Buying DMAA powder and DMHA powder is still relatively easy to do at a few online supplement retailers. This is despite the rocky relationship the FDA and other regulatory agencies have with DMAA and DMHA.
In this article, we'll cover all of the basics of this powerful drug, provide information on proper dosage and how to use it, and offer suggestions on where to buy DMAA products if you think you might want to try this powder.
Because DMAA comes in a powdered form, you can mix it in with your pre-workout drink or foods. Mix it around a little to let it fully dissolve for the best results. You can also put it in your water, but make sure you read the advisory labels carefully and never take more than the recommended dosage.
With only other user's experience to provide a guideline, it seems a standard dose is anywhere between 10-20 milligrams (mg), which you can take every few hours to a total of 40-60 mg.
DMAA, otherwise known as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, is an amphetamine. It is most commonly manufactured in China as a raw material and imported into the United States in powder form. Years ago, corporations started using DMAA powder in dietary supplements called pre-workouts. Because of its powerful stimulatory effect, it quickly rose to popularity in the sports nutrition industry. Many companies claimed that DMAA was a dietary ingredient and could be used mainly for pre-workout supplementation to increase performance and workout intensity. However, the FDA disagreed and subsequently declared the use of DMAA as a dietary supplement illegal. DMAA ended up on the radar of the FDA because of the side effects associated with its use. The most prevalent was the death of a military soldier that used a supplement containing DMAA. The military was quick to ban the use of DMAA because of its popularity amongst its soldiers.
One might wonder how DMAA powders like Dark Energy Pre Workout Supplements get manufactured. No contract packager in their right mind would risk losing their business because they decided to package a product that the FDA has declared illegal to sell as a dietary supplement. Therefore one can conclude that a product like Dark Energy is made by Dark Energy themselves.
The company purchases raw materials. Most likely, the DMAA that is being sold in the United States is purchased from China. The Chinese have no problem selling DMAA powder and liquid to U.S. companies. A simple Alibaba search will find hundreds of Chinese companies selling DMAA. The problem with buying product from China is the quality. Chinese companies are notorious for selling counterfeit and bogus products. The U.S. company buying the DMAA has no idea that the DMAA is legitimate or not until they actually conduct their own laboratory analysis. Most of the time, the Chinese will make synthetic ingredients, like vitamins and herbs. Therefore it would not surprise me if they were making synthetic DMAA.
After the DMAA is smuggled through customs, the purchaser can assemble their product. Since most legitimate contract packagers will handle the material, the company will package the DMAA powder at their residence or warehouse.
Technically, the DMAA powder should be tested for identity, purity, and strength BEFORE it is packaged. Then after packaging, the product should be tested again for microbials and once more for strength.
Valentus SlimROAST Optimum Dark Roast Coffee (presented as sachets and as a powder in a tub) has been tested by Medsafe and found to contain methylhexanamine (DMAA) and phenethylamine. Methylhexanamine is a prescription medicine and phenethylamine is a class C controlled drug.
Reported concentrations of DMAA ranged from 68 to 496 ng/g, whereas a minimum dosage of 20mg-30mg is required to be effective. The takeaway It would take quite a lot of geranium plants to extract enough DMAA, which is why manufacturers choose to produce it synthetically.
When using Hooligan V5, you can experience an incredible surge of energy, maximum focus to provide a powerful mind-muscle connection, a sleeve-ripping pump, as well as the ability to enhance your strength. This is not for beginners and especially from stimulant sensitive wimps who think anything over 300mg of caffeine is strong. With some of the most effective ingredients available today, this pre-workout powder will not disappoint.
As mentioned above, the precise mix of ingredients found in this pre-workout powder is what increases the strength and gives you BALLS to throw weight around like an animal. This unique array of ingredients work together to enhance the overall effect felt during your intense workouts. In fact, they may scare you and it's DMAA free. WTF RIGHT
Separation of the derivatized product was performed using a XB-C18column with a 70/30 acetonitrile/water mobile phase, with the water phasecontaining 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid. This column should have been capable ofresolving the pair of derivatized 1,3-DMAA diastereomers. However, again onlya single peak was identified in the chromatogram of the spiked geranium oilsample (Zhang et al, Figure 5: Note that this figure indicates that the oilsample was spiked with 30 ppb 1,3-DMAA whereas the experimental write-upindicates samples were spiked with 100 ppb 1,3-DMAA). Detection wasaccomplished using multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) of the m/z 349 to 171transition corresponding to the loss of the primary dansyl fragment. The LODreported for the spiked geranium oil using the HPLC-ESI-QQQ method wasreported to be 10 ppb (assumed to be by mass). The authors note that the LODrefers to the concentration of the neat 1,3-DMAA and not the derivatizedproduct, and report that no 1,3-DMAA was detected in any of the 8 geraniumoil samples using this method. It is unclear how the authors established aLOD for either method.
A recent patent application by Northern Innovations andFormulations Corp. for an herbal supplement prepared from geranium, describesan extraction method that claims to optimize the 1,3-DMAA content of the oilby extracting the oil with an alcohol/water mixture, separating the oil andwater phases, concentrating and drying the aqueous phase to a powder, andthen, after purifying the oil, combing the powder with the purified oil. (25)This process is claimed to achieve 1,3-DMAA concentrations in the range of 1%to 3% suggesting that much of the 1,3-DMAA extracted during production ofessential oils may end up in the aqueous phase. This would be anotherpotential reason why analyses of essential oils fail to identify measurablelevels of 1,3-DMAA.
The recent studies summarized in this report provide conflictingevidence that 1,3-DMAA is found naturally in certain species of geraniumplants. However, differences in the samples sources, extraction procedures,and methods of analysis may account for the conflicting results. The genusPelargonium includes more than 270 distinct species, most of which areindigenous to South Africa, but many of which are now widely cultivated inRussia, Egypt, India, and China, now the largest producer of geranium oil.(16,21,26) Many of the cultivars grown for production of essential oil areinterspecies hybrids (21) and studies have shown that the composition andquality of the extracted oil depends on the variety of plant, method ofextraction, type of soil, and climate conditions. (9,16,17,21) Thus, it isnot completely surprising that some plant materials and extracted oil samplescontain 1,3-DMAA whereas others do not.
Finally, these studies show that there is considerableplant-to-plant variability in 1,3-DMAA content. In plant materials where1,3-DMAA has been quantitatively detected, all of which are sourced fromChina, concentrations are generally less than 500 ppb. However, some plantsfrom China contain no detectable levels of 1,3-DMAA while one geranium oilsourced from China contained over 13 ppm 1,3-DMAA.
