Two Sales At EphedraWarehouse

EphedraWarehouse is currently offering two sales at the same time: the first one is a new product and the second, well, maybe the most famous fat burner in the USA πŸ˜‰

Let’s start with the new one.

First Sale, ECA Elite

This product is made by Hard Rock Supplements and I find it interesting because it is a pre-mixed EC stack. So you don’t have to worry about the exact dosage of ephedrine and caffeine, and most importantly you reduce the risk of error and side effects.
Another good point is that Hard Rock Supplements has added vitamins in it and this cannot hurt πŸ˜‰
The main ingredient is their proprietary blend, based on ephedra, phenylthylamine HCL, synephrine HCL and yohimbe extract. As you can guess, all the interest and fat results will depend on this proprietary blend. Especially ephedra: I hope that they included the right alkaloids!

Here is the exact composition:

  • Niacinamide – 20 mg
  • Folic Acid – 200 mg
  • Vitamin B6 – 2 mg
  • Vitamin B5 – 10 mg
  • Chromium – 100 mg
  • Proprietary ECA Elite Blend: Caffeine Anhydrous, Glucuronolactone, Phenylthylamine HCL, Yohimbe Bark Extract Yohimbe 8%, Picamilon Sodium Salt, Synephrine HCL, Ephedra Extract, White Willow Bark, Nettle Root extract is 4:1, Xantinol Nicotinate – 726 mg

With such combination you have all you need for the synergistic effects that you expect from an EC Stack:

  • Appetite reduction
  • Energy boost
  • Increased metabolic rate and quicker lipolysis

Add a smart diet and exercising plan to that and even your stubborn fat will melt soon πŸ˜‰

The good news is that EphedraWarehouse is currently promoting this pre-mixed EC stack to push it in the market and to give it a better chance to be tested: they are selling it at less than half price.

Weight Loss, My Ratchet Effect

Do you know the best part of having such blog? It’s when you get a feedback from one of your readers who tells you that he or she managed to lose weight thanks to our advice, with the support of ephedrine of course. Feels like improving your karma πŸ™‚
To honest, recently I felt a bit jealous also…
How come? Let me tell you as I have more time today – hopefully you too πŸ™‚

The old members here know what I’ve been through in terms of weight loss: 1 kg per year during twenty years, one day you have to pay. They know how I managed to lose weight with the great support of ephedrine and how hard it has been. Never again, that’s what I said for years. Well, I might have to do it again πŸ™

So What Happened?

I'm not suoerstitiousI won’t go into too much details but you know these “good luck/bad luck” cycles? In my recent case it has been bad luck πŸ™
Too much work, a lot of stress, many business trips, fast food, long evenings in hotel bars drinking beers and cocktails with colleagues…
Less time for exercising because so tired when back home that, well, it was just too much, I always preferred to relax and spend time with my family.
And then bad luck, an old condition that I had no time to treat correctly became less and less bearable. Not very smart when your wife is a doctor as most of your friends and when our parties look like an episode of Grey’s Anatomy πŸ˜‰ Anyway, the shoemaker’s son always goes barefoot…

I didn’t see it coming and one day the chronic pain went wild and I was not even able to get out of the bed. So I had no other choice than obeying my wife and going with her to the hospital, what I didn’t plan is that I had to stay there for surgery…
I skip the details but believe me, when you see all the misery in hospitals, you truly understand what they tell you regularly but you don’t really care unless it hits you: Health is the most precious thing in your life.
It took me a while to recover and I am fine now πŸ™‚ Let’s come back to the main topic, weight loss.

Where Am I Now

Weight Loss Ratchet EffectAs you can guess I was not able to run a lot during the next weeks after surgery πŸ˜‰
From a nutrition point of view, the food they give you in a hospital is close to what you get in jail I suppose πŸ˜‰ so I lost a bit of weight there.
Then back home I took it again twice! That’s the weird part I’d like to share with you today.
It is so strange: when you are focused on weight loss as I have been for years, you might think that you know your body quite well, how you react to changes, why you lose or gain weight, taking into account all factors that I describe in this blog. That’s why I have not been surprised by these extra pounds. Back home I have indulged some cravings and without exercising I knew I was going to supersize some adipocytes πŸ˜‰
What I did not expect was the next step: I was sure to lose it all only by starting again my normal lifestyle (long stressful working days and jogging). Usually I lose fast, after a few weeks I am back to my ideal weight. Well, for the first time, it didn’t happen! No way: I don’t know if something changed in my basal metabolism but getting back to normal nutrition and usual exercising was not enough to lose these extra pounds. As if there was a kind of ratchet effect in terms of weight loss: minor changes in both directions are reversible until you reach the next level where you get stuck, reverting to the previous level seems impossible. So here I am, frustrated and a bit jealous.
Of course I discussed it with the team but they didn’t help much, preferring to make fun of me: “overreacting”, “effect of age”, “bias”, “do what you advise other people to do!”
OK, I’ll do that.

Action Plan!

Ractchet Effet, The Action PlanSo back to the basics:

  • I would like to understand what explains this change but I don’t want to become obsessed with weight loss.
  • Clearly I have to lose fat and to build muscle again but I don’t want to set quantitative goals — it doesn’t work, I know from experience that goal setting should be focused on efforts, not results.
  • I decided to set back to the healthier lifestyle I can live with (same idea, I don’t want to become obsessed, I have no deadline such as wedding in 2 weeks πŸ˜‰ Exceptions are tolerated.
  • When you do efforts you want to see quick results. Tell that to your fat… I have now accepted the frustration of the absence of quick results πŸ˜‰ I have time.
  • But reasonable time only, I don’t want to stabilize at this weight level too long or my fat cells will think they won the war πŸ˜‰
  • That’s why I decided to take the Team’s word: “do what you advise other people to do”. OK, I will start a short cycle of EC stack πŸ™‚

It’s been a while since the last one, now doubt it will give me a good boost. I will try to identify between all benefits of ephedrine for weight loss (increased metabolism, energy, appetite reduction etc…) which one helps more in my case. And choosing ephedrine from a good online shop shouldn’t be a problem πŸ˜‰

That’s it for now. Be sure I’ll keep you informed πŸ™‚

Taking EC Stack Weight Loss to the Highest Level

In our previous post, we have seen that ephedrine and caffeine have synergistic weight loss effects that are highly superior to those obtained by taking only one of the two alkaloids. We finished our article by a kind of teasing sentence, saying that there were other synergies that would take your fat burning results to a much higher level.
Well, it’s time to reveal it now πŸ˜‰

Weight Loss Synergy of EC stack and Cardio Training

Synergy between EC stack and Cardio TrainingThe fat burn results that we mentioned in the previous article were obtained by the intake of ephedrine and caffeine, without special physical activity during the medical studies. They are already better that those of coffee alone and ephedrine alone, but a bit of motivation can dramatically boost your weight loss program: as explained in a previous post, cardiovascular training during an EC stack will raise your heart rate and thermogenesis and consequently the physiological process of destocking fat called lipolysis will start earlier and last longer, even hours after the end of your physical activity. We insist of the necessity of a low intensity training, always below 70% of your maximum heart rate: first for safety reasons (ephedrine already stress your heart rate, thus no need to add to that) and second, because raising the pace will force your body to burn glycogen instead of fat, which is not what you want. Caffeine and ephedrine join their action to increase your energy level which will allow you to target 3 cardio sessions of 45 minutes per week ideally, without losing too much of your lean muscle mass.
Just as ephedrine and caffeine had synergistic effects, this new achievement in your weight loss program is also based on synergy between the EC stack and your cardio training: ephedrine will provide the needed energy boost that will allow you to run or bike during the cardio sessions without being exhausted. From experience we know that this is the main reason why people can’t stand such physical activity, it’s just too much demanding for them so they stop, usually by finding fake excuses πŸ˜‰ With the energy bonus that you get from ephedrine you will find the inner strength and willpower to keep the rhythm of your sessions until you see results, thus generating a reward to all the granted efforts and finally entering a virtuous circle.

Best Weight Loss: EC Stack plus Cardio Training plus Diet

Synergy between EC stack and DietThis is the ultimate weight loss program that bodybuilders are using since years to achieve less than 7% body fat during their cutting sessions, usually before a competition.
Again, this is based on synergy: the challenge here is to maintain your physical activity with the same energy expenditure but without starving, despite a lower calorie intake. This is achieved thanks to the appetite reduction induced by ephedrine [1]. Physiologically, dopamine plays a big role in the regulation of appetite and ephedrine acts as an indirect dopamine agonist by increasing its release from the cytoplasmic pool (the cytoplasm is the jelly-like substance consisting of basically everything in the cell except the nucleus and where metabolic pathways occur). As for the synergy between ephedrine and cardio training due to the energy boost, we know from experience that this synergy between ephedrine and diet due to appetite suppression can make the difference between success and failure.

So here is the program that we have set up and fine-tuned in the long runΒ  – please note that the word “run” has not been chosen by accident πŸ˜‰

  1. Cardio training alone during 4 weeks, starting slow and increasing progressively
  2. Ephedrine alone for 8 weeks along with a smart diet
  3. Two weeks break
  4. Cardio training plus EC stack for 8 weeks
  5. Two weeks break again
  6. Grand Final with High Intensity Interval Training for 2 weeks, without ephedrine

Cardio Training will boost the weight loss effects of an EC StackThis strict cycling period is impressive and will keep you busy during 6 months, but remember: “Time doesn’t respect what has been built without him“. And we don’t know any better way to lose weight. Quick advice: take a picture of yourself before and after this cutting program, you will see two different persons πŸ˜‰ Then the end of the journey will just the beginning of a harder one. Who said it would be easy? πŸ˜‰ The challenge is to keep these pounds off your hips or belly, as your starving adipocytes would be so happy to restock within days all the fat that took you months to lose. Only a change of lifestyle with the right balance between nutrition and exercising will put you on the safe side.

Conclusion

We have started this article series with one question: is coffee good for your health and can it help losing weight?
We have analyzed tens of medical studies that show that a moderate coffee consumption has many health benefits which are partially due to caffeine but not only, other antioxidants components play also a positive role. Hence our recommendation to prefer coffee over decaffeinated coffee, unless you have personal reasons to do this choice. In other words, you should not be afraid to drink coffee only because you have been told that it was risky for your health, please refer to our in-depth analysis in case of any doubt.
But if your primary interest in caffeine is weight loss, you will probably be disappointed. Remember our image of a “bell curve” to have a representation of the balance between risks and benefits of coffee: after 4 to 5 cups of Joe per day, the risks for your health (sleep disorder for instance) will exceed the potential positive effects. As a result, you will not solve an overweight problem by drinking too much coffee, you will instead put your health in danger. Then we have seen that you still had 3 better ways to explore: first by adding ephedrine to caffeine (the famous EC stack), then by boosting your results with cardio training sessions and finally by following a light but smart diet: at this ultimate level, you will be using the full range of synergistic effects triggered by ephedrine and caffeine, these two amazing alkaloids.

Last words

Taking ephedrine in an EC stack is a serious decision that should be envisaged only under strict conditions:

Weight Loss With Caffeine or Ephedrine Alone, Compared to an EC Stack

Compared weight loss effects of caffeine, ephedrine and EC stackIf you search the web about the weight loss properties of caffeine, you will be amazed by the number of contradictory results. We will not detail the arguments of both sides, as many are outdated information or lack serious support of medical research. Some articles even publish wrong assessments such as: “The effect of caffeine on blood sugar is unhealthy and the type of problem that leads to insulin resistance – a precursor to type 2 diabetes“. This is proved wrong by the current medical research, as you can see in our in-depth analysis here, or directly through the abstract of the related studies [1] [2] [3].

Weight loss effects of coffee alone

Fascinating Alkaloids, CaffeineFortunately there are also reliable medical sources of information online, including us πŸ˜‰ and usually their position regarding the fat burning effect of coffee alone is more balanced:

  • Coffee alone can help losing fat moderately, as found in this randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind parallel clinical trial: “High caffeine intake was associated with weight loss through thermogenesis and fat oxidation and with suppressed leptin in women. In habitual low caffeine consumers, the green tea-caffeine mixture improved WM, partly through thermogenesis and fat oxidation[4]. By the way we take this opportunity to remind you that not all medical studies are equal, here we refer to a RCT study that belongs to the interventional type as opposed to observational studies, as explained graphically in our previous post about decaffeinated coffee. In a nutshell: interventional studies give evidence when observational studies measure the probability of risk factors.
  • When we speak about the benefits of coffee for weight loss, we mean black coffee only, not these special drinks with cream or syrups which can easily exceed the average calorie intake of a lunch or dinner.
  • There has been a buzz about green coffee beans which may help losing weight at higher dosage (700 to 1,050 mg of extract), as found in a recent study presented in March 2012 at the National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society. This findings are interesting but a bit out of our topic (coffee, caffeine and ephedrine) and for sure they deserve further research by the medical community.
  • The current consensus is that overweight people should not rely on coffee alone to lose weight: a moderate consumption will bring many health benefits, but when it comes to cut fat permanently, a few cups of coffee will not do the trick alone, there are other ways that are much more effective to lose weight and keep it off permanently.

Weight loss effects of ephedrine alone

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com Prefers Kaizen Ephedrine HCLThe fat burning properties of ephedrine are well-known, in case you need a refresher you can have a look at our description here. In two words, ephedrine stimulates the central nervous system by increasing the activity of noradrenaline on adrenergic receptors and the result is a kind of adrenaline rush. The main physiological consequences are an increase of your BMR (basal metabolic rate), blood pressure, thermogenesis, fat oxidation, energy level and athletic performance, and a reduced appetite.

How many pounds can you shred within a reasonable period of time? It depends on individual factors, as genes play a big role in the way your body stores and burns fat, but a good indication is given by this official meta-analysis [5] of the “efficacy and safety of ephedra and ephedrine alkaloids for weight loss” that we will just quote here: “Ephedrine was associated with a statistically significant weight loss of 1.3 pounds/month more than was associated with placebo for up to 4 months of use“.

This official meta-analysis had raised many comments by the scientific community, due to the controversy around the FDA ban at this time. For instance the selection of 20 trials out of 44 controlled trials seemed to be not really in favor of ephedrine. We discussed this point several times with friends and our conclusion is that at least these studies are valid, they are RCTs with unquestionable evidence so we take them as they are: proven facts. Thus our conclusion is that ephedrine alone has modest weight loss results. In the next section we will see that it is due to a reaction of your body that limits the effects of ephedrine and that there is a way to circumvent this limit factor.

Weight loss effects of ephedrine and caffeine (EC stack)

This circumventing way of cutting pounds more effectively is to combine caffeine with ephedrine, the so-called EC stack. Before going any further, we would like to remind you that ephedrine has been banned in the USA and some other countries for the usage as dietary supplement: it is still legal to buy ephedrine under a certain limit per month because it is one of the most effective medications for cold, flu, allergy and asthma, but companies are not allowed to promote ephedrine for weight loss.

Legality of ephedrine in Canada The legality in Canada is less restrictive, for instance you can legally buy ephedrine with a limit of 8 milligrams per tab, but it is not permitted to sell EC stacks in one package, you have to purchase ephedrine and caffeine separately. By the way, if you decide to get an EC stack, our strong recommendation is to buy Kaizen Ephedrine HCL 8 mg which is the best for us.

But enough digression: you have all details about the legal aspects of ephedrine in our dedicated blog category. Here we want to focus on the weight loss that can be achieved with an EC stack. Based on medical evidence, ephedrine will have better results than caffeine, but will be less effective alone than associated to caffeine in an EC stack: in fact these two alkaloids will develop a synergy together.

Ephedrine's effect on neurotransmitters Basically, caffeine acts as an inhibitor of adenosine, which is an antagonist of norepiphedrine, which is the chemical agent that triggers the physiological effects of ephedrine. It sounds a bit weird, but it is easy to get it when said in plain words:

  • ephedrine acts on the nervous system because it increases the release of norepiphedrine.
  • but your brain has a moderating function which sees that norepiphedrine has been released and in order to balance it, another chemical agent is released: adenosine. That’s why we say that adenosine is an antagonist of norepiphedrine.
  • The smart idea is: if we can reduce the effect of adenosine, norepiphedrine will not be blocked and thus it will give its full outcome.
  • This is achieved by caffeine, which limits the effects of adenosine and thus maximizes the physiological reaction to ephedrine.
  • In conclusion, caffeine and ephedrine are synergistic products: the weight loss results when both are used in an EC stack is greater than the sum of the results obtained by caffeine alone and ephedrine alone.

The effectiveness of EC stacks or ECA stacks (EC stack plus aspirin, not recommended) has been measured by so many medical studies that the difficulty for us is to select one of them. We have picked up a 9-month, double-blind, randomized control study comparing the efficacy and safety of ephedrine and caffeine versus placebo [6]. Here are the results: “The treatment group lost significantly more body weight (-7.18 kg) and body fat (-5.33 kg) than the control group (-2.25 and -0.99 kg, respectively)“. And the conclusion of the researchers: “A low potency ephedra/caffeine mixture appeared safe and effective in causing loss of weight and body fat, and improving several metabolic parameters, including insulin sensitivity and lipid profiles when tested under physician supervision“.

Conclusion

To sum it up, we will repeat a part of the conclusion of this medical trial: EC stacks are “safe and effective in causing loss of weight and body fat. We have not much to add, except this crucial point: this is true only at normal doses. Make sure to read our recommendation of pages,Β EC stacks safe dosage and EC stacks standard dosage.

This will be it for this article, because there is still a lot to say: believe it or not , there are other ways even more effective for your weight loss than an EC stack! And also based on synergistic effects.
Stay tuned until we tell you more in our next article. Meanwhile don’t hesitate to email to tell us what you think about our cliffhanger: lame? Be honest, but not too much πŸ˜‰

Why Do People Drink Decaffeinated Coffee?

And why do we ask? πŸ˜‰

Because we saw in our last article that a moderate coffee consumption had more health benefits than drinking decaffeinated coffee: the positive effects of caffeine are added to those of other coffee components such as antioxidants. In other words: do people really know about the health effects of coffee? And if they knew about it, would they still drink decaffeinated coffee?

This raises the question of medical information in general and how people react or change their habits based on that information. Coffee is a good example: it illustrates perfectly what we want to point out.

A brief history of coffee’s image throughout the ages

  • coffee has always been appreciated and it is still one of the most consumed beverage in the world since centuries.
  • On the other hand, coffee always arose suspicion: it is black, strong, it alters the mind and has powerful physiological effects, no surprise then that coffee has always been a usual suspect.
  • Our literature is full of stories and anecdotes about coffee and its dangers, as old as from the 17th century, see for instance the famous “Women’s petition against coffee” in 1674 and how men replied to that .
  • In more modern ages, the scientific population has conducted thousands of studies during decades and has informed essentially about the risks.
  • In the 60s and early 70s, several studies attributed a risk factor of heart disease and bladder cancer to coffee: in the global opinion, drinking coffee became a risky pleasure and decaffeinated coffee developed accordingly.
  • Years later, hundreds of medical studies have been conducted and surprisingly most of them have refuting the previous findings: the relation between coffee consumption and risk of heart diseases or bladder cancer has been denied by several studies, and coffee has even been presented as reducing the risk of other diseases such as liver cancer, type 2 diabetes and neurodegeneration.

So what should people believe? It seems like scientists have been ambivalent on this topic: couldn’t they state once and for all if coffee is good or bad for us?

Why is it so hard for doctors and researchers to take a stand about coffee and health?
As you can guess, doctors are serious people and they don’t communicate widely unless there is a clear evidence proven by scientific studies, submitted to their pairs and approved by the whole community. If there is any doubt or if this medical communication might be misunderstood or harm people, they stay cautious and ask for further researches.
As a consequence, unless scientifically proven, you won’t hear from them that “this is white and this is black”, you will more probably hear about shades of grey.

In the case of coffee and health effects, the ambivalent communication is mainly due to the methodology of these medical studies: they are “observational” and not “interventional”. Let us clarify these methods in a few words.

Observational versus interventional studies

Observational research methods take their name from the fact that the investigator simply observes, no interventions on the studied population are carried out by the investigator. The main categories of observational research are cohort studies, cross-sectional studies and case-control studies.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and you know that knowledge is key πŸ˜‰ That’s why we took time to do these nice pictures which explain how observational studies are conducted and also one picture for the famous RCT (Randomized Controlled Trial) so that you see the difference.

Cohort study

This type of observational study selects a large number of persons before the condition appears and follow up each subject during years, and then will analyze at the end the probable causes by comparison between people.

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com about observational studies: here the Cohort Study

Cross-sectional study

These studies select subjects at one point in time only (today) without regard to the condition and deduct a risk factor from the look at each subject .

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com about observational studies: here the Cross-Sectional Study

 

Case-control study

This last category of observational research selects only subjects who have the condition, then look back at the history of each subject and then analyze a risk factor by comparing to a group having no condition.

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com about observational studies: here the Case-Control Study

 

Randomized Controlled Trial

We mention this interventional study only to give you an easy comparison to the observational ones.

EphedrineWhereToBuy.com about interventional studies: here the Randomized Controlled Trial

 

Limitations of observational studies

These observational methods are scientifically valid (sample, control group, quality of measurements, distortion) and they are used mainly for the research of risk factors, or when other methods can’t be used for ethical reasons (danger for the subjects) or practical reasons (large scale studies running for decades). Of course the weakness of observational studies, compared to randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled clinical trials, is that the researchers deduct a probable risk factor but without unquestionable evidence. With a randomized controlled trial, you get evidence. With an observational study, you get a risk factor and a probability of disease, but no evidence.

Today we know that it is highly probable that coffee has more benefits for human health than harms, but highly probable does not equal 100 percent certainty. Our common sense has then to prevail, in order to act based on the level of probability, if certainty cannot be achieved: each one of us has to assess the strength of the evidence by comparing the risks to the benefits.

To come back to our question: why do so many people drink decaffeinated coffee? Probably not due to a better taste compared to coffee. Either because they want to avoid some effects that they really experimented by themselves (sleep disorder for instance) or because they think that caffeine is bad for them (blood pressure, pregnancy etc.) or simply they are not sure and they apply a precautionary principle.

Here is our own point of view

Based on the in-depth analysis we did recently, we see the balance of risks and benefits of coffee as a Gauss curve (also known as “bell curve”) based on consumption: a few cups will bring positive results until a peak is reached, depending on individual factors, and then after a certain limit the negative effects will be higher than the potential healthy effects. The safe attitude is then to stay under a reasonable limit: in that way you won’t have the maximum benefits but you stay on the safe side. Then the good question is: what is a reasonable consumption for you? Again, it can vary but the usual limit is set to 4 or 5 cups per day.

By the way, did you notice how much this approach about dosage and the resulting risks and benefits balance also apply to another alkaloid, ephedrine? This is a perfect transition to our coming article focusing on weight loss: compared to the fat burn effect of an EC stack, what can you expect from coffee that has been proven medically?

Last words for decaf drinkers: stay informed (but don’t trust all pages on the web), focus on yourself (your body knows), use your common sense… and you will be fine!

Keep in touch,
Mike Budd.

Focus on the C of EC stacks: Caffeine

Summer vacation is gone and almost forgotten…

Our Health Dream Team had its “start of the school year meeting”, checking the last questions received by email in order to answer together or to assign the tasks if some topics had to be developed.

This was the case for an interesting point raised by many: caffeine, probably due to our last pages about EC stack safe dosage and EC stack standard dosage. Typical questions: “is it safe to take such dosage of caffeine?” or “any side effects for the heart?”

The discussion between us showed that caffeine and coffee in general was a big topic: coffee had been presented as bad for our health for years and then new studies revealed that it might be a true wonder drug, considering the health benefits in diabetes, cancers etc.. Is it good or bad?? Why don’t we have a better medical evidence? Why are experts so ambivalent in their answers?

That’s why we decided to do a complete update on the current medical knowledge about coffee, by sharing the tasks between us:

  • latest studies showing the benefits of a moderate coffee consumption
  • list of the risks at high dosages of caffeine
  • why it is so difficult for experts to take a stand: a few details about the methodology used by these medical studies
  • what effects are due to caffeine and others also valid for decaffeinated coffee
  • weight loss effects of coffee, caffeine, compared to an EC stack

Nice program as you can see πŸ˜‰

To be honest, some members were a bit reluctant to accept so much workload at this period of the year – I will not give their names πŸ˜‰ But we thought that it was exactly the core purpose of our site: to give an reliable information about the risks and benefits for your health, we did it for ephedrine, we will also do it for caffeine because it is the second most important alkaloid in our site. You may find minimum information about EC stacks on the web, mostly by people trying to sell products. You may also find a lot of information about coffee and caffeine, but see how much is outdated and not linked to our point of interest. This is why we will cover this topic: if we don’t do it, who will do it? πŸ˜‰ And this will probably be it for alkaloids: I don’t see us developing on any other known alkaloid, such asΒ nicotine, morphine or cocaine πŸ˜‰

The good point is that after a hard work by each team member, we now have a draft article that we will post in two parts because one might be too long.

We hope that you will enjoy it, as it has been a serious challenge for us to go through each medical study (that you will be able to check on your own, thanks to references and links when available) in order to give you an overview of the positive and negative health effects.

If you have read our post “Fascinating Alkaloids, the Example of Ephedrine“, you will not be surprised to see that caffeine could be the best or the worst thing given by Nature to Man. Or quoting Manfred Hesse:Β Alkaloids, Nature’sΒ  Curse or Blessing?

With this knowledge about caffeine, added to the information about ephedrine that you have here in our pages and posts, you will see why ephedrine and caffeine are both considered as original wonder drugs and why they are so effective for weight loss (or fat burn to be precise) when combined in EC stacks.

Enjoy! with a cup of coffee of course πŸ˜‰

Mike Budd.

PS: We said in a recent post that we would update our review of the best selling sites for ephedrine, well it’s not going so fast, but still it’s progressing πŸ˜‰

Boost your Cardio Training with Ephedrine

If you have a basic knowledge of ephedrine and if the word Β«cardioΒ» doesn’t make you feel tired even before starting, then you are probably on the right track for your weight loss.

Ephedrine can boost your cardio trainingIndeed cardiovascular training is often associated to sweat, pain and boredom. Still it is one of the most effective way to burn fat. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) would destock more fat but it is a quite demanding exercise which is not recommended to people who don’t already have a good physical level. Thus cardio training is a good start. Ideally you would start building a solid cardio base before trying HIIT. And believe us, this time would not be lost, when you think at the list of benefits that you will get.

Benefits of cardio training alone

  • Your heart is a muscle, if you get it pumping at a higher rate you will progressively improve your athletic performance, you will have a larger stroke volume and a slower resting heart rate, and consequently you will significantly reduce the risk of heart diseases.
  • Hitting the road regularly will reduce the risk of osteoporosis and increased your bone density (contrary to popular belief, running is not dangerous for your joints).
  • Sweating on your bike will decrease your blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
  • Swimming at a good pace will help you building leaner muscle.
  • Rowing and all other cardio trainings will keep your body’s hormones in balance by stimulating several hormones: epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol, insulin and endorphins, the « feel-goodΒ Β» hormones.
  • Your mind will thank you also: your aerobic exercises will reduce stress, anxiety or depression, and many studies found a positive effect on sleep.
  • Last but not least, by exercising you are setting a very good example for kids who might join later.

Proposed cardio training sessions

You could start with 3 weekly sessions of 30 minutes at moderate pace and then target 5 per week. You will see quick progress and the next step will be time to increase intensity in order to improve your endurance: warmup, target heart rate, plateau and slowdown. It is important to decrease progressively for a better muscle recovery. Unless you train for marathon it is better to increase the intensity rather than the volume of your exercising. You should also vary your sessions as much as you can, preventing physical and mental boredom that treadmills masochists know very well. Try another sport, run with friends, have fun.

Benefits of ephedrine for cardio training

If you want to boost these benefits, ephedrine is the right choice for several reasons:

  • Ephedrine will increase your metabolism before you start your cardio training and multiply the positive effects during the exercise.
  • You will raise your heart rate and thermogenesis and as a result, lipolysis will start earlier and last longer, you will mobilize and burn more fat at low intensity training. Careful though: it is very important to stay below 70% of your maximum heart rate for two reasons: first because it is a safe precaution for your heart knowing the powerful effects of ephedrine (you don’t want to be in the red zone), second, you will lose more fat at low intensity because you will burn fat instead of glycogen, which is the stock of glucose in your muscle cells used immediately in case of high intensity efforts.
  • Another benefit of ephedrine, aside higher fat burn, will be a higher energy level which will help you keeping the cadence: we know from experience that a decreasing energy level is the main reason why people stop exercising, it’s just to hard.
  • Other positive effect of ephedrine: you will keep your lean muscle mass, or to be honest you will lose less, depending on the intensity of the cardio sessions. Anaerobic exercising such as High Intensity Interval Training would of course do better but again we don’t recommend it while taking ephedrine, our focus today is to burn fat while building lean muscle and improving endurance.
  • The last advantage of your intake of ephedrine is that it will reduce your appetite, this is interesting for people who want to lose weight without cravings.

Recommended cardio sessions with ephedrine

Boost your cardio training with ephedrineDepending on your goals and your timetable, our recommendation is to start building your cardio base without ephedrine, then with ephedrine for 8 weeks max, then resting 2 weeks, then cardio training with ephedrine plus caffeine (EC stack) for 8 weeks again (here you will have the huge effect), then rest again, then High Intensity Interval Training without ephedrine (second huge effect), and then cycling. If you keep this track, you will achieve amazing results. If your main goal is weight loss, your challenge is now to keep it off by adapting definitely your way of life to your new weight, by keeping exercising of course but also but stabilizing your food intake in quantity and in quality.

Update on EC Stack Safe Dosage

Just a quick word to tell you that we have updated our page about the safe EC stack dosage: we have received many requests for the same complete table, not in milligrams of ephedrine but with the daily number of tabs (ephedrine and caffeine) for all servings during these 6 weeks.

This was also a good opportunity to give you the total number of 8mg ephedrine tabs that you will need for these 6 weeks:

As announced here, the next page will be about the standard EC stack dosage for experiencedΒ  people: lesson learned, we will include both tables from the start, milligrams AND tabs of ephedrine and caffeine πŸ˜‰

By the way: within our team we have discussed the idea of a third page about EC stacks with an strong dosage this time, knowing that it would still remain under the dosage tested in most medical studies. But finally we have rejected this idea for safety reasons: it could be useful for 99 persons out of 100, but still 1 person without any experience of ephedrine could start at this strong dosage and could go through serious adverse effects – that’s why we will not publish it. Anyway the needed information is available in this page where we have gathered all medical references.

Again and again: STAY SAFE.

Cheers, Mike
