DMAE Cream Restores Skin Firmness And Improves Mood, Learning And Behavior

Who needs botox when we have DMAE? As a mood-elevating, skin-nourishing smart nutrient that is scientifically proven to work, DMAE is gaining more recognition as a natural alternative to harsh cosmetics and toxic pharmaceuticals.

After consumers complained several years ago to Canada/US Border Services Agencies that DMAE was being confiscated (going both ways at the border) on claims that shipments were illegal health products, those decisions have since been since reversed once enough submissions were produced that DMAE is neither an illegal health product or pharmaceutical drug.

DMAE, or 2-dimethylaminoethanol, is a substance found naturally in the brain in small amounts and also found in fish, anchovies and sardines. There is not much data available on the specific content of DMAE in each type of fish. However, a 1959 study published in “Nature” reported that there are approximately a few milligrams of DMAE per pound of seafood ingested. Therefore, simply increasing the amount of DMAE-containing foods may not be enough for therapeutic potential but they can still help. A therapeutic dose crossing the blood-brain barrier can ilicit an incredible response for transmission of neurons.

It is sometimes referred to as a “cholinergic” because it increases levels of the Neurotransmitter acetylcholine, one of the chemicals in the brain that utilized in memory formation. "Cholinergic" drugs, such as tacrine (Cognex), are used to treat dementia associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

Acetylcholine is involved in proper nerve function as well as learning and memory in the brain. Therefore, consuming DMAE may generate increased amounts of acetylcholine in the brain, thus potentially leading to improved cognitive function.

DMAE helps defend against the degradation of cell membranes. As a highly potent anti-inflammatory, it has been shown to improve the tone, appearance, and firmness of skin by supporting the fundamental components of collagen and elastin. The science is in and DMAE has amazing benefits to help slow down the aging process. 

It has a direct functional activation of the higher integrative brain mechanisms that help maintain normal, healthy cortical vigilance. It has a particular efficiency in restoring deficient higher nervous system activity.

DMAE, with its ability to help maintain brain functions, thus perhaps supports cognitive efficiency. It may compensate for various neuropsychologic deficits ranging from cognitive processes to aging itself.

The benefits of DMAE in dermatology include a anti-inflammatory effect and a documented increase in skin firmness with improvement in underlying facial muscle tone.

Various studies have covered the incredible capabilities of topical DMAE:

  • One study examined the effects of DMAE on cultured human fibroblasts. The scientists found that DMAE decreased fibroblast proliferation and increased fibroblast apoptosis.
  • Another group examined the effects of topical DMAE on mice and humans. Topical DMAE led to increased dermal thickness. DMAE also induced increase in collagen fiber thickness, which was observed in the histopathological study. After the single and the 8-week period application on human skin, formulations with and without DMAE enhanced the stratum corneum water content in the skin where it was applied.
  • In a randomized clinical study, 3% DMAE facial gel applied daily for 16 weeks has been shown to be safe and efficacious (p < 0.05) in the mitigation of forehead lines and periorbital fine wrinkles, and in improving lip shape and fullness and the overall appearance of aging skin. These effects did not regress during a 2-week cessation of application.
  • Two separate studies comprising a total of 38 volunteers found that topical deanol (DMAE) gel increased skin firmness .

Where to find DMAE

DMAE is useful both as an ingested nutritional supplement but more so as a topical application which directly benefits and is absorbed in the skin.

DMAE is found in products with a wide range of applications, including:

  • Moisturizer
  • Lip plumper
  • Face firming
  • Nutritional supplement
  • Skin smoother
  • Pigment correction
  • Eye therapy and “eye lift” effect
  • "Face lift" effect
  • Emollient
  • Acne medication

Please beware of inferior quality DMAE supplements which offer no advantage over regular creams. These are often sourced from inferior raw materials.

While there are thousands of brands of creams and preparations claiming to yield amazing results, only those which properly nourish the skin with the foods it needs are able to deliver lasting benefit, because their effects are achieved within the tissue. However, many millions of consumer dollars are wasted on cosmetic creams and lotions that only supply the illusion of healthy skin.

The Life Choice nutraceutical line which hosts a premier DMAE formulation is one of the best in the world and it was recently included in this past year's Oscar swag bags.

It contains a feast of nutrients to restore skin tone, texture, and elasticity, and help it to develop a healthy, youthful glow. The DMAE Restorative Treatment Cream, along with a well-balanced diet and plenty of fresh water, dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while visibly increasing firmness and lifting years from your skin.
