Pregnenolone Anti-ageing Aid To Beat Stress And Boost Mind Power
Pregnenolone is a powerful hormone which is present naturally in the body and is responsible for nearly all of the body’s steroid hormone production during the cellular growth process powered by mitochondria. Pregnenolone is therefore also popularly referred to as the mother of all steroid hormones in the body.
As pregnenolone plays a pivotal role in the production of all vital steroid hormones in the body such as progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, dhea, etc. prenenolone is indirectly responsible for the production of all these essential hormones in the body. Produced in the adrenal glands, pregnenolone is therefore endowed with powerful anti-inflammatory arthritis pain relieving properties.
Pregnenolone was first discovered and formulated in the 1940s when it was first given to factory workers to improve their performance. It was found to reduce the stress levels of the workers while acting as a pain reliever for arthritis pain and inflammation as well. However, due to the discovery of another vital steroid hormone during that time, pregnenolone lost its value and significance.
The interest in pregnenolone as an anti ageing supplement and anti inflammatory drug was rekindled in the 1990s. It is today increasingly used as an anti aging memory enhancer and an aid to boost memory. As a mind power aid, pregenenolone benefits mental health and wellbeing as part of the complex steroid hormone production process.
Thus while pregnenole benefits had been established as anti inflammatory and anti depressant to relive stress, pain and inflammation related to arthritis, injury and other bodily conditions, in the recent times pregnenolone supplementation also entered the anti aging arena to address mental decline and memory loss, and act as a memory enhancer.
Pregnenolone therapy has thus come in line with other cognitive enhancers such as Idebenone, piracetam, Hydergine and Vitamin B12 to combat stress and boost memory. As pregnenolone levels are known to decrease overtime, with 60 percent decline in pregnenolne levels by the time one reaches the age of 70, it is suggested one take pregnenolone supplements to prevent physical and mental decline associated with old age.
It has also been proved to be extremely beneficial for menopausal women as it offers a natural estrogen therapy and a way to increase estrogen. A pregnenolone supplement is available in tablet form and as a pregnenolone cream. As a natural supplement, Pregnenolone is safe to use and presents few side effects.
