DMAE Memory Improvement - a cognitive tonic and Anti-Aging supplement. Its complete chemical name is dimethylamine ethanol. Sometimes it is called, dimethylethanolamine, This is a liquid - usually found as a clear or lightly yellow tinted liquid. It is chemically related to choline and what is of real interest to us, is that it is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
If you combine DMAE with phosphatidl choline, found in Lecithin and Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) you will find that acetylcholine is produced. And acetylcholine is an important nerotransmitter in human memory and thought. So this supplement has a potential for help to human memory, especially short term memory, as well as human thinking.
Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa advises that DMAE does improve memory happens and that the supplement sometimes produces "effects almost as striking as those elicited by potent pharmaceutical drugs such as tacrine." [Brain Longevity p. 262].
