Why is AMP Citrate Being Banned?


So why is AMP Citrate Being Banned?

An ingredient of many names is much loved…

  • AMP Citrate
  • 1,3 Dimethylbutylamine
  • DMBA
  • Pouchong Tea Extract
  • 4-Amino-2-Methylpentane Citrate

The hottest ingredient currently in the supplement market AMP Citrate has served as a worthy replacement for 1,3 Dimethylamylamine (DMAA) that made the great products of old times like the original Jack3d and MesoMorph.

However AMP Citrate will soon be very hard to come by because of laws banning the manufacturing of the ingredient. As of right now the specific pre-workout and fat burner products containing AMP Citrate are technically not banned but they might as well be. All manufactured supplies available are now limited and believe me, they won’t last long. This ban will affect popular products like The One 2.0, LipoRush, Frenzy, Unstoppable and OutRage.

What exactly is it?

AMP Citrate is a stimulant ingredient which can be chemically synthesised or extracted naturally from Pouchong tea. As you can see it bears a striking similarity to 1,3 Dimethylamylamine which is why it has been known by many in the industry as “the next DMAA”. Its chemical similarity to DMAA is also why AMP Citrate manufacturing has been banned.

Side Effects of AMP Citrate?

AMP Citrate is a stimulant ingredient and as such the potential negative side effects are jitteriness, increased heart rate, light headedness and energy crash.

AMP Citrate is a relatively new ingredient and there have been few studies assessing the safety of the compound. Because of this it is recommended that users exercise caution by not exceeding recommended dosages and do not use in conjunction with other stimulant products.

The Benefits of AMP Citrate

Because of its similarities to DMAA its usage and benefits in supplementation have also been very similar. AMP Citrate impacts the central nervous system like caffeine but it is actually noticeably stronger. When using it before training you will notice:

  • Increased Focus
  • Concentration
  • Increased Energy Levels

Unlike high doses of caffeine, AMP Citrate is typically associated with a more sustained release of energy with less of a crash.

AMP Citrate supplements have enjoyed a good run as some of the best-selling supplements in the market. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end as products containing this ingredient are now not expected to be available much further into the future.
