What’s the latest on Jack3d since FDA banned DMAA as a dietary supplement ingredient?

OPSS Answer

    Following the FDA announcement in April 2013 about DMAA, dietary supplements containing the ingredient—including the original Jack3d product—can no longer be sold in the U.S. For more information, visit the OPSS FAQ about DMAA on HPRC’s website, as well as HPRC’s list of Dietary Supplement Products Containing DMAA. According to an FDA announcement in July 2013, USPLabs destroyed its remaining stock of the original Jack3d (as well as DMAA-containing OxyElite Pro). However, the original version of Jack3d may still be available from some online retail outlets. Be sure to check the label for ingredients, as it is now considered illegal to sell the version containing DMAA. Note: Jack3d should not be confused with Jack3d Micro or Jack3d Advanced Formula (both from the same manufacturer), which do not list DMAA as an ingredient. As of early February 2014, the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (NMCD) has given both a rating of “2”—their second-lowest rating, which indicates serious concerns about the safety and/or effectiveness of these products. Visit NMCD for possible changes to formulas and ratings since then.
