L Carnitine and ECA Stacks

Curious to see if anyone would recommend these to aid weight loss?

I was recommended these by a friend, and curios to see what some others have to say.... H&B have a sale on atm, so if you think they are a good product might by some now

Thanks

    ECA stack is good. I've tried ALCAR at 4g ED, did nothing for me personally

    i rate ALCAR

    take about 3-4g 1hour before cardio, also gives a good mental focus. No science, but i always feel like it helps me shift fat from my midsection more so when i dont take it

    ECA will definitely help you lose fat, but you won't find it at H & B, because the E part(ephedrine) is not legal in UK. Caffeine and Aspirin are easily available, and if you can get hold of ephedrine, or Do Do chesteze, i would highly recommend it.

    thanks for the replies

    so I cant get an ECA stack in England then? Online or anything?

    I was just recommded them as if they were just a supplement, but after reading seems ephedrine could be dangerous... so I dont fancy trying to take them all sperately, would rather buya product that contains them as then they are measured etc

    appreciate your help

    thanks for the advice, grenade seems to have a good name

    1 more question, excuse my ingorance please

    whats the difference in an ECA stack and a Fat Burner? I am guessing they do the same thing, so why different titles?

    A 'fat burner' can include many ingredients such as caffeine, synephrine, TTA, raspberry ketones, forskohlii etc....

    ECA is a synergistic 'fat burner' that has 3 ingredients

    Is Sida Corifolia a worthy alternative to Ephedrine?
    Does anybody rate Conjugated Linoleic Acid?

    Not Really. Best off sourcing Pure Eph imo.

    It's ok. I've been using the primaforce Max CLA for the past 6months - can't really say whether it's helped or not, but it doesn't do any harm.

    Just had another question, so rather than making new post thought i'd post in here:

    I was going to buy some grenades when I get paid, out of curiosity though, would you recommend grenades, or buying ECA seperately and then mixing it to the correct quantities. Basically what I mean is, isit alot more benefitial using ECA or Grenades


    Also, L carnitine, is the pills from H&B any good? or would you recommend a certain brand, amounts etc?

    sorry for rambling lol

    if you can get eca go with that i find it far more effective.but grenade may work for you,did jack for me
    i think grenade is herbal ephedrine and the eca stack is ephedrine hcl which i find to be more effective.some people claim to get good effects from herbal eph and i would imagine you having not used either would get a good reaction from grenade.certainly worth a try....

    A couple of guys I know are using L-Carnitine from H&B and are having some increased fat loss compared with not taking it. But apparently it has a bioavailability of around 15% so they are on 4 times the RDA to get any effect, still cheap from H&B when on offer though.

    cheers guys

    Just curious, please delete if I have asked this question and not supposed to, where can I get Ephedrine HCL delivered to UK? The only ones I can find are 8mg, so thats means I would need to take like 4 or 5 to get 1 recommened dosage, I know you can get stronger ones, but never bought them.

    EDIT

    Few people have recommended Do Do Chesteze tablets, as the contain ephedrine, the epedrine in these the same as ephedrine HCL?

    Yes 18mg per tab, but it has caffeine and another ingredient too. They have been discontinued so are hard to get hold of

    thanks guys,

    might buy some, can get 200 30mg ones for $70-80 and they ship to uk, so might get some... i think would work out cheaper than buying grenades.

    Although, someone at work trying to put me of by saying, the will make me go mad, have a stroke, turn to other drugs etc etc...talk about scare tactics lol
