Creating Your own ECY Stack
This is a quick guide on how to save yourself some money and create your own ECY stack that has worked wonders for me and many others during their cutting cycles. ECY stacks are pretty common but as ephedra was banned in supplements the E has been removed from many diet supplements and therefore most ephedra free brands don't do a whole hell of alot.

First off your going to need to buy your Ephedrine, Caffeine, and Yohimbrine. Although supplements containing ephedra were banned last year in the United States, you can still get pure ephedrine hcl online as it is a commonly used expectorant bronchodilator for such usses as asthma. One of the most common brands is "Vasopro" so just go to your favorite search engine and type in "Vasopro Ephedrine HCl" and you should be flooded with online stores supplying the product.

Caffeine is the next component in the stack and can be gotten almost anywhere. I am sure your local drugstore/supplement store has cheap caffeine tablets. You can usually get a bottle of 100 for about $5-6 at most places by such common brands as ProLab, but any generic version will do.

Finally you need your yohimbine hcl. Once again, most only supplement stores carry Yohimbine HCL and you can simply do a search for them. They usually contain around 2.5 mg per capsule and a bottle of 90 costs about $9.

Most people take their fat burning stacks 3 times a day. So we would be taking E, C, Y all together 3 times a day. But first we need to know our dosage fo each.

Ephedrine HCL: 25 mg which is 1 tablet of most common brands such as Vasopro

Caffeine: 200 mg which again is 1 tablet of most common brands like ProLab.

We are going to start out dosing at the optimal level based around suggestions for yohimbine hcl. Studies have concluded that the ideal dosing for Yohimbine is .2mg/kg (approximately 1 mg per 10 lbs). So for a 220lb person you are going to take 22 mg. (220/10 = 22 mg)

So what you need to do is calculate the following:
Your Weight (lb) / 10 = X mg / Pill size mg = Your Yohimbine HCL Dosage
Example for Me: 225 lbs / 10 = 22.5 mg / 2.5 mg pills = 9 pills daily

**REMEMBER TO READ THE AMOUNT OF mg PER PILL AND DIVIDE BY THAT NUMBER as it may be different than the above example ***

So now that we have everything calculated I would be taking 1 tablet of ephedrine hcl, 1 tablet of caffeine, and 3 tablets of yohimbine hcl as a single dose, three times through the day.

Other Info:
If you have never taken an ECY stack or even an ephedrine based product before I STRONGLY suggest you start off slow. Cut back the dosage and get used to effects before you go to full dosage. So instead of doing 3 doses through the day, maybe only do 2 and also cut back the yohimbine dosage with each one so your not at the optimal level. As you get used to it then you can bump up the number of doses and dosage.

If you guys have any questions please feel free to ask or share your results on this stack.

i dunno how long ago this thread was made but this stack sounds like it would work, and its very cheap to

best to start conservative with the Yohimbine... the sides seem to come on REAL strong as dose goes up (ie the dose:sides curve is not linear) make sure you can handle a certain dose and increase it very gradually until you work up to the point you want to be.

One more a question
I just wanted to add to the excellent stack suggestion that Sleazy posted that new users of Ephidrene should also not take it before they plan to go to bed. :D I learned that one from experience the first time I ever used the stuff LOL. I can still remember staring at my ceilling, contimplating if I'd wake anybody up if I started up some music and began re-modelling my house.

The question has to do with Yohimbe. Does anybody know if this stuff is banned in Cana-Duh? I've been reading about it for years, and I've just become interested in using it lately, but...I can't recall ever seeing it for sale anywhere. I swear though, I've seen it on the labels of some products with several things in it. Maybe I'm wrong. Ephedrine is not banned in Canada right now, but retailers are not allowed to sell it as a supplement or dietary aid. It has to be sold as a bronchial dialator. Funny, I didn't think my local supplement shop cared so much about my lungs and asthema. They have about 500 bottles on their shelf and you can buy them in cases of 12 bottles at a time for about 3 dollars a bottle. (around $2.25 US dollars) :)

$3.00 a bottle sounds like a good deal to me

HI Guys,

how is everyone. Basically, I like to try and keep fit, but have let myself go over the last year or so. I have been presented with an amazing opportunity, but to take advantage of this opportunity i need to lose 1.5st in about one month, I have a slow metabolism so if very hard for me to lose wieght fast.

I am currently about 13.5st, and i need to be 12st. I have decided to supplement by routine with an ECY stack. But I would like some advice on whether this will help me. Also, I have read that whilie on the ECY stack, i need to take it in cycles. I would like some advice about how to main these cycles, for example, is it two week on, one week off or something like that.

any help would be much appricaiated.

Thank you

Start your own thread if you're going to ask a question.

This is an INSANE amount of stims. Seems like you might want to talk to your doc before trying this. However, does look like it'd be MUCH cheaper than buying any diet pills with these already in them...

One of my fave stacks is Ephedrine+Caffeine+Aspirin+Yoimbe+Tribulus+Goat Weed +ZMA

I'm a big fan of the EC/ECA stack.

But I would recommend not taking Yohimbine at the same time. I think you are much better off taking a dose of Yohimbine/caffeine in the morning, then don't take your first dose of EC until 3-4 hours later.
