Stimulants/Fat Burners Be sure to read Muscle Growth and Fat Loss by Stimulating the Beta-Agonist System - The Role of Ephedrine, Caffeine and Aspirin by Michael C. Prevost, Ph.D. - This article discusses how the beta-agonist pathway works to increase fat loss and muscle growth and what role ephedrine, caffeine, and aspirin (E/C/A) plays in the system. Many of the fat burning products listed here are based on this concept. The products based on ephedrine and/or caffeine (or the herbal forms of these substances such as ephedra, ma huang, and/or guarana) are central nervous system (CNS) stimulants. Upon initial use, they have the potential risk of elevated blood pressure and heart rate. Please check with your doctor to make sure you are in perfect health before using these products. For further research into ephedrine, you can use MEDLINE to look at research studies. We are often asked which "fat burner" product is the best for losing large amounts of body fat. Our answer to that is to first make sure your diet is in order. If you continue to eat and exercise in the same way as you did before using one of the fat burner products, you will probably not see much effect. We recommend the "Zone" Diet developed by Dr. Barry Sears as an effective fat-loss way of eating. Once you have this crucial factor in losing body fat under control, the products below based on the synergistic combination of ephedrine and caffeine can be very effective at helping your body to burn extra calories for maximum fat loss. You can read all about the Zone Diet plan in Enter The Zone: A Dietary Road Map which is available to purchase. Also, read this free article: Getting Started In The Zone! IMPORTANT: DO NOT stack (take more than one product at a time) any of the following products containing central nervous system stimulants like ephedra and/or caffeine. If you are on any prescription drugs or over the counter medicine, check with you physician prior to use. If you experience bad side effects, discontinue use and consult a physician if necessary.

The desired result is to lessen the amount of insulin that gets secreted in response to intake of carbohydrates which break down into glucose (blood sugar) causing a rise in blood sugar levels. Large amounts of insulin secretion increase the likelihood that excess carbs will be stored as fat and, over time, also may play a role in the starting of several disease processes. Lipoic Acid Chromium Vanadyl Sulfate - Vanadyl Sulfate may be effective at increasing insulin sensitivity.
