DMHA is known as: 2-amino-6-methylheptane, octodrine and dimethylhexylamine. DMHA is very popular because of its similarities with 1.3 DMAA. Because of the very strong similarities, it is seen as the replacement for DMAA. Just like DMAA, this supplement provides a better focus, larger pump and greatly increases your energy. Due to its strong effects, DMHA is a stimulant that many people are looking for.
Functions of DMHA
Due to the structural similarity of DMAA and DMHA, they share many functions and characteristics. As mentioned before, DMHA provides an improved focus and significantly more energy. It also provides a larger pump since it works as a bronchodilator and decongestant. A decongestant clears the airways so that the user can breathe better and transport more oxygen to the muscles. Because of these properties, this supplement was formerly used as a medicine for people with a cold .
DMHA is becoming increasingly popular among athletes since it has various functions that offer benefits in fitness, bodybuilding and powerlifting. This supplement also has a similar structure with monoamine releasing agents  . This means that this supplement can increase monoamines such as norepinephrine and dopamine. An increase in these monoamines leads to greatly improved motivation  . Research has also shown that DMHA can increase your pain threshold . The increase in pain threshold makes for more intensive workouts where there is less fatigue so better results can be achieved. This supplement is also very interesting because research has shown that it is effective for more than 60 minutes, so that you can benefit from the effects throughout the training .
DMHA has functions that are positive for both athletes and non-athletes. Research has shown that the use of such supplements leads to an increased development of episodic memory   . Episodic memory concerns past events and shapes the way we will respond to similar situations in the future .
There are no official recommendations based on studies on the optimal dosage. Based on the studies done to date and the structural similarity with DMAA, it is stated that doses of 100mg – 150mg are optimal when it is used as a pre-workout. However, we recommend starting with a lower amount to see how your body responds. For optimal effectiveness, it should be taken 15 – 30 minutes before training. We add a 40mg scoop to every order.
DMAA and DMHA

DMHA is not on the doping list. However, it is wise to ask the relevant sports association whether the use of this supplement is allowed in sporting events.
