Can you educate me on E-C-A please?
Back in highschool I successfully used an ECA-based fat burner and it worked amazing for me. Except then I failed my physical for football because I had a heart murmur that was brought out by the Ephedra, or so my doctor said. I stopped taking them and then I passed my physical Shortly after Ephedra was banned anyways.
Fast-forward to today. I am curious about trying Ephedra again to shed a few pounds via Bronkaid. What is the recommended dosage to use? But more importantly, I would like to know how Ephedra works, why it has been banned, and if there really is a danger to me taking it if it did indeed induce a heart murmur for me.

1 tab bronkaid, 200-250 mg caffeine, 81 mg aspirin. Take your fish oil daily (2-3 g EPA+DHA). I probably wouldn't advise you to take ephedrine with a known heart condition, but I feel someone else would be better suited to answer that part of your question.Training log:

U shouldn't take ephedrine/ephedra with a heart problem. Look into alphamine. More expensive but much safer.

The ECA stack is old school for fat loss and def works but I don’t know if id risk exacerbating my heart condition… In your case I’d recommend upping the cardio and keeping the diet clean.

Why risk it with a heart condition?

I dont actually want to risk it, but was looking for opinions. I think I will stay away and just work on cardio and diet.

IF the yohimbe is the only heart affecting ingredient in alphamine, there is always the international version which is yohimbe free

I know this thread is a few months old but anyone have anymore info on eca vs just ec, specifically whether aspirin is worth adding in or not. That link shows an article that takes a pretty solid stance in favor of adding aspirin but it's also 20 years old(1993) and my more recent research led me in the direction of leaving the aspirin out. Any info would be greatly appreciated, till then I'm sticking with just ec.

Prolonged elevation of BP as in enduring, long, intense cardio sessions? And if you do just weights and low intensity cardio leave it out? Also the main reason I read not to take the aspirin is its bad to be an aspirin regimen the just stop, the stopping is supposedly where problems may occur.

Okay well my BP is what the doctors call perfect lol so I guess I'm good. Did you read that article? It alleged a synergistic effect when taking aspirin...
