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 am 62. I have farmed and ranched for 40 years. I also have naturaly very dry skin. I also sell insurance to the medicare age people. Would sure like to test this product….Thanks

  2. I AM 55YEARS OLD AND I WOULD LOVE TO TRY SAMPLES OF DMAE SUPPLEMENTS AND SKIN CARE PRODUCTS. I WOULD LIKE TO BE A TESTER FOR PERRICONE PRODUCTS AND OR SUPPLEMENTS! THANK YOU

  3. I would love to be a tester. I am going on 67 years old and have watched the Dr. Oz show and have ordered my first product. Looking forward to seeing a change in my skin. I have been told that I do not look my age more than once. So if I can keep it that way or improve my skin that would be even better.

  4. I just turned 60 in age but am 30 in spirit.I have always been told that I look younger than my age however the past 6 years and the Arizona sun have begun to pay toll on my face and over all skin. I have two horse so I do spend a sizeable amount of time outdoors.I use skin products with sun protection BUT I am still paying the price.
    I was surprised to hear that DMAE and your product is also good for many other conditions. My concern is in cognitive as I have seen a difference in my thinking process. I am a retired police officer and my senses aren’t as sharp as they had been just 6 years ago. I am not expecting a miracle or looking for a fountain of youth but something to slow down the process or to fill the the sagging lines around my mouth. As a police officer I have given 21 years of my life to serving others let me help test your product and serve as a testimony to its effectiveness.

  5. I just celebrated my 49th birthday and made the choice to call it a celebration because I feel great and have a wonderful life. However with my 50th birthday approaching I would love to be a tester for your DMAE products. I would hope to see a new vibrancy in my skin and also help with the symptoms of menopause.

  6. A friend purchased DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol Birtartrate) for me in the powder form. How is the best way use for for wrinkles and skin

  7. I am 60 years old and would love to be a Perricone tester for DMAE products. I would love to try this wrinkle cure and look younger. Thank You!

  8. I would love to test your products>

  9. I’ve always been told I look younger than my age, but who wouldn’t want to look better no matter what your age? I’ve just recently heard about DMAE & would love an opportunity to try it.

  10. I would be ever so grateful to have the opportunity to be a tester.
    I live in Athens, Greece. I am 54 years old. 9 months ago I had 2 heart attacks, am diabetic, and obese. I work very hard at maintaining my glucose levels, inject a lot of insulin throughout the day, but am not completely successful. If this stuff could help me, then I would be ever so grateful… and what an endorsement it would be for others to have hope. Thank you so much.

  11. I worked in the surgery dept of an internationally known clinic for over 20 years and saw what men and women put themselves through for smoother, younger looking skin and I didn’t want any part of it. I would love to try the DMAE skin products as a more natural and painless way to achieve similar results, especially after seeing this on the Dr Oz show as well.

  12. I have rheumatoid arthritis for 11 years now and just recently have noticed that my skin is starting to lose elasticity. I am a 58 year young female and take multiple supplements and do most everything possible to maintain health. Do you think that dmae supplements can help with the connective tissue throughout my body?

  13. I would like to become a Perricone tester for both more brain power and to reduce wrinkles.

    Thank you!

  15. I have a question. Can I, or rather should I use a DMAE cream (with vit. c) after a co2 laser treatment? I am 10 days. post treatment

  16. I am a 50 year old woman with great skin. I am told I look a lot younger than my age. I would love to keep it that way. I would enjoy testing your products before I invest in them. Being a teacher makes me research any items that I read about before investing and I have heard great things about DMAE.

  18. I am 59 yrs young and I would love to be a tester!

  19. I am in the beauty industry and I am always seeking ways to help my clients look and feel their best. I am dedicated to finding the most natural forms of treatments available. I am curious to know if DMAE has any effects on thinning hair as well and would love to take part in your testing.

  20. I would like to try DMAE

  21. I already use some of the products from this line. I feel aging is a state of mind and also a science. I am constantly reading books and watching what I eat. I am amazed how eating nutritous foods not only keeps us healthy from disease but also helps us maintain a healthy and glowing appearance and good attitude. I have had many people think I look 15-20 years younger than I am. I want to be a tester!

  22. I would love to become a tester. I have a child with ADD and would like to see how it works for her as well as the benefits for myself. Thanks!

  23. I saw Dr. Perricone on Dr. Oz show. Was impressed with his research with DMAE and the results possible both in appearance & health and longevity. I am a 55 year old female who had a complete hystorectomy at 40 years old. I think DMAE would help me in many ways. I would love to become a tester. Thanks.

  24. I would love to be a tester, I have sensitive skin and some drooping .I would love to have a new lease on life. Thanks

  25. I would like to become a tester!

  26. I would be interested in becoming a tester. I am 47 years old and 6 yrs ago lost my son and mother in a tragic car accident. Since that day I have noticed my mental clarity has faded and my anxiety level has increased. I have also begun noticing how old my face looks from wrinkles. I have two young children and don’t want to look like their grandmother when they graduate.

  27. I just started taking DMAE and I have noticed a bit more mental clarity. However, I haven’t noticed a change in my skin yet. I would love to become a tester of your products. Thank you!

  28. I HAVE BEEN ON DMAE SINCE FOR SEVERAL YEARS, ALONG WITH 2 SISTERS, BROTHER, MOTHER, DAUGHTER, SEVERAL FRIENDS AND WORK ASSOCIATES. MY SKIN DOES NOT LOOK 62 YEARS OLD, MORE LIKE THE FORTIES. I ATTENDED A REUNION AND MY FRIENDS THOUGHT I HAD A FACELIFT, UNTIL I TOLD THEM ABOUT DMAE. TWO FRIENDS HAVE USED IT FOR COLLEGE TESTS, NURSING EXAMS, SLEEP, ENERGY, SO WHAT MORE CAN I SAY. WE ARE BEAUTIFUL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO THOSE WHO SUFFER WITH FIBROMYALGIA, DEMENTIA, ADD, AND MORE. BECAUSE IT HELPS THE BRAIN TO FUNCTION WHEN THE BODY IS BUSY STAVING OFF PAIN, OR DIVERSISEONS. IT IS THE BEST SMART PILL EVER DISCOVERED. I USE IT EVERYDAY ALONG WITH DMAE CREAMS. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR THE ONGOING DISCVERIES OF THIS FANTASTIC DRUG. I’D LOVE TO USE IT AGAIN.

  30. I would love to test DMAE. Thank you!

  31. I have been using DMAE for three years as a suppliment as well as facial cream. I am reaping the benefits of this wonderful product. The only possible side effect I have noticed with the suppliment is that I tend to be overly chatty sometimes with loss of filters in communication. My skin looks beautiful, I am 53.

  32. Hi I have good skin for my age. I’m 52.
    However I have noticed a little sagging starting.
    I would be so grateful to have the oportunity to be a tester
    For your products.
    Maria

  33. I have recently started taking DMAE. I began taking it for my ageing skin and having read about the side effects, in particular the fact that it helps with
    depression. I will contine taking my DMAE daily. Thank you!

  34. I am 58 yrs young, lost my job 2 1/2 yrs ago & trying to get back on track. I need all the help I can get! I would love to become a tester!!

  35. I would love to be a tester as I would love to see a rise in my grades!

  36. i would love to try the products

  37. Would love love love to test some of your products. 38 with combo skin and looking for something to help with firmness clarity tone texture and mild acne

  38. I was having major acne problems, thin, and dull skin. My dad said he was watching the Dr. Oz show and they were talking about DMAE being an insant face lift and the benefits of taking it internally. I started using it about 2 months ago, twice a day. All I can say is WOW! My skin has never looked this great! and healthy. I get compliments on my complexion non-stop! I look like I’m in my early 20′s now and I’m almost 33. I actually think I look better than I did when I was 20. I’m not doing anything different besides taking DMAE. I think it’s the best kept secret for aging and acne. I haven’t been able to get rid of acne using accutane or anything. The dermatologist would lose too much money if people took using dmae seriously. It’s on $15 too….best vitamin ever created!

  39. I FOUND I HAVE A FUNNY TASTE ALL THE TIME.TAST LIKE FREEZER BURN FOOD SINCE IHAVE BEEN TAKING 2 CAPSULES DMAE A DAY OR MAY IT COULD BE GRAPE SEED EXTRACT? CATHERINE SOUIL

  40. Well, let’s see, I have Asperger’s, my oldest son (8) has Autism and my youngest son (6) has Asperger’s also. I have implemented DMAE before into my oldest son’s regimen of biomedical treatments/supplements, however, it was at a time that he was nonverbal, so he could never tell me if he felt different. I never tried it on myself or my other son at that time. We are reentering the biomedical realm and would like the chance to see/feel the positive effects of DMAE and have my son, now that he is verbal, be able to communicate to me the differences he feels. Thanks!

  41. I am 47yrs old with rosecea for about 6 months with some dermititis, and with really sensitive skin :( I’ve started taking DMAE 100mg for a about three months. Then I began to develop bad headaches then migrain. I stopped taking the DMAE and headaches stopped. My face had some improvement. I would like to have an opportunity to be a tester… Please I am desperate!!

  42. The DMAE benefits sound terrific!! I would love to be a tester for this product. I am 44 years old and really showing my age with sagging skin, jowls. This in combination with Alpha Lopoic acid and a good diet regimen should really turn things around. Many thanks!!

  43. Hi I am 58 years young and have very deep groves from the outside of my nose going down to the corners of my lips and then from the corner of my mouth down to the corners of chin, very deep groves have had these for years, upon looking at my dad he was very wrinkled for years as well, my face is almost identical to his, I hate my face, also have lots of puffiness, would like to be involved in the trail, but unfortunately live in Canada. Also have some loss of memory, and forgetfulness, as well as I think am depressed more then should be.

  44. I would love to test new things. Saw Dr. Oz show and DMAE sounds like a miracle.

  45. I am almost 50 with minimal wrinkles, always had some because I am a red head. Very much into nutrition, not over weight, do yoga to keep up muscle tone. Would like to be a tester if it is still available. I read and research nutrition and biochemistry for a hobby.

  46. I’d love to become a Perricone Tester. I’m a 62 Hispanic lady, believed to be ADD and with skin and memory issues.
    Thank you

  47. I would LOVE to become on of Dr. Perricone’s testers!!! I am 61 years old. I have always taken good care of my skin and can easily pass for my early 50′s. I am starting to notice changes in my skin and want to put a halt to as much as possible with the use of supplements and topicals. I’d like to continue to look younger than my years and I think Dr. Perricone’s expertise is AMAZING!!!

  48. I am 55 years old and I often get mistaken for much younger.
    I would like to keep it that way…If DMAE is the secret then I would love to be a tester.

  49. I am 54 yrs old, and I am considering having a lifestyle lift for my face, I have decent skin texture, no noticable wrinkles, however the firmness in my face has decreased and I have a sagging neck, I am so embarrased when I meet people and they are looking at me I feel that they are staring at my drooping neck and I somehow try to conceal it with my hands or whatever I can conceal it with, which probably draws more attention. I began research and found that DMAE may help me make improvements, I would love to be a tester, please help me.

    thanks

  50. I am 60 and have extremely sensitive skin. I have had excels since childhood. I often get rashes from skincare products, but would be willing to try some products. I enjoy reading Dr. perricone’s books.
