Dimethylethanolamine (DMAE) is an organic chemical compound, which in certain amounts is also present in the brain.
DMAE stimulates the secretion of acetylcholine - one of the most important neurotransmitters of the central nervous system. It is believed that it is a more effective acetylcholine precursor than choline. This is related to the fact that DMAE provided from outside effectively crosses blood-brain barrier.
As a precursor of acetylcholine and the compound counteracting the aggregation of the so-called “age pigment” (related to the drop of cognitive functions), this compound increases the ability to concentrate, improves psychomotor efficiency and positively influences well-being.
It is an ingredient of dietary supplement with nootropic effect. By applying DMAE, we may obtain the benefits in the form of better focus and alertness, mood improvement and effective memorization. As a dietary supplement, it is recommended to intellectually active people, those who lead an active lifestyle or are prone to frequent or strong stress.
