DMAE

The less-known compound in fish, dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), is increasingly used by medical practitioners to boost brain power. 


In a small, controlled study, it was demonstrated that DMAE, which its cells transform into components of cell membranes, helped reduce hyperactivity. However, it's important to consult with the child's physician before using DMAE, as high doses can lead to adverse effects.

DMAE benefits

  • DMAE offers skin benefits. Studies have shown that DMAE may help tighten and firm skin, reducing the appearance of sagging and wrinkles. It's believed to enhance water retention in tissues, improving skin tautness and appearance.
  • Clinical studies suggest that DMAE can enhance the production of acetylcholine; a key neurotransmitter that facilitates brain cell communication and plays a pivotal role in learning and memory.
  • Historically for medicine, DMAE is now more commonly used as a nutritional supplement due to its safety and efficacy in boosting mental focus.
  • DMAE's antioxidant properties may help protect heart cells during stress and improve overall cardiovascular function.

While DMAE is generally safe and well-tolerated, it should be used cautiously. Recommended oral doses range from 50 to 1600 mg per day, depending on the individual's health goals and responses. Topical forms, such as creams and gels, should be applied as directed for skin health benefits.
