Debate Over DMAA Safety Continues

The debate over the safety of DMAA (dimethylamylamine), an ingredient added to some dietary supplements and marketed “workout boosters,” is heating up as a Harvard researcher is demanding a complete ban of the substance.

"Currently research is being conducted to see how dangerous they are, but we know that there have been reports of death, stroke, and heart failure among people taking DMAA," said Pieter Cohen, internist at Cambridge Health Alliance and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston.

This demand comes only a week after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested safety data on DMAA from 10 drugmakers, according to WebMD Health News.

There is increasing concern that DMAA may cause blood vessels to narrow which can increase blood pressure and lead to side effects such as tightening in the chest and shortness of breath.

The FDA received 42 reports of people experiencing adverse side effects from products containing DMAA. Canada has banned the substance from all dietary supplements, according to WebMD.
