No, it is not banned. DHMA was made in replacement from DMAA. Right now DMAA is in court to see if it will be illegal. DMHA is about 80% the strength of DMAA. It is not illegal yet.

Can DMHA help with weight loss?

Because stimulates are appetite suppressants, DMHA can be used to help support fat loss by taking away the desire to snack and getting away from your diet.

Can DMHA cause erectile dysfunction?

We advise to seek a professional doctor or advisor and see what they say.

Can DMHA cause euphoria?

Yes. When DMHA binds to the trace amine associated receptor 1, it will temporarily prevent the process of dopamine and norepinephrine into the presynaptic nerve. By doing this, dopamine and norepinephrine stay active longer in your body and produces the feelings of euphoria.

There is a very real possibility that DMHA in your system may cause a false positive result. This is because of the structural similarity between DMHA and some other stimulants that ARE on the WADA banned substances list.
