I would NOT recommend stacking yohimbine with ECA.

Here's the problem:  the eca stack works by stimulating beta-receptor sites, and yohimbine works by suppressing alpha-receptor sites.  It isn't just fat cells that have these receptor sites--your heart does too.   If you take these supplements at the same time, you are sort of pushing the gas and the brake at the same time (as Lyle McDonald has put it).  Your heartrate and blood pressure could skyrocket.


Here are a couple of my articles on Yohimbine and ECA:

thanks a lot for emphasizing this again. It's really a problem that people carelessly mix all sorts of medical drugs without really knowing what they are doing.

I am somewhat concerned about this substance. The supplements I am taking is known to have it and I am really wondering if it is still okay to take it. Thanks for this, will take me time to read everything though.

yes it is safe and a life saver for many with asthma/allergies.

Just take it properly and avoid it if you have heart issues, on beta blockers.

So these are a good fit for an ECA stack?  What does the ECA stack do to your heartrate, don't wan't to feel all freaked out all day.

It definitely raises your heart rate but unless you have a heart condition I don't think that its to a dangerous level

I had a friend who competed in the Jr. Nationals years ago.
She "lived" on ECA to get through the day, and swore up & down that it melted fat off her better than Clen.

A gal at the gym just lost her husband to a heart attack.  Coke, ephedra, and other stims were all part of his previous lifestyle.  29 years old!  Left behind 3 little kids  Cry

^^
Who the hell does COKE while having 3 kids, IMHO this dude was going to expire on the family no matter what...

Don't do it, you can not impossibly know how the amount of alkaloids you get from the tea.

I just started back on ECA stack on May 29th. After low carbing (under 50 grams a day) for 2 weeks prior, the stack gave me the boost I needed to be jacked up again! Stepmill for an hour is a breeze compared to the previous 2 weeks. I have to up the intensity level now from 6 to 7 (under fat burn program). I don't abuse ECA. I take 3 servings/day at 24 grams of ephedrine, 200 grams of caffiene, and one bayer tab. I wish that they would have NEVER took the stuff off the shelves in the first place.
Im using it now ECA..I take 25mgs E,200mgs C & 81mgs Aspirin. 2x's per day ( First thing in the morning & either mid afternoon/pre workout).

I have heard it should be 3x's a day. But im fine with 2.good clean energy.I dont like over doing things.I keep it simple and safe along with good diet.
