Understanding Adrenal Function

Story at-a-glance -

  • Pregnenolone is a steroidal hormone manufactured primarily in your adrenal glands from its precursor, cholesterol, and has a number of beneficial effects, including enhancing your memory and reducing stress-induced fatigue
  • Pregnenolone is the precursor from which nearly all other steroid hormones are made, including DHEA, progesterone, testosterone, estrogens, and cortisol
  • If your adrenal glands are stressed, your pregnenolone levels will drop; there are many causes of adrenal stress, including psychological stress, inadequate exercise or sleep, illness or injury, or inadequate nutrition
  • Symptoms of adrenal stress include low body temperature, weakness, irritability, depression, poor concentration, excess hunger, insomnia, and a number of others
  • Maintaining strong adrenal function is important for optimizing your cortisol level, controlling blood sugar, insulin levels, and overall physical fitness
