Could Support Improved Cognition
Scientists have proposed that levels of neurosteroids such as pregnenolone could serve as biological “markers” of cognitive aging.
Some human studies have also shown a correlation between neurosteroid levels, especially DHEA (which Pregnenolone leads to), and cognitive function.
Moral of the story: as your brain ages, your natural pregnenolone levels go down. Pregnenolone is a naturally-occurring hormone that plays an important role in brain function. Supplementation can therefore help support your overall brain health, learning and memory.
