DMAE 100 mg 4 a day
Dimethylaminoethenol (DMAE) is a metabolite of procaine. Procaine was used in Romania by
Ana Aslan in the treatment of age-related problems. She found that procaine would reduce
monoamine oxidase (MAO), an enzyme that increases with age and correlates with age-related problems. Over a period of many years she claimed to have increased the average life span of her patients by 29 years. Her formula was called Gerovital H3. Another metabolite of procaine is para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). DMAE and PABA are claimed to be the oral equivalent of the Aslan injection. (14) Recommended daily amounts are 400 mg for DMAE and 200 mg for PABA. DMAE can cross the blood-brain barrier and is claimed to be superior to choline for the
biosynthesis of acetylcholine, a brain messenger, and may be beneficial in Alzheimer's and other mental problems. No data on toxicity.
