AMP Citrate – Product Information
What is AMP Citrate?
AMP citrate, scientifically referred to as “4-amino-2-methylpentane,” is a psychostimulatory compound with a structure closely resembling DMAA. It is sometimes associated with herbal extracts from “pouchong” or “Chinese white tea.”
AMP citrate has been labeled “the next DMAA” because it shares the same basic structure with DMAA and produces effects that are comparable to those of DMAA.[R]
Two different Chinese groups said that DMBA could be found in nature. One group found small amounts of DMBA in Pouchong tea that had broken down, and the other group found DMBA in the essential oil from the oleoresin of the Plains coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria).
Both groups didn’t use reference standards to prove their results, and other groups couldn’t confirm their results with similar experiments, so there isn’t strong scientific evidence that DMBA happens naturally. [R]

How Does AMP Citrate Work?
In vitro studies with human recombinant enzymes demonstrated that DMBA acts as an inhibitor of the CYP2D6 enzyme. On the other hand, the IC50 value for DMAA amp citrate was greater than 100 µM, which indicates that it is at least 15 times more powerful than DMBA. [R]
DMBA is a stimulant that is sometimes used in dietary supplements and as a pre-workout ingredient. Its mode of action is believed to involve the release of neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine and dopamine, which can lead to increased energy and alertness in the nervous system. [R][R][R]
AMP Citrate Research
Few studies have been conducted on the potential application of AMP Citrate. Below are some of the relevant research purposes of AMP citrate:
AMP Citrate on Estrogen
One of the possible amp citrate benefits was conducted on female rats. DMBA was discovered to mimic some of the effects of the hormone estrogen by acting on the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. The two compounds, Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) levels, which control the menstrual cycle and the production of other hormones including estrogen and testosterone, were shown to be affected by DMBA therapy in the rats.
More scientific research is needed to validate and completely understand the safe intended use for human consumption, but these findings imply that DMBA may have potential endocrine-disrupting effects.[R]
AMP Citrate and Caffeine Stacked
Being known to be a stimulant in pre-workout supplements to increase energy, some users stack AMP Citrate with caffeine for an added boost in energy. To date there is no scientific evidence to support the effectiveness or safety of such a combination, therefore it is suggested that this should be scientifically confirmed first before use.[R]

Amp Citrate Side Effects
Reported symptoms were feelings of rushing, difficulty sitting still, a sense of motion, and increased focus. The relationship between these effects and the use of DMBA was not scientifically proven though[R]
Other related symptoms are rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, and increased risk of heart attack or stroke. [R]
