High Octane Ephedra is a great name for a supplement, but too bad ephedra is not legal for diet supplement formulation in the United States. According to the product description, there is 75 mg of ephedra in this supplement. Anyone who’s tried ephedra-based supplements knows the maximum amount added to fat burners is typically 25 mg. The fact that Foundation Nutraceuticals claims to add 75 mg to High Octane Ephedra means this is not real ephedra. There are likely multiple stimulants in the formula to mimic the effects of ephedra.

  • Caffeine Anhydrous
  • White Willow Bark
  • Coleus Forskohlii

Product Features

We immediately noticed several of the ingredients were listed on the label twice. This could be an oversight by the manufacturer with one listing showing how much of the ingredient is included in the supplement and the other showing what makes up the Sports One Blend. It is highly unlikely that the doubled ingredients are added to the formula twice.

Because of the high dose of ephedra claimed on the label, we are assuming this product contains a legal form of ephedra extract that has no stimulating properties. There are several extracts from the ephedra plant, but only one is proven to boost metabolism.

As we noted earlier, there must be some strong stimulants in High Octane Ephedra to mimic ephedra and there are; 300 mg of caffeine and 5 mg of bitter orange. Bitter orange is a cousin of ephedra and carries some of the same potential side effects. However, it does not carry the same benefits, so dieters are gaining more stimulation without the metabolism-boosting properties associated with ephedra. The 300 mg of caffeine is enough to give the dieter an upset stomach and the shakes within a half hour.

This supplement is not going to help the dieter lose weight and it won’t decrease hunger. Hoodia is not proven to be an effective appetite suppressant and no supplement manufacturer would include 75 mg of real ephedra in a supplement unless they wanted to be investigated by the FDA. Dieters need to be extremely cautious of High Octane Ephedra because it could cause symptoms similar to a heart attack.
