    So to be clear, a woman supplementing Stressnon topically is more likely to have conversion into progesterone? I was confused because you said benefits to each method, but only mentioned topical for both androgens and progesterone.

    I have seen more cortisol-lowering with topical pregnenolone than with oral and also more sedation. Both of these are symptoms of more progesterone, so this is my explanation.

    Do you think a single dose of stressnon daily would be adequate to recover from being "a product of a few very stressed generations" as you worded it?

    Thank you!

    It should definitely help improve the condition. Depending on how stressed you are it make take months, but adding things like thyroid and anti-serotonin should make the situation much much better and not different from a non-stressed person.

    What happened to the bottles of pregnenelone in oil ?

    Do you have any leftovers ? I would be very interested, I have ordered roughly 20 products from you previously.

    It's been more than a year since we stopped doing that formulation. Pregnenolone does not dissolve well in oil unfortunately. It also does not dissolve well in vitamin E, so not many choices left for solvents. Peat wrote about the poor solubility of pregnenolone.
    Sorry we can't be of much help here.

    Wow - incredible product. I have been taking about 20 drops a day for the past week. Here's some thoughts,

    For the first time in about 3 years, I have energy from morning until midnight. No afternoon slump, stable energy throughout.
    Now previously, I had taken pansterone, only 4 drops a day, and I never felt this. If anything, I felt slightly worse, maybe there was too much DHEA in my system.
    I have much less brain fog, thoughts seem clearer, I am calmer and think normally. It's quite sedating, but doesn't make me tired.

    Topically, on the skin. Some people choose to rub them on the gums but I cannot endorse such use.

    Wow interesting. I'm excited to give this a try. Sometimes I experience really stressful situations at work and at home (roommates) and I find myself experiencing a lot of anxiety and trying to keep the stress manageable through deep breathing doesn't help. Thanks a ton!!

    Any recommendations on dosing to start out for a 200 lb 28 year old male? Suffering from sore joints, moderately low temps and pulse etc.

    No, the 20 drops is the amount of liquid containing 20mg pregnenolone. The DMSO is a lot less than that but even at 20 drops it would be 1g DMSO, which should not even have a systemic effect.

    I think starting at 10 drops (half the daily dose) would be good for a week and then changing the dose as needed.

    I am considering it, but so far the interest in tocopherol/oil based steroids has been very weak and especially after we improved the DMSO formulation so it does not cause much/any skin irritation. So, I will give it another month to see if interests in the tocopherol versions picks up and then decide.

    Thanks @haidut. How many doses do you typically recommend spreading throughout the day? I saw in an earlier post you mentioned it is probably favorable from an androgenic standpoint in several different small doses.
