Methylhexaneamine is becoming increasingly common, and can very often be found in dietary or nutritional supplements, particular those that are intended to boost energy or increase weight loss.

Athletes, coaches and all individuals in the entourage must be aware that Methylhexaneamine is a specified stimulant that is prohibited in-competition under the current WADA Prohibited List (S6.b – Specified Stimulants). 

The greatest risk associated with Methylhexaneamine is that it may be ingested by an athlete unintentionally. It sometimes appears on labels as “geraniol” or under many other different names.

For example:

  • methylhexaneamine OR methylhexanamine
  • 1,3-dimethylpentylamine OR pentylamine
  • 1,3-dimethylamylamine OR DMAA
  • Geranamine
  • Floradrene
  • 2-hexanamine, 4-methyl- OR 2-hexanamine, 4-methyl- (9CI) OR 4-methyl-2-hexanamine OR 4-
  • methyl-2-hexylamine
  • 4-methylhexan-2-amine OR 2-amino-4-methylhexane
  • Forthan OR Forthane OR 1,3-dimethylamylamineforthane
  • C7H17N

If “geranium” is listed as an ingredient on the label of a supplement, the product may contain synthetic methylhexaneamine.

A few examples of products that currently list some form of methylhexaneamine on the label:

  • Jack3d (www.usplabsdirect.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=115)
  • OxyELITE Pro – USPlabs (www.usplabsdirect.com/OxyELITE-Pro)
  • Hemo-Rage Black Ultra Concentrate – Nutrex (underground.nutrex.com/products/hemo-rageUC.asp)
  • Rezolution – LG Sciences (www.lgsciences.com/Rezolution-Diet-Pill-p/rezolution.htm)

In general, food supplement products are not subject to strict manufacturing controls, even those you may find sold in pharmacies. There is always a risk that food supplement products may contain prohibited substances not identified on the label or substances in different concentrations than stated on the label. WADA does not endorse any food supplement product.
