No, it is not banned. DMHA was made in replacement of DMAA. Right now, DMAA is illegal. DMHA is about 80% of the strength of DMAA.

Can DMHA Help With Weight Loss?

Since stimulants are appetite suppressants, DMHA can be used to help support fat loss by taking away the desire to snack and get off track 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 with 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.

Does DMHA Make You Crash?

DMHA is a stimulant, so there's always a risk of suffering from jitters or energy crashes. These side effects will be higher when DMHA is added into pre-workouts and other supplement made with stimulants.

How Does DMHA Work? 

DMHA is a stimulant and it is structurally similar to two familiar compounds:

1,3 Dimethylamylamine (DMAA)


DMHA should have a similar half life to DMAA and Amphetamine because of its methyl group on alpha carbon. DMHA should act as a monoamine releasing agent of catecholamines which include dopamine and norepinephrine. DMHA then binds to a trace amine receptor 1. This will temporarily prevent the re-uptake of dopamine and norepinephrine into the presynaptic nerve. Doing this, the catecholamines will be active longer in your body.

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 banned substances list.
