What is DHEA ? How to use DHEA – a daily skin cream called Twist 25

DHEA, short for dehydroepiandrosterone, is the most abundant naturally occurring pro-hormone in the body. It is a hormone precursor only occurring in humans and upper level primates.

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”, DHEA is a base for more than 50 hormones that are smaller or more specific carbon chain molecules in human biochemistry. As a precursor for all estrogenic and androgenic hormones, humans make DHEA naturally from birth. Men and women produce more and more DHEA every year until 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. DHEA also supports the immune system
allowing for a greater number of and 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 after exercise, and 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 people 35 and up to maintain health.

Available without a prescription, DHEA is safe; and not addictive or habit forming. DHEA is available in the U.S.A. without a prescription.

It is very important to use DHEA properly to get the many benefits DHEA can provide. DHEA should be used as a properly made skin cream, rather than being taken as a pill. When taken orally as a pill, most DHEA is eliminated by the liver before it can have any beneficial effects.

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. Twist 25 DHEA cream is the best quality DHEA supplement available.

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.

DHEA Exercise Results

DHEA supplementation enhances exercise performance. Professional and Olympic athletes are prohibited from using DHEA supplements because use would provide many advantages in health and fitness.

The reasons DHEA provides a workout advantage?

  1.  DHEA promotes cell formation for connective tissues such as muscle, cartilage and connective tissue, bone osteocytes as well as skin cells in the dermis, and neurons as well.
  2. DHEA allows for healthier epithelial cells throughout the cardiovascular system and peripheral tissues.
  3. DHEA is a base or precursor to 50 hormones as well as sebum that is a natural moisturizer for skin and hair.
  4. DHEA counterbalances the inflammatory effects of cortisol.  So, after workouts muscle recovery is improved while soreness is reduced
  5. DHEA allows formation of shapelier, toned muscle.
  6. DHEA has been shown to reduce both subcutaneous and visceral abdominal fat because DHEA improves the ability to burn energy rather than storing it away as fat.

DHEA is a crucial hormone precursor for male and female sex hormones that humans produce naturally from birth. Men and women make greater amounts of DHEA every year until about age 25 when levels are at their peak. This is also when humans are in reproductive prime, at their peak of physical health. After age 25, DHEA levels begin to decline at a rate of about 2% per year.

DHEA should be supplemented via proper method of use to yield noticeable benefits. Using DHEA correctly as a specially made skin cream yields more favorable benefits compared to DHEA in pill form which is far less effective. After regular daily use for 3 weeks one can actually feel noticeable benefits, whereas DHEA pills are far less effective.


People 35 years and older (who are not competing as a professional or Olympic athlete) should apply Twist 25 DHEA cream daily.

Twist 25 DHEA cream is available without a prescription. It is not addictive or habit forming. Twist 25 cream has no dangerous side effects. It is made with a special cream base containing coconut oil, vitamin E and coenzyme Q10. It contains no petroleum byproducts, no soy, no lecithin, no parabens, no cyclodextrins.

There are no particular foods to eat that will increase DHEA levels. For greatest benefit, people 35 or older apply Twist 25 DHEA cream on thin hairless skin each day.
