Bioidentical Pregnenolone Replacement Therapy in Saint Petersburg, FL
Primarily produced in the adrenal glands and manufactured by cholesterol, pregnenolone is a crucial precursor hormone which helps to synthesize steroid hormones like testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, estrogen and melatonin. In fact, pregnenolone is often referred to as the mother of all steroid hormones, yet, until recently, insufficient spotlight has been put on this key hormone.
In addition to producing important hormones, pregnenolone itself is essential for nerve and brain function and, when pregnenolone levels are within healthy range, can help you to better cope with stress and improve your overall quality of life.
Naturally as you age, pregnenolone declines, leading to symptoms of reduced mood, impaired cognitive function and decreased sex drive. For those with a pregnenolone deficiency, it is imperative to correct this hormonal imbalance, as low levels of pregnenolone can create imbalances in the steroid hormones it helps produce.
A pregnenolone hormonal imbalance can be treated through the use of bioidentical pregnenolone, a form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) which utilizes hormones that are molecularly identical to the ones you produce in your body.

Pregnenolone Imbalance Symptoms
Low pregnenolone levels in the body can manifest as symptoms related to estrogen and testosterone deficiency; this may be due to the pregnenolone deficiency itself or due to the fact that it can create deficiencies in male and female sex hormones. Common pregnenolone deficiency symptoms include:
- Impaired cognitive function
- Impaired memory
- Decreased sex drive
- Hot flashes
- Weight gain
The list above is just a small portion of the many symptoms that can occur due to hormonal imbalance. These imbalances can occur in both men and women; they typically occur around middle age. Luckily, the symptoms above can be alleviated with the use of bioidentical pregnenolone.
