Performance Enhancing Ingredient, DMAA, Not Really from Geraniums, Putting Its Use in Supplements in Doubt
On July 29, 2011, the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) announced a new requirement that products containing the sports performance enhancing compound DMAA (also known as 1,3-dimethlypentlyamine, 1,3 dimethylamylamine, methylhexanamine, or MHA), not be labeled as geranium oil or any part of the geranium plant. AHPA found the evidence of DMAA coming from geranium to be inconclusive.
