If DHEA is considered the "Mother of Hormones" Then Pregnenolone should be considered the "Grandmother of Hormones".
Dr. Earl Mindell considers pregnenolone to be one of the key, anti-aging hormones. Regarding it, he states, "Pregnenolone is the precursor to all the steroid hormones (those made by the ovaries, testicles. and adrenal glands), including progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, the cortisones, and DHEA. It was used in the 1930's & 40's to successfully treat arthritis in humans, but was neglected when synthetic drugs replaced it. Biochemist Raymond Peat, Ph.D., who has experimenter with pregnenolone for man years, reports that when you are deficient in pregnenolone, taking it as a supplement can successfully relieve depression, improve memory, reduce skin aging, relieve arthritis symptoms, and reduce stress-induced fatigue. ...pregnenolone is the next "up and coming" anti-aging hormone..."
Below are a few details about some studies and benefits using Pregnenolone.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Because pregnenolone is a precursor to the production of cortisol in the body, it was used a a treatment for arthritis in the 1930's 1940's,In daily doses ranging from 50mg to 700mg, pregnenolone was found to be effective and much sager than the corticoids, salicylates, gold and other drugs used as treatments. Daily doses of pregnenolone above 200mg appeared to be more effective than lower doses.
Stress, Fatigue and Depression: Several studies in the 1940's indicated that a daily dose of just 50mg reduced fatigue and stress among factory workers, airline pilots and others. Research has shown that Pregnenolone produces other hormone-like substances in the body which can greatly improve our resistance to stress and adrenal exhaustion. Pregnenolone also functions as a 'neuro-hormone' in the body, and has been shown to significantly help in balancing emotions and moods such as anxiety and depression. You may find Pregnenolone just the answer for today's hectic, fast-paced, and highly stressed world we live in.
Memory Enhancement: Studies have shown Pregnenolone to be hundreds of times more powerful than other memory-enhancing substances. It has an incredibly powerful effect on improving transmission of nerve impulses. This has led Dr. Bruce Miller, a neurologist at the Harbor UCLA Medical Center to study Pregnenolone's effect on Alzheimer's disease. Women's Health: Pregnenolone converts to DHEA, progesterone, then estrogen. This makes it a safe estrogen replacement therapy for post-menopausal women. Progesterone is an important hormone for the health of the female reproductive system. DHEA used in large amounts is likely to increase testosterone (the male hormone) in women, which creates many undesirable side effects associated with it. Pregnenolone may help balance estrogen levels in the body naturally, which could aid women who suffer from conditions linked to high estrogen levels such as PMS, endometriosis and fibrocystic breast disease.
