RoxyLean Lawsuit

RoxyLean Lawsuit

The original formula of BPI Sports fat-burning supplement RoxyLean originally contained an illegal stimulant drug called 1,3-dimethylamine, also known as DMAA. Unfortunately, this drug has been linked to severe, life-threatening cardiovascular side effects — heart attack, stroke, and death.

What is RoxyLean?

RoxyLean ECA is a thermogenic fat-burning supplement manufactured by BPI Sports in Florida. In the bodybuilding world, “ECA” stands for “Ephedrine-Caffeine-Aspirin.” After ephedrine was banned, products like RoxyLean were formulated with another stimulant called 1,3-dimethylamine (DMAA). After the FDA declared DMAA illegal in 2013, RoxyLean was re-formulated with another proprietary blend of ingredients.

Ingredients in RoxyLean

Active ingredients in re-formulated RoxyLean:

  • Thiamin (Vitamin B1, As Thiamin Disulfide)
  • Niacin (As Nicotinic Acid)
  • Caffeine (as caffeine anhydrous)
  • Lemon (Citrus limon) (whole)
  • Adhatoda (Adhatoda vasica) (leaf)
  • Yohimbe (Pausinystalia yohimbe) (bark)
  • Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) (root)
  • White willow [(Salix alba) as Salicin, (root)]
  • Chinese skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) (root))
  • Rauwolfia (Rauwolfia serpentina) (root/rhizome)

Inactive RoxyLean ingredients: Capsicum Annum, Magnesium Stearate, Gelatin, FD&C Blue #1, Red #3, Red #40, Yellow # 6 & Titanium Dioxide.

RoxyLean Class Action Lawsuit

BPI sports was hit with a class action lawsuit in November 2011, according to Courthouse News. The plaintiffs, Camden Brady and Clint Eskenski, allege that BPI Sports failed to warn that RoxyLean, Rx6, and 1.M.R supplements contain DMAA, “a dangerous amphetamine-like ingredient that poses a serious health risk and has potentially life-threatening side effects.” They also allege that BPI did not warn that DMAA is banned by several sports organizations, or that it can cause false-positives for methamphetamine on drug tests.

What is the problem with DMAA?

DMAA is a synthetic stimulant drug with serious cardiovascular side effects and unknown long-term risks. In 2011, the deaths of several soldiers prompted the Department of Defense (DOD) to ban DMAA and RoxyLean on military bases. After a two-year investigation, the DOD concluded that DMAA did not cause the soldiers’ deaths, but it could have serious side effects.

According to warning from the FDA, there have been at least 86 reports of adverse events, including death. In 2012, the FDA cracked down on DMAA by sending warning letters to 11 manufacturers. BPI Sports did not receive a warning letter, but they still re-formulated RoxyLean without DMAA.
