DMAE for lipofuscin removal

Unread postby Rachel » Fri Nov 23, 2012 4:22 pm

I've heard for many years that DMAE can remove age pigment from the body.

In adults, high-dose DMAE is especially useful in lipofuscin dissolution. Lipofuscin is a brownish cellular pigment consisting of molecular waste formed by the inefficient metabolism of fatty acids, resulting from oxidative stress. In the skin, especially the back of the hand, this debris manifests as either “age spots” or “liver spots,” which act as a sentinel for lipofuscin potentially present inside the body, including the brain, neurons and heart.

DMAE has the ability to dissolve lipofuscin and can work both inside and on the body. The mechanism for this action is fat emulsion. DMAE has properties similar to that of lecithin. Lecithin emulsifies fat in the liver and both of these substances produce acetylcholine in the body. However, DMAE and not lecithin is capable of lessening lipofuscin. The oral dosing of DMAE must be between 1,600 to 3,000 mg per day. One should start with a low dose of DMAE and slowly work up to this higher dose. Once the high dose is reached it must be maintained for five to six months for effects to be noticed.

That's a pretty dang high dose of DMAE!
Beyond a Century carries it in powder form.

Does anyone have personal experience/results with this protocol?

Interesting! Lipofuscin in the brain and heart? It is far more villainous than I'd realized...
