Ephedrine HCL is more typically known as a diet pill and pre-workout supplement for bodybuilders who want to build muscle and burn fat.
But it has also been used as a brain booster and study aid both in ancient Chinese and Indian civilizations as well as by modern students.
Ephedrine is a central nervous system stimulant which is known to give you a major energy boost and dramatically increase concentration.
Ephedrine is an organic stimulant which is derived from the alkaloids of the Ephedra Sinica or Ma Huang plant. Ephedrine stimulates the adrenergic system by boosting noradrenaline and imitating adrenaline. It also raises metabolism through thermogenesis, the conversion of calories into heat energy.
Ephedrine does not target individual cognitive processes, but instead stimulates autonomic activity of the central nervous system, the unconscious network which controls visceral action. Benefits include intense energy, and the ability to concentrate upon tasks for a long period of time. Use of Ephedrine is banned by the FDA for any reason other than asthma, cold, or respiratory illness.
Some report this substance can be addictive, keep that in mind.
It's recommended to start with a low dose, maybe 5 mg the first day, and work your way up from there. Take in the morning so to not disrupt sleep.
Many report L-Theanine, at a dosage of 200mg daily, to help bring the storm of energy to task and focus on what your trying to accomplish.
Ephedrine and Caffeine are used widely and safely in each others presence - a great combination!
