Lurker StimPak - Not Sold In (Military) Stores.

Got this delishious email this morning:

Quote:
1. What is DMAA?
A: The scientific name of DMAA is dimethylamylamine or methylhexanamine. DMAA is an ingredient that is found in a number of dietary supplements used to promote weight loss, bodybuilding and performance enhancement. This compound is a synthetic stimulant. It appears that in some people this compound may be responsible for causing serious changes in blood pressure, headaches, lightheadedness, stroke, depression, elevated or irregular heartbeat, increased urination, dehydration, sweating, tremors, anxiety, and lethal exhaustion. The risk of these serious effects also appears to increase with the use of multiple stimulants, e.g. caffeine, heat and dehydration.
2. Why has DoD decided to remove DMAA-containing dietary supplements from its exchanges, commissaries and from concessionaire stores on DoD installations?
A: When DoD leadership became aware of a recent death and other cases of serious illness in Service members that indicated that dietary supplements containing dimethylamylamine (DMAA) or methylhexanamine may be associated with the adverse effects, a precautionary action was taken to remove these products from our Military Exchanges and Commissaries and to place them on “medical hold” pending further review of the dietary ingredient. Concessionaires on US military installations have also been instructed to remove those products from their shelves pending further review of their safety.
3. What kind of health effects have been linked to DMAA?
A: There is at least one death that indicates that DMAA may have been a contributing factor. The Army and Marine Corps have identified at least three soldiers and two Marines who had taken a DMAA dietary-containing supplement who collapsed after strenuous exercise. DoD’s decision and actions are a precaution that will help protect the health of our Service members and their family members until we can make a further determination about the safety of these products which have been offered for sale on our installations.
4. How long will the product review take to determine whether the DoD may ban these products?
A: At this time we do not know how long it will take to determine whether these products will be released for sale at military installations.
5. How will Service members know not to buy these products outside of DoD installations or use them?
A: Army Public Health Command is actively preparing safety and health information packages which will be part of an active education campaign.
6. Who directed the removal of these products and who is conducting the review?
A: The Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, with the concurrence of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs) directed the removal of all products containing DMAA. The Army has the lead in the product review.

It seems to be an ever-looming possibility that the FDA is bringing down the banhammer on DMAA...I swear I've been hearing it off-and-on for the past 7 or 8 months. Word on the grapevine now is that it's happening in early 2012.

Definitely has a limited legal shelf life (like most supplements that work).

Caffeine +sulb isn't terrible on its own, but DMAA is still the best for focus IMO
