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.
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.
