This Is Everything You Need to Know About Ephedrine

If you want to know what ephedrine is, how it works, and how effective and safe it is, then you want to listen to this episode.

No matter how hard you train, how dialed in your diet is, or how smartly you supplement, losing weight is a pain in the ass.

The leaner you get, the more you have to deal with hunger and cravings, the harder your workouts become, and the less you have to eat to keep the needle moving.

That’s why many people turn to drugs like ephedrine for help, which has a special place in the hearts of bodybuilders everywhere.

If you’ve spent any amount of time in the gym, you’ve undoubtedly heard that it’s as close to a weight loss “magic bullet” as you can ask for.

Ephedrine purportedly kills your appetite while also dramatically increasing your metabolic rate and fat burning, which means you’ll not only lose fat faster but will also have an easier time of sticking to your meal plans, as well.

Even better, we’re told, ephedrine is just as safe as caffeine but, unlike the world’s most popular drug, gets more effective the longer you use it.

Poke around online, though, and you’ll find the opposition party, who claim that ephedrine is middling at best as a fat burner and not nearly as safe as many people think. The more strident critics even claim that it can significantly raise the risk of anxiety attack, heart attack, and stroke.

And so, like with many things related to building muscle, losing fat, and getting healthy, you’re stuck in the middle, wondering whom to believe.

How effective is ephedrine, really? How serious are the side effects and health risks? And if it’s safe, how should it be dosed and how long should you take it for?

Well, you’re going to get answers to all of those questions and more in this episode.

You’re going to learn exactly how ephedrine works, how good of a “fat burner” it really is, what the literature has to say about its safety, and more.

Let’s get to it.
