Pregnenelone is a hormone manufactured from cholesterol in the mitochondria whose optimal levels may have a positive effect on:
- Cognitive performance
- Energy levels
- Skin health
Pregnenolone CRT features a controlled release technology that provides a very slow (10-12 hour) continuous release of pregnenolone in a very uniform manner, helping to eliminate the spikes, surges, and unwanted side effects found in other immediate release pregnenolone delivery systems. This translates to a controlled delivery system that allows for convenient once-daily dosing, a feature very important in hormone precursor therapy. This technology delivers optimal results by enabling pregnenolone to be released in such a way that it more closely mimics how it is released within the body.
Pregnenolone is a precursor to hormones necessary for a variety of functions in the human body. Based on the body’s demands, pregnenolone can be converted into many hormones including dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), progesterone, estrogens, testosterone, cortisol, and aldosterone. Cholesterol is the building block for pregnenolone, and it gets converted in many locations in the body including the adrenal glands, brain, skin, liver, and gonads (testes or ovaries). Some individuals may require additional supplementation due to aging, certain medications, and lifestyle factors, such as malnutrition,
malabsorption, excessive exercise, vegetarian diets, stress, and sleep deprivation.
The hormones made in the body from pregnenolone may support healthy sexual hormone balance, a healthy stress response, healthy cognition and memory, healthy electrolyte balance, and balanced moods.
