Pregnenolone 25 mg is often referred to as the grandparent precursor to steroid hormones in mammals.
Recent studies show that pregnenolone is important for the function of brain, nervous tissue, liver, pancreas, reproductive tissues, pituitary and skin.
- Pregnenolone is synthesized from cholesterol in the mitochondria of adrenal glands.
- Pregnenolone is also made to a lesser extent in the brain, liver, skin, testes and ovaries.
- Pregnenolone is released from the mitochondria into the cytosol where it can be converted to DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) or to progesterone.
- DHEA serves as a precursor compound to the androgens and the estrogens through androstenedione as the intermediate compound.
