Green Stinger is an over the counter weight loss pill that has become popular among dieters who have tried many other products and who have reached the end of their tether in terms of not finding something that is truly effective and powerful enough to meet their expectations. That said, just because a product is selected by people who have become frustrated with many other available products, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this one will work. It is important to look more closely into weight loss supplements before taking them as they aren’t always what they seem.
In this case, Green Stinger is marketed as being a powerful thermogenic. In this way, it is supposed to increase the body temperature in order to cause the body to burn through more calories and stored fat in order to fuel this additional heat. How does it do this? With ephedra.
Therein lies the problem. Ephedra may be marketed as a powerful thermogenic and it may very well work to boost the body temperature to increase fat burning and calorie burning, but there is a very dark side to this ingredient, as well. This substance has been associated with a number of very powerful and dangerous side effects, including an increased risk of stroke, heart attack and other cardiac issues. Moreover, it has also been directly connected with several deaths.
This substance has been banned from weight loss pills by the FDA due to the number of reported adverse reactions and fatalities connected with its use. For this reason, Green Stinger is, in fact, illegal for production, sale and purchase in the United States. This is the case in a number of other countries, as well. Therefore, even if you weren’t afraid of the potentially risky side effects, you are also putting yourself at risk of getting into some hot water due to the fact that this is not a legal product.
If that wasn’t enough, consider the rest of the formula. It contains: ephedra extract, yohimatrix (two versions of yohimbine HCl), citrus aurantium, synephrine extract, acacia rigidula, phenylethylamine HCl, Theobroma CoCoa, green tea extract, naringen, pure white willow bark extract, evodiamine and TriENRG (kola nut, guarana extract and yerba mate).
This means that this product actually contains a long list of additional stimulants beyond ephedra, including a combination of stimulants against which the FDA has released a consumer warning (sinephrine and caffeine, which are both contained in this product from multiple sources).
