DMAE Boosts Brain Efficiency and Mood

Researchers found that DMAE boosts brain functioning, increased mood and had other positive effects on the brain.They stated that DMAE boosted mood, a rather strong finding. These researchers were clear in their conclusions:
Subjects taking the active drug [DMAE] for 3 months developed significant less theta and alpha1 power in sensomotoric areas of the cortex. . . . . Since decreases in theta and alpha1 electrical power have been associated with increased vigilance and attention, subjects taking the drug combination obviously were more active and felt better. . . . Both scores revealed a better mood for the active drug group . . . . Therefore . . . DMAE can be interpreted to induce a psychophysiological state of better feeling of wellbeing on both levels of analysis mood and electrical pattern of brain activity in subjects suffering from borderline emotional disturbance.
These strong statements are significant. They suggest that DMAE may have a role in the treatment of mood disorders. It may also be appropriate for those who are healthy and who wish to boost mental functioning on an occasional basis.
