Better Sex with Pregnenolone (Yes, It's True!)
In a popular video on YouTube, actress and best-selling author Suzanne Somers hit the nail on the head when she drew the connection between aging and loss of sex hormones like Pregnenolone. She stated:
"Aging is associated with the loss of sex hormones in both men and women. Replacing those lost hormones can restore feelings of well-being, sex drive and sexual pleasure…. By doing this we can age more slowly and have a better quality of life into old age."
As Dr. Nokolas Hedberg, D.C., D.A.B.C.I. explains, "Pregnenolone is the precursor to all of your sex hormones including testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and cortisol."
And according to NaturalHealthOnline.com, "As Pregnenolone is responsible for the production of testosterone and estrogen, it can help boost a sagging sex drive."
Here's what other experts are saying, as well, about the profound sex-boosting benefits of safe, natural Pregnenolone…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for Targeted Nutrients…
Dr. Eric Braverman, M.D., writing in Life Extension magazine in 2008, states that optimizing levels of Pregnenolone as we age is "crucial to sexual health."
He explains that Pregnenolone is synthesized in the body from cholesterol, and "helps regulate GABA and serotonin levels in the brain, helping restore the feelings of pleasure derived from sex."
This is critically important because orgasm release in both men and women is controlled by the body's levels of the neurotransmitter GABA. What's more, as Dr. Braverman points out, low levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin "can result in a lack of joy and decreased feelings of intimacy."
Since Pregnenolone helps regulate our body's levels of these two key sex-enhancing neurotransmitters, it follows that excessively low Pregnenolone levels can result in loss of libido and well as loss of sexual enjoyment.
Dr. Braverman goes on to say that "in both men and women, sexual activity and performance is determined by the levels of neurotransmitters and hormones in the brain and body."
Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D., author of the book Natural Sex Boosters agrees that Pregnenolone is important to sexual pleasure. He states:
"Pregnenolone is a fascinating hormone with very pleasant effects…Some people find Pregnenolone improves energy, vision, memory, clarity of thinking, well-being, and often sexual enjoyment or libido.
…The major benefit of Pregnenolone is that it can be used in tiny dosages as hormone replacement therapy as we get older to improve vitality, energy, visual clarity, and sexual pleasure."
Dr. Susan M. Lark, M.D., who has served on the clinical faculty of Stanford University Medical School and is author of the book, Pregnenolone: Your #1 Sex Hormone, says:
"Pregnenolone is one of your most important hormones because it is a precursor hormone. It is the main hormone from which all of your sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone as well as your adrenal hormones are created in the body."
Suzanne Somers, who openly admits that both her and her husband supplement with Pregnenolone, says that at age 73 she's gone from having sex "only occasionally: to having sex twice per day. She adds:
"Pregnenolone is produced from cholesterol. It's a precursor to sex hormones including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA. Pregnenolone levels decline with age, and a deficiency can lead to anxiety, mood imbalances, greater perceived stress, poor cognitive function and lower sex drive. Pregnenolone levels can be restored to benefit cognitive function, mood, memory, cardiovascular health and increased libido."
But does Pregnenolone use really work to restore flagging sexual desire and performance? An online commenter calling himself "Smokin Joe" says Pregnenolone restored his sexual desire after only two weeks. He wrote:
"Just wanted to share that after two weeks of adding Pregnenolone to my supplement regimen I have had a notable increase in desire and sex drive. I started out with 30mg a day in the morning but backed it down to 15 mg where I seem to feel better. Also noticed erectile quality is better. Don't know how long this will last, but yes, I'll take it."
Works for Both Men and Women
In the book, The Road to Longevity, Dr. Donald McLeod, M.D. explains that Pregnenolone works equally well for both men and women. He states:
"Because Pregnenolone is a precursor to DHEA, and in turn to other sex hormones, this would tend to explain why it is capable of raising the levels of these hormones.
Further, since Pregnenolone does affect the sex hormones, it should not surprise us that it does serve somewhat different functions in men than it does in women.
In women, more of the Pregnenolone goes into the production of estrogen, while in men, more of it is used to produce testosterone. (A good thing – otherwise men would sing soprano and women would grow beards)."
According to Livestrong.com, a deficiency in Pregnenolone can result in lower levels of all sex hormones in both male or female: "Pregnenolone deficiency can manifest as symptoms related to decreased male and female sex hormones. Pregnenolone production decreases with age in both men and women, as do sex hormones."
And according to women's nutritional counselor Cara Marshall:
"Pregnenolone is an element that appears in the synthesis route of each sex hormone for both men and women, and its presence cannot be ignored. Therefore, for women, its supplementation is a universal way to improve the overall health of the hormonal economy.
…Men also benefit from supplementation with Pregnenolone, as the level decreases with the advancing years of life. Thanks to it, you can potentially prevent testosterone drop and the decrease in sexual performance which each man associates with mental discomfort.
In addition to efficient erection you can also expect a surge of vital strength, improved body composition and better general health indicators."
Stress, Sex Drive and Pregnenolone
It's long been known that Pregnenolone helps reduce stress levels. People using small amounts of Pregnenolone on a regular basis feel a sense of resilience and well-being, even in the face of stressful events. That's because Pregnenolone helps modulate the stress hormone, cortisol.
Nutritionist Chris Sandel makes some interesting points about the importance of maintaining optimal Pregnenolone levels in order to achieve optimal sex drive.
He points out that the stressful lives we lead often causes our body to divert what little Pregnenolone our body is making toward dealing with the stress rather than to its primary function of producing sex hormones. He writes:
"…what happens all too regularly is that people have stressful lives. Whereas previously stress used to be a short-lived experience with a body response that got us out of life and death situations, it's now turned on constantly.
Our survival is paramount in comparison to our need as a species to procreate. This means that whatever Pregnenolone is produced, is immediately shuttled off to make cortisol (our main stress hormone), leaving limited amounts available for our reproductive system. This is known in the biz as a ‘Pregnenolone steal'."
In other words, if you live a stressful life you might need additional Pregnenolone for your body to make sex hormones with, because the body is diverting what little Pregnenolone it makes to combating high stress levels.
Pregnenolone enthusiast and registered Nutritional Therapist Nicki Williams agrees, stating:
"Cortisol and the sex hormones are all made from the same precursor hormone, Pregnenolone. So guess what happens when you are overly stressed?
Pregnenolone gets the message to make more cortisol instead of sex hormones (as we know that our stress response takes priority over our reproductive function when we need to run away).
…So your sex hormones take a back seat, your testosterone and libido disappear and frumpy takes over from frisky!"
In short, excessive stress can rob your body of the Pregnenolone it needs to make sex hormones by diverting it to producing stress-buffering hormones instead. Therefore, if your life is stressful, keeping your Pregnenolone levels optimized through nutritional supplementation is essential if you want to enjoy better and more satisfying sex.
Affects Younger Couples, As Well
Nutritionist Chris Sandel goes on to point out that many people have trouble converting cholesterol into Pregnenolone, which means that low Pregnenolone levels are also affecting the sex lives of younger folks, as well. He says:
"In my practice I seem to get clusters of conditions…Recently I have seen a number of people with low sex drive…
It would of course be one thing if all of these people were in there 60s or 70s and had been married to the same person for 50 odd years. The spark's not what it was used to be; I could kind of accept this. But the problem is the majority are still young. People in their late 20s and early 30s who have a low sex drive or none at all.
…Pregnenolone is the mother hormone that all the rest of our hormones are made from…all other hormones flow from it. This means it's really important that the body is able to convert cholesterol to Pregnenolone. But for most people this is a problem.
If the body is not producing enough Pregnenolone from cholesterol, then there's not going to be enough to produce the sex hormones and subsequently, sex drive will remain low."
So even some younger couples might benefit from optimizing their Pregnenolone levels by supplementing with Pregnenolone. As one young online commenter put it (warning: crude language alert):
"…Pregnenolone has to be the 1st few supplements to take for your libido to be restored. I now get semi-regular morning boners. One more added benefit, I can have sex twice in a roll within a shorter time span now…Didn't think I could but apparently I can now LOL."
Does science back up the importance of optimal Pregnenolone levels in regards to sexual health?
Indeed it does. For example, a study published in the Annals of Psychotherapy in the summer of 2008, titled "Sexual and Emotional Health in Men" by Dr. Daniel S. Stein, M.D., concluded:
"Pregnenolone, another pro-hormone, is also a vital pro-hormone building block in the cascade of molecular events, which lead to sex hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.
In its final form, Pregnenolone has powerful effects on the nervous system, similar to those of neurotransmitters (Baulieu, 1991).
This enhanced neurosensitivity may reveal itself in improved genital sensitivity, thus enhancing the facility for arousal, erection, and orgasm.
…Neurosteroid levels diminish with advancing age; Pregnenolone supplementation may counter this loss."

The Bottom Line
So there you have it. The bottom line is that Pregnenolone appears to be the key to our sexual hormonal health.
As we've seen in previous articles, Pregnenolone has many other benefits, as well, including anti-aging benefits, anti-stress benefits, mood-boosting benefits, memory, mental clarity and alertness-boosting benefits, energy-boosting benefits and more.
But its sexual health-boosting benefits may be the most important of them all. And the simplest way to find out is to try it!
