How to use DHEA

DHEA must be used as a properly made bioidentical DHEA cream called Twist 25.
Why? - Medical research shows the human body metabolizes most DHEA into other hormones in the skin (the dermis). The skin is the largest organ of the body. The skin is where we use most of the DHEA we make. So Twist 25 DHEA cream provides exactly what the body produces naturally (bioidentical DHEA) where we use it (in the skin).
There are 3 key reasons for this: #1  When taken orally as a pill, most DHEA is eliminated by the “First-pass effect” of the liver. Basically, this means that the liver filters most of the effective DHEA out before it can do any good; and what does end up getting into the bloodstream is DHEA-S (DHEA sulfate) not free DHEA. #2  DHEA-S is not the same as free DHEA. DHEA-S is not converted by the body into free DHEA.  DHEA can be converted into DHEA-S, but not the other way around.

In adult men, approximated 50% of androgens are made locally.” (Fernand Labrie, Alain Belanger, Rene Berube, et al. University of Toronto Medical School.

As a physician, I believe DHEA must be used as a bioidentical DHEA cream called “Twist 25”.  Twist 25 DHEA cream is the top quality bioidentical DHEA supplement cream.  Medical research studies clearly show why DHEA is best used as a highly absorbable skin cream. <div>Why? - Medical research shows the human body metabolizes most DHEA into other hormones in the skin (the dermis).
