Ephedrine HCL and Weight Loss
Based on scientific evidence, when ephedrine is used in combination with caffeine it causes weight loss.
Ephedrine plus caffeine and ephedra plus herbs containing caffeine are much more effective than ephedrine alone in promoting weight loss. The usage of ephedrine, ephedrine plus caffeine, or dietary supplements which contain of ephedra and herbs with caffeine was associated with a statistically significant increase in weight loss over a relatively short time.
The effects on weight loss of synthetic ephedra plus herbs containing caffeine and ephedrine plus caffeine are equivalent: weight loss of approximately 2 pounds/month more than was associated with placebo for up to 4 or 6 months of use.
Ephedrine usually is combined with caffeine in diet supplements. Both ephedrine and caffeine alone have moderate weight loss effect, but the effects of ephedrine and caffeine together are fare more powerful then either compound alone.
Combination of ephedrine and caffeine in the correct ratios is very affective in fat burning. Ephedrine (with caffeine) works very well for fat burning.
The clinical studies have shown that optimal Caffeine to Ephedrine ratio for fat loss is 10:1. The vast majority of studies have used 20mg of ephedrine and 200mg of caffeine 3 times a day for total daily dose of 60mg Ephedrine and 600mg of Caffeine.
