I used DMAA on a regular basis and I never had a problem with it. I used Jack3D until they took the DMAA out, then I just bought it bulk on Ebay. It's
a central nervous system stimulant.
The main problem with DMAA is that it is incredibly potent and most people don't understand this. A first timer with the pure DMAA should only use an
amount about half the size of the head of a pin like you would find in a sewing kit; the scoop that comes with the bulk stuff is very very tiny.
Jack3D had some other stuff like caffeine and beta-alanine in it, but the container always had a huge warning label on it that said people should only
take half a scoop for the first several weeks. I don't remember for sure, but it may have had a dosing guide according to body weight. Considering
that this girl was a runner I would guess she was very small, probably under 120 lbs. There's no way to know for sure, but she probably slammed a
couple full scoops of Jack3D into her tiny body, which is a seriously bad idea. Honestly for someone that size I would never recommend any type of
stimulant other than caffeine.
To give it perspective, I'm 190 lb male, and I only used 1 scoop of Jack3D before workouts, and until recently I only used 1 microscoop of the pure
DMAA. Not to sound insensitive, but in the correct quantities it is (mostly) safe UNLESS you have preexisting heart or breathing problems. Most cases
where people have problems with it, they've failed to read dosage guidelines and just piled scoop after scoop of Jack3D thinking it was like other
Case in point, I watched a fellow at the gym put 5 scoops of the stuff into his preworkout drink, even after we warned him it was a really bad idea
and that he could die; 30 minutes later he was in an ambulance on his way to the ER with heart palpatations. He lived, but just barely. The only
reason he lived is because the guy was a beast and had a grade A cardiovascular system.
OK yeah, just saw her picture; probably not even 110 lbs. Here's my advice when considering ANY type of supplement: DO YOUR RESEARCH AND READ LABELS.
A 110 lb girl should never have even touched Jack3D, especially after her body was already fatigued. A full scoop of the stuff for a 110 lb girl who
had barely used it before was a horrible idea, AND she had a pre-existing heart condition.
