DHEA for Men

DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone, is extremely important for men 35 and up. As a hormone precursor, DHEA is metabolized by the testicles into testosterone. A little intracellular testosterone is also produced as DHEA is absorbed into the dermis. Therefore, although DHEA cream is beneficial for healthy testosterone production in men, routine testing ensures adequate levels are maintained. 

DHEA is also the only substance in the human body that counteracts the inflammatory effects of cortisol.  Medical expert and Twist 25 originator, Dr John R. Woodward, M.D. advises, “For optimal health, the DHEA to cortisol ratio should be 10:1.” 

The #1 cause of death for men is heart disease. An informative article by cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Dwight Lundell, M.D., explains that, contrary to conventional belief, cholesterol level is not the main thing that causes heart disease. Rather, it’s chronic inflammation. “Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the walls of the blood vessels and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.”1

Take note, men: regular daily exercise, eating a diet high in fresh green vegetables and using bioidentical Twist 25 DHEA cream can help reduce the risk of heart disease.

DHEA also reduces the risks of all types of cancer.  Medical research shows that maintaining good DHEA levels significantly reduces the risks of cancer, the #2 risk of death for men.2

The #3 cause of death for men is stroke. A very important risk factor for stroke is hypertension (high blood pressure). So, controlling high blood pressure is crucial to reducing risk of stroke. Turns out that maintaining a proper DHEA level, exercising regularly and eating a diet high in green cruciferous vegetables also helps reduce high blood pressure and stroke.

Applying Twist 25 DHEA cream daily enables men 35 and up to maintain healthy hormone levels, reduces risk of heart disease, cancer and stroke; and DHEA also supports strong bones, healthy cartilage and a strong immune system.

Should men use Twist 25 DHEA cream? Yes.  DHEA is always a safe, non-addictive first step for men to maintain healthy hormone levels. It is much better to maintain good health than try to regain health once it is lost. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Use Twist 25 DHEA cream. Make your own hormones.

Is DHEA Safe? How to use DHEA



Is DHEA Safe?

Yes. As natural and safe as water and sun light. There are no dangerous side effects from DHEA.

DHEA is the abbreviation for dehydroepiandrosterone, the most abundant hormone precursor or pro-hormone in the human body. DHEA is a large carbon chain molecule that is a crucial building block or base foundation for other smaller molecules, called hormones that are produced from it. DHEA is produced and processed in the adrenal glands, gonads, and dermis.

DHEA was first identified in 1931 by Dr. Adolf Butenandt, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1939. Frequently called “the anti-aging hormone” or "mother of all hormones", DHEA is a base for more than 50 hormones that are smaller or more specific carbon chain molecules in cascade of human metabolic biochemistry. DHEA is a precursor for all estrogenic and androgenic hormones. Humans make DHEA naturally from birth. 

Men and women produce more and more DHEA every year to about age 25, when levels are at their peak. After age 25, DHEA levels begin to decline at a rate of about two percent per year thereafter.


What does DHEA do?
One of the primary roles for DHEA is a base hormone precursor. Hormones are the chemical messengers in the body that help it function. DHEA also supports the immune system allowing for a greater activity of natural killer (NK) cells. Low DHEA levels are associated with many diseases of aging, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, depression and dementia.

DHEA promotes tissue formation. So after exercise, DHEA counterbalances the inflammatory effects of cortisol. So it helps reduce soreness after workouts, and helps us to rebuild muscle, cartilage and bone. DHEA also serves as a base for sebum (skin oil), protecting skin cells from both UV and chemical carcinogens. In addition, DHEA stimulates formation of connective tissue and cartilage and improves bone strength.

DHEA supports:
  • Energy, focus and mental acuity
  • Immune system
  • Lean muscle tone
  • Bone strength
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Libido and sexual performance
  • Deep REM sleep
  • Softer, more hydrated skin

DHEA reduces:
  • Abdominal Fat
  • Risk of Cancer
  • Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Poor quality sleep
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle soreness
It is not possible to eat any particular foods to increase DHEA. DHEA supplementation is generally recommended for people 35 and up to maintain health.  

DHEA Dosage and Suggested use
DHEA is safe; It is available in the USA without a prescription. DHEA is not addictive or habit forming.

It is very important to use DHEA properly to yield the many benefits DHEA can provide. When taken orally as a pill, most DHEA is eliminated by the liver before it can have any beneficial effects. DHEA should be used as a properly made skin cream that is absorbed in the skin rather than ingesting it orally as a pill for absorption through the digestive tract. 

Don’t waste your time and money taking DHEA pills, or cheap ineffective imitations. Twist 25 DHEA cream is a pharmaceutical grade bioidentical DHEA cream made with ingredients from plant sources with a coconut oil cream base. 

Twist 25 DHEA cream is the best quality DHEA supplement available. One full pump press of Twist 25 DHEA cream contains 25 MG DHEA. Suggested use: Apply 1-2 pump presses morning and evening each day. Rub in completely between inner arm and abdomen. Twist 25 DHEA cream is best absorbed on thin hairless skin.

Noticeable results begin to be felt after 3-4 weeks of daily use.
Use Twist 25 cream. Make your own hormones to feel your best and look your best.

Top 12 Reasons to Use Twist 25 DHEA Cream

  1. DHEA short for (dehydroepiandrosterone) is the most abundant compound our bodies use to produce hormones. It is a basic building block or precursor to most of the hormones we produce. 
  2. Medical research shows most DHEA is actually metabolized in the skin.
  3. After we are born, we make increasing amounts of DHEA until about age 25. Then we begin to make less and less (about 2% less per year) until death. By age 30, the body makes noticeably less DHEA. We feel it happen as we consequently begin to produce less of the hormones for which DHEA is a precursor. This why by age 35, most people say they are beginning to feel less energetic, less healthy, and tired. The aches and pains and weight gain begin when folks are less active. By age 45 to 55, women and men produce just half the DHEA they did when they were 25. By age 80, DHEA levels can decline to only 5% of the levels of someone who is 25.
  4. Research shows that the level of DHEA in a person’s blood is an excellent predictor of not only age-related health problems, cognitive decline and cardiovascular health, but also aging itself—as defined by energy levels and quality of life. Higher levels of DHEA are strongly associated with good health, while lower levels are strongly associated with numerous diseases.
  5. Low levels of DHEA are associated with increased risk of death from all causes. For example, low DHEA levels are associated with an increased risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
  6. Low levels of DHEA are associated with adult diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, asthma, obesity, depression, dementia, osteoporosis, and lupus to name but a few. 
  7. Leading endocrinologists indicate that optimal anti-aging will be achieved by maintaining DHEA levels at the level of a 30 year old.
  8. There is no medical research that associates DHEA supplementation with any serious or dangerous side effects.
  9. People over age 35 using Twist 25 DHEA cream report they have more energy, handle stress more easily, think more clearly, and generally feel better. Other benefits include stronger resistance to colds and flu, feeling leaner and fitter, having softer skin, more sex drive, and sleeping better at night.
  10. DHEA has no dangerous side effects. DHEA reduces all types of cancer risk. DHEA increases the number of and activity of natural killer cells, thereby strengthening the immune system.
  11. Twist 25 DHEA cream is applied each day on thin, hairless skin. One or two pump presses of cream are applied morning and evening each day. One full pump press of Twist 25 cream contains 25 Mg DHEA. Twist 25 cream is a coconut oil base cream. 
  12. DHEA also is a base for sebum, and helps the body to form connective tissue. DHEA reduces risk of skin cancer by protecting cells from UV and chemical carcinogens.

DHEA Cream for Healthy Hair and Skin

Strong, fast-growing, healthy hair and soft skin is a telltale sign of overall health. Maybe that’s why maintaining young looking healthy hair and skin is a health and beauty must-have.

Turns out that science shows an important hormone precursor called DHEA can help us keep a full head of hair and soft hydrated skin. DHEA helps maintain healthy hair because it is a base precursor to estrogenic and androgenic sex hormones, and helps connective tissue formation. DHEA is also a base for sebum, or skin oil.

Dr. Wm. Marcus Spurlock, M.D. says, “DHEA is primarily used to enhance memory, however it has other uses. It helps boost the immune system and is the precursor hormone for testosterone and estrogen. Therefore, through its precursor status, indirectly, it aids in hair growth through the sex hormones.”

According to Dr. Timothy J. Smith in his book titled Renewal: The Anti-Aging Revolution, “DHEA does stimulate hair follicles and sebaceous (oil) glands.” In a clinical study in 2000, researchers determined that DHEA helps the body produce collagen which is important for strong health hair and skin.

Unfortunately, after age 25 sex hormones decline. By age 35, both men and women begin to notice the effects of declining hormones in lots of different ways. Quality of sleep at night, energy, sex drive, a more vulnerable immune system – may all be signs of a gradual hormone decline.

There is good news: a pharmaceutical grade DHEA skin cream made with bioidentical DHEA in a coconut oil base skin cream called Twist 25®Maintain a beautiful head of hair and soft, beautiful skin by maintaining your hormones with Twist 25 DHEA cream. Feel your best. Look your best.

Maintain Health and Sex Life with DHEA


From birth to about age 25, humans, men and women alike, produce more and more DHEA. DHEA is short for dehydroepiandrosterone a prohormone that is produced in the adrenal glands, gonads and dermis. It is a carbon chain molecule; a precursor or prohormone to male androgens as well as female sex hormones like the estrogens. It is a crucial foundation to good health. Hormones are the chemical messengers that drive us.

Shown below is a graph of DHEA levels over the human lifespan. Also shown is a graph of slightly improved DHEA levels possible if one were to supplement DHEA during the human lifespan to gain the benefits of maintaining a solid foundation for hormone metabolism.

DHEA applied as a skin cream provides something the body makes naturally in the dermis (DHEA) where it occurs and is metabolized naturally. The bioavailability for beneficial effects are much greater when DHEA is used as a properly made skin cream, instead of a pill. DHEA pills are largely eliminated by the first pass effect of the liver. Twist 25 is bioidentical DHEA in a carefully made coconut oil base cream.

Maintaining healthy production of hormones after age 30 allows the body to continue healthy function, while fighting off cardiovascular disease, cancer, dementia and osteoporosis. Healthy hormones also contribute to maintaining energy, sex drive, muscle tone, soft skin and connective tissue. Furthermore, DHEA counterbalances cortisol, the inflamatory response hormone.

In addition, DHEA is known to reduce abdominal fat.1 Medical research demonstrates that higher DHEA levels are positively associated with more efficient metabolism of energy consumed, instead of storing it as subcutaneous or visceral fat. Improved DHEA levels allow for better energy consumption and less fat.


So, stay healthy, support your immune system, fight off ailments of aging…and improve sex life too? Count me in!

Use Twist 25 DHEA cream. Make your own hormones.
