Ephedra Extract is now banned because it can cause very harmful side effects. Citrus Aurantium is a natural cousin to ephedra, thought to have the same fat burning effects, without the side effects. Synephrine Extract 30 is essentially the same thing as citrus aurantium. Acacia Ridgula is another form of norepinephrine, which is similar to ephedrine. Phenylethylamine HCL Thermogenic Intensifier/Neuromodulator and Neurotransmitter is more commonly known as the “love drug” and induces feelings of happiness and well being. Theobroma CoCoa is a good source of antioxidants that has many benefits. Green Tea Extract is full of antioxidants that help with weight loss and cancer prevention. 45% Epigallocatechin Gallate (ECGC) is the chemical compound in green tea thought to help increase metabolism. Yohimbine HCL, Alpha-Yohimbine11, and 11-Hydroxy Yohimbine are all forms of a bark that help suppress the appetite. Naringen comes from grapefruit and is thought to be the chemical that contributes to weight loss, Pure White Willow Bark Extract, Salicin / Acetylsalicylic acid works well with ephedra to strengthen fat burning., Evodiamine (98%) raises the body’s core temperature to increase metabolism. Proprietary TriENRG, kola nut extract, guarana extract, yerba mate: all of these are sources of caffeine which are thought to keep the body alert and increase fat burning..

Due to the fact that ephedra is a main ingredient in this formula, we cannot recommend it. It is not healthy, and could lead to several side effects, even death. With such a stimulant heavy formula, there is far more danger in this product than it is worth. Instead, we recommend you find a safe product that does not contain ephedra, but still has proven fat burning and appetite suppressing ingredients, and use it alongside a balanced diet and exercise program.
