Healthier Skin with DHEA Cream



More and more people are discovering reasons to use DHEA cream. But of the many good things DHEA does, in the absence of any dangerous or harmful effects, there's one that's especially alluring…or attractive shall we say! DHEA has been shown to improve the health and appearance of the skin. Indeed, this is based upon results of numerous medical research studies. So there is a logical reason why using Twist 25 DHEA cream (that also contains coconut oil, vitamin E and co-enzyme Q-10) keeps the skin looking youthful, soft, well hydrated and vibrant while it also reduces risks of both chemical and UV carcinogens and fades age spots.

So, how does DHEA cream improve the skin? There are many ways. First, DHEA is a base for “sebum”. Sebum is otherwise known as skin oil. Sebum helps to keep the skin supple. It also has antimicrobial properties that keep irritations at bay. The end result is skin that's a lot brighter, more hydrated and healthier looking.

In a clinical study conducted in 2000, researchers noted that DHEA appears to help the body produce collagen. Collagen is a protein important in connective tissue that gradually deteriorates as we age. As the skin is depleted of collagen, it loses its elasticity and starts to sag and wrinkle. To make matters worse, collagenase enzymes speed up the process of collagen decline begins. DHEA appears to not only help the body produce collagen, but also helps to inhibit the production of collagenase. With regular daily use, Twist 25 DHEA cream helps the body maintain strong healthy connective tissues by supporting healthy collagen in the dermis yielding healthier, more youthful looking skin.

Additional research, in a 2008 Canadian study, reinforced the findings of the 2000 study. In the 2008 study, researchers noted that DHEA cream appears to help the body "switch on" special genes that are responsible for collagen production. At the same time, the presence of DHEA cream seems to reduce the expression, or effectiveness of genes that are associated with the production of keratinocytes. This is noteworthy because keratinocytes make the skin rougher and even cause it to form calluses. Therefore, it appears that regularly using DHEA cream can help the body keep the skin smoother and softer.

These facts are why we recommend using Twist 25 DHEA cream on your face, neck and hands. Additionally, DHEA cream also reduces the risk of both chemical and UV carcinogens; and DHEA also fades keratoses or “age spots” or “liver spots.”

When you take all of these things into consideration, it's easy to understand why DHEA cream can help people have healthier, younger-looking skin. Unlike so many skincare products, the benefits of DHEA cream are backed up by medical research and science.

New DHEA Research: Reducing Risk of Heart Disease

Achieve better results from your workout with DHEA
At Health2Go, we’re very excited about the latest in DHEA research. In addition to the many already well known health and beauty benefits of DHEA, this new research about DHEA is remarkable. In a five-year, peer reviewed clinical research study following 2,644 men between the ages of 69-80, it was found that those with higher DHEA levels were at significantly lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease (heart attack) than those with lower DHEA levels.  Since heart disease kills around 600,000 people each year in the United States, and is the #1 cause of death in the U.S.A. and the world, according to the CDC, this new medical research can help people live longer healthier and happier lives. Yet another reason to apply a high quality bioidentical DHEA cream called Twist 25 each day.

During two different clinical studies, researchers noticed a marked difference in the health of cells that line subject’s blood vessels, called epithelial cells.  Epithelial cells allow for the elasticity of blood vessels, determining how well veins and arteries dilate and contract as blood is pumped blood through the body. The way our blood vessels contract and dilate is measured as blood pressure and is a strong predictor of future heart disease and cardiovascular problems. For subjects who were given DHEA daily, arterial dilation more than doubled during the course of the study — a great outcome!

Additionally, the studies showed that DHEA inhibited the formation of blood clots by preventing the body from releasing a protein called PAI-1, or plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1, which interferes with the body’s ability to dissolve the tiny blood clots that spontaneously form in our bloodstream. By reducing release of PAI-1 , DHEA can help our bodies dissolve these tiny blood clots before they become bigger, more serious — and potentially fatal — clots.

According to the CDC, almost half of all Americans have one of the three risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol and smoking. We’re excited at the prospect that DHEA could help those at risk for heart disease live longer.

It’s important to note that DHEA in its bioidentical form — rather than DHEA-S, a more common form — produced the biggest health gains for participants in this study. When looking for a DHEA supplement, ensure you find a pharmaceutical grade bioidentical cream that has been tested for safety and efficacy, like Twist 25. There are many reasons to trust Twist 25 DHEA cream: it’s been tested and perfected for more than two decades, and is made with only top quality ingredients  —  but Health2Go is especially proud that we have dedicated customers in every state in the U.S.A. and doctors throughout the United States that provide Twist 25 cream as the best DHEA cream available for their patients.

What Makes Twist 25 the Best DHEA Cream?


Aging often brings a loss of vitality, mental sharpness, and drive. After about age 35, men and women alike begin to slow down as hormone production decreases. Most people start to experience the declines in hormones in a variety of common physical changes. They toss and turn at night and don’t sleep well, the lack energy and focus during the day, and start to gain weight around the midsection more and more easily. Most people try to stay active and exercise as they start to notice these subtle changes happening to delay some of time's effects. Exercise is important, but it can still be frustrating when your body just doesn't function the way it used to anymore. 

Along with staying active, eating right, and staying well hydrated, supplementation of a naturally occurring pro- hormone called DHEA, can also help you maintain a healthy, youthful state. One of the best ways to maintain your body's own DHEA is with Twist 25 DHEA cream.

The adrenal glands, gonads and dermis normally produce DHEA, but the levels peak in our mid-twenties and then gradually decline over time at a rate of about 2% per year. That means that by age 35 most people are 20% below the levels they were making at age 25 when they were at their best or “in the prime of life,” and by age 50 they are only making half as much as when they were at their healthiest. Certain plants, including soy and yams, produce a chemical compound similar to DHEA, but the body cannot convert the plant chemicals into usable DHEA. So eating soy beans or yams does not help increase hormone levels as many have tried and discovered for themselves. But a properly made bioidentical DHEA can now be bought and used daily as a skin cream called Twist 25 DHEA. "Bioidentical" means that it is identical to what is naturally produced by the human body. Only bioidentical hormones that are exactly the same as the naturally occurring human hormone molecule should be used as a supplement.

Feel younger with Twist 25 DHEA cream!
A DHEA supplement taken in pill form must go through the liver before reaching the rest of your system. As the liver processes it, in what is called the “first pass effect of the liver” most of the effective DHEA is destroyed. What does increase in the bloodstream from taking oral DHEA supplements is DHEA-S (DHEA sulfate), a much less effective sulfate form of DHEA. 

Twist 25 DHEA cream is made with a special formulation of bioidentical DHEA that is easily absorbed in the skin where it occurs naturally anyway. Since DHEA is made and processed in the skin anyway, Twist 25 cream is what the body uses naturally provided where the body uses naturally the skin — the dermis — the largest organ of the human body.

Twist 25 DHEA cream has been formulated, tested and perfected for more than twenty years to yield the highest quality safe effective bioidentical DHEA cream made. Twist 25 DHEA cream help people 35 and up enjoy deeper, more restful sleep; better mental focus and concentration, more "get up and go," more drive, and an improved sense of well-being. It also helps people lose weight, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Studies show that DHEA can help support the immune system as well as bone strength; fight depression; improve postmenopausal symptoms like hot flashes; and allows for soft, healthy, more hydrated skin.

What makes Twist 25 DHEA cream better than other DHEA creams? Twist 25 contains more bioidentical DHEA than other creams, gels or foams.  Each full pump press contains 25 mg bioidentical DHEA. Twist 25 DHEA cream is also made to retain it effectiveness for more than 18 months. People can actually feel the benefits from using the cream within just a few weeks. Health2Go makes Twist 25 DHEA cream only in the U.S.A. in a certified GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) compounding facility using only the highest-quality plant source ingredients. The cream is then laboratory tested for proper strength and mix to provide you with the best DHEA cream possible. 

Twist 25 contains no dangerous or harmful ingredients. Twist 25 cream contains no soy (that some people are allergic to), no lecithin, no cyclodextrin and no parabens. Twist 25 cream does not contain any petroleum by-products. Twist 25 cream contains 50 mg/ml pharmaceutical-grade bioidentical DHEA (a 5% DHEA cream) in a specially developed cream base made with coconut oil, Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10. A third-party independent laboratory tests every batch of cream to ensure proper mix and strength, which most over-the-counter supplement products do not do.  The high quality ingredients and laboratory testing for proper mix and strength make Twist 25 DHEA cream the DHEA most recommended by physicians and pharmacists, and other health professionals.

Wish you felt like you were 25 again? Use Twist 25 DHEA cream. Make your own hormones. Apply 1-2 pump presses each morning and evening to feel younger and have more energy, and provide the many health and beauty benefits DHEA provides.
