Stacker 3 by NVE Pharmaceuticals is a fat-burning thermogenic that does not contain ephedra. This formula contains chitosan, an ingredient well known for its fat-binding properties. Consulting a doctor is recommended before using the fat-burning product
NVE Pharmaceuticals claims Stacker 3 improves mental alertness, increases energy and stamina, improves the body’s ability to burn fat and inhibits the body from storing fat. Stacker 3 does not contain ephedra, an herbal ingredient banned by the US Food and Drug Administration after it was linked to heart attacks and strokes.
Among Stacker three natural ingredients are chitosan, grapefruit extract and kola nut extract. Chitosan, according to The Directory of Life Extension supplements, showed in studies with rats to shed fat which was excreted in rat droppings. Grapefruit has long been associated with weight loss. Department of Nutrition and Metabolic Research at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, California, found that a study group given grapefruit showed significantly more weight loss than placebo. Kola nut contains a high amount of caffeine, which may result in a thermogenic boost.
