DMAA Supplement List – What’s Still Available in 2018?

BREAKING (Summer 2018): Hi-Tech Pharma’s appeal in the DMAA lawsuit against the FDA has been taken up by the 11th Circuit, and the judges want oral arguments from both sides in August 2018. Stay tuned for more news!

You asked for it, so here it is – a list of supplements containing DMAA / 1,3 Dimethylamylamine that are still available in stores on the market! The days of Jack3d and OxyELITE Pro are long behind us, but what’s left after that?

We keep this page up to date and comments are open. We also have some “legal discussion” about this below (with 2016 updates), but let’s cut to the chase:

What DMAA products are still out there?

  • ALR Industries LipoTherm

    ALR LipoTherm DMAA

    The Extreme Weight Loss and Energy Aid has been spotted!

    Rumor has it that a small stash of LipoTherm has been found for the fall of 2018, but it’s in very limited supply! So if you’re interested in a strong thermogenic weight loss aid, this could be a solid option for you!

    There’s two proprietary blends here, so we unfortunately don’t know much in terms of dosages. But we can tell you there’s nearly every potent fat burning ingredient out there, and then some:

    • DMAA listed as its Methylhexaneamine HCl moniker
    • Caffeine
    • Acacia Rigidula Extract (provides fast-acting, mood-boosting PEA compounds)
    • Yohimbe (prevents fat storage, reduces appetite if taken empty stomach)
    • Citrus Aurantium (likely providing synephrine) and the ultra-thermogenic isopropylnorsynephrine version!

    Needless to say, knowing ALR, this is going to be strong, even if we don’t know the doses! The label is below the price links:

    ALR LipoTherm DMAA Ingredients

    LipoTherm has just about everything!

  • Juggernaut Nutrition IRATE

    Juggernaut Nutrition IRATE with DMAA

    Extreme pre workout formula is right! This has roughly 225mg caffeine next to 70mg DMAA!

    Another newcomer to this list, IRATE here has a relatively simple and straightforward open formula blend fronted by 70mg DMAA yet only 225mg caffeine (150mg caffeine anhydrous + 75mg caffeine from 150mg caffeine citrate since that’s about 50% caffeine).

    This is cool because the caffeine is more reasonable than other products, yet that caffeine citrate hits fast, while caffeine anhydrous is the expected “normal speed” caffeine, and then the 1,3-DMAA is of course way longer lasting – so you have a three-phase energy attack.

    Cool formula here, and a clinical dose of citrulline comes out of that 5g 2:1 citrulline malate to boot!

    Juggernaut Nutrition Irate DMAA

    Cool formula from Juggernaut — simple and straightforward. Just what we like here!

  • Locked & Loaded

    Bodybag Labs Locked & Loaded Pre Workout

    Get Locked & Loaded with this hardcore looking pre workout!

    A newcomer to the list, you know this one’s going to be intense when it comes from a brand named Bodybag Labs!

    We don’t know the doses, but we do know that there’s a 745mg stimulant matrix that’s led by caffeine, followed by theobromine (labeled as 3 7-dihydro-37-dimethyl-1h-purine-26-dione), naringin, and then finally the 1,3 dimethylamylamine many seek.

    Don’t expect much in the way of pumps since the “NO Complex” is led by a non-NO ingredient (beta alanine)… and it’s all a proprietary blend. This one’s basically all for that stimulant blend.

    The rest of the label leaves a lot to wonder about, but there’s a great chance you don’t care since it has the intense stim blend.

  • Centurion Labz God of Rage

    We’ve got a new one to this list — Centurion Labz God of Rage is still out there, and this currently looks like our best deal if you still want to try it out!

    Centurion Labz Rage

    Centurion Labz reformulated this (with the “Reloaded” version), so get in on it while you can!

    This is the version we were looking for

  • Hi-Tech Off the Chain

    Hi-Tech Off the Chain

    Off the Chain is a brand new energy amino supplement from Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals that combines aminos with caffeine AND a nice little dose of 20mg DMAA!

    Here’s one that’s different from everything else on this page!

    Off the Chain is in the category we call energy aminos — amino acid supplements with just a bit of energy.

    These are typically taken as “light pre workouts” or mid-afternoon pick-me-ups — a little bit of energy alongside some aminos to keep you and your muscles fresh

    Launched in March of 2016, Off the Chain features 5g amino acids, and Hi-Tech disclosed the stimulants for us in each scoop:

    Off the Chain Ingredients

    Off the Chain’s Ingredients – This is the version with DMAA. It includes 100mg of caffeine and 20mg of DMAA per scoop.

    • Caffeine: 100mg
    • 1,3 Dimethylamylamine: 20mg

    Absolutely perfect!

    In fact, if you’ve never tried this stimulant before, and want to test the waters very lightly, this is the product we’d recommend at one level scoop! We can almost guarantee it’s gonna feel good.

  • Greymark Pharmaceuticals Octadrene

    Greymark Pharmaceuticals Octadrine

    What’s this? A brand new fat burner NOT from the Hi-Tech Family?! Contains no Octodrine.

    Launched in March of 2016, this is a new brand that we know nothing about. They clearly have some balls, as they’re one of the few non Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals companies willing to produce a DMAA supplement.

    It contains both 28mg ephedra and an undisclosed amount of 1,3, as well as some PEA, synephrine, and rauwolscine. It will likely be extremely strong. The honest truth is that we don’t trust any new brand as much as we trust Hi-Tech, so take caution.

    Does not contain Octodrine!

    Note that the product name is a play on the stimulant “Octodrine”, which is also known as DMHA, or 2-amino-6-methylheptane, a new stimulant on the market that can be considered a lighter competitor to DMAA. But Octadrine does not contain any octodrine, it’s just a clever (yet semi-confusing) product name.

  • Innovative Labs – Wicked Pre Workout

    Innovative Labs Wicked DMAA Pre Workout

    New in January 2016!

    There weren’t enough pre workout supplements on this list, so Innovative Labs also went and put together a new one that hit the market in January of 2016!

    Ingredient Disclosure!

    Innovative Labs has confirmed the two key ingredient doses:

    • 300mg caffeine
    • 70mg DMAA

    This is going to pack a punch – we’d urge you to start at one-half to two-thirds of a scoop!!!!!

    Also, don’t get too fooled by the label — 2-Aminoethanesulfronic acid Silicate is just taurine.

    Besides those proprietary caffeine and Methylhexamine Hcl doses that are now confirmed above, there’s also Rauwolfia serpentina extract, otherwise known as alpha-yohimbine, which may make for a nice and aggressive workout experience!

January 2016 Update: Major news – A federal court has dismissed with prejudice a wrongful death lawsuit against USPLabs and Jack3d! The court ultimately found no scientific evidence that the product is harmful or hazardous, thus exonerating USPlabs and adding to the Hi-Tech case discussed below.
2015 Update: We have new information regarding the DMAA lawsuit between Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals and the FDA. The case is on its way to court, as Hi-Tech is arguing that it was never outright banned, and that the FDA’s warning letters do not constitute as actual law.

The above links are critical reading for anyone who’s interested in DMAA!

Isn’t DMAA illegal? The short answer is NO. The FDA “forbids” it to be marketed and sold as a supplement[1] – so it currently remains in an odd, gray-area status and is elusively hard to find since most manufacturers are afraid to create supplements using it.

However, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is arguing that the ingredient has never been formally banned, and that there was never any “Final Agency Action”. This is now underway in court, and you can stay updated on the links above.

This entire situation makes the products above the easiest way to get your last purchase in, for the time being.

The FDA has been vigilant in removing DMAA from the market, but at the manufacturer / distributor level. They removed nearly $2 million worth from Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals in November of 2013,[3] which is what spurred a portion of the lawsuit discussed above. Interestingly, the FDA never served Hi-Tech with a warning letter, and Hi-Tech argues that the FDA apparently tried to limit their due process.

A more recent warning letter would be the one that RegeneSlim was ‘forced’ to recall in August 2014.[4]

Overall, it seems that the FDA is going after the sources, not the stores or consumers. This makes sense, since the stores are likely to sell out over time anyway.

Stay tuned to the DMAA lawsuit page for more updates in 2015 through 2016!

The safety

This is a relatively strong stimulant. It behaves slightly similarly to ephedrine (which you can also get in limited amounts at your local pharmacy), and it does raise blood pressure.[2]

Note, however, that in the blood pressure study, they used 75mg, which is more than we’d ever take. It also did not raise heart rate in that same study, despite the dosage.

It should only be used by users who have had a full physical and the approval of their doctor, and are in great cardiovascular condition. Fact is, elevated blood pressure could put you at risk, and there’s no way around that.

Taking too much is never a good idea – stick with one serving or less of any of the above products.

The FDA does not say that it is safe.[1]

Interestingly, a 2013 Department of Defense report stated that serious adverse events that occurred could not be causally linked to DMAA use. The review interviewed 1,700 military service members and is 109 pages long.[6] If you’re really interested in this compound, that report is worth reading.

Our thoughts on DMAA

Make no mistake: we love this stimulant when used properly and in low dosages (25mg or less in a day). We also believe it is your right to use what you want, so long as you know the risks.

Despite the FDA finding 86 adverse events with it[1], one must realize that over a billion servings were sold of Jack3d and OxyELITE alone – neverminding everything else that included the ingredient as well. Any stimulant used improperly can lead to these rates. The dosages just got too out of control, and the users got too overconfident with it.

But it’s not DSHEA Compliant?

That said, it was also never fully proven to the FDA’s satisfaction that DMAA can be found in nature, and until it is, it cannot be marketed as a dietary supplement in the US.[5] Hi-Tech may have a say in that, though.

This is what leaves it in the legal gray area. It’s not completely illegal, the FDA just doesn’t want it as a supplement. Time will tell.

Hi-Tech is fighting the FDA

Of course, the most interesting part is that Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, who has products all over this page, has been fighting the FDA on this since 2013. In 2014, they decided to release two of the most popular products on this page – Jack’d Up and HydroxyElite – and are actively suing the FDA over it!

The battle will be interesting, to say the least. You can read more of the details on the links above.

Note on “geranium oil extracts”

As a note, several other products also use “geranium oil extract” to signify the ingredient. It’s highly unlikely that the ingredients were actually extracted from geranium, as most DMAA in these supplements is likely synthetically created (which we’re okay with, as long as we know the dose).

Even though DMAA is undoubtedly found in nature, the FDA deems it all to be non-DSHEA compliant and unfit to be marketed as a supplement, while Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals’ court case has now proven that it is naturally-occurring and has never been outright banned.

So what’s the next big thing?

When Driven Sports CRAZE came out, it seemed that Dendrobium was the next big thing. Turns out, that wasn’t the case – there was some “other” stuff in CRAZE instead. Several legit products have dendrobium, and it seems to be “pretty good”, but it’s clearly not shaking the industry like 1,3 did.

OK, so after Dendrobium, then what?

The next answer seemed to be an ingredient known as AMP Citrate, but that also got squashed. Many considered it to be “DMAA-lite”, but it’s clearly not natural and has been removed from the market.

Interestingly, Hi-Tech Pharma never produced anything with AMP Citrate in it – they do not believe it has enough basis in nature like DMAA and geranium do.

Next stop up: DMHA in 2016

DMHA

DMHA: A new workout/focus stimulant that’s roughly ~90% the strength of DMAA, has animal research, and seems to be compliant? Healthy and experienced stimulant users read on!

In January 2016, we detailed a post on DMHA, which is similar to DMAA but a bit less intense. It’s short for 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine, but also has the names 2-Aminoisoheptane, octodrine, and 2-amino-6-methylheptane.

We’re still yet to see if DMHA will take off, and DMAA is admittedly more intense, but it’s worth knowing about and following throughout 2017. But DMAA is still king.
