Does OCTANE Energy Drink™ contain 1,-3 dimethylamylamine?No, 1-3 as we call it internally, is not in OCTANE Energy Drink™. After the ban on Ephedrine Alkaloids in the mid 2000s, the supplement industry was looking for a potent alternative, and this is how 1-3 came about. However 1-3 quickly got a reputation for being another version of speed, and had very negative side effects in higher dosages. 1-3 has been banned by the NCAA, and was added to the 2010 World Doping Agency prohibited list in 2009. It is currently on the FDA watch list, with a very likely federal ban in the near future. Octane Energy Drink™ does not contain any banned ingredients.

Note: The only thing in OCTANE Energy Drink™ to watch for is the caffeine of 225mg. However kids today are drinking coffee and other caffeine drinks at an early age. So we would say, its OK as long as they're 16yr or older and under parents supervision. We would recommend only a half serving mixed with full dosage of 12oz of water.

This isn't something we market the product for, as its just a positive side effect of proper nutrition from good supplementation.
