1,3 Dimethylamylamine was first claimed to be extracted from the geranium plant. Later research studies showed it is more likely to be a synthetic product when used for nutritional supplements. Commonly known as DMAA, it was widely used in pre workout supplements. This supplement was originally used in nasal decongestants around 1940-1970 but later gained notoriety as a powerful stimulant.
Often used prior to training sessions or competitions, 1,3 Dimethylamylamine has been compared to ephedrine, another powerful stimulant, in regards to its effect on blood pressure and heart rate. Athletes interested in the ingredient may have “missed the boat” for the most part since DMAA has been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and has been removed from the majority of pre workout supplements on the market.
Athletes not competing in drug tested events or simply wanting to step their training intensity up a notch can still find a few products that contain DMAA can lead to intense focus and an extreme spike in energy for those grueling training sessions. Use of this product can lead to longer and more productive workouts. If you’re an intense athlete looking for an intense supplement this may be for you.
Sources and Dosage
Although claimed to be found in some food sources, this compound is almost exclusively made in a laboratory. Even though it has been banned by WADA and also removed from most pre workout supplements, there are still some products that contain 1,3 D which an athlete can use for intense workouts. Make sure that you follow the directions on whatever these product that you decide to use to ensure the safest possible experience. A few of the products MFN sells that contain 1,3 Dimethylamylamine
