I'm not certain that this is entirely true. It does operate in
the cholinergic system, but I don't believe that it is ever synthesized
into choline, I believe it is synthesized directly to acetylcholine. That
is why DMAE is better than choline, they have the same function, but DMAE
more effectively crosses the blood-brain barrier.

Many vitamin supplements can cause harm. Look to ascorbic acid as
one examample of a highly used yet still potentially dangerous supplement.
To much ascorbic acid can cause kidney stones in the long run, and ulcers
Just because it is "natural" doesn't make it safe...
I do agree in regards to the safety of DMAE however, I have not
seen any reports of negative side affects.

B-5 is the most crucial.

I believe that is correct.
