Pregnenolone - Pregnenolone, a natural precursor to over 150 steroid hormones, helps support the immune system, mood and memory.Warning: Consult your physician before taking this product. May cause drug interactions or other serious complications.

What Is It?

Pregnenolone, 3-alpha-hydroxy-5-beta-pregnen-20-one, is a precursor to over 150 steroid hormones and is produced naturally in the body from cholesterol.

Uses For Pregnenolone

Memory Support: Animal studies have reported that pregnenolone may help to enhance memory by modulating N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and gamma aminobutyrate (GABA) receptor activity in the brain. One study suggested that pregnenolone helped promote post-training task learning and memory.*

Immune Health: One study indicated that the 7-hydroxy metabolites from pregnenolone may help promote healthy immune system response.*

Mood Support: Pregnenolone has been reported to help promote feelings of emotional well-being. One study suggested that pregnenolone supported positive mood and feelings of motivation by mediating dopamine release.*

What Is The Source?

The compound diosgenin is extracted from wild yam and undergoes a proprietary synthetic process to develop the pregnenolone compound. The human body cannot metabolize wild yam into pregnenolone. This process can only take place in a laboratory.


• Pure Encapsulations recommends 10-30 mg per day,

with a meal, preferably in the morning or early afternoon.

• Pregnenolone should only be used under the direction and supervision of a health care practitioner.

• Practitioners are advised to test pregnenolone levels before making the decision to commence supplementation, and to monitor levels if supplementation is initiated, ensuring that proper levels are maintained.

• This product should not be taken by individuals with healthy levels of pregnenolone.

•Pregnenolone is best utilized by individuals above 40 years of age, and should not be used to enhance athletic ability or endurance.

•Discontinue use and call a physician or licensed qualified health care professional immediately if you experience rapid heartbeat, dizziness, blurred vision, or other similar symptoms.

•When taken at higher levels, irritability, over-stimulation and fatigue have been observed. Due to its effects on the GABA receptor in the central nervous system, supplementation with pregnenolone could cause problems in people with a history of seizures.

Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?

Pregnenolone may inhibit drugs used to increase GABA activity (e.g., Neurontin); these drugs are frequently used in the treatment of epilepsy and depression.*
