Our expert says:
I am not in favour of any product that contains ephedrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine which can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. There have even been some reports of athletes that were either seriously ill or died when using products that contain ephedrine or synephrine. If you are trying to build muscle tissue you need to concentrate on doing your exercises, and being patient because building muscles is a slow process which takes time. To promote muscle growth you also should use a high-carbohydrate diet which is 'protein-sparing' and provides sufficient energy for the exercise. Click on 'Fitness' at the top of this page and then on 'Nutrition' and read the articles on 'Diets for Sportsmen and women' particularly the ones on carbohydrates and protein.
