What You Should Know
There is a small, but popular sector of the weight loss industry dedicated to the sale of extreme fat burners. These products contain multiple stimulants and often claim to contain ephedra, despite the fact that the ingredient is not legal for use in diet products in the United States. The ephedra found in these supplement is likely a different extract being sold as the classic ephedra extract, but the remaining stimulants are strong enough to cause some of the same negative side effects as ephedra. Before taking any diet pill, read the ingredient label and find out exactly what you’re taking.

From the first few ingredients to the last few ingredients, Megadrine is an extreme fat burner with potential extreme side effects.
The stimulants included in the formula include ephedra, guarana, bitter orange, green tea extract, yohimbe and theobromine. Combining all of these stimulants into one supplement may seem like the right idea. If a stimulant works to increase metabolism, more stimulants will work better, right? That is not exactly how it works. More stimulants simply mean the heart beats faster and eventually that could cause negative symptoms similar to a heart attack. This supplement is not safe for the average dieter.
Toward the bottom of the ingredient list is another ingredient found commonly in diet products, but it is dangerous none-the-less. Phenylethylamine changes mood. For some dieters the feeling of euphoria associated with the ingredient is enough to keep them on track with their diet and exercise program. But, if the dieter takes medication for mood this natural ingredient could interfere with how the medication works and cause negative side effects.

We want dieters to feel safe taking a fat burner or weight loss supplement. Megadrine carries the potential for many negative side effects. That potential is more than enough for use to raise the red flag. Taking a diet supplement should compliment weight loss efforts, not make weight loss a game of negative side effects and jitters.
