coupletalking.jpgBetter Sex with Pregnenolone!

In a recent 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.” 

Experts Agree

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 71 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.” — Smokin Joe

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).” 

— Donald McLeod, M.D., The Road to Longevity

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.”

— Annals of Psychotherapy, summer 2008, “Sexual and Emotional Health in Men,” by Dr. Daniel S. Stein, M.D., Michael A. Baer, Ph.D., Sc.D. and Nancy C. Bruemmer, Ph.D., M.D.

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!

pregnenolonebottle.jpegWhere to Obtain the Very Best Form of Pregnenolone...

Unlike synthetic prescription steroid hormones which can sometimes have terrifying side effects, Pregnenolone is completely natural (made from an extract of the Dioscorea yam), and clinical studies have shown it to be virtually free of side effects when used as directed.

Targeted Nutrients carries therapeutic-quality Pregnenolone in the highly recommended 10 mg. dosage. You get 60 tablets per bottle – a one-month supply for the average person.

Unlike other vendors who sell cheap, Chinese-made Pregnenolone, Targeted Nutrients brand Pregnenolone is U.S. manufactured, produced in an FDA-approved, certified GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes) laboratory, so you can rest assured of its impressive quality and safety.

The tiny chewable tablets are sweet-tasting, cherry-flavored, and can easily be broken in half for people who prefer to use lower dosages.

People normally take between 5 mg. and 10 mg. per day for age-related benefits as part of a long-term anti-aging program.

How To Get Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone Nearly "At Cost"

Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone regularly sells for $29.95 per bottle. And if you've ever seen any of our occasional special money-saving "get acquainted" offers, you know you can sometimes obtain a single bottle for as low as $24.95.

We've even had sales where you could buy our special brand of high-quality Pregnenolone for only $17.95 per bottle...BUT, you had to buy 12 bottles at a time to get that super-low discount price. That was practically like giving it away.

But guess what?

During this one-time special money-saving offer – which lasts for the next 3 days only – you can get Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone for the low, low "At Cost" price of only $14.95 per bottle – the absolute, rock-bottom lowest price we've ever been able to offer it!

Yes, I said only $14.95 per bottle! And no, you don't have to buy dozens of bottles to get that special, nearly "At Cost" price. Not at all.

Indeed, if you'd simply like to try out a single bottle of Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone to see what all of the hoopla is about, you can do so at that special price.

Or, you can buy three bottles...or six...or 12...it doesn't matter because, for the next 3 days the price is going to be only $14.95 per bottle regardless of how many, or how few, bottles of Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone you order.

There are only two "catches" to this very special, money-saving offer:

Catch #1: This special money-saving offer lasts only for the next 3 days, and then it's gone for good.

Catch #2: At the astonishingly super-low price of only $14.95 per bottle, I have to restrict each sale to no more than 12 bottles per order to make sure there's enough Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone to go around for everyone who might want in on this astonishing deal.

That's it. There are no other "catches." No other restrictions. I just want everyone to have an equal chance at this never-again-to-be-offered, super-low price on high-quality Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone.

So if you've ever been looking for an opportunity to try Targeted Nutrients Pregnenolone, or better yet, to stock up on it, this is the time!

There's never been another sale like this in the entire history of Targeted Nutrients, and quite possibly there never will be again. But remember, there are now only 3 days left, and then this special, one-time-only money-saving offer is gone for good.

Why Such a Low Price?

Why are we making this special offer? The answer is simple: It's because we always wait for the good stuff. And when the good stuff becomes available, we buy several pallets full of it from our U.S. manufacturer.

You see, high-quality Pregnenolone is very hard to get. That wasn't true, even just 10 years ago, when most Pregnenolone was manufactured right here in the good ole' U.S.A., or in Western Europe.

But today things have changed. Unfortunately, most Pregnenolone on the market today is manufactured in China, where quality and purity standards are low to non-existent. (Remember the melamine scandal?)

So we never buy the cheap stuff from China. Instead, whenever a batch of truly high-quality Pregnenolone becomes available from our favorite U.S. manufacturer, we buy thousands upon thousands of bottles worth of it at a time.

But this time we overdid it. I mean, we really overdid it.

You see, when a much larger cache of high-quality Pregnenolone became available from our favorite U.S. manufacturer, we agreed to purchase the entire production run. Why? Because we were frustrated with running out so quickly and having to make our customers wait for the good stuff to become available again.

And now our warehouse is absolutely overflowing with bottles of this high-quality Pregnenolone – so much so, there's barely any room for the other supplements in our supplement line!

So, in order to clear out some room in our warehouse before new batches of our other supplements arrive from the manufacturer, we're doing the one thing we know all of our customers will love:

We're offering our high-quality, American-made Pregnenolone to our favorite customers at a fraction of the normal price.

Indeed, for the next 3 days only, you can get our high-quality Pregnenolone nearly "At Cost." You pay just $14.95 per bottle. And yes, we'll still make a few bucks off of each bottle. But I can guarantee you this:

You'll never again see this kind of super-low price for our high-quality, American-made Pregnenolone. We've learned our lesson about over-buying. And you get to reap the benefit of our mistake if you act quickly and decisively.

And no, these aren't "expired" bottles, or anything like that. It's the real deal. The best stuff on the market today. And when you try it, you're going to be astonished at the quality and purity, and the pleasant, uplifting effects you'll enjoy after taking it for just a few short days.

So again, if you've ever wanted to try high-quality, U.S.-manufactured Pregnenolone, or if you've ever wanted to stock up on it, this is the time to do so. I can't imagine a scenario in which we'll ever be able to offer it at this kind of "At Cost" pricing again.

P.P.S. – What Experienced Pregnenolone Users Are Saying…

“Within only a couple of days of using pregnenolone, I noticed benefits such as decreased ‘brain fog’, sharper thinking and reasoning ability and a happier and more relaxed attitude. Life’s daily hurdles don’t “loom” so large now and I handle things better as a result.

I take one 10mg tablet each morning and on occasion double the dose if I know I’m going to work through a particularly challenging day. I am able to honestly attribute the changes to the pregnenolone since I changed nothing else in my daily routine other than the addition of the supplement.

I was actually surprised that I was able to tell a difference so quickly and recommend the supplement to others. To check my results, I quit taking the pregnenolone after a few months for a week. That was enough and I immediately began taking it again. I call it my ‘happy pill’!”

— Tamra B.

“Within several hours of taking it, I felt like someone turned a light on inside my head. My foggy thinking cleared up. My energy returned. The feeling of malaise and depression simply vanished. It was like coming out of a dark tunnel and shedding a 75 pound backpack at the same time. I felt light and free again.

It really put a lift back into my step, and left me with a profound sense of confidence and well-being. What’s more, my libido soared from about a two to a nine on a scale of ten.

Since that time I’ve used pregnenolone periodically, for up to several weeks at a time, and always to great effect. It’s my first choice in nutritional supplements whenever I’m feeling low on energy or stamina, or just want that extra mental and physical boost.”

— S.S.J., Las Vegas, NV

“I’ve noticed that I have a much more cheerful disposition, and I actually feel like getting things done again. I’m much more motivated. It has definitely helped put the pleasure back into my life.”

— Paul S., FL
