    Arrow Halostachine Information - Vapor XT


    I know a lot of people were asking to see more information on our primary active in Vapor-XT. Here it is...feel free to post up questions/comments:

    Halostachine, also known as N-methylphenylethanolamine, is a beta adrenergic agonist (1,2) similar in structure and activity to ephedrine that is found naturally in rye grass and is also produced exogenously in mammals and standardized from the plant Halostachys Caspica. Furthermore, it is a natural metabolite of phenylethylamine, which is found naturally in cocoa beans. Halostachine has pharmacological action similar to ephedrine but is slightly less potent and believed to be more safe (3). Halostachine is less toxic than ephedrine, with an LD50 twice that of ephedrine, 500 mg/kg ip vs 242 mg/kg sp which gives an indication of the relative toxicity of this ingredient to other similar products (4,5). Anecdotal testing of halostachine suggests that it is actually more effective than ephedrine, giving it a much better therapeutic index (efficacious dose)/(toxic dose). A paper by Shannn, Cone and Yousefnejad demonstrated no significant increases in heart rate with halostachine administration - even when administered intravenously at doses of several multiples of those proposed for supplemental use. This makes the favorable results more comparable to synephrine in effect(6). Increased heart rate and cardiovascular effect is a potential liability of ephedrine use and the main cause of the FDA action against ephedrine yet is reduced in synephrine, which is still on the market.
    Like synephrine, the ease of production into methamphetamine is not much of a concern since halostachine has no methyl group in the side chain. Although we are not experts in illicit drug production, this critical difference should alleviate a major cause of ephedrine being banned in the US and other countries.

    Very nice. I can tell you guys that at first I was quite skeptical about this compound. On paper, it does look less potent than ephedrine. Honestly, I thought that it was going to be a weaker ephedrine alternative. In reality, its effects are quite different...and IMO much more pleasant.

    I think that many will find this to be their favorite stimulant on the market today.

    I have to say that this product seems very interesting.... In your limited experience using Halo, how would you say it compares to ephedrine in terms of strength inducement and aerobic threshold extension? Basically, does vapor xt provide the same athletic benefits of ephedrine without the B/P increase? Furthermore, you mention "more pleasant" effects. What would you liken that to? Also, would this stack well with geranamine or a geranamine product like thermogum, clearshot, etc or would that be overkill? Looking forward to the release. Thanks

    I would say that is accurate. Very similar effects to ephedrine in ability to increase athletic performance. I'd have to give the edge to halostachine as far as cognitive effects go. I notice significant mood improvement with the stuff...with no anxiety. I don't know if i'd combine it with geranamine honestly. I think you'll find that you don't need to.

    I do enjoy mixing geranamine with psuedoephedrine however. I think it really improves effects. Ephedrine is too much IMO, and starts to give me headaches and tachycardia.

    Take advantage of this guys, its really a great price (especially if you buy 2 bottles) on a very unique and effective product. AMS is the only company to utilize halostachine.

    This is one of the most cost effective stimulants on the market, especially if you take into account the fact that the serving size is 1 capsule, and there are 90 caps per bottle.
