What is it? Overview Usage Side Effects and Warnings

What is DMAE (2-Dimethylaminoethanol)?

DMAE is more widely marketed today as a memory and mood enhancer, but some believe that it can improve intellectual functioning. The basis for such claims probably stems from its purported ability to increase levels of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Drugs and supplements called cholinergics that increase acetylcholine have been used to treat Alzheimer's disease, tardive dyskinesia, and Huntington's chorea. Because DMAE was believed to be a cholinergic, it has been tried for all of these disorders.
