Have been researching what hormones may be low or depleting as we age and Pregnenolone came up.
My husband said he felt very clear minded after taking this and I'm not sure how it's working for myself but along with some other hormone related supplements it seems to be doing great :)

This works for me
I temporarily switched to this lower dosage of DHEA. I now can increase the dosage to moderate my intake by taking more of the 10mg. capsules.

Highly effective and incredibly inexpensive
I was originally using a product that Swanson's sold from another manufacturer when I started having hot flashes from hormonal changes that occur in women of my age. Once Swanson's stopped carrying that brand I found a Swanson's equivalent but they were still a little pricey.
Read an article in a woman's magazine and decided to try these. So glad I did! I take 1 in the morning when I get up, if I feel the need in the early afternoon I might take another and then 1 before bed. So at the most I take 3 of these a day.
So, for $1.99 a month (the price now) I get a constant even keel in the hot/cold department vs the $20 up a month I was paying before.
Who could ask for more?

Since I have been taking this product and a 50mg DHEA...I sleep...sleep...sleep all night long!! I was taking it during the day and wondered why others said they had energy, when I felt sluggish. I take the two products about an hour before I want to go to sleep, and I am out! Sometimes I feel groggy the next day, but not always! :)

Great inexpensive endrocine support
I've used Swanson Brand Pregnenolone for several years, and couldn't be happier in it's support of my endocrine system. And it's really inexpensive!

Works for me
I'll try this again - maybe the third time (review) is a charm.
I tried DHEA and it was too strong for me. I then tried this pregnenolone, after doing some research, and I feel a noticeable difference. I feel more stable and positive in a way that I haven't in a long time. I was having some hot flashes and they went away. I feel more energetic. I would highly recommend this product.

This works for me
My blood work revealed that I was low in DHEA. My nurse practitioner recommended DHEA supplements. I tried it but it seemed too strong and and yet I didn't notice a huge difference in my problem areas. I started reading about pregnenolone and decided to try it instead. Wow! It helps me. I feel more stable and notice more energy and a positive feeling I haven't had in a long time. Also, the price cannot be beat anywhere. I will continue using this product.

I have had excellent results from this. It stopped my hot flashes & seems to balance you out.

A good dose to start with
I have been trying a lot of different supplements for my husband to increase his energy with less than satisfactory results. He still takes a couple of them but when I added this I finally got the response I was hoping for. He said he wasn't as tired when he got home every day. For those who are leery about trying it this is a very conservative dose that might work. Also very affordable.

For the older athlete
It is hard to say exactly what works or not, especially when you are taking several supplements all at the same time. I do believe this is helping to some degree. I know it hasn't made things worse. I would still recommend it for the aging athlete.

Great product - Great value
My wife and I both take this 10mg of pregnenolone with 10mg of DHEA. We take them both first thing in the morning. For us, they work great together. There is a great difference from when we take them and when we do not!

I started out using DHEA and have then experimented with this. Now I use 10mg DHEA and 10mg Pregnenolone daily. I found the combination to be great! I have much more energy. When I get tired I recuperate more quickly. My mental alertness is now much higher than it has been in years.

This product is helping me to re-balance my hormones....no more hot flashes!!!

My husband and I both take this supplement. It seems to help our thinking and also seems to help in the libido department as well. We feel it's a good product to take along with our other supplements.

Great Product - Excellent Value
I've tried different doses of Pregnenolone and 10 mg morning and night is perfect for me. The quality seems good and I love the fact that it contains minimal ingredients.

Help with menopause
I was recommended this product by a coworker several years ago to help me with night sweats and other symptoms of menopause. I really feel that this product helps minimize the symptoms. I have run out of the products on a couple of occasions and the sweats have returned but once I take the product I can sleep well during the night. I definately recommend it.

Product I always use
one of the best products. It really helps. I know when I haven't taken it. Never want to be without.

An excellent price on this product for replacing something the the body needs but may make less of due to age or other issues.

Like this product
Use this product every day and it works for me as well as others and the price is very reasonable.
Also I have recommended it to my friends and they are using it now.

Just great effectiveness, great value
Since taking this product, I notice I can focus with more clarity, experience less hormonal fluctuation and no "lows" just before menstruation. I feel I am back to where I was 15 to 20 years ago.
Plus, the price is right. No side effects for me either!

Sometimes the Best costs the Least
When DHEA became available I experienced the benefit very rapidly. I had never heard of Pregnenolone at that time. Since 'discovering' Pregnenolone a number of years ago, I have found that [ for me] the benefits are much more substantial than DHEA . I find it as a more 'natural' precursor at a very inexpensive price and without any "Important Safety Statements".
