Pregnenolone For Better Memory
If you’ve been a reader of Dr. Wiggy’s articles over the past years you may have forgotten that he’s written a number of articles on pregnenolone.
Of course, if you took pregnenolone, you may not have forgotten that he’s written extensively on this master hormone.
Pregnenolone is one of the primary hormones that Dr. Wiggy and the other practitioners at Robinhood Integrative Health use to help balance people’s hormone levels.
The driving force behind pregnenolone supplementation is how this hormone can help to modulate the levels of more than a dozen other hormones in your body.
As we wrote earlier, affecting sexual health by influencing sex-hormone levels is one benefit of pregnenolone. But another benefit, which is likely the one you’ll notice most dramatically, is how pregnenolone can help you maintain a sharp mind, lucid thoughts, and superior thinking ability.
And this has everything to do with how pregnenolone can impact your mental well being.
Let’s show you how it works.
Pregnenolone And Your Brain – How This Hormone Affects your Brain For the Better
The truth about pregnenolone is it is capable of affecting your total health better than almost any supplement.
When it comes to your brain health, there are 3 things it’s able to do to ensure your brain remains at the peak of its ability.
The first thing it does is help to boost acetylcholine levels. Acetylcholine is a critically important neurotransmitter which is responsible for how cells inside of your brain signal each other and relay instructions on what eachother are supposed to.
There’s evidence to indicate that pregnenolone supplementation can help to improve the levels of acetylcholine in your body for better and more efficient communication within your brain.
Another way pregnenolone can help your mental capacity is through its impact on GABA. You’ve likely heard of GABA before as it’s another one of those neurotransmitters you simply can’t live without.
GABA actually helps you relax and sleep better, you can think of it as a neurotransmitter that keeps your brain (and body) in balance. There’s evidence to show that taking pregnenolone (if you’re deficient) could help improve how GABA receptors behave which is helpful at ensuring your nervous system is keeping your brain working at its best.
Lastly, pregnenolone may even help you grow new neurons which is extremely helpful for how your brain operates.
Your body’s ability to generate new neurons through neurogenesis is dependent on having healthy pregnenolone levels.
Researchers conducted studies in animals show that infusing pregnenolone sulfate helped to increase how many neurons young rats were able to grow when compared to those not given pregnenolone, this helped the researchers to conclude taking pregnenolone may be helpful at keeping your brain healthy and preventing age-related cognitive disturbances(1).
Again, these are just a few of the possible ways that pregnenolone helps your brain…there are others too.
The bottom line though, is that you’ll almost certainly feel pregnenolone working within your body, which is why you ought to get a bottle now.
