Pregnenolone – “precursor hormone”

Pregnenolon Strukturformel
The “precursor hormone” pregnenolone has an extremely versatile mode of action. It improves mood, boosts vitality, increases memory performance and boosts energy. In addition, pregnenolone has exhibited positive effects in the treatment of neuropsychiatric concerns such as depression, schizophrenia and addiction.

Precursor for Important Steroid Hormones

Steroid hormones regulate important messenger substances that are responsible for healthy cognitive function, among other things. They also influence mood, regulate physiological processes such as hunger and sexual behavior and help the body to cope with anxiety and stress. Pregnenolone plays an important role in these functions as a precursor for many other steroid hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, cortisol and aldosterone.

Other applications

Pregnenolone promotes a healthy cardiovascular system and strengthens the body’s natural anti-inflammatory defenses. Pregnenolone is also likely to produce numerous additional effects indirectly, thanks to the various hormones resulting from pregnenolone metabolism. For example, pregnenolone can be converted to dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and act as such, or as a metabolite of DHEA such as estrogen or testosterone. If needed, it can also be converted to progesterone, thereby helping to regulate female sexual functions such as the menstrual cycle.


The purpose of this platform is to present the latest research findings on pregnenolone and its diverse applications and to detail how it is being used in clinical practice on patients. We will keep you informed with a continuously updated selection of scientific publications.
