Natural Pregnenolone - Anti-Aging Super Hormone
Pregnenolone is now available as a nutritional supplement derived from natural yam concentrate-- another exciting breakthrough in anti-aging. Your body naturally produces large amounts of this hormone, yet due to stress and other factors, you may not be producing enough. It is made from cholesterol under the influence of thyroid hormone and vitamin A.
Why is Pregnenolone So Famous?
- Precursor to all steroidal hormones
- Provides significant help for depression and anxiety
- Helps improve resistance to stress, adrenal exhaustion and fatigue
- Helps enhance nerve transmission and memory
- Helps relieve arthritis via repair of the myelin sheath
- Helps restore firmness to slack skin
Supports a Healthy Body with the Following:
- Stress, Fatigue and Depression
- Poor or Loss of Memory
- Poor Hormone Levels
- Arthritis, Spinal Cord Injuries and Multiple Sclerosis
- Aging, Loose Skin
The "King of the Hill"
Pregnenolone is called "The King of the Hill" because it is the first steroid hormone produced from cholesterol and sits in the key position (on top of the "hill") to be made into any of the other steroid hormones, such as DHEA, progesterone, the estrogens (three types, estrone, estradiol, estroil), testosterone, the corticosteroids and aldosterone.
Pregnenolone is a direct precursor to DHEA. It may enhance DHEA's activity and can be taken together with it. But unlike DHEA, which converts to estrogen (all 3 types) and testosterone, pregnenolone is converted directly to progesterone. Therefore, it is often an excellent choice for estrogen-sensitive women or testosterone-sensitive men (such as those with a history or risk of prostate cancer).
Stress, Fatigue and Depression
Because pregnenolone is the "King of the Hill" and can be converted to other hormones, research shows that it can help greatly improve our resistance to stress and adrenal exhaustion - often at the core of aging and chronic disease. Pregnenolone can be converted into badly needed adrenal hormones which are often low due to stress and fatigue. Pregnenolone was used in one study of Army pilots to study the effects of fatigue. By simply taking oral pregnenalone, the pilots showed dramatic decreases in fatigue, even under exhaustive conditions. Other studies show that pregnenolone functions as a neurohormone in the body. It has been shown to significantly help in balancing moods and emotions, such as depression, anxiety and irritability.
Another exciting area in pregnenolone research is its memory-enhancing ability. Studies have shown pregnenolone to be hundreds of times more powerful than other memory-enhancing substances. As a neurohormone, pregnenolone has a powerful effect on improving transmission of nerve impulses which may enhance memory relay pathways. The effect of pregnenolone on Alzheimer's Disease is currently being studied by Dr. Bruce Miller, a neurologist at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA.
Boosting Poor Hormone Levels
Another study at John Hopkins University found that a males learning ability varies according the his blood testosterone levels. Men with lower testosterone levels had more trouble remembering certain tasks. This study supports other studies that relate hormonal influences to learning and developmental differences between the sexes. Natural yam-derived pregnenolone may be a promising boost to those with poor hormone levels, including low testosterone, since it is a precursor to testosterone via the progesterone and DHEA pathways.
Arthritis, Spinal Cord Injuries and Multiple Sclerosis
In the past, pregnenolone was widely used in arthritis treatment, because it had no side effects and could be naturally converted into internal corticosteroids, a class of steroids known to reduce inflammation so common to arthritis. Secondly, further studies show that pregnenolone may aid in repairing the myelin sheath on nerves, as seen in multiple sclerosis. Thirdly, in a recent study, pregnenolone was shown to dramatically improve spinal cord injuries, even reversing paralysis if given shortly after the injury.
Research has shown that fiber cells, which are a major component of skin, contain the same contractile materials contained in muscles. Pregnenolone may allow skin cells to contract, restoring firmness to slack skin. Many report general firmness to the facial skin after taking oral pregnenolone. It has also been able to quickly cause other rapid anatomical changes which may be from eliminating edema (water retention).
