Pregnenolone is a compound naturally produced in the human body in the brain, gonads, and adrenal glands. It acts as an excitatory neurosteroid – meaning it stimulates brain function and neuronal activity.
Studies have shown that when taken as a supplement, Pregnenolone can improve mood, learning and memory and has neuroprotective properties.
While Pregnenolone is clinically prescribed at dosages of 100 mg, most people find this dosage too high for use as a supplement.
We recommend starting with a dosage of 50 mg (one capsule), or 25 mg (half of a capsule) and only increasing the dosage if you don’t experience the desired benefits. Adverse side effects are more likely to occur at higher dosages, so if you find a low dose to be effective it’s generally not recommended to increase it further.
While Pregnenolone is non-toxic and handled well by the body even at doses well exceeding what’s typically recommended, adverse side effects including insomnia, irritability, headaches, and mood swings have been reported in some users. These side effects are much more likely to occur at higher doses.
Pregnenolone should not be combined with exogenous hormones such as estrogen or testosterone, and there is evidence that Pregnenolone can reduce the effectiveness of benzodiazepine drugs.
