    which means overpriced and poorly formulated.

    HH tested at over 300mg caffeine per serving


    EC stack
    Thermorexin

    there are a number of SYC stacks without guggulsterones that are OK as well.

    while not reccomending ephedra based (pure ephedrine is better and cleaner) those are also still available

    do any of these shits really help you burn fat without actual ephedrine in them? if you take out whatever appetite controlling effects and the energy the caffeine gives you, is the shit you're putting in your body actually doing something to speed your metabolism? a friend recommended hot rox xtreme but im skeptical cuz i think it'll just get me wired all day and i dont want withdrawal after coming off of it since im fairly caffeine sensitive.

    www.drugstore.com

    It's called Bronkaid. It's an asthma medication, but really what it is is a 25mg ephederine tablet.

    They won't ship it to oregon thanks to oregon law :wtc:

    Not sure about NJ though.


    One other thing.. EC stacks are CHEAP...... Like $15 for 60 servings cheap.

    I've heard lypo 6 works well too but fat burners are really just caffeine these days. So drinking teas/coffee work just as well (drink them multiple times throughout the day).

    the MC component of thermorexin provides the same metabolic benefit as EC. EC is a stronger CNS stimulant and may have better appetite suppression effects ( the appetite suppression effects of the synephrine in thermorexin is a bit more varied- some cases much less than EC, in others equal or more.)

    unfortunately most stimulants dont mix well with bupropion, and generally increase seizure risk. plenty of people take stims with bupropion without issue, but they do increase the risk so its something to be aware of.

    you might want to look at non stim options like Alcar, green tea extract (egcg), levorex (alcar + GT+ other thermogens), fish oil, sesapure, glucorell,

    its a lot of caffiene so that may not sit well with you, but otherwise it wont hurt and it will help a bit. caffeine alone helps, HH is just not a good formula, especially for the price.

    note- if its one of the versions that contains guggulsterones, dont reccomend taking it (gugguls are anti-androgens and progestins, can lower your test and even aggravate gynecomastia)
