(NaturalNews) Both pregnenolone and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) are naturally-occurring hormones produced by the human body to regulate cell production, maintain cognitive function, and promote proper bodily growth and sexual function. But a new law recently passed by legislators in California mandates that, in order to remain on the market, natural supplement varieties of these hormones must contain warnings about supposed side effects, all of which are unproven and false.

According to a recent announcement made by the Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA) California legislators have altered the state's Health and Safety Code, Section 110423(b) to mandate that all pregnenolone and DHEA supplements sold within the state contain a label that warns of "serious adverse health effects." These allegedly include rapid heartbeat, dizziness, blurred vision and seizure, though none of this has ever been shown in trials.

Pregnenolone, which is also known as the "master" or "mother" hormone, is produced in various bodily organs and tissues within the body. The body converts pregnenolone into a number of other vital hormones like DHEA, which are then converted into androgens, melatonin, estrogens, and testosterone. All of these hormones are, of course, necessary for maintaining life. More specifically, they regulate healthy brain function and energy levels, and prevent diseases like Alzheimer's and arthritis from taking hold.

Since DHEA is an offshoot of pregnenolone, its functions are similar. It specifically helps build muscle strength and bone mineral density, as well as boost adrenal function, which is a system of the body responsible for dealing with stress, injury and disease. DHEA is also linked to maintaining proper pituitary and thyroid gland function, and it also helps sustain healthy cognitive and mental performance.

DHEA and pregnenolone are natural, safe, and patent free, which is why they are being targeted

Both pregnenolone and DHEA are abundantly safe -- the body produces them naturally, after all -- and extensive scientific studies have proven their safety. According to ANH-USA, there were 380 papers published just last year about the health benefits of DHEA, for instance. And up until the 1940s when the drug industry's cortisol took its place in the limelight, pregnenolone had been extensively studied and determined to to be safe and effective as well.

Thousands of Americans rely on these two supplements to maintain their health, and not a single shred of evidence has ever shown that either one is harmful in any way. But because they are natural and cannot be patented for obscene profits, drug companies in conjunction with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and various other federal and state agencies have been targeting them for extinction.

This latest scheme to force manufacturers of pregnenolone and DHEA to affix false warning labels to their products is nothing but an underhanded attempt to scare the public away from these safe and effective supplements. So in response, ANH-USA has set up an Action Alert through which you can contact the California legislature and urge a reversal to this insane mandate.
