Though DMAA is often promoted as a natural derivative of the geranium plant, there is absolutely no scientific evidence to back this claim.

Most experts now agree that DMAA is a totally synthetic drug.
In 2011, two American soldiers died as a result of heart attacks suffered during exercise, and DMAA was found in both of the deceased soldiers’ bodies. As a result of these deaths, the U.S. Department of Defense removed all products containing DMAA from U.S. military bases.
