Stimerex - Es is a branded herbal blend with the key ingredient being 25 mg ephedra extract. Ephedra extract is a stimulant in nature and contains herbal form of ephedrine. Despite being a natural product, the product has properties that are similar to those of amphetamine. This is why the product is associated with side effects, some of which are serious. Throughout this article, Stimerex - Es will be discussed in the categories of ingredients, function and side effects.
The product contains 75 mg acacia rigidula extract. Like amphetamines, acacia rigidula extract has chemical compounds that are stimulant in nature. Another ingredient found in Stimerex is the theobroma cocoa extract. This is a chocolate powder which is sometimes referred to as the food of the gods because it has a mood-changing ability and is a stimulant as well. Phenylethylamine HCL is another ingridient found in this product. It increases the levels of dopamine in the brain thus bringing about a feeling of pleasure and controlling appetite at the same time. The product also has 25 mg of citrus aurantium as an ingridient. Citrus aurantium is also referred to as bitter orange and has been in use for hundreds of years now in Chinese medicine. It is known to supress appetite and increase metabolism
Other minor ingredients found in this product are: green tea extract which increases the metabolic rate hence aiding in weight loss, yohimbe extract which treats male impotence as well as other sexual dysfunctions, and 150 mg caffeine which is a stimulant and dihydroxybergamottin which is an amplifier for the other substances.
According to the manufacturers, Stimerex serves three main functions. These are: burning fat, suppressing appetite and controlling craving. The ingredients discussed above react in the body leading to thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is the ability of the body to generate heat. This in turn increases body temperature. An increase in the temperature of the body leads to burning of calories and fat. The manufacturers of this product also assert that stimerex-Es targets fat that is stored in difficult body parts such as the thighs, buttocks and hips. The product achieves this by attaching to alpha-2 receptors. They claim that the alpha-2 receptors are abundant in those areas. These alpha-2 receptors have a considerable affinity for epinephrine.
For many years, there has been a debate on Stimerex regarding its side effects. Ephedra, which is found in the product, can lead to side effects that are not life threatening such as vomiting, anxiety, nausea, palpitations, increased blood pressure and tremors. Ephedra is also linked to seizures, heart attacks, stroke and even deaths some times. Yohimbe extract leads to side effects such as pain during urination, skin flushing, agitation, genital pain, dizziness, nervousness, headache, irritability, and tremors.
The Stimerex-Es is a natural herbal product that is aimed at reducing fat in the body, controlling craving and suppressing appetite. However, it is essential to consult a doctor before starting the use of this supplement. This supplement has ingredients that have side effects which may be severe.
Consulting a doctor is therefore important as stimerex may produce unwanted responses when taken along with prescription drugs.
