NOTICE: If you are now, or have taken any of the products listed below, or other products that contain DMAA, 1,3-dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, or “geranium extract,” you may be entitled to financial compensation. Call attorney Preston Leonard at (617)329-1295 for more information.
According the FDA, DMAA is known to narrow the blood vessels and arteries, which can elevate blood pressure and may lead to cardiovascular events ranging from shortness of breath and tightening in the chest to heart attack. As of April 2012, the FDA received 42 adverse event reports on products containing DMAA. While the complaints do not establish that DMAA was the cause of the incidents, some of the reports have included cardiac disorders, nervous system disorders, psychiatric disorders, and death. Synthetically-produced DMAA is not a “dietary ingredient” and, therefore, is not eligible to be used as an active ingredient in a dietary supplement. The Defense Department has enacted a ban of all products containing DMAA at military base stores: “the military worries the substance may have contributed to the deaths of two soldiers who had heart attacks during physical training after using DMAA products, as well as the cases of three soldiers and two Marines who collapsed during heavy exercise.” Read the rest of that article here.
