Stacker was another of those diet pills that had to radically change its ingredients when Ephedra was banned by the FDA. Although probably less potent now, it contains several of the most popular fat-burning ingredients and is still a top seller among the body-building and fitness community. They talk about amazing benefits that can even be compared to those of ephedrine. But of course, their product is completely safe! But does Stacker 3 actually come through?
How Does Stacker 3 Work?
Stacker contains several of the herbal fat-burners found in other pills, plus a couple of unusual ones too. They have some good ingredients. For example, they have citrus aurantium, which can be compared to ephedrine without the side effects. But the difference is that while they have some good ingredients like this, Stacker 3 does not bother using the clinically proven amounts! So the ingredinets don’t matter as much as you think.
Citrus Aurantium-a formula including the active ingredient known as synephrine, this has been pushed as the alternative to ma huang. However, in this diluted form, you don’t necessarily get the powerful effects you are looking for. It would depend in part on the concentration of synephrine actually in the ingredient listing
Guggulsterones-guggul is an ayurvedic herb that has been used for thyroid health because of its high iodine levels. However, if the thyroid is healthy, it won’t make a huge difference in terms of metabolism, and if it’s not, you should be seeking medical attention. Guggul in the right way can also promote the building of lean muscle mass.
Caffeine-It has been shown to produce a powerful thermogenic effect in the body if used in the right amounts. However, it also comes with the classic side effects of caffeine.
Green Tea Extract-a thermogenic form of caffeine, it is also rich in antioxidants like EGCG. However, one should keep in mind that it requires at least 400mg of 50% caffeine considering the fact that caffeine is the actual fat burning component
Chitosan-coming from crustaceans, this can block a certain amount of fat content from your body’s absorption. But it is measured in percentages and fairly questionable
Garcinia Cambogia-typically requiring about 1500mg, this can produce a certain fat burning and weight loss effect. However, it’s more effective when combined with gymnema sylvestre and chromium.
Guarana-used as a natural energy supplement, it is not effective in actually promoting weight loss without both damiana and yerba mate
Stacker 3 Side Effects
Stacker 3 does contain caffeine, which can cause nervousness, headaches and higher blood pressure. It used to contain ephedrine, which was banned by the FDA in 2004, but Stacker is now ephedrine-free. Users should still consult their doctor before taking it though.Stacker 3,
