Brain Health with DHEA the right way

Enhancing Cognitive Function with DHEA

There is an old Rudyard Kipling poem that begins: “If you can keep your head about you when those around you are losing theirs and blaming it on you…” Life happens in ways we don’t always expect.  It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do – there are going to be times when you need to “keep your head about you” – focus and think clearly. We all want to feel well and stay mentally sharp as we get older.

Ask anyone.

There are two main fears people have about aging:

  1. loss of health or physical fitness
  2. loss of mental function, memory, or dementia

It is imperative to maintain good health physically, because staying active and fit to function physically is half the battle to also staying mentally sharp. So lets do what is possible right now to keep both physical health and mental health going strong for as long as possible.

Stay Healthy. Stay Sharp.

Twist 25 DHEA Cream Can Help.

There are more than 5 million people living now in the U.S. with age related dementia. It is estimated that one out of every six women and one out of every 10 men living past age 55 will develop dementia. Don’t want that to be you? Me neither.

Mental sharpness and physical health are needed to prevent loss of independence and allow us the ability to manage life and continue to do things for ourselves as we get older. We all want to feel well physically and think clearly as we get older. Right? Staying mentally young and “with it” is key.

So what can we do now to keep a sharp mind? Science shows the prohormone DHEA can help maintain cognitive function.

  1. Eat a healthy diet known and proven to be good for your brain
  2. Exercise and stay active
  3. Drink plenty of water every day
  4. Sleep 7-8 hours every night
  5. Maintain DHEA levels by using Twist 25 DHEA cream every day after age 35

What is DHEA?

DHEA, short for dehydroepiandrosterone, is the most abundant hormone precursor in the human body. DHEA levels increase from birth through youth and peak between age 20-25, when we are in adult prime of life. Then DHEA levels gradually decrease by about 2% per year thereafter. DHEA production declines about 2% per year after age 25. DHEA is an important hormone precursor. It is a base for estrogens and androgens, like testoterone. DHEA is metabolized in the adrenal glands, gonads and skin. DHEA is the most abundant hormone in the bloodstream and plays a key role in maintaining our mental and physical health.  DHEA has no dangerous side effects. If DHEA levels are too high, we simply pee it out.

As our bodies DHEA production decreases after age 25, many people start to notice declines in mood, feeling easily overwhelmed or lacking the vitality they once had.

Medical Research Shows Benefits of DHEA for Brain Health

Medical research studies suggest that DHEA can help reduce the effects of cognitive decline and memory loss associated with aging.

Reliable peer reviewed medical research has shown that low levels of DHEA in older men  increased the risk of becoming frail.  Men and women with higher levels of DHEA were found to have stronger bones; and better cognition as measured by memory, verbal fluency and visuospatial awareness.[1]

Another medical research study found that DHEA actually helps neuronal cells to regenerate, and boost cognitive function as measured by memory, mood and visuospatial awareness and balance.[2]

Medical research findings by Kirk Stokel in Life Extension Magazine, “New Research Substantiates the Anti-Aging Properties of DHEA”, explains how DHEA can help maintain brain health and mood as we get older.

One of the most important functions of DHEA is that it counterbalances cortisol, the body’s main stress hormone. Approximately 60% of your brain is made up of fat, most of it polyunsaturated fat that is highly prone to damage from free radicals, including those formed by high cortisol levels in the body. This damage often leads to inflammation, which is now widely regarded as an underlying cause of many degenerative diseases. DHEA exhibits anti-inflammatory effects that protect against brain cell damage. Some studies suggest that DHEA may be able to help reverse some of the negative side effects of Alzheimer’s disease.

Many of the same factors that affect heart health also affect the health of our brains. This includes atherosclerosis, a buildup of plaques in blood vessels that causes reduced circulation. The brain needs plenty of oxygen and glucose to function properly; so anything that reduces blood flow to the brain can result in damage or impairment. DHEA helps protect against plaque buildup, likely because of the same anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that keep your brain healthy.

How to Use DHEA the Right way

So if you are 35 or older, male or female, it is beneficial maintain DHEA levels daily to support physical  health and brain health.

DHEA is a safe supplement. DHEA has no dangerous side effects, and is not addictive or habit forming. DHEA is available in the U.S.A. without a prescription.

However, it is very important to use DHEA properly to get the many benefits DHEA can provide.

When you look for a DHEA supplement, you might notice that there are two different kinds of DHEA supplements available. There are oral DHEA supplement pills or absorbable DHEA creams. DHEA cream is a more effective form of delivery than pills because the DHEA in oral DHEA supplement pills is mostly eliminated by the liver, and what is not destroyed by the liver ends up only increasing DHEA sulfate in the bloodstream. DHEA sulfate cannot be converted in the body into free DHEA, which is what the body uses as a precursor for the sex hormones. DHEA cream allows your body to absorb and metabolize the DHEA where it occurs naturally anyway—in the skin. Don’t waste your time and money taking DHEA pills, or cheap ineffective imitations.

Twist 25 DHEA cream is a specially made absorbable DHEA cream absorbed in the skin. Twist 25 DHEA cream is the highest quality DHEA supplement cream available.

Twist 25 cream is a 5% DHEA cream that contains 50 MG per ML to be rubbed into thin hairless skin morning and evening each day.

One full pump press from the Twist 25 DHEA cream bottle is 0.5 ML, and thus contains 25 MG of DHEA.


 As always, it is good to get regular daily exercise, eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables, drink plenty of good clean water, and get 7-8 hours of sleep at night. Practicing stress management techniques such as meditation or yoga can also help us manage stress to keep cortisol levels under control. Regular exercise to improve circulation is also an important way to help protect your brain and body from the effects of aging. Apply  Twist 25 DHEA cream morning and evening every day to feel your best and support your physical health and brain health.
