The United States Army is investigating DMAA dietary supplements – Jack3d and OxyELITE Pro – after two U.S. soldiers died from heart attacks during fitness exercises. The Defense Department removed these products and any products containing the same active ingredient – DMAA – from all military bases. It is unclear at this point what action the FDA will take.
The active ingredient DMAA (dimethylamylamine) is promoted to increase workout energy and efficiency. However, DMAA, found naturally in Asian geraniums, is a dangerous additive. Medical literature from the 1950s discovered the toxicity of DMAA.
DMAA has been banned by numerous sports organizations, including the international body that regulates Olympic athletes and several professional sports.
Already, one lawsuit has been filed against BPISports. A class action claims Florida-based BPI Sports’ bodybuilding and dietary supplements “contain a dangerous amphetamine-like ingredient that poses a serious health risk and has potentially life-threatening side effects.”
BPI’s products include ’1.M.R’ powder and tablets, ‘RoxyLean ECA’ and ‘Rx6.’ These products are purported dietary supplements which are marketed for use as bodybuilding and weight loss supplements. 1.M.R is marketed as a pre-workout bodybuilding supplement. RoxyLean and Rx6 are marketed as ‘fat burning’ weight loss supplements.
The Most Serious Jack3d or OxyELITE Pro Side Effects Include:
Heart Attack
Cardiac Arrest
Heat Stroke
Kidney Failure
Liver Failure
Loss of consciousness
Heart palpitations
