenolone your body can’t produce other hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, Dhea and cortisol.
