In order to get rid of extra kilos, obese people and athletes use thermogenics. One of the world’s most effective fat burners is Ephedra diet pills.

Ephedra is a plant extract, produced from Tsaopen-Ma Huang.

  • Under the influence of Ephedra, body weight is reduced due to content of alkaloids that act as natural sympathomimetics.

Intake of Ephedra diet pills promotes release of norepinephrine – a neurotransmitter, which controls important body functions (including feeling of hunger and intensity of the heart rhythm).

Ephedra is similar to many well-known stimulants by affecting the body and by chemical structure.

However, unlike Amphetamine and Methamphetamine, this natural sympathomimetic does not overcome the blood-brain barrier – permeable barrier between the blood and the nervous system.

Ephedra diet pills provide the following effects contributing to weight loss:

  • increase metabolism and accelerate burning of subcutaneous fat;
  • slow gastric motility and help to reduce the amount of food consumed;
  • stimulate production of adrenaline needed for physical loads;
  • protect muscle tissue from breaking down and provide muscles with energy;
  • enhance blood glucose level, whereby energy for physical activity increases.
Ephedra Diet Pills

The required dose of Ephedra diet pills may vary from 12.5 mg to 25 mg two or three times a day. Ephedra stimulates the central nervous system.

The natural sympathomimetic contributes to acceleration of heart rate, as well as to slight increase in blood pressure and body temperature.

  • Clinical trials have confirmed Ephedra effectiveness for weight loss. Within a month of using Ephedra diet pills, obese people could lose at the average 2.5 kg.

There is no enough reliable data on safety and efficiency of Ephedra diet pills for athletes. Large-scale clinical trials that could assess impact of Ephedra on weight loss and increase of stamina in athletes have not been conducted.

However, many athletes and bodybuilders continue to use Ephedra diet pills to burn fat and improve endurance for physical activity.

A large number of fat burners that are popular among athletes is sold on online pharmacies.

Here are names of some of them: Green Stinger, ECA Xtreme Stack, Lipodrene, Lipodrene Hardcore, Black Mamba Hyperrush, and Ripped Power. Manufacturing companies of Ephedra diet pills are Schwartz Labs, Hi-Tech Pharmaceutical, Innovative Laboratories, American Generic Labs and many others.

To increase efficiency of weight loss, thermogenics can also contain other active ingredients. The most commonly used ingredient in Ephedra diet pills is Caffeine. Clinical trials have confirmed that diet pills containing Ephedra and Caffeine increase energy consumption and contribute to weight loss.

Caffeine contributes to better digestion of Ephedra, as well as to strengthening of stimulating effect.

  • However, fat burners containing Ephedra and Caffeine should be taken with caution. Rapid rise of adrenaline in the blood may cause a lot of side effects involving cardiovascular system.

Ephedra diet pills are safe for weight loss only as short-term, but regular use – no more than 6 months. Side effects of Ephedra diet pills may occur only in overdose or prolonged use of this fat burner.

To reduce risk of adverse reactions when using Ephedra diet pills, it is important to follow a few recommendations:

  • if you do sports, practice moderate-intensity physical activity;
  • consume at least 2.5 liters of pure fresh water during the day to avoid dehydration;
  • take thermogenics only in the morning to prevent insomnia.
