Pregnenolone is called “the father of steroid hormones” because it is a precursor to practically all steroid hormones. It is essential to the synthesis of, among others, testosterone, progesterone, estrogen and DHEA. Pregnenolone is synthesised in mitochondria from cholesterol in the presence of the enzyme desmolase.
Nowadays, chronic stress, unhealthy diet and inevitable ageing of the body are more and more frequent causes of a decrease in the synthesis of sex hormones. These factors have a negative impact on gonads and adrenal glands and contribute to symptoms associated with a deficiency in sex hormones. The first signs are sleepiness, irritability, low libido and poorer training performance. To reduce these unpleasant symptoms and restore hormonal balance in a legal and safe way by increasing testosterone levels in men and estrogen levels in women, we need pharmacological support.
Preparations with pregnenolone will be helpful women and men during meno- or andropause because they will enable them to improve considerably the quality of life and reduce the risk of diseases and their symptoms associated with hormone deficiencies.
