OxyElite Pro Deaths

OxyElite Pro deaths have been reported with two different formulations of the product, including the original formula (which contained DMAA) and re-formulated OxyElite Pro (which contained aegeline).

Hawaii Woman Dies After taking OxyElite Pro

In October 2013, Hawaii News Now reported that a woman who took OxyElite Pro died of liver failure. The woman, Sonnette Marras, was a 48 year-old mother with seven children. She only took OxyElite Pro for a few weeks before becoming severely ill. She was the first person to die in an epidemic of liver failures linked to OxyElite Pro.

OxyElite Pro Banned on U.S. Military Bases After Soldier Deaths

The original formula of OxyElite Pro listed DMAA on the ingredient label as “1,3-Dimethylamylamine” or “geranium stem.” Experts generally agree that there is no credible evidence linking DMAA to the geranium plant, and it is actually a synthetic stimulant drug with deadly side effects.

USPLabs, LLC, brought DMAA to the mass-market with OxyElite Pro and a similar product called Jack3D. In 2011, the Department of Defense banned sales of OxyElite Pro on military bases following the deaths of two soldiers who were found to have DMAA in their bloodstream.

One man was a 22 year-old who died of sudden cardiac arrest. The other was a 32 year-old who collapsed during a physical fitness test and died one month later. In August 2013, a military commission determined that DMAA had risks, but did not cause the soldiers’ deaths.

FDA Warning for OxyElite Pro Deaths

In July 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned about the risk of death from OxyElite Pro and other DMAA-containing supplements:

“FDA has received 86 reports of adverse events involving products containing DMAA. These events include psychiatric disorders, heart problems, nervous system disorders, and death.”

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Michael Lee Sparling, a 22 year-old who took Jack3D, a supplement made by USPLabs that is very similar to OxyElite Pro. Sparling died on June 1, 2011, while training with his military unit at Fort Bliss military base in Texas.
