When You Feel Good, You Look Good

                                                                                                                                                                                          


Want to look better? Start with the little things.

It’s all the little things we do each day like exercise, eating a healthy diet loaded with a variety of vegetables, drinking plenty of pure water, getting adequate sleep and sunshine that keep us healthy.  When you take care of yourself, it shows. 

But what if you just don’t feel like taking those little steps? Since your hormones play an important role in your overall sense of well-being, take a minute to learn about the role of DHEA in hormone production.

DHEA:
  • is a crucial prohormone or base from which the body produces hormones.
  • is the most abundant hormone precursor. 
  • helps connective tissue and bone formation.
  • supports neuronal cells and bone cells to form.
  • helps the body to rebuild.
  • counterbalances the negative inflammatory effects of cortisol, the stress hormone.
  • supports the immune system by increasing the number of and activity of natural killer cells.

 Humans are naturally at their best or "in their prime" age for having children between the ages of 18 to 35 years. They feel vital and have sex drive, and have the energy and mental sharpness to care for children. 

But from age 25, males and females start making 2% less DHEA each year. This allows for hormone levels to decline. By age 35, we produce 20% less DHEA than when we were “in our prime” or “at our best,” and by age 50 we are only producing half as much.  This gradual decline continues, as do levels of 50 downstream hormones that all use DHEA as a base or precursor like estrogens in women and androgens like testosterone in men.

Knowing this, it makes sense to maintain healthy hormonal levels and health from age 35 and older with a DHEA supplement. 

But one lesser known fact is that medical research findings reveal it is best to use DHEA as an absorbable cream instead of a pill. The effectiveness speaks for itself. That’s why after a few weeks of consistent use, people start asking Twist 25 cream users “What have you been doing? You look so good.” When you feel good you look good.

Twist 25 DHEA cream is applied each day as a specially made bioidentical skin cream in a coconut oil base, Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q-10. It’s one of the best things you can do daily to maintain your health, mood, quality of sleep, energy, muscle tone, cardiovascular health, skin and immune system. DHEA is the most abundant prohormone in the human body. Make your own hormones.

Maintaining good health is a much better strategy than letting things gradually deteriorate. It is much harder to regain health and hormonal balance once lost. Developer of Twist 25, Dr. John Woodward, M.D. and bioidentical hormone replacement specialist at Medical City Dallas, TX said, “Staving off hormonal declines is much better and more effective than trying to replace hormones and good health once lost.”

As hormones decline, signs of menopause or andropause begin to show up as bad mood, poor quality sleep, low energy, weight gain, low sex drive and lack of mental sharpness or focus.

Meanwhile, cardiovascular health, risks of cancer, metabolic syndrome and depression increase as hormone levels decrease. Many people deceive themselves and deny that anything is happening because the decline is very slow and gradual. There is no dramatic incident that forces us to do something additional with no urgent need to. 

Little by little good health is lost. Usually, we attribute this easily ignored and gradual process of decline to “aging.” 

The good news is you can do something to slow the decline. 

Use Twist 25 DHEA cream daily to stave off the decline. We should try to maintain DHEA and hormone levels to allow optimal health. Make your own hormones. Use Twist 25 cream. Feel your best and look your best with Twist 25 DHEA cream.

It’s all the little things we do each day that make a big difference.

7 Secrets of Happy People


Ever notice that happy people also tend to be healthy people? Do you know people who always seem cheerful and are fun to be around? People that make you smile?

Have you ever wondered: what’s the secret?

Science shows that happy people are healthier too.  So how do they do it? 

What common behavior rules do happy people follow? 

Here are 7 secrets to a happy life:
  1. Say “yes” to social ties and doing things with others. Celebrate even small occasions with family and friends because relationships between us fulfill and enrich life. Make it a goal to connect with at least one friend or even someone new every day, and talk about good stuff, not bad.
  2. Give Thanks! Make a list each day of three things you’re grateful for – big or small. Think of simple pleasures like sunshine when rain was in the forecast; a tasty free sample at the grocery store; your favorite song on the radio. Be grateful for joys big or small.  
  3. Look at the bright side. Find the silver lining even when things don’t go the way you hoped they would. Focus on the things that go right, because they are what make life fun.  Be happy. Ignore the things that go wrong. Yes, bad stuff happens. There is no time for angry thoughts when things don’t work. Move on.
  4. Lend a hand. Help someone else with something. People who help others tend to feel happier. Always be on the lookout for ways to help others.
  5. Find joy in movement. 
    Exercise gets the senses moving, gets blood flow going, and floods the body with endorphins — the feel-good hormones. It also clears the brain, and releases stress and anxiety. So, get moving some way every day. Use it or lose it.
  6. Talk nice to yourself. Are you beating yourself up because you expect too much?  Research shows that positive thinking changes brain function. Remember nobody is perfect; mistakes do sometimes happen.  It’s not a perfect world, and that’s O.K.
  7.  Create something or play. Play a board game. Play guitar. Play ball with your dog. Doodle or draw something. Do something fun or silly at least once every day. Play time is good for you.
These are just some fun tips that help keep us happier and healthier; along with Twist 25 DHEA cream. May you have a healthy, happy 2019!
