In the past for fat loss one of the best fat burners you could take was the Ephedrine Caffeine Stack.
The Ephedrine Caffeine Stack, known as The EC stack, is a combination of Ephedrine & Caffeine taken in certain dosages and timed throughout the day. This effective combination was the secret of bodybuilders that wanted to get ripped in the early 80’s. I can remember using Dymetadrine 25, regular aspirin, and Vivarin caffeine before every workout when it came time to cutting weight and getting shredded. The Ephedrine Caffeine stack had numerous benefits for fat loss and energy such as increased thermogenisis, increased energy, appetite control, enhanced mood, increased Lipolysis.
The Ephedrine Caffeine stack used to be called the ECA Stack which actually contained ephedra, caffeine, and aspirin. However some like the EC stack better because taking aspirin multiple times a day on an empty stomach can cause stomach problems. You can take it with grapefruit juice to increase absorption. The naringin in grapefruit is fat burning powerhouse. Naringin is a flavanone glycoside. It is a major flavonoid in grapefruit and gives it a bitter taste. It is metabolized to the flavanone naringenin in humans. Naringenin occur naturally in citrus fruits. When using the Ephedrine Caffeine Stack there are many ways to combine them and plenty of products to combine them with such as pyruvate, synephrine, bitter orange, and other fat burning ingredients.
Around 2004 Ephedra with ephedrine alkaloids where banned but pure ephedrine was still available so everyone switched to ephedrine, caffeine, and aspirin. Well then the FDA blocked over the counter sales of ephedrine. They also made it illegal to market a weight loss pill that contained ephedrine. So now all of the ECA Stacks were gone. You can still buy ephedrine, caffeine, and aspirin separately and take it how you want but they can not be combined in together in one bottle and described as a weight loss product.
Today products like Ephedrine Plus, Ephed, and Vasopro are sold only as a bronchodilator, to be used for asthma, bronchitis, allergy relief, breathing issues, congestion, mucus relief, and as an expectorant. Before the law made it illegal to sell ephedrine based diet pills a typical cycle of ephedrine and caffeine looked like this.
- 1st Week
12.5 mg Ephedrine & 200mg Caffeine 2 times a day (Before breakfast, early lunch time before 12pm.
- 2nd Week
12.5mg Ephedrine & 200mg Caffeine 3 times a day (Before breakfast, early lunch time and then again before supper) Having taken 3 doses before 3-4pm.
- 3rd Week
25 mg Ephedrine & 200mg Caffeine 3 times a day. Having taken 3 doses before 3-4pm
Typically one who use the higher dose of Ephedrine Caffeine Stack for 6 weeks and then be sure to take at least 6 weeks off from all stimulants for 4-6 weeks. This would have reduced the tolerance effect, so when you need to do the cycle again it is just as effective. Typical user would drop about 25 pounds during this 8 weeks. But that would change depending on your starting weight.
Remember the FDA and the DEA do not recommend using ephedrine for weight loss. Live Lean Today does not sell ephedrine for use other than uses described by the FDA, and DEA. But for me I’m a grown ass man and I like to make my own decisions.
