DHEA looks good on you

What are the side effects of taking DHEA?

There are no dangerous side effects from using a DHEA, DeHydroEpiAndrosterone, supplement. DHEA is the most abundant naturally occurring pro-hormone in humans.  DHEA is not a foreign substance.  DHEA only occurs in humans. DHEA is not addictive or habit forming and can be discontinued at any time with no adverse side effects. DHEA should be used as a properly made bioidentical skin cream.

DHEA is very safe. Men and women over age 35 should use a properly made DHEA skin cream like Twist 25 DHEA cream daily to maintain youthful vigor because maintaining healthy hormone levels can stave off many diseases of aging. DHEA does not increase the risks of cancer. In fact, research shows that people with higher DHEA levels are at a reduced risk of developing cancer and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

In fact, many urologists are now using DHEA to help patients fight prostate cancer.  Because DHEA is a naturally occurring hormone precursor and a base for many hormones as well as a base for sebum, commonly know as skin oil, in rare cases DHEA supplementation may cause some people to get skin blemishes or increased hair growth or sex drive.  If any such unwanted side effect occurs, simply reduce the amount of DHEA supplement being used or discontinue use. Such side effects are very rare.

What is DHEA and why use a DHEA cream?

DHEA stands for dehydroepiandrosterone. DHEA is the most abundant hormone precursor or pro-hormone. DHEA is produced only in humans. Humans produce DHEA in the adrenal glands, ovaries or testicles, and metabolize it in the skin or dermis, the largest organ of the body.

DHEA levels over human lifespan
Humans produce DHEA from birth through childhood and puberty producing ever increasing amounts of DHEA through reproductive prime, when we are at our best. DHEA production by the body continues to about age 25. Then after age 26, men and women alike begin to make less and less each year.

DHEA is converted into many hormones. DHEA is a crucial part in the cascade of carbon chain molecules in human metabolism. From acetate comes cholesterol. Cholesterol may be metabolized to yield pregnenolone. From pregnenolone the body makes some of that into hydroxypregnenolone. Then some of that is converted to either DHEA or progesterone. Then below DHEA in the cascade of human hormone metabolism the body metabolizes some of the DHEA into the estrogenic hormones like estrogen, estradiol, estrone, estriol; and some into androgenic hormones like testosterone, etc. About 50 smaller carbon chain molecules use DHEA as a precursor or base. DHEA is the foundation for some 5o other smaller more specific carbon chain molecules.

Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body. Hormones drive everything in our lives, including cognitive function, visual function, spatial awareness, sleep, sex drive, energy, immune function, cardiovascular function, mood, muscle tone, fat buildup, and more. So, since bodily functions and health are driven by hormones one would want to maintain optimal hormones for as long as we can as we get older. If we could maintain hormone levels of a 25 year old we would naturally stave off many of the conditions of aging. Maintain healthy hormone balance to have better mental function, stronger bones and teeth, softer skin, better immune response, better cardiovascular health and more.

How to use DHEA – Twist 25 DHEA Cream

The DHEA Cream Innovation

Doctor John Woodward

Inventor of Twist 25 DHEA cream.

Twist 25 is a skin cream that provides topical DHEA and is the result of 30 years of development by John R. Woodward, M.D., and his son, Hugh R. Woodward, President of Health2Go, Inc.

Trained at Yale University School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Medical Center, Dr. Woodward had a specialized interest in providing leading-edge hormone replacement and maintenance for women and men. Hugh Woodward, has a Master of Science (MHA) in Health Care Services Administration, and has worked in the health care industry for 26 years.

In 2006, Dr. Woodward told Hugh about one of his new advances: a DHEA cream he had developed to maintain vitality that was gaining great popularity among his patients. Hugh decided to try it himself, as it could positively impact the health of both men and women. After using the cream daily for 2 weeks Hugh began to feel leaner, fitter, had more energy, more mental sharpness, better focus and was sleeping well at night again. This allowed him to awaken more rested and have more energy and productivity during the day. He felt more motivated to go to the gym and work out. The results and benefits of exercising became more noticeable. People started asking if he had lost weight.

Hugh spoke with his father and said, “I love it- I feel great! What is this cream?”Hugh Woodward

Dr Woodward explained that it was a specially formulated, pharmaceutical grade, bioidentical DHEA cream developed and compounded for him working with specialized pharmacists. Since DHEA does not require a prescription, Hugh asked why nobody yet produced and provided a high quality DHEA cream available for people in stores. Dr. Woodward replied, “Good question!”

Twist 25 DHEA Cream

The best formulations for DHEA cream were researched, compounded and tested yielding the present Twist 25 DHEA cream – a coconut oil based cream with vitamin E and co-enzyme Q-10. The cream contains 50 mg/ml DHEA.

DHEA, Hormone Building Block

DHEA, dehydroepiadrosterone, is produced naturally in the body from birth. Men and women alike make more and more DHEA from birth to about age 25. After age 25, both men and women begin to make less and less DHEA with time. Each year people make 2% less than the prior year.

Twist 25 DHEA cream 50 ML containerDHEA is the precursor, or base building block, from which the body makes about 50 different hormones. DHEA is the most abundant pro-hormone in the body and is metabolized by the body in the adrenal glands, gonads and the dermis (skin). The dermis is the largest organ of the body and is where metabolism of DHEA occurs normally.

Studies show that by maintaining healthy hormone levels women and men can maintain better health and reduce the risks of heart disease, cancer, dementia, depression, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, obesity and more. Dr. Woodward, M.D. said the ideal goal would be to maintain hormone levels of a healthy 30 year old.  Maintain good health rather than try to recover health once it is lost. Just a small application of Twist 25 DHEA cream, morning and evening each day, can make a big difference in maintaining health for men and women ages 35 and up.

Health2Go, Inc. was formed in March 2007 to bring top quality leading edge health products to people conveniently and cost effectively. Twist 25 DHEA cream is the leading flagship Health2Go product. Other top quality Health2Go products are also available.

The Health2Go team is proud to provide the best DHEA cream possible and help people get it conveniently.

John R. Woodward, Twist 25 productionM.D. invented Twist 25 DHEA cream. Dr. Woodward began his medical practice at Medical City Dallas when it opened in 1974. He remained there treating patients for 43 years until his death February 2, 2017. Dr Woodward’s leading edge mindset, medical training and desire to always stay well informed of the latest research allowed him to bring many new advances in surgical procedures to the Dallas medical community: specifically, laparoscopy, hysteroscopy, and endometrial ablation. He also contributed scientific insights for Health2Go products. Dr Woodward said “Use Twist 25 DHEA cream, and make your own hormones.”


Maintain Mental and Physical Ability with DHEA and Vitamin D

Research shows that as we age “declining health is the number one concern (37%) about getting older, followed by financial worries (23%) and dependence on others (6%). Asked their greatest fear about growing old, Americans mentioned losing mental capacity twice as often as declining physical ability (62% vs. 29% respectively). 84% of Americans surveyed said they believe they can do things to stay healthy as they age, and 83% say they are currently taking steps to do so. Of those, more than half (56%) of Americans surveyed say they are exercising and 26% are watching their diet.”1

A recent article posted on Endocrineweb.com was titled “Vitamin D and DHEA Help Men Avoid Frailty: Study.” The article was about a recent medical study that showed that older men (age 70 -88) who had higher levels of Vitamin D had better bone health, muscle mass and strength.2 In another study, Australian researchers evaluated more than 4,000 older men ages 70 to 88, and they likewise found that vitamin D levels predicted independently who would become frail.3

So, there is very convincing medical research that shows that maintaining vitamin D levels as we get older is very important. In addition, reliable peer reviewed medical research shows that low levels of DHEA in older men were also found to increase the risk of becoming frail.4 Men and women with higher levels of DHEA have been found to have stronger bones; and better cognition as measured by memory, verbal fluency and visuospatial awareness.5

DHEA is a naturally occurring pro-hormone that our bodies produce more and more of each year from birth through puberty and into adulthood. But then DHEA production levels out between the ages of about 20 to 25 and begins to decline. After age 25, DHEA levels decrease by about 2 percent each year. So by age 35, we produce 20% less than when we were in our prime; by age 50, we only produce about half as much DHEA as we did at age 25. The decrease continues to where, by age 75, we are only producing 5 or 10% of optimum levels. To stave off this decline, it would be better to supplement DHEA levels as we get older, as shown in the graph below. Simply apply a little Twist 25 DHEA cream morning and evening each day to help maintain your DHEA level.

It is very important to be sure you’re using a quality DHEA supplement. When you shop for a DHEA supplement, there are low-cost products available, but ‘buyer beware!’ There is a price to pay for inferior quality. Twist 25 DHEA cream is made with pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and provides bioidentical DHEA the right way, absorbed in the skin.  Twist 25 DHEA cream is made with coconut oil, vitamin E and coenzyme Q-10.  Developed by a Board Certified medical doctor and specialized cream chemists, Twist 25 cream is available without a prescription. This cream has been researched, tested and perfected for more than 20 years. Physicians and pharmacists recommend Twist 25 DHEA cream and provide it for their patients.

Apply Twist 25 DHEA cream every day and take Health2Go Vitamin D3 or Health2Go Vitamin A-D-K capsules every day, beginning as soon as you can to stay as healthy, strong and sharp as possible.

Avoid frailty as you get older. Enjoy life. Health2Go is here to help.
