DMAA Lawsuit Florida April 2012

In DMAA lawsuit Florida on April 21, 2012 at 8:45 pm
Bodybuilding and dietary supplement maker BPI Sports has been hit with a class action lawsuit alleging its most popular supplements, “1.M.R.,” “RoxyLean” and “Rx6,” contain a dangerous stimulant that could kill you.

 

The BPI Sports class action lawsuit says the products are marketed for use as bodybuilding and weight-loss supplements, “However, the products contain a dangerous amphetamine-like ingredient that poses a serious health risk and has potentially life-threatening side effects.”
The ingredient, which is supposedly derived from the oil of the geranium plant, is known by many names, including “1,3 Dimethylamylamine” or DMAA.
According to the BPI supplement class action lawsuit, DMAA is a dangerous stimulant that has been banned by several athletic organizations, including Major League Baseball, and is completely illegal to sell in certain countries because it can fatally raise the heart rate and blood pressure of users.
DMAA was patented by Eli Lilly & Company in 1944 and later marketed under the trademark “Forthane” for use as a nasal decongestant and for treating excessive growth of oral tissue. Recently, however, DMAA has gained popularity with young people as a designer drug.
