NOOCLERIN ® [Deanol aceglumate, DMAE]


Nooclerin ® (Deanol aceglumate) is one of the oldest nootropic drugs. It is also known as DMAE, a widely used cognitive-enhancing and anti-aging supplement.

Indications for use are:

  • Asthenia (chronic fatigue);
  • Depression;
  • Recovery from traumatic brain injuries;
  • Alcohol abstinence syndrome;
  • Decreased mental capacity in children above 10 years of age;
  • Neurasthenia and organic brain syndrome.

According to numerous clinical trials, Deanol appears to be highly effective in patients with chronic fatigue, depression. It has fewer side effects compared to amphetamine derivatives that are often used in the ADHD treatment, so it might be used as a safer alternative to Adderall.

Initially, it was proposed that, DMAE as a choline precursor, is able to increase brain acetylcholine levels, thus producing a cholinergic effect. More recent studies suggest that DMAE acts as a potent free radical scavenger and antioxidant, which may be responsible for its anti-aging and nootropic effects.
