It's kind of a tricky thing to raise because when you take it's precursors, such as progesterone or cortisol, you end up raising and potentially unbalancing many other hormones. It seems progesterone is the closest you can get... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allopregnanolone https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganaxolone So what's the point drob31? I think cortisol and DHEA aren't the only two culprits when pregnenelone is low. Furthermore, pregnenelone steal may be occuring because of low cortisol, but cortisol itself may be diverting down a specific pathway, and also starves the body of allopregnenolone, since progesterone reserves are used up. Perhaps the pregnenelone is stolen to begin with for production of cortisol and non-allopregnenelone metabolites because inflammation in the body.
