Are There Any DMAE Side Effects?

DMAE is naturally produced in the body to maintain brain and body health, but taking too much DMAE in supplement form can cause side effects.

Taking more than the recommended amount can cause DMAE side effects like:

The healthy recommended dose of DMAE is between 100-300 mg. However people should start taking DMAE at the lowest dose directed, then increase the amount with time.

People with schizophrenia, epilepsy, and manic depression should not take DMAE supplements. However, DMAE can help people with Attention Deficit Disorder, autism, memory deficiency, dementia, and depression. Increased doses of DMAE block the acetylcholine receptors, which allows more dopamine to be released.

DMAE supplements can help improve many brain functions and can even make skin healthier. DMAE can tighten and tone skin while reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. DMAE has also been linked to helping with weight loss.

DMAE has a number of benefits:

  • Increases memory, concentration, and cognitive learning
  • Improves alertness and energy
  • Decreases anxiety
  • Boosts dopamine effects
  • Contours, tightens, and tones skin
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Dr. Perricone has a line of supplements for beautiful skin, energy and mood, total health, and weight management.

His DMAE supplement is one of his total health supplements. This supplement provides a safe daily amount of DMAE.

One 75 mg pill (1 serving) should be taken twice a day with meals. Taking 2 pills a day is a healthy amount of DMAE to experience benefits without DMAE side effects.

  1. I would love to be a perricone product tester.

  2. I would like to try this Dr. Perricone DMAE for my teen granddaughter who has autism. At 15 years old she is still pretty much low to non-verbal, low functioning & this would certainly enrich & increase the quality of her life. She is not on any medications, just gluten & casein free diet. I could keep an open daily/weekly blog testimonial journal of the observed health benefits (she has extremely dry skin, posing, sometimes extreme emotional outbursts), her academic & social progress, increases of verbal skills & other observed improvements or benefits we notice from her use of this product. I run an online special needs recipe list which would also love to follow the progress of her testing of this product.
