The Bodybuilder’s Secret Weapon For Getting Ripped – The ECA Stack

ECA is the workingman’s solution to losing body fat. Consisting of over-the-counter ingredients, it creates a thermogenic, fat-burning effect in the body for less than a dollar per day. It’s completely legal, and when used correctly by healthy people, very safe. Here are the basics:


81 mg Aspirin

25 mg Ephedra tablets

200 mg Caffeine pills

Directions: Consume one 81 mg aspirin, one 25 mg ephedrine tablet, and one 200 mg caffeine pill, immediately upon rising in the morning. Drink one cup of water with it. Repeat this dose between 2 and 4 pm. Consume two doses daily per day – no more. Enjoy the ECA stack 6 days per week. Use it 4 weeks on, 2 weeks off, for the duration of your pre-contest dieting cycle.


The cost for running an ECA stack is less than one dollar per day. A month’s supply of Ephedra can be purchased for about $12 at any corner store like Walgreen’s or CVS under the product name “Bronkaid”. A 200 count Aspirin can be found for less than $5, and caffeine tablets can be purchased at any grocery store, costing about $2.50 for 24 tablets.


Ephedrine causes a thermogenic effect in the body and raises body temperature. This results in an increase in the metabolism. The body reacts to this raise, and attempts to correct the imbalance by producing phosphodiesterase. Caffeine counters the phosphodiesterase production INSIDE cells, allowing the ephedrine to do its job. Aspirin works to make this effect last longer by countering phosphodiesterase production OUTSIDE cells. Together, these three common medications have a strong synergistic effect and cause fat loss in the body.


ECA stack leads to a slight increase in blood pressure, usually 4 – 7 mmHg on average. If you have a pre-existing heart problem, ephedrine may cause issues, although that is still to be proven. Do not become addicted to caffeine. Watch for stomach ulcer issues from aspirin use. As with all medication stacks, consult with your doctor first, and use common sense. If you sense anything wrong, consult medical assistance immediately. If you’re a healthy adult with medical clearance, give ECA a shot and see why it’s so popular for body fat loss. Many top amateur and professional athletes actually prefer ECA to illegal fat burners like t3 or clen, because it’s just so effective. As with all things medical, bodybuilding, and life, use extreme caution at all times. Good luck!
