Liposomal Pregnenolone provides naturally-derived pregnenolone in a liposomal delivery system for increased absorption.
Pregnenolone is a hormone naturally made in the human body,
principally in the adrenal glands. Cholesterol is the precursor molecule
for the synthesis of pregnenolone as well as all the other steroid
hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol,
and DHEA. However, pregnenolone itself has minimal to no
androgenic, estrogenic or anabolic activity.
Human studies show that pregnenolone is found in nervous tissue and
the brain in much higher concentrations than in the blood stream.
There is also evidence that there is a higher concentration of DHEA in
the human brain than in the plasma. Both pregnenolone and DHEA
have been described as “neurosteroids” – steroid hormones that affect
the nervous system. DesBio pregnenolone is produced from an
ingredient extracted from wild yam.
