Yellow Thunder is an old-school fat burner that claims to still contain ephedra. There are lots of questions flying around forums about how products like Yellow Thunder can contain ephedra if the ingredient is no longer legal for use in a diet supplement. The answer is simpler than many dieters think. There is more than one extract from the ephedra plant. Only the stimulant extract is regulated by the FDA. All other extracts, which have no use as part of a diet supplement, are legal and can be included with the name ephedra. Companies selling products like Yellow Thunder are not selling authentic, fat-burning ephedra.

List of Ingredients


  • Ephedra Extract
  • Methylxanthin Anhydrous
  • Methylsynephrine
  • Citrus Aurantium
  • Phenylethylamine HCL
  • Yohimbe
  • Hoodia
  • Theobromine
  • Chromium
  • White Willow Bark
  • Green Tea Extract

Product Features

APS, the company behind Yellow Thunder, does a great job of hiding the useless ephedra in this fat burner. The ingredient list shows the makings of an ECA stack, but there are two forms of synephrine and caffeine is listed as methylxanthine (just another name for caffeine). Two forms of synephrine are added to mask the fact that the ephedra does not have stimulant properties. Synephrine is a cousin to ephedra extract, but this cousin comes with all the negative side effects and none of the positive benefits. Dieters will not lose weight taking this supplement or any supplement with synephrine like they did taking ephedra. Ephedra is unmatched in the weight loss market.

To round out the supplement APS throws in a mood-booster (phenylethylamine), which is dangerous for use by dieter with mental or psychiatric issues of any kind. Hoodia is the appetite suppressant though clinical research proves this ingredient does nothing to suppress the appetite. White willow bark is the aspirin in the ECA stack and green tea is one of the few proven, safe ingredients in the mix.

  • Contains two forms of synephrine.
  • Will likely cause increased heart rate and increased blood pressure.
  • May cause mood swings comparable to those suffered with psychotropic drug use.


APS Yellow Thunder is not a safe supplement for use by most dieters. The fact that the company uses the ephedra name to increase sales is sketchy enough. Moreover, the product contains multiple stimulants, a mood altering ingredient and an ineffective appetite suppressant.

    Yellow Thunder ‘may’ have been a great product before they change ephedra alkoloids to sida confordia ‘leaves’. The leaves are so inadequate for an energy boost. The seeds and roots is where the power is. Dont waste your money. SO disappointed.

    My only recourse is to grow it, harvest the seeds/roots. Put it in a braun coffee maker and add powder to a smoothy.
