Applications:1,5-Dimethylhexylamine is an aliphatic secondary amine which shows leucine aminotransferase inhibition. 1,5-Dimethylhexylamine is used in the preparation of glycosyl β-amino acids with antitubercular activity.
What is DMHA (Octodrine)?
DMHA or Octodrine is a similar stimulant compound to that of DMAA and AMP Citrate.
Mostly a synthetic compound, it offers similar effects to DMAA boosting energy levels, focus, concentration and appetite suppression.It shares a similar structure to the nasal decongestant drug tuaminoheptane, which is banned for use in sport.
DMHA or dimethylhexylamine is a stimulant compound that also goes by some other names such as 2-aminoisoheptane or octodrine. If you’re just talking about 2-aminoisoheptane, there’s actually two forms of the compound including:
You’ll find that the “6” form is more commonly used these days simply due to more research and the fact that it costs less. It is considered by most to be a suitable alternative to previous stimulants such as AMP Citrate, BMPEA and DMAA.
DMHA (Octodrine) Benefits
While very few studies have examined the effects of DMHA or Octodrine, due to its similarity in structure to compounds such as DMAA, DMBA and tuaminoheptane, it is often considered to also exert its influence as a decongestant and bronchodilator. With such structural similarity, there is a very good chance that DMHA shares similar functions such as the support of energy levels, acting as bronchodilators (widening of the bronchi for more air flow), decongestant activity (constricting the blood vessels for decreased swelling and therefore better ability to breathe), enhanced focus and a fairly strong appetite suppressant.
DMHA (Octodrine) Recommended Dose & Ingredient Timing
No official dosing recommendations have been set for DMHA, however based on animal studies and similarities to DMAA, a conservative safe dose would be 1mg/kg of bodyweight up to 160mg. The LD50 (dose required to kill half of all test animals) of DMHA to mice is 59mg/kg. Again, it’s best to stick with conservative doses for now and ideally, more research should be conducted before wider release in supplements. Timing wise, it’s best to take 30-60 minutes prior to a workout to help enhance facets of training, while it can also be taken throughout the day as an appetite suppressant.
