Reduce The Side Effects of Menopause Naturally

DHEA cream Reduces effects Menopause Naturally

Going through menopause can be difficult for women. Menopause doesn’t officially begin until 12 months after a woman’s last period. On average, the process begins around age 50 but can start as early as 40 or as late as 60, and it typically lasts around seven or eight years but can last up to 14 years. This article provides  a detailed list of benefits of using DHEA cream for menopause symptom relief.

While menopause is a perfectly natural part of aging for women, it is often accompanied by unpleasant side effects. The unpleasant side effects of menopause are primarily driven by decreasing hormones.

Most women may experience hot flashes, poor quality sleep, diminished skin tone, changes in mood, increased anxiety, forgetfulness, a lack of concentration or focus, weight gain, reduced sex drive, vaginal dryness, and vaginal atrophy. These symptoms vary in intensity for each individual; however, most women experience at least some of these symptoms during menopause.

Unfortunately, these unpleasant side effects can make it difficult to sleep at night. For many women, menopause-induced insomnia can be caused by declining hormone levels. A decrease in estrogen production can cause some women to experience hot flashes, which can make sleeping difficult.


  • Depression
  • Thin Papery Skin
  • Loss Of Cognitive Function
  • Weight Gain
  • Impaired Ability To Make Decisions
  • Increased Risk Of Health Conditions, Including High Blood Pressure
  • Loss Of Sexual Function, Vaginal Dryness, Vaginal Atrophy

In addition to an inability to sleep, when some women reach menopause, their progesterone and estrogen levels decline, and they may experience rapid bone loss if nothing is done to address the decline in hormone levels. Estrogen helps slow the progression of bone resorption. Progesterone and DHEA help build bone.

Menopause may be unpleasant. Fortunately, DHEA has been shown to help reduce many of the side effects of menopause and has no dangerous side effects.


DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone, is a naturally occurring prohormone made and processed in the adrenal glands, gonads, and dermis. DHEA is the same molecule in males and females and is a base building block or hormone precursor for more than 50 hormones. These hormones include all the estrogenic hormones and androgens like testosterone.

The body produces more and more DHEA from birth until around age 25 when we reach our “physical prime,”; and then decreases at a rate of about 2% each year after age 25. By age 35, males and females have about 20% less DHEA in the body than when they were age 25; and by age 50, women produce about half as much DHEA as when they were healthiest.

DHEA plays a key role in hormone production and may thus naturally reduce the severity of menopause symptoms by maintaining the most important base precursor for healthy hormones.


In a 2006 study, 28 women were given 50 mg of DHEA for four weeks to test the effects the prohormone had on their menopause symptoms. The study suggested that participants who received DHEA treatment experienced notable improvement in their quality of life and experienced fewer, less intense hot flashes.

A 2003 report from the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology found that it’s common for women to experience sexual dysfunction, depression, food cravings, muscle weakness, poor sleep, and other unpleasant health issues as their natural DHEA production decreases.

Interesting research done by Dr. Fernand Labrie showed that after menopause, women make more than 80 percent of their hormones in the skin, the dermis, the largest organ of the body.

Another great benefit of DHEA for menopause is research also suggests that DHEA plays a role in maintaining bone density and strength as we age. DHEA is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone, which help reduce bone loss, and DHEA has been shown to have its own bone-preserving effects. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Evidence suggests that higher DHEA levels may be linked to higher bone density, particularly in women who have undergone menopause. Research reports that DHEA supplements may help increase bone density.”

Research from Washington University School of Medicine suggests that DHEA supplementation in older women may help improve age-related changes in fat mass and improve bone mineral density (Villarreal, 2000). DHEA has also been shown to balance stress hormones, which benefits bone growth. The body responds to stress by producing more cortisol, and when stress is not managed, cortisol may block bone growth. DHEA plays a significant role in counterbalancing the body’s cortisol levels.


DHEA is naturally metabolized in the skin, so using a DHEA cream is more effective than taking an oral DHEA supplement. The first-pass effect of the liver essentially eliminates oral DHEA supplements, and the DHEA that does get absorbed into the bloodstream through the gut is DHEA sulfate, not free DHEA. DHEA-S is not bad for your health; it is just far less effective than free DHEA.


Twist 25 DHEA cream should be rubbed into thin hairless skin twice a day. Twist 25 cream is made in a pharmaceutical-grade coconut oil base cream, bioidentical DHEA, vitamin E, and coenzyme Q-10.

Twist 25 DHEA cream is a great logical first step for postmenopausal women to regain and maintain health, cognitive function, mood, quality sleep, energy, focus, muscle tone, and cardiovascular health, improve skin softness, and support the immune system toreduce risks of cancer. DHEA is the most abundant naturally occurring prohormone in the human body, so dangerous side effects.

Perimenopausal and postmenopausal women can maintain health and well-being long-term by maintaining their hormones. Maintaining hormones naturally with daily application of Twist 25 DHEA cream can help women fight the unpleasant symptoms of menopause, like poor sleep. Use Twist 25 DHEA cream to make your own hormones.

  1. Hi Victoria,
    One bottle of Twist 25 DHEA cream contains 50 ml of cream. Each pump press releases 0.7 ml of cream if you press the actuator head down completely. So there are about 70 squirts of cream in a bottle. So if you use one squirt every morning and evening, a bottle of Twist 25 cream should last you a bout a month. Each full squirt from the pump contains 25 mg of DHEA. Please see the suggested use on the bottle label and product brochure sent with each order of Twist 25 cream. Always here to help,
