Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) Plus is a naturally occurring amino alcohol extracted from anchovies and sardines. DMAE easily crosses the blood-brain barrier and raises phosphatidylcholine and acetylcholine levels in the brain. Its effect on the brain is similar to an amphetamine, but on a much smaller scale. It also serves as an antioxidant and free-radical scavenger.
Potential side effects:
DMAE is not a fast acting food supplement. It takes approximately 3-4 weeks before it starts producing noticeable effects.
