Pregnenolone 5 mg
Pregnenolone 5 mg, provided by Douglas Laboratories® contains the highest purity pregnenolone and is produced under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards.
Pregnenolone is often referred to as the grandparent precursor to steroid hormones in mammals. Pregnenolone is synthesized from cholesterol in the mitochondria of adrenal glands. Pregnenolone is also made to a lesser extent in the brain, liver, skin, testes and ovaries.
Once synthesized, pregnenolone is released from the mitochondria into the cytosol where it can be converted to DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) or to progesterone. DHEA serves as a precursor compound to the androgens and the estrogens through androstenedione as the intermediate compound.
Pregnenolone tablets may be a useful nutritional supplement for individuals wishing to supplement their diet with pregnenolone for hormone support.
Each sublingual bisect tablet contains:
- Pregnenolone – 5 mg (3-alpha-hydroxy-5-beta-pregnen-20-one)
