The Black Mamba fat burner is considered to be one of the highest dosage ephedra extract diet pills available legally on the market. At 65 mg of ephedra per capsule, it is the next level up from the 50 mg Diablos ECA Fire Caps made by Innovative Bio Labs. Black Mamba Hyper Rush uses an EC Stack formula which means it combines ephedra and caffeine without the aspirin that you would need to make the full ECA supplement stack. Most of the users of this weight loss product are bodybuilders or guys simply looking to add a bit of muscle and the supplement is designed to be used as a pre-workout energy pill. Best results will be seen in combination with exercise and a healthy diet.
A lot of people who buy Black Mamba Hyper Rush pills think that this product uses the same type of ephedra that was made popular in fat burning supplements like Ripped Fuel, Xenadrine, Hydroxycut, and Lipodrene. Unfortunately, that type of ephedra sinica has now been banned by the FDA. Black Mamba does not use the Chinese ephedra but rather an American species of the herb called Sida Cordifolia. This ephedra plant is less powerful than Chinese ma huang ephedra because it contains less of the ephedrine alkaloid that actually raises your metabolism and unlocks fat deposits. Furthermore, Black Mamba uses an “Ephedran Extract” which has all of its ephedrine removed. That is why the majority of bodybuilders have moved on to taking pure ephedrine in a synthetic form which is tested to deliver the same results but is legal under USA law and under FDA regulations.
Another option is to combine a synthetic Ephedrine HCL product like Kaizen or Synerenex with Black Mamba Hyper Rush if you want to enjoy the mix of stimulants provided in the Black Mamba formulation. While that is sometimes recommended for other products, it is important to note that this diet pill contains Yohimbine HCL and there are certain safety concerns about combining ephedrine with yohimbine in an ECY Stack. Studies have shown that these substances pose a risk of something called “hypertensive crisis” – a side effect which is not as present when taking these thermogenic compounds on their own.
In addition to 65 mg of ephedra extract, 200 mg of caffeine, and an undisclosed amount of yohimbine, you will also find phenylethylamine in this product. This chemical is believed to positively alter your mood and may provide Black Mamba with some of its increased mental energy effects. Half of the job of any good pre-workout supplement is mood elevation so you get the motivation to go hard at the gym. Innnovative Labs also relies on something called Carralluma Cactus which is supposed to be superior to Hoodia extract as an appetite suppressant. If your goal is building muscle you might wonder if it is a bad idea to take an appetite suppressant, but in most cases these herbal extracts are intended to help you stick to a healthy diet while not completely destroying your appetite.
The suppliers warn that this supplement should not be taken by people under the age of 18 years. Do not use Black Mamba Hyper Rush if you have a history of high blood pressure and hypotension, heart, liver, kidney, or thyroid disease. It should not be combined with medication for diabetes, asthma, migraines, glaucoma, seizures, or any sort of psychiatric medication or depression treatment. Specifically, this product can interfere with MAOI’s which are a common medication used to treat symptoms of depression. Do not exceed the recommended dosage of two capsules per day and you should not take more than one capsule every four hours.
Take with lots of water and seek out medical attention of you start to experience dizziness, headaches, chest tightness, nausea, chest pain, or other more serious symptoms. These symptoms can be made worse if you combine Black Mamba diet pills with caffeine or other stimulants. You should not use Black Mamba prior to extensive exertion especially in very hot climates or weather. Ideally, check with your doctor before you begin to use any ephedra weight loss supplement and make sure you inform him or her of all other medical conditions that could interfere.
