DMAE and Anti-Aging

You may have heard of DMAE from Dr. Oz or Dr. Perricone.  DMEA's full name is "dimethylaminoethanol" and is a naturally occurring nutritional substance with powerful anti-inflammatory properties.  It is found in fish, including Alaskan salmon, anchovies and sardines.

DMAE is important in the production of neurotransmitters, especially acetylcholine, which is essential in the communication from one nerve to another and between nerves and muscles.

How does DMAE affect aging? 
Taking DMAE as a supplement will not only improve your cognitive function, it will help increase skin firmness and muscle tone.  Recent studies have confirmed that using DMAE topically (as in Viva Amaze Concentrated Anti-Aging Serum) has a positive effect on the skin, greatly increasing the appearance of radiance, tone and firmness, while decreasing the micro-inflammation in the skin.

One word of caution: some studies have shown that the DMAE could make epilepsy and biopolar depression worse, so it is advised that those with these health problems avoide DMAE.
