October 14, 2015 — The Defense Department’s Human Performance Resource Center (HPRC) has compiled a list (PDF) of 39 pre-workout supplements that may contain DMAA, a hazardous and illegal stimulant drug.
HPRC warns that soldiers who use DMAA may be putting their health and their military careers at risk because the FDA considers it an illegal drug, according to the Military Times.
DMAA-laced supplements have been banned from military exchanges since 2012, after the drug was found in the blood of two soldiers who had heart attacks during exercise. Investigators could not find enough evidence to conclude that DMAA caused their deaths, but warned that it could pose health risks.
In 2013, the FDA warned that DMAA “can cause high blood pressure and lead to heart attacks, seizures, psychiatric disorders and death.” The FDA succeeded in taking some supplements off the market, but many more are still being produced. One supplement, OxyElite Pro, was re-formulated and caused a deadly outbreak of liver damage.
DMAA is commonly listed on ingredient labels as 1,3-dimethylamylamine, geranium oil or extract, and dozens of other names. Only independent third-party testing can conclusively determine if DMAA is an ingredient in a workout supplement.
