Here we go. It’s the DMAA story over again. A Herald investigation has found that a supplement from DS (Driven Sports) named Frenzy which is sold OTC contains DMBA; a chemical with structural similarities to the banned DMAA.

The Psychoactive Regulatory Authority is in the process of contacting retailers of Frenzy to advise that DMBA is a psychoactive substance and its sale and supply is prohibited under the Psychoactive Substances Act

Medsafe Manager Compliance Management Derek Fitzgerald said.

Its not strange that DS Frenzy is the supplement in question here. Driven Sports, or more specifically, Matt Cahill, has been highlighted numerous times before in the media, as he has developed several dangerous supplements. But as listed here on Muscles.Zone, Frenzy from DS is far from the only supplement on the market that contains AMP Citrate (DMBA). We are currently seeing new products enter the market on a weekly basis, which contain this exact substance.

Here on Muscles.Zone I have written about the following supplements that contain DMBA:

Redline White Heat – VPX
Noxipro – CTD Sport
Fully Loaded Amplified Energy – LGI Supplements

But the list is much larger than this. From a quick search on Google, here is a list of supplements containing this substance (and there might be lots more):

Contraband – Iron Forged Nutrition
MD2 Meltdown – VPX (Vital Pharmaceuticals Inc.)
Evol – Genomyx LLC
AMP Citrate – Genomyx LLC
Decimate Amplified – Genomyx LLC
Oxyfit Xtreme – planetary nutrition.com
Synetherm – Panetary nutrition.com
AMPitropin – Lecheek Nutrition
AMPilean – Lecheek Nutrition
OxyTHERMPro – deNOVOLABS
OxyphenXR AMP’D – Beta Labs Ltd.
Pre War – Body War
The One 2.0 – BPM Labs
Annihilate – BPM Labs
DNPX – Pro Supps
OptiBurn AMPED – Platinum Labs
Thermoje – Neogenix
LipoRush – BPM Labs
Cannibal Inferno – Chaos and Pain
Adipodex – Nutrex Research
Raze – Kaizen
Prodigy XT – PNI
HyperMax – Performax Labs
Cannibal Ferox – Chaos and Pain (V2.0)
Dedicated Nutrition – Unstoppable (labeled Ampheta-Tea)

Majority of these supplements, list AMP Citrate as an extract from Pouchong tea.

This stuff is now banned in New Zealand, and more countries are likely to follow this trajectory, just like we have seen it before; that’s probably a good thing.

DMBA, allegedly similar to amphetamines in it’s actions, is in my opinion, not justifies for use in any PWO (nor any other OTC supplement for that matter). This stuff is potentially dangerous, not tested on humans, lack scientific studies and is likely to cause withdrawal symptoms with continued use (which you typically would have with a PWO).

I am aware that some will argue that this has been tested on humans (for thousands of years, as a substance in Pouchong tea). The difference is that the amount of DMBA from a glass of Pouchong tea cannot be compared to the levels you will get from one serving of any of the above-listed supplements (a guess as some of these use prob. blends) (if we are to believe the two old Chinese research studies).

There is more to this story than what has been posted here. I plan to followup with an additional AMP Citrate post with more information.

If you need an amphetamine’ish substances in your PWO to get through your workout, you need to reconsider the reasons for going to the gym in the first place. To process a good workout session, or…. to get high?
