At Health2Go, we’re very excited about the latest in DHEA research. In addition to the many already well known health and beauty benefits of DHEA, this new research about DHEA is remarkable. In a five-year, peer reviewed clinical research study following 2,644 men between the ages of 69-80, it was found that those with higher DHEA levels were at significantly lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease (heart attack) than those with lower DHEA levels. Since heart disease kills around 600,000 people each year in the United States, and is the #1 cause of death in the U.S.A. and the world, according to the CDC, this new medical research can help people live longer healthier and happier lives. Yet another reason to apply a high quality bioidentical DHEA cream called Twist 25 each day.
During two different clinical studies, researchers noticed a marked difference in the health of cells that line subject’s blood vessels, called epithelial cells. Epithelial cells allow for the elasticity of blood vessels, determining how well veins and arteries dilate and contract as blood is pumped blood through the body. The way our blood vessels contract and dilate is measured as blood pressure and is a strong predictor of future heart disease and cardiovascular problems. For subjects who were given DHEA daily, arterial dilation more than doubled during the course of the study — a great outcome!
Additionally, the studies showed that DHEA inhibited the formation of blood clots by preventing the body from releasing a protein called PAI-1, or plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1, which interferes with the body’s ability to dissolve the tiny blood clots that spontaneously form in our bloodstream. By reducing release of PAI-1 , DHEA can help our bodies dissolve these tiny blood clots before they become bigger, more serious — and potentially fatal — clots.
According to the CDC, almost half of all Americans have one of the three risk factors for heart disease: high blood pressure, high LDL cholesterol and smoking. We’re excited at the prospect that DHEA could help those at risk for heart disease live longer.
It’s important to note that DHEA in its bioidentical form — rather than DHEA-S, a more common form — produced the biggest health gains for participants in this study. When looking for a DHEA supplement, ensure you find a pharmaceutical grade bioidentical cream that has been tested for safety and efficacy, like Twist 25. There are many reasons to trust Twist 25 DHEA cream: it’s been tested and perfected for more than two decades, and is made with only top quality ingredients — but Health2Go is especially proud that we have dedicated customers in every state in the U.S.A. and doctors throughout the United States that provide Twist 25 cream as the best DHEA cream available for their patients.
