Pregnenolone is known as the mother – or master - hormone. All of the major hormones, including DHEA, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and melatonin, are derived from it. An insufficiency of pregnenolone can lead to shortages in these downstream hormones. Pregnenolone is made from cholesterol and declines with age, stress, exposure to environmental toxins and over-stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.*
As a precursor to dozens of hormones, pregnenolone is needed to help the body maintain optimum hormone levels, playing a critical role in many functions.*
BioMatrix pregnenolone is derived from an extraction of the steroidal backbone of the Diosgenin yam. Once ingested, the body cannot tell the difference because this exogenous form of pregnenolone and the one it produces are molecularly identical. BioMatrix liquid pregnenolone has an absorption rate significantly higher than pill or tablet forms.
• Alcohol base for optimal bioavailability
• Micronized form absorbed up to 3X better than non-micronized forms
• The “master” hormone - precursor to all steroidal hormones.
• Sustainable ingredient sources
