Texas Age Management Institute in the Greater Houston area offers men in Houston comprehensive Age Management Programs to reduce the effects of deficient pregnenolone. For men that may be suffering from low pregnenolone, several different diagnostic tests that include assessments of balance, oxygen intake, cognitive testing, hormone levels, heart health, strength, and a bio-letric scan to evaluate how your body is functioning will be performed. These tests can give the doctor a clear picture of the patient’s deficiencies, and a trained Age Management Specialist can help men determine which treatments are best suited for the patient’s unique health conditions. The clinic’s comprehensive program includes several different non-invasive therapies to help patients regain health and balance pregnenolone levels. Some of the therapies that are included in the clinic’s comprehensive program include Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Telomerase activator, Nutritional Supplements, Exercise Plans, and Nutritional Programs. Men in the Greater Houston area can enjoy a physician-monitored program that is customized to suit unique needs and improve overall health.
Pregnenolone is an incredibly important hormone for men, which is also produced in the adrenal glands and partly in the skin, brain, liver, and testicles. In men, pregnenolone is needed in order to synthesize testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, and while estrogen and progesterone are mainly female sex hormones, they are also present in men in smaller amounts and are responsible for vital functions. Estrogen helps men to keep a sharp memory and maintaining skin elasticity, while progesterone can helps in preventing prostate enlargement and reducing water retention. When pregnenolone becomes deficient, the body may be unable to produce vital sex hormones, which can cause their related functions to suffer.
Pregnenolone can decline for several reasons, some of which may include aging, eating a diet high in triglycerides and trans fats, stress, or excessive alcohol intake. While cholesterol is needed to produce pregnenolone, an unhealthy diet can actually block the synthesis of pregnenolone. High stress in the body can cause pregnenolone to get broken down and made into cortisol, which is the hormone that helps to reduce the effects of stress. In men, the syndrome of andropause, which is male testosterone decline, can cause levels of pregnenolone to dramatically fall. By the time most men are in the 60’s, they only produce around 30% of the pregnenolone that they produced during their thirties. Some of the functions that pregnenolone is responsible for maintaining include:
- Helping Learning & Alertness
- Repairing Nerve Damage
- Improving Moods
- Helping Sleep
- Balancing Other Sex Hormones
- Enhancing Nerve Transmission
- Improving Memory
- Improving Stress Management
- Reducing Inflammation
Pregnenolone & Anti-Aging
Pregnenolone is one of the most important hormones in the male body, as it helps the levels of other hormones to rise and fall as needed. It is also known as a biomarker for aging, and measuring levels of pregnenolone almost always accurately relays a person’s physiological age. When pregnenolone levels decline, other hormone levels also decline because pregnenolone is building block for several other hormones, including testosterone. In men, balancing pregnenolone levels can help them to prevent the signs of aging by allowing for the synthesis of other important hormones, such as testosterone.
In men, pregnenolone can help levels of testosterone to stay balanced, and this can prevent many of the signs of male hormone decline that occur during andropause, which is the phase of male hormone decline. Some of the symptoms that can be prevented with adequate levels of pregnenolone and testosterone include low libido, erectile dysfunction, arthritic pain, insomnia, poor memory, lack of stamina and endurance, muscle atrophy, mood changes, and fatigue. Many men have been able to more efficiently produce testosterone and eliminate the signs of testosterone decline by maintaining healthy levels of pregnenolone.
Pregnenolone also plays a large role in improving the integrity of the nervous system. It prevents the degeneration of myelin sheaths, which cover the nerves and play a role in the transmission of different messages. It can also help to promote GABA receptors in the brain, which transmit feelings of calmness and reduce depression, stress, or anxiety. Pregnenolone can also help men to keep a sharper memory, and it has been known to potentially prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s. Balancing pregnenolone with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help men to prevent the many signs of aging and improve overall health and wellness levels.
Men in the Greater Houston area that are suffering from low levels of pregnenolone can improve their overall health with comprehensive Age Management Programs. The clinic’s extensive lab tests can allow an Age Management Physician to determine the ideal treatment plans for each patient. Therapies such as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men to reduce the effects of prenenolone decline and aging. Nutritional supplementation can help men to boost nutrition, and exercise regimens can help men to naturally improve hormone levels and boost their health. Another therapy, which is Telomerase activator may also reduce the effects of aging because it can protect the integrity of the DNA and improve the functioning of cells. The clinic’s comprehensive programs are physician monitored, and at the Texas Age Management Institute in the Greater Houston area, men can balance their hormones and boost overall health.
