What makes Twist 25 better than other DHEA products?
The cream is the secret! Medical research shows that most DHEA metabolism occurs in the skin.* Twist 25 is a bioidentical DHEA cream that is absorbed into the skin. “Bioidentical” means that the DHEA in Twist 25 is the same molecular structure as is produced in humans.

DHEA as a cream is far more effective than oral DHEA because most DHEA metabolism occurs in the skin. When taken as a pill, DHEA is destroyed by the “first-pass effect” of the liver. The liver filters out most DHEA before it can do any good; what does get into the bloodstream is DHEA-S (DHEA sulfate).
