Protect The Body and Mind: DMAE Benefits

As skin ages, it can take on a saggy appearance along with wrinkles and fine lines. Luckily, DMAE, short for Dimethylaminoethanol, whether applied topically or taken as an oral supplement, may have anti-aging benefits that protect and tighten skin.

The two ways DMAE is used are:

  • Topically
  • Orally

Benefits of Applying DMAE Topically

DMAE has the ability to tighten sagging skin because of the role it plays in acetylcholine production. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that causes muscle contraction. However, as the body ages, it produces less of this important chemical and therefore diminishes its ability to allow for muscle contraction and tone. When the muscles behind the face lose their tone, the skin begins to sag.

DMAE, when applied as a cream to the skin, treats the source of sagging skin, by increasing the movement and ability of muscles behind the face. When the muscles have regained much of their contracting ability and become toned, the result in firmer, smooth skin with less wrinkles.

DMAE benefits can also be achieved in supplement form.

Benefits of Taking DMAE ORAL Supplements

When taken orally, DMAE has two special benefits. One is that it strengthens other antioxidants, like alpha lipoic acid. Antioxidants are important in an anti-aging regimen because they protect the body from damaging free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules caused by stressors such as overexposure to sunlight and smoking cigarettes, which attack at the cellular level. Antioxidants prevent the free radicals from reaching the cell membrane, which can stop or even reverse the damage and sub-clinical inflammation associated with free radicals, including the microscopic scarring that form wrinkles.

Try Perricone for as little at $10.

DMAE is also perhaps best known for its use as an oral supplement because of its positive effects on cognitive thinking. DMAE’s role in the production of acetycholine is why it is so beneficial. DMAE is able to enhance brain activity because of its ability to move through the brain-blood barrier where it can produce acetycholine to increase brain function.

To learn more about DMAE consider watching this video from Dr. Perricone:

Dr. Perricone understands the benefits of DMAE and has included it as a key ingredient in many of his products. One example is the Perricone MD best selling Advanced Face Firming Activator. The Advanced Face Firming Activator also includes the ingredient alpha lipoic acid (ALA).

The benefits of DMAE, both topically and orally, have a positive effect on the body. It treats the source of sagging skin, adds protection from free radicals, and improves the functions of the brain.
