Synthetic Amphetamine, Less Protein and More Sugar Than Claimed Found in Workout Supplements

On August 7, 2015, the FDA issued a warning letter to New Dawn Nutrition, Inc. following a facility inspection which found the workout supplements NDN Ares Battle Ready Pre Workout (Warpath Watermelon) and NON Ares Black (Orange Overdose) list a synthetic, amphetamine-like compound called 1,3-dimethylbutylamine (DMBA) on product labels. 

DMBA is an analogue of the pharmaceutical stimulant, 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA), which is banned by the FDA. DMBA may also be listed on labels as 1,3-Dimethylbutylamine, 2-amino-4-methylpentane, AMP citrate, AMP, or 4-methyl-2-pentanamine .

In addition, the New Dawn's NON FA Prime Super Protein products in Blueberry Pie, Cake Batter, and Vanilla Milkshake flavors were found to be misbranded because they contain less protein, and more sugar than listed on the labels.The labels also failed to provide information required by federal regulations.
