Supports the production of hormones.*. What is pregnenolone? Pregnenolone is a naturally occurring metabolite produced primarily in the adrenal glands and central nervous system. It’s synthesized from cholesterol and functions as a precursor for the cascade of events from which all other sex hormones such as progesterone estrogen and DHEA are made. Pregnenolone is found in larger quantities in the brain and cranial nerves than any of the sex compounds. Animal studies provide information showing the correlation between cognitive performance and the cerebral concentration of pregnenolone sulfate.* . With age the amount of pregnenolone synthesized in the body decreases. Around age 75 it’s believed to be reduced by as much as 60 percent (from the normal amount present at age 35). How does pregnenolone support health? Supports the body’s pool of available material for hormone production.*. Promotes mental energy and reduces mental fatigue in highly motivated people under stress.*. Supports healthy brain function.*. Why choose Vitacost Pregnenolone?

"Source Naturals has this flavor to it that helps me remember that I popped it. This capsule looks exactly like my D3, my DHEA, and maybe another one or two capsules, so sometimes, I pop it so automatically, I don't remember if I did. For that reason, I prefer Source Naturals. Otherwise, this product is fine."
"This famous, "Grandmother Hormone," converts to what your body needs, works great! I used to buy a competitors version, but your ingredients are better. Sometimes, less additives are worth more! :) I have been using the 50mg capsule for the last 15 years."
"My hormone replacement therapy doctor in Los Angeles recommended Pregnenolone in combination with DHEA 5 mg for anti-aging therapy. I purchased Pregnenolone in his office which contained 30 mg. When I ran out of this product, I found his prices of the "brand name" product had escalated. I then found Pregnenolone 50 mg on your website and I feel even more energetic than before. I will also buy DHEA 5 mg from Vitacost when my current supply runs out."
"All I know is I was paying $50 at the Pharmacy for them to compound it. So I decided to try NSI Pregnenolone. My doctor said it was ok, but I don't think she believes in compounded hormones. I've been taking this product for 3 weeks now. I still feel good that's all I care about."
