This test used liquid chromatography, so it is accurate for the measurement of pregenenolone. Pregnenolone is known as the mother hormone. All other steroids including testosterone and estrogen are derived from this important hormone. For this reason, optimal blood levels of pregnenolone are critical for a healthy hormone balance.
However, pregnenolone does more. It is important for proper brain development, cognition, memory and mood. These dramatic effects on the brain are why pregnenolone is known as a neuro-active steroid.
Fasting is not required. Pregnenolone supplementation should be taken approximately 2 hours before the blood draw.
NOTE: If you are taking biotin, please stop it 72 hours before the blood draw since it may interfere with hormone blood tests.
