What You Should Know
Have you been taking stimulants for years and have trouble feeling an energy lift from over the counter weight loss supplements? Prolonged use of caffeine and other stimulants leads to the body to desensitize. Stimulants no longer work to increase metabolism and weight loss. Desensitization is not a healthy reaction to stimulants. If the dieter takes stimulants for too long, they body will eventually need that stimulant. Addiction to stimulants is similar to addiction to alcohol or prescription medications. While products like Methyl Drive are created for people no longer sensitive to over the counter supplements, they are not safe for all dieters. Every day dieters that do not take supplements on a regular basis or drink tons of coffee will feel negative side effects when using this supplement. Some side effects could be life threatening.
List of Ingredients
Geranium Stem, Synephrine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Yohimbine HCL, Dandelion Root Extract and Beta Phenylethylamine HCL.
Methyl Drive is created from a long list of stimulants with a mood booster and diuretic thrown in. Geranium Stem or 1,3-Dimethylamylamine is used in bodybuilding supplements like Jack3d. It is listed as a mild stimulant, but combined with a long list of other stimulants the effect is increased.
Next on the list is synephrine. Synephrine is similar to ephedra without the proven metabolism boosting effects but all the negative side effects.
Caffeine anhydrous is the most well-known stimulant. There are 200 mg of caffeine in this supplement, which is more than most dieters should take in one dose. Yohimbine HCL is the fourth stimulant in the formula. Yohimbine is also commonly used to increase sex drive.
Dandelion root is a diuretic. Diuretics force water out of the body and cause increased urination. Stimulants have diuretic effects, so taking a diuretic with a stimulant increases the risk of dehydration. Beta Phenylethylamine HCL is a mood boosting ingredient. Most users report feeling uplifted and euphoric after taking this ingredient. Dieters with depressive symptoms, or other mental issues, should never take weight loss supplements with mood altering ingredients like phenylethylamine.

Methyl Drive claims to support weight loss, fat burning and energy for people who are no longer sensitive to common stimulants. This formula is strong – too strong for the average dieter. Stimulants do not work better in mega-doses, but they may cause negative side effects leading to hospitalization and death. If the dieter is no longer sensitive to caffeine, they could be addicted to stimulant, which is another problem all together.
