ECA stack is basically a blend of three common compounds namely caffeine, ephedrine and aspirin. This combination of ingredients suppresses the appetite, targets the particular fat cells that need to be burnt and raises the overall rate of metabolism. Each of these ingredients work together to make this happen. The aspirin and caffeine works in slowing down the body’s natural reaction in stopping the cAMP production and extending the effect. Ephedrine stimulates the manufacture of norepinephrine and circulates it throughout the adipose tissue thereby increasing the cAMP level. But before taking the ECA stack, you need to carefully examine your medical condition by your health care specialist.
Unlike other anabolic steroids, the response of this stack is same in both men and women. So, the dosage chart for men and women is also the same. You should never try this stack in high dosage when you start for the first time. The dosage of the three ingredients in the sequence of ephedrine: caffeine: aspirin should be in the ratio of 1:10:3. Each dose should contain 24 to 30mg ephedrine, 200mg caffeine and 75 mg of aspirin. You should begin with a single dose in a day and then slowly go up to three doses per day. This combination of ingredients should not be taken more than 6 to 8 weeks with a gap of four weeks between each cycle. It is recommended that you take each dose in the early hours of the day along with a meal. The last dose should be taken minimum 8 hours before you go to bed or else you can suffer from insomnia.
ECA stack as a fat burner
When these three ingredients are taken together, they produce a synergistic effect and increase the metabolism by almost 10%. This ultimately boosts the fat burning process in the body and helps you to lose weight. Ephedrine on one hand increases the overall heat of the body and this helps in melting the stored fat. The fat that melts in this process turns out to be the source of energy of the body. Caffeine on the other hand, ensures that the body burns fat throughout the day and also increases the metabolism process.
Tips to follow
Though the dosage chart for men and women is the same in case of ECA stack, there are certain tips that you need to follow to avoid causing any harm to your body like:
- You should avoid taking caffeine in any other form while on this stack. Combining this stack with any other stimulants could worsen the effect instead of doing good.
- Do not take high-dose of Aspirin pills, you are recommended to take 81mg of Baby Aspirin tablets especially when you are taking it many times a day.
- If you are sensitive to Aspirin and it leads to upset stomach, then you should replace it with white willow bark, fish oil or any other products containing anti-coagulant properties. White willow bark is a pain reliever.
