    These are the ephedrine free version, as ephedrine is now banned.

    Ingredients:

    198 mg of this combo: Kola Nut, Yerba mate, Cassia Mimosoides Etract, White Willow Bark

    200 mg of caffine

    25 mg of: Tri-Gugglytoid Complex (Green Tea, Guggulsterone, Gymnema).



    These are definately the best energy substance on the legal market. Way better than the $3 energy drinks I usualy get.

    I actually read all of that stuff a week or so ago - nothing about the possible adverse health effects of using this stuff (aka heart attacks).

    interesting. something i know a little bit about.

    so one of my part time jobs is being a display model at trade shows for companies who produce and sell heart sonogram machines. my job is to lay on a table, and have them demo the machine to hospitals and doctors who want to buy it. they use the sonogram on my heart and show how the machine works.

    The people who operate the machines for the demos are doctors and heart specialists. I take hydroxycut hardcore, which is similar to all these pills because they are caffeine based.

    "the pills have the same effect as ephedrine. They are bad for your heart because the constant UNNATURAL expanding and contracting is bad for you. Your heart rate races and has an adverse affect. With all the irregularities and chemicals, the walls of your heart lining are thinned and cause your heart to collapse. This is why ephedrine is illegal. It kills people. Even though these pills don't have ephedrine, they have the same effect."

    I haven't taken it since. It scared the shit out of me. Drink some coffee, get some exercise, sleep more. I'll never take those things again.
