Today I want to discuss the next nutrient in our series on vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that can contribute to optimum skin health. This is a nutrient you may have never have heard of called DMAE.
So what exactly is DMAE? According to the definition on Nutrition Guides, DMAE (or Dimethylaminoethanol), is a substance that can be found in high concentrations in anchovies and sardines.
In addition, the human brain also produces a trace amounts of DMAE. Throughout the years, it has been widely acclaimed that this wonderful nutrient can be of help to those with hyperactivity or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Also, it has been conjectured that DMAE helps to treat memory lapses and Alzheimer’s disease. More recently DMAE has been shown to be yet another powerful antioxidant in creating skin healthier.
One reason is that this nutrient has one of the strongest appetites for free radicals! It works mostly by deactivating their power to harm skin cells.
It also helps stabilize the membrane around the outside of each cell so that assaults from sun damage and cigarette smoke (even second-hand) are reduced.
According to skin care researchers, DMAE also prevents the formation of lipofucsin, the brown pigment that becomes the basis for age spots. This is huge for many of my clients and I get asked for help in this area all the time.
So this is definitely something to consider if you have this problem. As with the Alpha-Lipoic Acid we talked about yesterday, you can take DMAE in supplement form and in topical cream form.
DMAE is readily available in your local pharmacy store or online as well. As you can see, adding this to your skin care plan can be very beneficial.
I have incorporated this important nutrient into my own supplement strategy for overall good health and great skin, and I recommend that you should as well (as always check with your doctor before beginning to use it).
I always like to give everyone more access to information that you can use today so visit the next link below to get step-by-step information on how to keep your skin healthy, clear, and youthful looking!
Wishing you a healthy and joyous day,
