Since 2012, products with 1.3 DMAA have been banned. Because we are no longer able to supply DMAA, we have added the DMAA replacements AMP Citrate and DMHA to our range. Both DMHA and AMP Citrate are easy to order from our webshop. Click on the link to go to the product: AMP Citrate, DMHA. Due to the similar structures with DMAA, the effects of these supplements are almost equal to the effects of 1.3 DMAA despite the cheaper price per gram! We supply AMP Citrate and DMHA at competitive prices and standard with suitable scoop.
What is DMAA
DMAA or Methylhexanamine is generally known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine (1,3-DMAA). Since 2006 DMAA has been extensively sold under many names. It was widely used in pre-workout supplements and was also sold pure until a ban came. It was very popular since it provided consumers with a rapid peak of energy and a better “focus”. It was found in products such as: “jack3d”, “noxipro” and “unstoppable”. It was mainly used in doses from 25mg to 50mg. Due to the strong effects, it was used in almost all popular pre-workout supplements, which earned it a lot of recognition. This strong stimulant was also labeled:
- 1,3-dimethylamylamine (HCL)
- 2-Amino-4-Methylhexane (HCL)
- Geranium extract
In 1942, this substance was patented  and in 1944 it was first put on the market as a medicine. In 2006 Patrick Arnold brought DMAA back onto the market after the ephedrine ban in 2005. The popularity of DMAA was brought to new levels when UPS Labs added it to their JACK3D Pre-Workout. With this addition, they sold $ 400 million pre-workout between 2008 and 2013 according to the US Department of Justice. Of course, many other pre-workout manufacturers started to use this ingredient as it gave people energy they had never experienced before.
From 2010 to 2013, when the demand for DMAA was at its highest, the worldwide exile of DMAA began. It started in 2010 when the US Army launched a recall action covering all products that contained DMAA and came from military stores. This recall action had 2 dead soldiers as a reason. It was thought at the time that these 2 deaths were caused by heart attacks in which DMAA played a role. However, a report was drawn up by the US Department of Defense in 2013, stating that serious adverse events can not be associated with the use of DMAA .
When this situation played, several athletes were caught using this substance to improve their sport performance. There are a lot of different athletes who were caught using DMAA: cyclists, hurdles, footballers, baseball players, and drivers. The many scandals have contributed to the ban on DMAA.
Safety of DMAA
DMAA was known for its very strong effects and it has been studied and shown that it can increase blood pressure when doses of 75mg are used . However, this research has also shown that it does not increase our heart rate. As mentioned before, a report was drawn up in 2013 by the US Department of Defense stating that serious adverse events can not be linked to DMAA use . In total, there are 86 reported cases of side effects. However, it is important to realize that very many doses have been sold and used. Between 2008 and 2013, $400 million worth of Jack3D was sold, which means more than 1 billion doses of Jack3D alone.
