DHEA Supports Bone Strength And Cartilage Formation

Are you feeling the aches and pains of getting older? Do your knees or knuckles hurt? Let’s face it, we’re all getting older. But now we can do something about it. Stave off those arthritic aches and pains.  Not pain killers...Do something to maintain healthy joints!

Several recent medical research studies have shown that dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) helps to protect against arthritis. The medical research findings showed that DHEA could potentially help stave off the development of and progression of osteoarthritis (OA) because DHEA allows for enhanced cartilage formation.(1) That’s great news !

The medical research findings continue to support maintaining DHEA levels. Why? Well, The Life Extension Foundation's medical research team explains the scientific findings here: 

“The role and therapeutic potential of the hormone dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in male and female rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients is supported by a broad base of evidence."(2)
These findings are further supported by peer reviewed medical research performed at Washington University School of Medicine by doctors Villareal, Holloszy and Kohrt. The research study is titled “Effects of DHEA replacement on bone mineral density and body composition in elderly women and men” The research showed that DHEA supplementation in older men and women could help improve age related changes in fat mass and improve bone mineral density (BMD).(3)

It’s a good idea to ask your health provider about DHEA. If he or she is not familiar with the research, be sure to share these findings and information about Twist 25 DHEA cream being a more beneficial way to use DHEA than oral DHEA

Physicians believe that DHEA helps maintain strong bones as we get older in part because DHEA is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone, both of which are known to help reduce bone loss; but it appears that DHEA also has separate bone preserving effects that are unrelated to its metabolism into other hormones. The Mayo Clinic indicates that “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.”(4)

After considering these medical research findings that show DHEA helps support bone strength, cartilage and connective tissue formation, while it also reduces inflammation, it makes sense to conclude that DHEA is a great way to combat arthritis. 

Fight those aches and pains !We invite you to use Twist 25 DHEA Cream twice daily for three weeks and see for yourself. Naturally maintain youthful energy to look your best and feel your best!
