We’ve all heard so much about Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative illnesses that we’re on the lookout for the first signs of something going wrong – and that is almost always some decline in memory function. As soon as we begin to notice gaps in memory, or forgetfulness, we almost certainly begin to worry that we have something seriously wrong with us.
The fact is, however, that very often memory degradation is the result not of the onset of neurodegeneration but a lack of the hormone pregnenolone. As few if any doctors test for the levels of this hormone in the blood, it usually goes unrecognized. There are some clues, however, as pregnenolone deficiency often comes with additional symptoms such as:
If a person is suffering from memory impairment plus one or more of these additional symptoms they should strongly encourage their physician to test for pregnenolone serum levels. The good news is that it is easy to obtain pregnenolone dietary supplements from most health food stores. For most people 50mg per day, taken in the evening, will be more than enough to restore normal levels and metabolic function after a few weeks of the regime.
