Does Ephedra Really Shed the Pounds Like It Promises? I Decided to Put It to the Test!
Since the reintroduction of Ephedra based products on about April 15 of
this year I have had a few close friends of mine contact myself about
Ephedra. The had simple questions about the safety and effectiveness
of Ephedra based products. We chose to purchase a bottle and run
our own little test. The test consisted of 20 days, following the
instructions of course, with regular monitoring. The Results were not
what we expected!
Just to get everyone that may not know about Ephedra up to speed we
have included some fact about Ephedra and it's beginings. Ephedra
(also known as Ma huang, Chinese Ephedra and epitonin) is the worlds
oldest medicine. The Chinese discovered ephedra more than 5000
years ago. Research has shown that ephedra increases metabolism
and helps promote weight loss, relaxes the air passages in the lungs to
help treat asthma and cough, promotes perspiration to help a person
recover from a minor cold and helps promote urination to help relieve
Ephedra has been widely researched for its thermogenic (fat burning)
properties. Research has show that ephedra helps promote the loss of
fat while helping spare lean muscle tissue, a highly sought-after
property that prescription diet medications still have not been able to
On May 20 of this year, we started by taking weight measurments and
sizes of out test subject (just so happens it is my wife, but she
volunteered). Day after day she would take the required pills and myself
would record the effects. Remember that all these companies are
promising you will lose 15lbs per week and 5 dress sizes in 3 weeks.
After 1 week my wife had lost only 4lbs and not even 1 full dress size. A
far cry from the 15lbs promised. Througout week 2 we recorded and
noticed that the pounds were begining to shed quicker. My wifes energy
was increasing along with her happiness. When June 9th rolled around
we finalized this experiment with the final measurments. In 20 days my
lovely wife had lost 13lbs and 3 dress sizes. And although the product
did not live up to its promises my wife and I were extreamly inpressed
with the results and have already ordered next months supply.
Even thought this seems like a simple experiment you must always
consult your doctor before you begin any form of dieting.
Also do not use ephedra if you have any medical problems as the use of
a stimulant might overtax your system. Do not use ephedra if your
activity / environment will prevent you from dissipating heat. Your body
core temperature might exceed safe levels. And do not take more than
the manufacturer's recommended amount.
