What is BMPEA?
BMPEA is an amphetamine-like stimulant drug that was first developed in the 1930s. It has never been tested in humans, but it was shown to increase blood pressure and heart-rate in dogs and cats. It is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency and it is not allowed in dietary supplements.
BMPEA Linked to Hemorrhagic Stroke

The healthy 53 year-old woman took Jacked Power, made by MM Sports. Analysis of the supplement detected 290-mg of BMPEA per dose in addition to 300-mg of caffeine.
