Twinlab - DMAE H3 - 1.67 oz. (50 mL)
Twinlab DMAE-H3 (Dimethylaminoethanol) a concentrated solution of the PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid) salt of DMAE stabilized with benzoic acid. DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) by itself is alkaline and caustic. Therefore, only salts and esters of DMAE are used. DMAE naturally occurs as liquid in its concentrated form.
DMAE (2-dimethylaminoethanol) is a chemical produced in the brain. DMAE is found as a supplement, although it is not widely available. Dimethylaminoethanol is related to choline and may be a biochemical precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, although this conclusion has been disputed. It is believed that dimethylaminoethanol is methylated to produce choline in the brain. It is known that dimethylaminoethanol is processed by the liver into choline; however, the choline molecule is charged and cannot pass the blood-brain barrier.
Short-term studies have shown an increase in vigilance and alertness with a positive influence on mood following administration of DMAE, vitamins, and minerals in individuals suffering from borderline emotional disturbance. Research for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been promising, though inconclusive. Long-term studies are equivocal. Some showed dimethylaminoethanol to increase the lifespan of animals in which it was tested, while others indicate a possible reduction in the average life span of quail.
Twinlab has had had one simple and over-riding objective for nearly 30 years. To bring you products that are based on the latest science, and are manufactured to the highest level pharmaceutical standards.
This is Twinlab's mission for everything that has their name on it: vitamins, minerals, sports nutrition products, special formulas and amino acids. Twinlab's herbs are sold under the Nature's Herbs brand, and their herbal teas under the Alvita brand, but the commitment and standards are the same.
Twinlab's leadership is reflected in the firsts they have brought to the market:
- The first complete line of amino acids
- The first complete line of fish and marine oils
- The most advanced and complete array of antioxidants
- All-capsule vitamin and mineral line well tolerated by allergic individuals
But Twinlab is not only motivated to be first, they are driven to be best. Twinlab insists on their own manufacturing (trust can't be transferred), which takes place in their state-of-the-art facility in American Fork, Utah.
All told, Twinlab produces more than 500 different products. Why so many? Because everyone has their own needs, yet everyone has the same goal: to live healthier, to achieve wellness, to derive the maximum quality of life each and every day. To the extent Twinlab helps you achieve this, they consider it a privilege.
