Pregnenolone is known as the mother hormone. All other steroids including testosterone and estrogen are derived from this important hormone. For this reason, optimal blood levels of pregnenolone are critical for a healthy hormone balance.
However, pregnenolone does more. It is important for proper brain development, cognition, memory and mood. These dramatic effects on the brain are why pregnenolone is known as a neuro-active steroid.
Fasting is not required. Take all medications as prescribed. Pregnenolone supplements should be taken approximately 2 hours before the blood draw.
