Created by Neuro-Immune Specialist, Dr. Kendal Stewart, Pregnenolone Plus is a custom formula that provides pregnenolone and the active precursor niacinamide for ultimate delivery of pregnenolone and aid in the protection of the mitochondrial. Pregnenolone is the key precursor pro-hormone involved in maintaining sufficient steroid hormone levels in the body. It is the precursor (building block) for other hormones in the body including cortisol, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and aldosterone.
Without pregnenolone there can be no human steroid hormone production.
Pregnenolone is known to modulate at least two key nerve receptors systems in the brain: NMDA receptors and GABA receptors. NMDA receptors are involved in learning, memory, and alertness. GABA receptors are involved in mood stability, relaxation, sex drive and sleep.
Niacinamide or otherwise known as Vitamin B3 works with vitamin B1, riboflavin (Vitamin B2), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), pantothenic acid, and biotin to break down and convert the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in food into energy to help support the mitochondria. The involvement of niacin, an essential B vitamin, in cellular energy production makes it important for healthy cardiovascular function, nervous system function and immune function.
