Army Bans DMAA Supplement

The Department of Defense has put a ban on all products containing DMAA. These products, formerly sold on-base at GNC stores, were pulled off shelves at the beginning of this year. Servicemembers are prohibited from using the supplements pending further testing on their health effects. DMAA is found in many of the popular energy and weight loss supplements such as Jack3d or OxyElite Pro. These pre-workout and thermogenic supplements increase metabolism, heart rate, blood pressure and the body's heat production. Sudden death cases have been reported involving DMAA users.
