Pregnenolone is a steroid hormone and a precursor (or building block) for all other steroid hormones in the body. Made from cholesterol, it is produced naturally in the adrenal glands and in small amounts by many other organs and tissues including the brain, skin, liver, and retina. Pregnenolone's role in human biology cannot be understated as it is converted directly into DHEA which then converts to testosterone and estrogens. Pregnenolone also converts directly into progesterone which upon conversion produces estrogens, cortisol, and aldosterone - hormones necessary for basic metabolic processes throughout the body.

Early studies of pregnenolone showed its benefits to be an energizing, anti-stress agent for the body. When given to factory workers and pilots, they reported less fatigue as well as an enhanced sense of happiness and well-being. Further studies corroborate these early findings and show additional benefits to include memory enhancement, mental clarity, and mood elevation. Pregnenolone modulates two key nerve receptors in the brain: NMDA receptors and GABA receptors. It enhances NMDA receptor function which is involved in alertness, memory, and learning functions. It also inhibits GABA receptors responsible for relaxation, mental slowing, sedation, and sleep. Thus, too little NMDA response combined with too much GABA action promotes mental sluggishness and depression. Conversely, by raising NMDA activity and lowering excessive GABA activity, pregnenolone acts as a natural antidepressant.
