If you’re interested in the benefits of hormones, you’ve probably heard of testosterone and HGH. Many people think of testosterone as the gold standard for gaining lean muscle mass and that HGH alone will get rid of mid-section fat.  This is true, but it’s only part of the overall picture.

Pregnenolone is a frequently overlooked player when it comes to optimizing hormones in men and women. From improving your mood to losing stubborn mid-section fat, this hormone plays a crucial role.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a much-talked-about but poorly defined disorder. Typically CFS presents itself as disabling exhaustion. By disabling, I don’t mean being tired in the afternoon and needing a nap. People with CFS can’t get out of bed, go out with friends, or live their best lives.
