Quote from alt.psychoactives:

"DMAE is basically a choline molecule with one methyl
group missing from the nitrogen. DMAE is more able to cross the
blood-brain barrier than choline. Once inside the brain, an enzyme
performs a methylation that converts DMAE into choline", then choline into
acetylcholine. The benefit is that you can "absorb" more, leading to a
higher concentration already in the brain and increasing the odds for
boosting your acetylcholine levels.
