When we were told AdrenaCLEN V2 was going to have the new DMHA i was as excited like a kid on Christmas but i often get asked what is DMHA? commonly known as Octodrine, DMHA is similar to the same molecular structure of the famous yet now illegal stimulants AMP Citrate (DMBA) and DMAA.
DMHA scientifically named Dimethylhexylamine or 2-aminoisoheptane, is a psychoactive central nervous system stimulant and is found structurally in 2 forms which is:
- 2-amino-6-methylheptane a synthetic type
- 2-amino-5-methylheptane a naturally occurring type
The synthetic version of DMHA (2-amino-6-methylheptane) is much cheaper to manufacture than the natural type, although the natural type is more expensive is thought to be more potent. The natural type of DMHA (2-amino-5-methylheptane) can be found in Juglans Regia Extract (Walnut Bark), Aconitum Kusnezoffii Extract, and also Kigela Africana Extract.
What are the benefits of DMHA?
While DMHA is fairly new and there are very minimal studies that have examined DMHA (Octodrine) but due to its similar structure of DMAA and DMBA benefits can include enhanced energy levels, enhanced cognitive function, decreasing appetite and improving bronchodilation.
There has also been studies to show that DMHA can increase levels of dopamine and noradrenaline; which are the 2 " feel good " hormones which can allow you to perform in stressful conditions.
When to take DMHA and What is the recommended dosage?
For best performance benefits it is recommended to take DMHA 15-30mintues prior to a workout. After consumption and DMHA has taken full effect into the blood stream you will notice a higher level of energy, mental focus and a reduction in appetite.
It is said that DMHA is best consumed at 100mg although majority of new products on the market contain 125mg.
Final thoughts on DMHA
At this current time we are loving the products that are containing DMHA such as Stealth Sports AdrenaCLEN V2 and Giant Rush but like all good stimulants i only give it a matter of time until it will join the rest of its family on the illegal stimulant list but until then i will enjoy every single scoop.
