DMAE is naturally produced in the body. It is a derivative of the B vitamin choline. It has been around for years as an oral supplement DMAE is thought to work by increasing production of acetylcholine (Ach), a neurotransmitter that’s crucial for helping nerve cells send signals.
DMAE relaxes fine lines and wrinkles and assists in firming sagging and aging skin, resulting in an overall more tightened, toned and youthful appearance. It increases the skins firmness with improvement in underlying facial muscle tone.
When applied directly to the skin, DMAE helps to reduce its droopy appearance. Your skin’s elasticity will also appear toned so you will fight signs of aging longer. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects that reduce symptoms of sun damage and improve skin firmness and muscle tone, too.
DMAE also helps prevent the buildup of a substance called beta-amyloid in the brain. Too much beta-amyloid has been linked to age-related decline and memory loss. DMAE’s impact on acetylcholine production and beta-amyloid buildup make it beneficial for brain health, especially as we age.
