Q: Okay, so I’m confused… With DHEA, and DMG, and all of the other supplements that sound the same, what does DMAE do?
A: DMAE is an attention deficit supplement. It is supposed to alleviate the behavioral problems and hyperactivity associated with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). DMAE actually increased attention span and decreases aggression, while improving learning ability. It also decreases anxiety and increases alertness. Curiously, it also seems to affect the intelligence quotient and levels of those who truly suffer from ADD, and can sometimes increase their intelligence quotient by 70%. This is after at least 6 weeks since DMAE slowly concentrates withint he body.
Students taking DMAE are able to concentrate on exams better and it is thought that that is because DMAE facilitates the removal of lipofuscin from neurons. Not surprisingly, DMAE may improve athletic performance by improving energy production within the body and stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. DMAE also seems to decrease the incidence and severity of hangovers after an over-consumption of alcohol. Used to treat mild symptoms of depression, DMAE seems able to reduce apathy and increases motivation in people afflicted with depression. It is also thought to increase willpower for things such as smoking cessation and diets. All around, it’s a great supplement to add to your arsenal of others, with too many benefits to mention. Your results, of course, may vary.
