Im currently debating between albuterol and the ECA stack. Which one you guys think is more effective?
Good idea! I never thought of that, thats why im on this forum! Haha One day Rosie your gonna have to give lessons
I know I looked at your site and am interested in the nutrition planning from you! Just cant afford it right now
I will definitley be hitting you up as soon as I get some things in order! Plus my girlfriend (Jessica) has already emailed you and wants to do the nutrition and workout
However, I agree you should keep the asparin and add in the Alpha-Burn if you want.
ECAY (Y is for Yohimbine) is another popular variation. You'd just be using the Alpha-Yohimbine, which is better IMO because you can dose higher with less sides. I like > 20mg yohimbine at a time.
Since Albuterol has a shorter half-life than Clen (what makes Albuterol legal for use by humans!), I dose 9mg AM, 6mg afternoon, and sometimes if I need it another 6mg early evening. I once took ~18mg in one dose, that was too intense for me (arrhythmia)!
I should note I have a very high stim tolerance. I can take 2 Spirodex with coffee and take a nap soon after. 3 scoops of SuperPump Max didn't do much for me. I've also built up a tolerance to Albuterol.
For intro Albuterol, I usually recommend 4mg to start 1 time a day to get accustomed to it. Then move up to 4mg twice a day. Then 6mg twice a day. Then if that's not enough, add in a 3rd dose of 4-6mg. 12-18mg a day is a good dose.
Aspirin is a key ingredient in the ECA stack for its body protection properties and its absorptions aid. Without the inclusion of aspirin in the ECA stack, your body would have a harder time digesting and absorbing the ephedra and caffeine. Aspirin has been known to increase absorption rates and it thins the blood, which allows more nutrients to flow throughout the body at a faster rate. This delivers the nutrients and chemicals you need, but it does it faster and more efficiently than if the ECA stack was without aspirin.
From Daniel Holzman’s “The Ephedra Controversy”, found online at JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), “most clinical trials measure ephedrine and caffeine effects both independently and jointly, omitting aspirin and other NSAIDs. Aspirin is most often excluded from [such] medical studies as its affects are non-existent in regards to ephedrine or caffeine operation. Aspirin’s purpose in many weight-loss branded combinations is limited to increased absorption, lowered blood pressure, increased blood thinning, and increased cardiovascular prevention. Data has yet to be produced that shows NSAIDs have any affect in a weight loss situation aside from these preventative purposes.”
This study breaks down the need, reactions, and use of aspirin in the ECA stack.

This also helps to give a better understanding of how aspirin is related to the ephedra/caffeine combination
