Di-Methyl-Amino-Ethanol (DMAE) is known to increase learning, memory and intelligence. It also has the effect of increased alertness without the restless effects that caffeine produces. DMAE is naturally present in small amounts in the brain. DMAE affects the brain's levels of acetylcholine. It is thought that low doses of DMAE should be used at first, with a gradual build up to 500 mg. per day. If taken in doses higher than the body needs, DMAE can cause insomnia, headaches and muscle tension. Adverse side-effects are rare in proper dosages, but it has been noted that those who suffer from bipolar disorders or chronic depression should avoid this substance. DMAE can be found in fish, hence the reason fish has is referred to as "brain food."
