Pregnenolone Benefits and Uses
The body makes pregnenolone out of cholesterol. Pregnenolone in turn can be used by the body to manufacture more than 150 different steroid hormones including DHEA, estrogen, cortisone, and testosterone.
As we age, the amount of pregnenolone that circulates in our bodies decline. This theoretically affects the availability of all the other steroid hormones since they all come from pregnenolone.
Benefits of Pregnenolone
