Introducing Betadrine ECA™, one of the most comprehensive and research-backed formula/ingredients available in a thermogenic fat burning and weight loss supplement. The advanced thermogenic formula of BetadrineECA was designed to target fat loss and appetite suppression from multiple angles and is ideal for the dieter who’s looking to supplement their diet and exercise program and achieve rapid fat loss.

Ever since Ephedrine became illegal or near impossible to obtain, dieters have been searching for a suitable replacement. Ephedrine was part of the well known "ECA Stack" which is a combination of Ephedrine, Caffeine, and Aspirin (ECA). When these ingredients are stacked together, they create a synergistic effect. BetadrineECA was formulated to not only be a potential suitable replacement for the ECA stack but to take the fat loss stack to another level, above and beyond what the ECA stack could ever do.

The ingredients in BetadrineECA are clinically shown to:

  • Enhance Fat Burning
  • Increase Thermogenesis
  • Accelerate Metabolism
  • Increase Energy and Focus
  • Decrease Fat Storage
  • Improve triglycerides
  • Reduce appetite
  • Improve insulin sensitivity
  • Decrease glucose absorption (intestine) yet better glucose utilization
  • Increase AMPK, which makes fuel sources (glucose & fat) more available
  • Increase ACC, which decreases fat storage

Green Coffee Bean Extract

Chlorogenic Acid (CGA) is a polyphenol compound in green coffee that is responsible for the all of green coffees health benefits. Green coffee bean extract is the primary natural source of chlorogenic acid. One of the primary benefits of CGA is its ability to inhibit the enzyme alpha-glucosidase, which is responsible for breaking down carbohydrates; essentially it reduces the uptake of carbohydrates and glucose during digestion 

Green coffee bean extract has been shown to have anti-diabetic benefits. Studies have shown that consumption of 3 to 4 cups of decaffeinated coffee containing high contents of CGA significantly reduced the risk for T2DM by 30%. Chlorogenic acid (CGA) is considered an insulin sensitizer that potentiates insulin's action similar to the therapeutic action of the diabetic drug Metformin . Clinical trials have also showed that CGA is able to lower the glycemic impact of foods and chronically lower blood glucose levels of Type 2 Diabetics. A 12 week human study showed that CGA led to a 3 times great weight loss than the control group. In animal models, CGA has been shown to suppress body weight gain and visceral fat accumulation.

Green Coffee Bean Extract also increases the activity of AMPK.

Finally, Green Coffee Bean Extract also helps decrease gluconeogenesis, the process of turning non-carbohydrate foods, such as protein, into sugar.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis L plant, which is rich in polyphenol catechins and caffeine. Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which is the most abundant catechin in green tea, has many potential health benefits, including boosting metabolism, fat loss and ability to increase fat oxidation. Catechins have been shown to help reduce food intake, inhibit the main enzymes involved in fat storage and increase fat burning. A 12 week clinical trial in humans showed that stacking green tea high in EGCG content with caffeine for 12 weeks led to significant weight loss and reduction of body fat.

A human trial in Japan resulted in the men in women in the study losing on average 10% body fat mass compared to only 2.2% in the placebo group.

Another 12 week study showed green tea extract to significantly reduced visceral fat in humans.

An impressive study showed that test subjects taking green tea extract lost 7.3 more pounds (3.3 kg) and burned 183 more calories per day after three months than those not taking the extract.

In addition to the fat loss potential of green tea extract, many dieters who supplement with green tea extract have, at least anecdotally noticed a reduction in appetite.

L-tyrosine

L-tyrosine is a naturally occurring form of the amino acid tyrosine that the body uses to make proteins, neurotransmitters, and other important compounds. L-Tyrosine supports brain function. L-Tyrosine is also critical for the normal function of the thyroid gland. L-Tyrosine has been used to support stress reduction and depression by boosting certain neurotransmitters in the brain.

Because L-tyrosine helps your brain create neurotransmitters such as dopamine there may be potential to cause a reduction in appetite may then go down because your body's not looking for food to create dopamine. Foods that are high in protein are also thought to have such a satiating effect. Eating more protein are said to have this effect due to the amino acid tyrosine in the protein rich foods. This high protein intake seen in ketogenic diets and a Protein Sparing Modified fast is one of the reasons for the natural appetite suppressant effect of the diets.

L-tyrosine is often seen in many thermogenic fat burner products and was very popular combining it with ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin in the original "ECA" stack of the 1990's.

In theory, adding it in supplemental form could further improve the thermogenic effect of the ECA stack. In animal models, injection of ephedrine and L-tyrosine improves the thermogenic effect over ephedrine alone. As per Lyle McDonald (CSCS  and author of The Ketogenic Diet: A Complete Guide for the Dieter and Practitioner), anecdotally most individuals report a greater ‘kick’ from a thermogenic fat burning stack when L-tyrosine is added. 

Olive Leaf Extract

Olive Leaf Extract, or more so its active ingredient Oleuropein is a common ingredient found in many thermogenic "fat burners" and glucose disposal supplements. Oleuropein has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, protect against LDL cholesterol oxidation, and inhibit peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma.[36,37]. PPAR inhibition has been shown to potentially inhibit new fat cell formation. In addtion, olive leaf extract has shown to reduce the production of fat cells by activating Adenosine Monophosphate-Activated Protein Kinase (AMPK). Activating AMPK is a critical part of inhibiting adipogenesis, which is the formation of adipocytes (fat cells). (Activating AMPK is also one of the many things our product Glucosatrol does.)

Increased AMPK activation is associated with:

Reduction of blood triglycerides
Extended life span by as much as 20-30% in animals,
Inhibiting excess fat synthesis and increased burning of stored fat
Decreased liver fat accumulation and fat-related chronic inflammation
Improved glucose uptake in cells, lowering blood sugar
Increased numbers of new, healthy mitochondria

Olive leaf extracts have also been shown to be potent thyroid hormone boosters. This increase in thyroid levels then leads to increased energy expenditure and may help combat obesity, diabetes, and metabolic disorder. (38). In ahead-to-head study done in diabetic rats comparing either olive leaf extract or glyburide (Diabeta(®)), a common glucose-lowering drug, it was shown that the anti-diabetic effects of olive leaf extract proved superior to those of the drug.

Coleus forskohlii

Coleus forskohlii is an herb historically used in Ayurvedic medicine. The main bioactive ingredient in Coleus forskohlii is called Forskolin activates the cellular messenger cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).

Elevated cAMP levels are associated with increased rates of fat loss as well as improves ageing-related phenotypes by increasing the protein level of Sirtuins, which prevent metabolic disorders to mimic the effect of calorie restriction. Stacking Forskohlin with with other fat burning compounds can increase the overall effectiveness. Forskolin has also been shown to enhance thyroid activity, increase the burning of calories and decreases calories stored as fat.

Caffeine Anhydrous

Caffeine anhydrous is a synthetic form of caffeine and it is absorbed extremely quickly and raises your energy levels rather quickly. Caffeine is one of the most widely used substances in the fitness world and even the average person looking for a pick me up. Caffeine is well known to improve mental focus, physical performance, boosts alertness, increase caloric expenditure, suppress appetite, enhance fat oxidation and increase metabolism. Caffeine is almost always part of a thermogenic fat burning supplement as well as an integral part of the well known Ephedrine, Caffeine and Aspirin stack (ECA stack).

InnoSlim®

InnoSlim®  is a patented blend of Astragalus membranaceus and Panax notoginseng, that supports long-term weight loss efforts and reduce symptoms of metabolic syndrome. It was developed by NuLiv Science and has has 20 studies backing its effectiveness. Check out the 27 pages of data here: Innoslim

InnoSlim® has been shown in clinical trials to:

Reduce appetite
Enhance fat burning
Reduce glucose absorption in the intestines
Improve glucose absorption by skeletal muscle by 50% & reducing gluconeogenesis
Increase adiponectin levels (which increases AMPK levels for increased fat loss) and reduce insulin resistance.
Encourage fatty acid breakdown in adipose tissue (fat cells)
Increases energy expenditure (calories burned)

Capsimax®

Capsimax is a concentrated extract of capsaicinoids from red chili peppers (Capsicum annum); the naturally occurring compounds that cause the “burning,” or heat, sensation when consuming spicy foods. More than 90% of the capsaicinoids found in chili peppers are capsaicin, dihydrocapsaicin and nordihydrocapsaicin and considered to be the active constituents related to its weight management benefits. Capsimax discovered a way to harness all the benefits of this ingredient safely and without stomach upset. Capsimax allows people to consume efficacious amounts of the actives without stomach discomfort.

Capsimax helps promote lipolysis and supports the mobilization of fats for energy production. In a placebo-controlled, crossover, subjects taking 2mg capsaicinoids from Capsimax® daily (what researchers deemed a “low dose” of Capsimax), on average, burned 116 calories more than placebo due to an increase in resting energy expenditure. Though resting energy expenditure varies with each individual, this increase would yield almost 1 lb. of fat lost over 30 days by doing nothing else but supplementing with 1 daily dose of Capsimax. Capsimax has also been clinically proven to increase the amount of calories burned before, during and after exercise by a factor 12!

Capsimax Capsicum Extract and the health-promoting benefits of capsaicinoids have been researched in both animal and human clinical studies, all conducted in the US. The primary areas of study have been thermogenesis, lipolysis, metabolism and body composition. Capsimax increases thermogenesis and decreases appetite, making for greater calorie burning during the day and less consumption.

Hordenine HCL

Hordenine is a natural phenethylamine compound that occurs in different plats such as Citrus Aurantium (Bitter Orange) which also contains similar compounds such as synephrine. Hordenine has often been used as a stimulant and fat burner due to its associatition with tyramine and noradrenaline. Hordenine is a beta-2 adrenergic agonist, which boosts the production of adrenaline and noradrenaline. This will boost your heart rate and breathing rate which will increase your body’s metabolic rate and thus more fat-burning effects. Hordenine can also lead to an increase in the release of norepinephrine and a reduction in the metabolic destruction of norepinephrine; norepinephrine helps increase metabolism and can significantly reduce appetite.

Higenamine HCL

Higenamine is a chemical compound naturally occurring in various Asian plants. Higenamine is a stimulant and similar to how other other popular fat burners, which supports fat loss by stimulating β adrenergic receptors. It is a beta-2 agonist, which is one of the receptors ephedrine and synephrine works on. Higenamine can promote fat loss, stimulates lipolysis and energy expenditure and increase metabolism. Users of Higenamine have reported appetite suppression and bronchodilating effects.

When used/stacked with other compounds for example caffeine, the combination results in a very effective fat burner/thermogenic.

Isopropylnorsynephrine

Isopropylnorsynephrine is a modified version of synephrine, a known stimulant and fat-burner. While synephrine is the more commonly known and seen ingredient, Isopropylnorsynephrine is more potent and is much more effective at releasing energy from fat tissue. Not only does it increase fat burning, but it has other benefits as well. It increases energy as well as it shares traits with ephedra/ephedrine including bronchodilation and increased mood and focus even at low dosages.

In a clinical study it was shown to be 60% more effective than synephrine as a lipolytic agent. It was shown to be capable of breaking down lipids (fats) and triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids. Once these fats are broken down, the body uses them as energy/fuel, resulting in body fat stores being "burned". Isopropylnorsynephrine was included in the BetadrineECA formula because of its impressive stimulant, fat burning and thermogenic effects. It also enhances mood, focus, and aids in appetite suppression.

BioPerine®

Bioperine is a patented extract obtained from black pepper fruits (Piper nigrum) standardized minimum to 95% Piperine. BioPerine has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for over 20 years. In general, BioPerine was found to enhance absorption of nutrients by at least 30%. It was included in the BetadrineECA formula to enhance bioavailability of all the already powerful ingredients!

Not only does BioPerine help the other ingredients work more efficiently, BioPerine can also induce thermogenesis. Clinical studies show that piperine is able to activate the release of hormones responsible for thermogenesis.

Huperzine A

Huperzine, a dietary supplement derived from the Chinese club moss Huperzia serrata and has been used for years in traditional Chinese medicine. Huperzine A has been found to inhibit the enzyme that is responsible for decreasing acetyl choline in the brain. Increasing acetyl choline levels results in an in increase focus, mind-muscle connection, energy and creativity.

To sum it up:

Putting it all together, the potent and synergistic thermogenic ingredients in Betadrine ECA formula are perfect for the dieter who is looking for a product that targets fat loss and appetite suppression from multiple angles, increases energy, thermogenesis and calorie burn to help them in their fat loss efforts.
