DMAE (Dimethylamino Ethanol)

 Dimethylamino Ethanol (DMAE) is a natural amino alcoho and it is found in small amounts in the brain. Dmae is considered a precursor of choline that is needed for the brain to make acetylcholine.  

Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter in nerve signal conduction and healthy function. As a supplement, DMAE works with other “smart nutrients” such as gingko bilboa.

DMAE naturally occurs in foods such as fish, salmon, and sardines in particular. The human brain maintains a small amount of dmae, which plays various crucial functions. On the surface, this nutrient protects the integrity of cell membranes, however dmae does far more than just this. The deterioration of cell membranes can lead to aging earlier than one should.

DMAE is used as a dietary supplement and the dose is one v-cap one to three times daily. It is preferable to take them between meals. Do not take more than the stated dose without checking with your physician. DMAE comes in the form of creams, capsules, and liquid tablets.
