    Of course and drinking alcohol until we are piss drunk! Tobacco and alcohol products have insane taxation and therefore bring a lot of cash to the state treasury. But it is of no surprise, I think everybody knows that money rules.

    DMAA: Only found in select geranium, says new USPLabs-funded study.
    Controversial ingredient DMAA has been detected in geranium from select regions of China, but not all, according to a new study from the University of Memphis and funded by USPLabs.

    The study, published in Analytical Chemistry Insights , claims to explain why DMAA has been reportedly found in certain samples from China, and not in geranium samples from other regions such as India, Mississippi, France, Egypt and New Zealand.

    “Until now, none of the samples analyzed have been identical or reported as from the same region,” wrote the researchers, led by Paul Simone.

    “Thus, regional environmental variations could explain the presence of 1,3-DMAA in the Changzhou S11, Changzhou March 2012, and Changzhou May 2012 samples and the absence of 1,3-DMAA concentrations in Kunming and Guiyang geranium samples reported here, [and samples reported elsewhere].”

    USPLabs funded a study by Intertek AAC Labs published in August that also reported the detection of DMAA has been detected in Chinese geranium. That study was also published in Analytical Chemistry Insights .

    New analysis

    According to the paper, the discrepancies in the literature may be due to regional and environmental considerations, argue the Memphis-based researchers.

    Simone and his co-workers combined an extraction method with high performance liquid chromatography and tandem mass spectrometry to determine 1,3-DMAA and 1,4-dimethylamylamine (1,4-DMAA) in geranium plant samples from the Changzhou, Kunming, and Guiyang regions of China during both winter and summer.

    The researchers reported that 1,3-DMAA and 1,4-DMAA was present in concentrations in the Changzhou geranium plants of China above the reported method detection limit (MDLs).

    “The reported concentrations of 1,3-DMAA ranged from 68 to 496 ng/g and 1,4-DMAA ranged from 13 to 162 ng/g,” they said. “Similarly, 1,3-DMAA and 1,4-DMAA were not detected above the MDL in samples from Guiyang and Kunming regions.

    “To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first reported inter-laboratory analysis confirming the presence of 1,3-DMAA in a geranium plant (specifically Changzhou S11 sample).”

    Multiple labs

    Commenting on the discrepancies with results from other leading laboratories, the researchers suggests that a possible solution would be a “multiple laboratory and blind analysis of identical samples expected to have 1,3-DMAA (such as Changzhou region samples) as well as samples that are not expected to contain 1,3-DMAA.

    “Using this approach, a satisfactory answer for the national regulatory agencies as well as the commercial interests could be provided.”


    all this throws a wrench in the main argument that some authorities have presented as the biggest reason DMAA should not be classified as a nutritional supplement

    there are other arguments as well, but they are secondary to this one

    In Sweden u can be apprehended by police if they suspect you are using anabolic steroids. suspicion can be simply having extraordinary muscle mass. this happened to IFBB bodybuilders that were visiting sweden recently.
    At least one (Tony Freeman) was arrested and forced to submit urine if i recall

    That is correct. Police do not need many reasons for acting on their suspicion without being blamed if they do mistakes. To me it was explained that this is because the police should not hesitate to act if they suspect something. Sweden is in some ways really weird place. However, the nature is nice, so are the girls, therefore do not be afraid to visit. Prison cells in Sweden are very similar to hotel rooms, so do not worry if you end up in jail.

    Hehehe, that would be something. But no, I am happy with what I am doing. You can google it up how “luxury” Swedish prisons are.

    Yes, police do profiling in Sweden as well. However, profiling takes time, and sometimes police do not have time. In these cases, police have the right to act, if they think something is fishy. I know it is weird, but it is how it works here. Also to be clear, I am not a police, I am just a Ph.D. student in a technical field.

    Also so we do not deviate from this thread, let me ask you Patrick. Do you have any idea what are the consequences if a substance have ability of binding to Estrogen Receptor alpha? I know it is probably dose dependent, but how bad can it be?

    You are misunderstanding the meaning of the word profiling as I meant it. Profiling in the context I am talking about means selectively pursuing a suspect based on characteristics such as race or religion or style of clothes they wear etc. Examples would be preferentially pulling a muslim aside at an airport for secondary screening or pulling a hispanic guy in a car over and asking for his identification because you suspect he may be illegal.

    ERalpha I believe is the predominant subtype in the hypothalamus. Therefore, a binder should suppress the HPTA

    Ok, I understand now. Well here in Sweden our leaders like to “educate” us normal mortals in various “negative” activities (do not know how exactly call it). Therefore, it is very common practice to do something calls zero tolerance weeks. One week they pick for example driving under influence of alcohol. This means that the whole week, children in schools are “educated” how dangerous it is. Meanwhile police in the same week do extra alcohol controls on the roads. I have seen zero tolerance weeks on violence, racism, narcotics and also doping. Every time there is such a campaign the police are reinforcing it with targeted activities.

    Sweden is on other hand too much of humanistic, meaning, for example the convicts have quit a lot of rights. Therefore I am not surprised to read in newspaper that convicted pedophiles ware sending each other pictures of children over the mobile phones, since in Sweden, they are allowed to keep them.

    I do not want to make this thread to much of a political debate. So to make some sort of a conclusion the two biggest negative thinks (as I see them) are: 1 the state is trying to over protect its citizens and 2 on another hand they try to preserve the humanistic rights for everybody. And this in the end creates such weird situations.

    Yes, it is a mess. However, there are also many good things, but like I said, we should not make this tread into a political debating. These thinks are better to talk about person to person in a pub then on an internet forum.

    Binding to the receptor does not imply activation. It could be an inverse agonist, antagonist, or bind with such low affinity as to afford physiological insignificance.

    good point

  18. So we can say, if the substance is binding to ERalpha as agonist it will extra stimulate HPTA and in case of an antagonist then it will suppress HPTA?

    I suppose, unless there are other aspects of the compound that interfere with the HPTA

    Ok, interesting. However, purely theoretically, it could give problems in case the over/under stimulation would deviate outside the usual limits?

    A small clarification about the incident with convicted pedophiles. I meant that they could keep the mobile phones during serving their sentence. Not that they were able to keep the pictures of which they have been convicted for, as one could understand from my previously written text. Sweden have its weird moments, but not that severely creepy.

  21. The difference between a four star prison and a four star hotel is I can leave the latter at will the former not so much. I think I will not be visiting.

    The difference can also be seen as, full accommodation in four star prison is paid for you with taxation money (free education included), while accommodation in four star hotel cost you $$$. Although, do not exactly know how it works with people from outside of Sweden. Most probable is the deportation, unless you claim you will be killed if deported.

    Higenamine has absolutely no access to the CNS (if it did, it would be quite neurotoxic) so it is a moot point.

    Yes, I found a rat study that higenamine is mostly metabolized through Catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) to coclaurine and isococlaurine. As I understand it also humans have COMT mechanism so it could be argued that even we do produce such metabolites? I also did prediction on coclaurine which show somewhat higher probability then higenamine that it is a week ERalpha binder. Prediction shows a good chance of coclaurine to cross BBB.

    EDIT: Predictions are done in ACD/I-lab.

    Coclaurine is the main metabolite via COMT, and it is a peripheral anti-stimulant (1). It won't make it pass the human BBB either. The first point is important because higenamine, which is indeed stimulatory to adrenergic receptors, has an incredibly short half-life and its main metabolite is distinctly anti-stimulatory.
