: I bought some sort of Ephedrine but I'm confused about the dosages for the E/C/A stack.
: The label says:
: brand: D&E Ephedra
: number of caps: 100 caps
: The label says : 950 mg each NET WT. 95 gm
: On the back side it says:
: Each capsule contains: Ephedra Extract: 833 mg
: Directions: (adults only). Take one capsule daily as dietary supplement.
: For the ECA stack the recommend dosage is always 25-50mg.
: But THESE caps contain 833 mg per cap.
: IS THIS WAY TOO MUCH OR WHAT?
: Hope you can help me out!
The key is right in the list of ingredients.. Ephedra is the herb which contains ephedrine.. I'm not positive how much ephedrine you're getting out of the 833 mgs., because I don't believe there's a standardized percentage that supplements are required to use, but it's just like yohimbe and yohimbine..
Yohimbine is the alkaloid that we really want the effects of, and the pharmaceutical usually contains 5.4 mg of yohimbINE, but there are many supplements that just use yohimBE bark, and it's not uncommon to see like 1200-1500 mg per tablet of that.. Twinlab says that their Yohimbe fuel is standardized for 8% yohimbine, which is helpful in figuring out dosages, but since that bottle doesn't tell you the % of ephedrine, it's kind of guesswork, unless someone else can help out.
Don't worry tho, you won't be taking 833 mgs. of ephedRINE!
Hope this helped, sorry I couldn't just give ya a mg answer..
