This Deadly Ingredient is Still Being Sold In a Supplement, Make Sure You Don’t Have It

DMAA, you may or may not have heard of this ingredient.  DMAA is an ingredient that a company called USPlabs made popular a few years ago.  It was in a product called Jack3d.  It was supposedly a prew-orkout supplement.  DMAA made you feel…well…JACKED.  Kinda like you drank 3 red bulls.  Unfortunately, out of coincidence, people started kicking the bucket.  Lawsuits were filed blaming USPlabs and other companies, like GNC for killing the people consuming these supplements.  Needless to say the FDA got involved and called DMAA an illegal ingredient and started yanking it from the retail shelves. But can you still believe this ONE company is still selling it????

Here is a statement on the FDA’s website about DMAA

DMAA, also known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine or geranium extract, is an ingredient found illegally in some dietary supplements and often touted as a “natural” stimulant. DMAA, especially in combination with other ingredients such as caffeine, can be a health risk to consumers. Ingestion of DMAA can elevate blood pressure and lead to cardiovascular problems ranging from shortness of breath and tightening in the chest to heart attack. Dietary supplements containing DMAA are illegal and FDA is doing everything within its authority to remove these products from the market. In 2012, FDA issued warning letters to companies notifying them products with DMAA need to be taken off the market or reformulated to remove this substance. Most companies warned are no longer distributing products with DMAA. While FDA is working to get these products off the market, consumers should not buy or use any dietary supplement product containing DMAA.

On July 2, 2013, as a result of follow-up legal action by FDA, the dietary supplement firm USPlabs voluntarily destroyed its DMAA-containing products located at its facility in Dallas, Texas. The products – USPlab’s OxyElite Pro and Jack3d – are estimated to have been worth more than $8 million at the retail level. USPlabs has agreed to stop manufacturing dietary supplements containing DMAA.

USPlabs agreed to destroy the products after FDA administratively detained them under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, recently amended by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Under its administrative detention authority, FDA can detain a food or dietary supplement product if the agency has reason to believe the product is adulterated or misbranded. The agency can keep detained products out of the marketplace for a maximum of 30 days while it determines whether to take further enforcement action, such as seizure. Under FDA regulations, detained articles can be voluntarily destroyed by their owner.

FDA continues to advise consumers not to buy or use dietary supplement products that contain DMAA due to the health risks they present.

Now, can you believe that some companies continue to sell this crap, DMAA?  Here’s my problem with this & why the sports nutrition industry is filled with scumbags.  I just read in the news this company called Hi-tech pharmacueticals is still selling DMAA from the new website naturalproductinsider.  Here is the article I read.

The problem is, that DMAA is not going to help you build muscle.  It won’t.  It shouldn’t be consumed by anyone.  I wouldn’t want my son to use this or anyone I cared about using it.  And that my friends is the problem.  Everyone thinks that just because its on the retail shelf that it is safe to use.  Well this product is NOT safe to use in my opinion, and High-Tech pharmacueticals and their owner is nothing but a scum bag selling drugs to make a living.  They should be ashamed of themselves and they don’t belong in this industry.  And on a side note…Muscular Developement…a big time muscle magazine is a bunch of losers as well for accepting their advertising.  Would they accept an ad for child porn?  No they wouldn’t.  So why should they accept an ad from this scumbag company selling a dangerous ingredients.  Two middle fingers up to High Tech Pharma and Muscular Developement Magazine…greedy little piss ants!
