Pregnenolone/DHEA 50mg/50mg (RX)
Prescription only. Two month prescription
Pregnenolone is largely converted into two other “youth-associated” protective hormones, progesterone and DHEA. At the age of 30, both men and women produce roughly 30 to 50 mg. of pregnenolone daily. When taken orally, even in the powdered form, it is absorbed fairly well. One dose of approximately 100mg keeps acting for about a week, as absorption continues along the intestine, and as it is “recycled” in the body. Part of this long lasting effect is because it improves the body’s ability to produce its own pregnenolone. It tends to improve function of the thyroid and other glands, and this “normalizing” effect on the other glands helps to account for its wide range of beneficial effects.
DHEA synthetic version of this hormone is available in pharmacies as a tablet, capsule, powder, topical cream and gel. Many people use DHEA as an anti-ageing therapy. Doctors recommend this hormone to improve physical performance, treat depression, and treat the symptoms of menopause. Furthermore, DHEA can also be used for increasing sex drive, build muscles, testicular atrophy and improve some health conditions.
