Overview

Yellow nEuphoria Gen 2 is a dietary supplement that is sold by Controlled Labs, based in Englewood, New Jersey. It is marketed as an all-natural “mild euphoric stimulant” that contains Acacia rigidula, an ingredient in nEuphoria Complex™.

Acacia Rigidula and BMPEA

Extracts of the Acacia rigidula shrub are common in pre-workout supplements. In 2013, the FDA tested 21 supplements with Acacia rigidula on the label and found that nine actually contained β-Methylphenylethylamine (BMPEA). In April 2015, researchers at Harvard found 11 supplements with Acacia rigidula on the label that actually contained BMPEA.

What is the problem?

BMPEA is a synthetic amphetamine-like stimulant drug that has no botanical or herbal source. It was developed in the 1930s as a possible alternative to amphetamines, but was abandoned when studies in cats and dogs found that it raised heart-rate and blood pressure. BMPEA has never been studied in humans.

BMPEA and Hemorrhagic Stroke

In May 2015, the Annals of Internal Medicine published a case report linking BMPEA to a hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in the brain). The victim was a healthy 53 year-old woman who took a supplement containing BMPEA before working out. She went to the hospital after her left arm went numb and was diagnosed with a 2-cm bleed in her brain (hemorrhagic stroke). Click here to read more.

Does the FDA Allow BMPEA in Workout Supplements?

No. In April 2015, the FDA warned that BMPEA is not a vitamin, herb, botanical extract, or other substance that would qualify as an acceptable dietary supplement. The FDA also issued warning letters to five companies selling eight supplements that listed BMPEA (Acacia rigidula) on the label.
