Natural Support for Improved Brain and Memory Function
DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol), found in highest concentrations in anchovies and sardines, is also produced in small amounts in the human brain. DMAE is a precursor to the neurotransmitters choline and acetylcholine, although DMAE crosses the blood-brain barrier faster than choline. Once inside brain cells, DMAE is converted to phosphatidylcholine, a substance used for maintenance and repair of cells, especially brain cells. Studies have shown DMAE to be useful in:
- ADD/ADHD (first studied in the 1970’s by drug companies and found useful for this purpose)
- Improved memory and short-term concentration
- Alzheimer’s dementia
Cautions: Begin with the low dose and work up to higher doses. Sudden stimulation of brain chemicals may cause headache. Use in epilepsy only under physician guidance.
Dose: 100-300mg per day, taken with meals.
