What is pregnenolone? Pregnenolone is a neurosteroid produced from cholesterol, with the involvement of vitamin B5 and coenzyme A. It serves as a precursor for the synthesis of all other steroids found in the human body. The main sites of its production are the gonads, adrenal glands, and brain. If one were to map out the metabolic pathway of steroid compounds, pregnenolone would be at its base, initiating the metabolic pathway for every possible steroid hormone. Its production increases as a result of signaling by pituitary hormones such as LH, FSH, and ACTH. This is an important relationship because each of these hormones ultimately aims to increase the production of steroid hormones; therefore, it is first worthwhile to stimulate the production of their precursor to ensure an adequate supply of "building blocks." To illustrate the pathway of sex hormone metabolism from pregnenolone


(2) What are the benefits of pregnenolone supplementation and how much should you take?

Pregnenolone positively impacts the entire human body; without it, many hormones wouldn't be synthesized, leading to low energy levels, poor mood, and decreased mental clarity. Pregnenolone supports brain function and efficiency, contributing to neuron activity, growth, the formation of new synapses, and myelination. It has shown neuroprotective effects, particularly in brain injuries like stroke and various traumas, improving learning speed and memory retention. Pregnenolone also influences dopamine, GABA, acetylcholine, and NMDA receptors. Additionally, it regulates sleep when taken in appropriate amounts, potentially aiding in falling asleep and improving sleep quality for those suffering from insomnia. It boosts energy levels, improves mood, and can alleviate depression and anxiety. It has been beneficial in schizophrenia, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and degenerative joint disease. Pregnenolone strengthens bones and overall well-being, usually inducing a calming effect, reducing stress and anxiety, and stabilizing mood and emotions. Through several metabolic stages, pregnenolone increases sex hormones such as testosterone, DHT, and estradiol, which also significantly impact other neurotransmitter systems, including dopamine, thereby influencing mental comfort. Research indicates that one of pregnenolone's metabolites, allopregnanolone, effectively regulates the amygdala, a brain region responsible for processing emotions, potentially mitigating anger and aggression and reducing alcohol consumption urges. Therefore, pregnenolone supplementation could aid in alcohol cessation for individuals struggling with addiction. It promotes faster sleep onset and can be utilized in anti-aging therapies. The recommended daily dose of pregnenolone is 100mg or more.


(3) Side effects of pregnenolone supplementation
Firstly, it's essential to remember that pregnenolone is the primary neurosteroid naturally produced in both women and men from cholesterol. Any improper supplementation of natural steroids may result in inconvenience. Numerous studies have been conducted on pregnenolone to assess its safety when taken as a supplement. Observations have led to unequivocal conclusions: there are no known side effects, and it is well-tolerated. Since our bodies naturally produce pregnenolone, they are familiar with it, and its intake does not typically cause any surprises. Initially, headaches or increased sleepiness may occur, but as the body adjusts to the increased dose, these issues usually disappear.
