Prohormone & Supplement Ingredients:

1,3, Dimethylamylamine (DMAA, Methylhexanamine, Geranamine)

AKA DMAA, Methylhexanamine, Geranamine I first ran across this when I was researching Double Dragon's Juiced product for adding it to ProhormoneDB. IMagine my surprise when I dug into it to see what it was....

First off, let me get off my chest that I think calling it 1,3, Dimethylamylamine is sort of a head fake. I think it's being referred to this way because it resembles the compound nomemclature of most of the prohormones out there. IN truth, the most common name for this chemical, which happens to be a stimulant, is Methylhexaneamine. However, it can also be listed using any of the following (in addition to 1,3, Dimethylamylamine): Dimethylpentylamine, and Geranamine Geranium Oil.

Yes, you did read stimulant above. Athletes have started using this over the last few years to increase metabolic rate and promote weight loss. Companies claim this supplement can trigger fat loss, but when has the marketing communication of a company been trustworthy? It acts much like amphetamines and ephedrine and is derived from the geranium plant. It was first developed in 1944 by Eli Lilly, and in 1971 was trademarked under the name Forthane for use as a nasal decongestant.

Even more interesting: Patrick Arnold (a name mamy prohormone users recognize) reintroduced methylhexanamine into the market in 2006 as a dietary supplement after the final ban of ephedrine in the United States in 2005. Arnold introduced it under the trademarked name Geranamine, a name held by his company, Proviant Technologies.

In New Zealand, methylhexanamine (under the name 1,3-dimethylamylamine or DMAA) is being used as an additive to "party pills", with users experienceing side-effects including headache, nausea, and stroke. In November 2009, the New Zealand government indicated that methylhexanamine would be scheduled as a restricted substance. Although New Zealand hasn't banned methylhexanamine in the form of capsules and tablets, but its Ministry of Health has banned bulk powder purchases.

In 2009, the World Anti-Doping Agency added methylhexanamine to the 2010 prohibited list after five Jamaican athletes used it as a stimulant. American pro tennis player Robert Kendrick was disqualified from the 2011 French Open, and banned from tennis for 12 months by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) after testing positive for Methylhexaneamine at the event.
