Some sites will tell you that they are no longer available. That is just not true. These sites will say this because they can not get certified by the DEA to sell Ephedrine alkaloids. Live Lean Today has real 25mg or 12.5 mg Ephedrine. Unfortunately it is not available to be sold in every state. Some states have no sales, others have mg restrictions while others have amount restrictions. There is some good new for people who live in states that have no ephedrine sales restrictions. We have something better which some people call Ephedrine Alkaloids II or the next generation of Ephedrine Alkaloids.
Why do our ephedra products no longer have Ephedrine Alkaloids? The FDA has not against ephedra. They are against the active ingredient in it called Ephedrine Alkaloids. So what is a manufacturer to do? Find an equal or better ingredient with the same chemical activity to replace the Ephedrine Alkaloids. Enter DMAA (1,3-dimethylamylamine), aka methylhexanamine, Geranium and Geranamine. Isn’t marketing Ephedra without Ephedrine Alkaloids and putting DMAA in it’s place deceptive advertising? It would seem that way at first but the answer is no. You see, Ephedra is still in the product but not the one with Ephedrine Alkaloids. Look at the graph below to see what actually is going on with Ephedra products. As you can see, Ephedra (Ma Huang and Sida Cordifolia) products now have either Ephedrine Alkaloids, DMAA (1,3 dimethylamylamine), PEA (phenylethylamine) or just plain caffeine from it’s many natural sources. Since the ones with Ephedrine Alkaloids are no longer available, we are left with only 3 choices: DMAA, PEA or just Caffeine disguised as an Ephedra product. From the strength chart below, only DMAA is the comparable ingredient to Ephedrine Alkaloids in terms of strength and effectiveness.
The solution found to making an FDA compliant ephedra product is to put Ephedra Extract with Adenosine Monophosphate or with DMAA, which is equally as good or better. Problem solved! Some even say that it is the next generation of Ephedrine Alkaloids. This satisfies the FDA and the dieter. DMAA diets are so effective and comparable to original ephedra that the FDA was trying to also pull it off the market. The FDA has no evidense or reason to pull DMAA.
Hydroxyelite with DMAA is the superior ingredient if you want the effectiveness of Ephedrine Alkaloids! Be very careful in selecting your Ephedra product as some companies use mainly caffeine and no Ephedrine Alkaloids substitute. The only equivalent alternative for Ephedrine Alkaloids in Ephedra Extract diets is DMAA! The second best, but not quite as effective is PEA. And the ingredient that is almost useless and a waste of money is the product with just caffeine. In the latter case, you are just overpaying for cheap caffeine pills under the guise of Ephedra. I don’t know about you but I have never met anyone who lost considerable weight just drinking coffee. The way to avoid getting ripped off when selecting an Ephedra Extract product is to carefully look at the label for the 3 main Ephedrine Alkaloids substitutes. These are DMAA (1,3-dimethylamylamine or Geranium), PEA (Phenylethylamine or similar looking or sounding ingredients), or just plain Caffeine (Guarana, Kola Nut, Green Tea, Yerba Mate, Caffeine Anhyrdrous). Only select the ones with DMAA if you want the Ephedrine Alkaloids restults!
WARNING: Since Ephedrine Alkaloids is being substituted by either DMAA or PEA, only a combination of either one and Caffeine should be present, not both! EG: DMAA with caffeine or PEA with caffeine. A rare exception is the Black Widow and the Stimerex Hardcore. You will never see a product with both Ephedrine Alkaloids and DMAA or PEA together for obvious reasons. If Ephedrine Alkaloids is present, then there is no need for DMAA or PEA since the latter two are substitutes. When you see such a product, chances are that Ephedrine Alkaloids is not present at all and simply put there on the label to scam consumers. The only product that I know of which had both Ephedrine Alkaloids and PEA was the Original Stimerex-ES. That is the main reason why the original formula Stimerex-ES was the strongest energizer and stimulant available. It had 2 strong stimulants on top of caffeine. That is the reason why the caffeine amount was only 80mg. Stimerex Hardcore is actually the replacement for original Stimerex-ES! It has the Ephedrine Alkaloids replaced by DMAA, the PEA and Caffeine all in one pill. The manufacturer for Stimerex Hardcore is also the same, Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals.

Products with Ephedrine Alkaloids and PEA or Geranium together do not have Ephedrine Alkaloids! Pure Ephed, Ephedrine Plus, or DMAA is the only effective Ephedrine Alkaloids substitute. Ephedra Extract products such As High Octane AMP are extremely effective for losing weight.
Just as with diets containing Ephedrine Alkaloids, first time DMAA users should start at lower doses to assess their tolerance. For those who have used Ephedrine Alkaloids products in the past, take a comparable amount. Since DMAA diets usually have the ingredient amount hidden in the proprietary blend of the product, we recommend sampling a few in order to find a comparable product with the same strength. Another good way to choose the one most suitable for you is to read the testimonials of other users in the product page. For those who found great results from the original formula Stimerex-ES, Black Widow would be the most similar product.
