Most people who use hormone supplements are familiar with DHEA but the less known hormone supplement, Pregnenolone, is definitely worth considering. Pregnenolone is known as the parent of all hormones. All other sex hormones are derived from it, including DHEA. By age 75 we produce only about 40% of our youthful levels.
Pregnenolone is the first hormone that generates a range of neurohormones in the brain which are known to affect nerve cell growth and to modulate mood. Pregnenolone therefore has a dominant effect in a wide range of nervous system functions, including memory function, alertness and well-being. Increasing
It seems like once a week I’m asked the same question. “So Casey, how much vitamin D should I be taking? Can I take too much? After all, you sell multiple doses.” Well, this is true, we do sell multiple doses and also in different forms. So let me give you a little insight on Vitamin D.
First of all, Vitamin D is arguably the most important vitamin. 400 International Units (IU) is the recommended daily allowance according to the FDA but that number is really outdated.
A couple of decades ago a patient referred to as SM went to doctors in Iowa with a rare condition. The disease causes lesions in a particular area in the brain called the amygdala. Through working with her, doctors and scientists discovered that the amygdala is the area in the brain that allows us to feel afraid, and because of her condition, SM has not ever have that feeling.

I never thought that this day would come, but there has been a lot of coverage of this topic in the health world over the last couple of weeks.
It turns out that people are starting to do the math, and with money tight in the pockets of Americans, we may see the decline in the purchase of all Natural foods.

Stress has many ways to kill you. It hormonally promotes belly fat and love handles, causes diabetes, and, of course, leads to high blood pressure and heart attacks. So when you're uber-anxious, it may feel relieving to stuff your face with your favorite fatty and sugary comfort foods, but in reality you're feeding the beast and exacerbating the life-threatening effects of stress.
So, sadly, no: Eating crap can't save you. But there may just be a food that can help protect you from the crazy life you lead. Cell-biology researchers at Emory
FORT WORTH, TX -- The “M” word – menopause – comes into play for every woman round about age 51, although the ending of the natural menstrual cycle can occur as early as the 30s and some women don’t enter the territory until their 60s.

They sound...ominous. Time to clear up the mystery of what, exactly, free radicals are―and learn how to combat them.
First the science lesson: A free radical is an unstable molecule, one whose naturally paired electrons have been split up, explains Anne Chapas, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the New York University School of Medicine, in New York City.

“Doctors and nurses need to ‘bust the myth’ that cancer patients should simply rest to recover,” The Daily Telegraph has reported. It says that a charity has found only one in five cancer patients who have been through treatment have been told how regular physical activity could benefit them.
