First let’s familiarize with this product and then lets talk about Jack3d side effects.
Jack3d showed on the market in 2010 and quickly became as the most popular pre-workout supplement. Athletes loved it’s effects of energy, focus, pump, fat loss and euphoria. This product consists of proprietary blend of stimulants such as: Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate, Creatine Monohydrate, Beta Alanine, Caffeine, Schizandrol A, 1.3 dimethylhexanamine or also called DMAA, Methylhexanamine, Geranamine, Geranium oil and ‘Cranesbill’.
Every one of those has its side effects and you only could wonder what happens when you take a mix of them. However the main ingredient which is most disturbing is DMAA. It has been known to cause hyperthermia, seizures, irregular heartbeat, stroke, heart attack, kidney damage or kidney failure, liver damage or liver failure, psychiatric side effects, increased blood pressure. And lesser Jack3d side effects like:
A 22 years old man from Sweden suffered a heart attack while working out in a gym, his life was saved, but doctors diagnosed overdose of DMAA. Two US soldiers deaths by heart attack is also linked to DMAA supplements. A mine worker in Australia using DMAA to combat fatigue found dead. The Therapeutic Goods Administration announced that substance DMAA, caused a bleeding in brain after miner mixed it with beer.
Of course on a Jack3d label you can find a long list of warnings and this is just some of them. Not to use if you have any medical conditions such as:
High or low blood pressure.
Problems with heart.
Not to mix with alcohol and other caffeine products. And of course also a warning not to use more than 5 out of 7 consecutive days and not more than 3 scoops in 24 hour period. So generally you have to be over all healthy person to even consider using this product if you don’t want to get the Jack3d side effects.
But only warnings which most even don’t read didn’t scare people from using Jack3d and the lack of research of the DMAA forced inevitable. In April 27, 2012 The U.S. Food and Drug Administration halted the sales of DMAA products for lack of safety evidence. Soon other countries followed banning such products from the market to protect public safety. So further Jack3d and other DMAA supplements future remains unknown.
Also if you are serious athlete you should think twice before using Jack3d, because its ingredient DMAA has been banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency and athletes using it have been suspended.
Because it is not so long since banned it is still possible to buy it on the black market. But remember that taking this product at your own risk.
