What You Should Know
Ephedrasil is a marketing genius product. Not only does the supplement carry a name that is similar to Ephedra, but the ingredient list has an herbal alternative to the popular Ephedra/Caffeine/Aspirin stack that was so popular before Ephedra was banned. The remaining ingredients are mood-affecting herbs that are clearly there to help the dieter feel better about losing weight.
List of Ingredients
Green Tea (40% caffeine), L-Tyrosine, Taurine, Glucurnolactone, Metabromine, Phenylalanine, Valerian Root, Passion Flower, St. John’s Wort, 5-HTP, Citrus Aurantium, White Willow Bark, Magnolia Bark, Gingko Biloba and Siberian Ginseng.
The Ephedra craze was based on an effective and proven ECA stack. ECA stood for Ephedra, Caffeine and Aspirin. While there were questions about why this stack worked, the results were evident despite the lack of understanding. When Ephedra was banned, it was replaced by synephrine, the next best herbal stimulant. Ephedrasil includes three ingredients that complete the herbal ECA alternative – Synephrine, Green Tea with Caffeine and White Willow Bark.
While Ephedrasil would love for this supplement to have the effectiveness of former popular weight loss products, there is no evidence that a dieter will lose more weight. Packing caffeine and synephrine together may cause caffeine jitters, insomnia and irritability however, which could be why the remaining ingredients are commonly found in mood and sleep supplements.
The real problem with Ephedrasil is not even the ingredient list. The product is promoted as causing the dieter to “feel good” or experience a “buzz”. These references are simply untrue. The website also claims there are only 217 bottles left, so ordering now is the best choice for dieters who want to lose more weight. Feedback is listed from eBay or another auction website and no testimonials are offered. Ephedrasil sells for $69.00 per bottle.

It is interesting to find new weight loss supplements trying to play off the Ephedra boom. There are few herbs that effectively work to increase weight loss, but Ephedra was one. Now that the ingredient is banned, supplement companies are using any tactic they can think of to play off the name Ephedra and Ephedrasil is one. The supplement offers an herbal ECA stack, but no proof is given that the product works to increase weight loss. Dieters should choose products with a free trial, money back guarantee, and testimonials with before and after pictures not a product that offers none of those advantages.
