Green Surge Review
What You Should Know
Green Surge is a fat burner that contains ephedra, caffeine and white willow extract. This is the recipe for an ECA (ephedra, caffeine, aspirin) stack. Diet pills still lingering after the FDA ban on ephedra typically include high doses of other stimulants. This could be because the formula does not contain ephedra at all or simply because the company thinks more stimulants equates to better weight loss results.
List of Ingredients
- Ephedra Extract
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Citrus Aurantium
- Pure White Willow Bark Extract
- Theobroma Cocoa
- Yohimbe Matrix
So the heart of Green Surge is the ECA stack. If this supplement contains real ephedra, the package could be confiscated during shipment. Federal regulators check shipments from time to time for illegal substances and ephedra is illegal for inclusion in diet supplements.
If you take the ephedra out of the equation, there are still multiple stimulants that could cause negative side effects in Green Surge. Caffeine, citrus aurantium, yohimbe and theobroma cocoa all have stimulant properties. That’s four stimulants in addition to ephedra.
As if overstimulation was not enough, Green Surge also contains phenylethylamine. This ingredient is known to cause drug-like side effects and is not safe for use by dieters who have a history of psychiatric conditions or illnesses like depression and bipolar disorder. There is no warning in the product description about the potential interaction with psychiatric medications.

Green Surge may have been a popular formula when ephedra was legal, but even then the supplement contained phenylethylamine, a dangerous ingredient. Dieters should never buy a product that contains dangerous ingredients not should then buy an ephedra-based supplement when ephedra is controlled by the FDA. In addition to ephedra and massive amounts of caffeine, there is white willow bark – a natural blood thinner. Patients taking blood thinners should not take white willow bark.
We suggest choosing a supplement with proven ingredients that are safe for all dieters. Green tea, for instance, has clinical support as a metabolism-boosting ingredient yet it’s safe for most dieters to take daily.
