------- Synopsis --------------
This product scared the sh... out of me!! First of all I don't believe on any "weight loss" ("WL" from here forward) product, since what matters is each one's effort on diet and exercise; what I believe is that these kind of products will provide an extra edge on the areas involving the corresponding goal, which I considered on the next section. do you want me to cut the chase? then yes it was effective, and so far it has been the most powerful WL product I have tried.
------------Effectiveness (9/10) -----------
We know each person is a universe, and some products work on different levels for each individual, so all the pros and cons on this review are COMPLETELY PERSONAL and the product may not work exactly the same with you. I won't say that this product made me lose weight, it just helped me HUGELY on most of the areas "considered" part of weight lose, which I specify here:
- Focus (9): I loved doing my job activities while using Oxy ECA Black (OECAB). I was doing my job really really fast, it was like a constant "self-pressure" to do things as fast as possible and a desire to finish my programmed activities and then some. The only problem, is that this focus still is not translated to my physical performance (it is something ENTIRELY personal). While working out I was awake and my mind would be like wanting to push harder and harder but when I got tired my body would not answer to my mind's desire.
- Awareness (9): During the cycle I made up my mind to train also after waking up, so I would get my alarm to wake me up around 5:30am, take the pill and wait around 20 minutes then I was ready to get out of the bed in a blaze!! No yawning, not "sleep hangover", NOTHING, just a clear mind and a focused goal, to crush my workout!!
- Thermogenesis (9): this was WAAAAAAAAAY different than other WL products. I have never felt that "thermal sensation" some people talk about when taking this kind of products, but with OECAB I was not feeling that, I was feeling like a chilling in my stomach, like when you drink a sip of cold water on a hot day and you feel the change of temperature wherever the water travels. Yes I know it sounds contradictory but that's how I felt.
- Sweatness (10): MY FIRST 10 on a product!!! If there is something that could be perfect on a WL product, it would be the lack of "annoying sweats". With other products I would sweat even just by doing nothing! And of course it was embarrassing whenever I raised my hands and my armpits are all wet. Yes I would sweat bullets while working out but not during an unpleasant moment.
- appetite/craving crush (8): this was interesting; my sweet tooth was completely erased during the cycle, but at the expense of a rather uncomfortable feeling. During the cycle I would have the feeling I stuffed myself with food, so I never felt like hungry and just imagining eating something made me feel nauseous (even something I would crave for), so this was extremely useful but just a little bit annoying.
Common Note: all these effects were only achieved as long as I took the pill on a morning empty stomach and as long as I didn't stuffed myself during my previous dinner.
--------------Dosing (EXTREMELY EASY) --------------
Plain simple, 1 pill just when waking up and that's it, at least for me you will know why...
--- Side Effects (Frightening) ---
- Heart: after 1 week of using OECAB, I started to feel a throbbing/pulsating pain in my heart, initially it was just bothersome, but it was increasing as days passed by. I stopped taking OECAB, and after a week I re-started the cycle and kept it on 1 pill per day, and that was enough for the rest of the allowed 2 month cycle.
- Burps: If by anything I left my stomach empty for more than 2 hours after taking the pill, I would end up burping on anything that I had eaten after that period of time. I never felt the "pill's taste", just the food I had eaten previously.
- Rumbling stomach: sometimes (never found the trigger) I felt like if my guts where eating themselves (like when you are hungry and see something you want to eat but can't eat it), most probably it was because physically I was hungry but mentally I wasn't aware of it.
- Crash: Now THIS WAS HARD. The effects would wear off SUDDENLY and then I would feel like wanting to sleep, which made my night workouts very hard. Just imagining that crash I feel now sleepy.
- Mood: People told me I was too energetic, nervous but also very happy, like constantly wanting to do more.
I paid 35 USD's for 1 container on Nutraplanet which lasted 2 months!!!, plus shipping to MÃ©xico. Since I got the most out of the product very easily while saving some money I would say this product would be close to 10, but still I think there is always room for improvement, if this website allowed me to give a more "detailed value" I would score it as 9.5.
As I said, there is always room for improvement, and still for a WL product, 10 would be the "magical pill with no side effects". This worked wonders for my goals in the areas I needed help, mostly my diet, but still the side effects were also something to consider for another purchase. I may buy it again in the future BUT until I am sure I have no residuals which may cause me a bigger problem than just being overweight. Thanks for reading fellas. Stay happy.
First off I am one hungry guy I could eat every HR. This little black pills will stop that!
I am not one to sit and break apart everything on a product, I just want it to work. Others have listed the profile and explained what some do so If that is what you need to know scroll down this page. It is a basic fat burner that provides hunger suppression and clean energy.
Its a pill but I did get acid reflux pretty bad when I tried 3 pills at once a few times.
Now I never did get that strong stim feel that some say that did from this nor was the energy feel off the chain like some burners like to do. It was always just a clean energy no jitter no buzz feel from this, Even when I took 2 or 3 caps. At staying at just 2 pills I had the perfect amount of energy and hunger suppression to get me to my lunch time meal I would not even think about food. Some days I had to almost tell myself I needed to eat for lunch.
I never thought It was really doing all that well for me on dropping weight until toward the end of the bottle I scaled myself and I was down 5.3 lbs , I had finally got under the 250 number. So huge props to that. As for a thermo effect I am still on the fence of this. I did seem to just want to drink water like a mad man on this though. But as far as body feeling warm. No.
I think if you took this with their hyper T2 you would have a killer combo. The whole time I took this I was wishing I had that with this.
I never had a crash from this or any huge sides like some tend to give me, like headaches or a bit of higher aggravated state of mind. I was always feeling good on this.
I also need to mention those that know me and my logs here know that I do not eat clean, so for a product to come in and have no big changes to my diet and still loose weight is pretty awesome.
I think right now you can get this on most site for around 20 bucks. Like Lava mentioned though I suggest 2 bottles to run it for a bit longer to really get things moving. Also If you can stack this with Hyper T2 and clean diet this would be awesome for someone looking to drop weight.
I think this is a good choice for someone looking to try a fat burner that does not want that cracked out feel, and stacking this I truly think would yeld some great results.
A little about me- I stand at 5'9 1/2 inches and weigh about 181 lbs - my bf % is slowly creeping into the single digit range. I am currently running the following sups:
Formeron by Black Lion Research (Transdermal)
I use both meal replacers by EAS and Ultimate Nutrition at least once per day.
I use one and half servings of Oxy Elite Protein by USP Labs once per day.
My macro break down is:
200 grams of protein
80 grams of fat
100 grams of carbs (including 30-40 grams of fiber.)
This equals about a 700-800 calories per day deficit. I do no cardio. I work out 6 days per week.
My current summer goal is to lose another 5 lbs of fat- I probably can't lose much more than that- I'm getting real lean.
On March 1st, 2013 I was 217 lbs. I have been using an IF 16/8 diet since then and have had excellent results- the kind where you get double takes, what are you on questions and steroid use accusations. It all feeds into my ego .
In the past, I have used the real ECA (mostly from age 16-19) and the greatest fat burner of all- clenbuturol- which I did several runs of around the age of 20. I stay away from both of those these days. My macros totaled about 1800 calories a day for the first 12 days of my run, then increased to around 2500 for the last 10 days. I also used Formeron by Black Lion Research for the month. I will do a review on that as well. Starting in July, I had just come off of 8 weeks of DAA supplementation and wanted to go with an AI to see how my body responded.
Profile- It is a 606MG proprietary blend consisting of the following ingredients:
1,3,7-Trimethylxanthine, Dandelion Powder, Hordenine HCL, Acacia Rigidula Extract (25% Phenylethylamine), Synephrine HCL, N-Methyl-L-Tyramine Hydrochloride, Rauwolscine, and Capsicum Extract.
Dosing – I started with 1 pill the first few days, and then was able to throw in an extra pill here and there for a few days. I was waiting to build a tolerance to this. Once I did, then I even had days where I ingested 3 pills. That's the max per day. I took it on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning, generally before a work out. The effects lasted about 4 hours so I would take it again 4-5 hours later, and on the three dosing days, 4-5 hours after that (in which I needed to use Universal's PM Stak to help me sleep.)
Effectiveness- here's a quote from my log:
"Now, I am going to provide some assumptions/facts about myself and make a crazy comparison.
First, I was once 19.
Second, I was an NYC clubber.
Third, MDMA was very popular at the time.
Fourth, I may have dabbled with it from time to time.
Ok, with that said, if anyone has ever used MDMA before, then you know after about 15 minutes you get this ridiculous rush that starts with an intense focus and greater sense of well-being. After about 30-45 minutes of taking OxyECA I get a rush that is equivalent to about 1/10th of what MDMA used to provide- which, some may argue, is still pretty significant. It is very noticeable.
I was wondering if anyone who has taken OxyECA has experienced this before.
Also, I crashed pretty hard today. I felt like my tolerance was getting a little better, but after about 3 hours, I felt pretty lethargic.
Finally, I am always in the habit of checking my pulse. I did it all the time when I used to take the real ECA or clenbuturol. I had no change in heart rate- which is good. No palpitations or rushes. I like that. Don't get me wrong, I still feel "funny" on this stuff, but it's not close to what the old school stuff used to do to me."
Yeah, that's how I felt for several days there. I was definitely sweating a lot and could just tell my metabolism was getting a big push.
Now here's where things start to get a little funny. I posted a pic of myself after taking this stuff for a little over a week (excuse the quality it was taken by my 6 year old daughter.) Without weighing myself, I could tell I was down several pounds, maybe weighing as low as 175 lbs. You can find the pic here http://supplementreviews.com/forum/index.php?topic=25782.15. I looked at myself and thought, damn, I am getting too skinny, I need to bump my calories or I'm going to disappear. So that's exactly what I did. I went from about 1800 calories per day up to 2500 calories per day. After dieting for 5 months, my metabolism was pretty weak, so 2500 calories was above maintenance. I also started double and triple dosing my Formeron- known to exert anabolic effects similar to a PH when taken in those doses. I ran this from July 19th until today. I am also going to note that over the last 3 weeks I have been squatting 3 times per week. This is the most that I have ever done, as I am emphasizing the growth of my legs. I weighed myself this morning. I was shocked. I still have my 30 inch waist. I have veins coming out of my body that I have never seen before. I look great in the mirror, and I weighed in at 184lbs. That's a 3 pound gain!
So I gained weight and got leaner -every weightlifters dream.
Nutraplanet has a great Q&A on this -http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/lecheek-nutrition/new-oxyeca-black-45-servings.html. NP also mentions that OxyECA Black is banned in the following countries due to the inclusion of the following ingredients- Australia [Rauwolscine, Yohimbine, yohimbe], Italy [Rauwolscine], Sweden [Yohimbine.]
I did not experience too much of an appetite suppression. This may have had something to do with my IF 16/8 and my eating schedule, but I had no problem eating what I wanted when I wanted.
Value- OxyECA Black is found on most websites for under $30. At 45 servings, of which the average person will take two serving per day this will get you through 22 1/2 days- with the potential results you may get after 3 weeks, it is definitely a real value.
Conclusion- there were a myriad of factors that have led to my results. The squatting, the change in diet, the increase in AI use, etc. What it boils down to is the fact that I probably would have gone down to as low as 5% BF if I continued on the low calorie diet. This stuff works. I probably bottomed out at 7% though, not too shabby. As far as recommending the product, though, I am going to score it as a maybe. Why- because I would not recommend it to someone I personally know. This is why my overall scoring falls to a 7. This stuff is real strong- not for the faint of heart. I would feel guilty telling them to take this stuff and have them end up with some sort of medical issue. I will recommend it to those looking to get lean and to break through fat loss plateaus if you are able to handle something that is very powerful and explosive. With all that said this will be my first and last run of this stuff. I had good success with Top Secret's Jitter Free formula and will continue to use that. Thanks for taking the time to read my log and this long review!
I am going to start out by admitting my workout routine has not been very good. I am running a dairy farm with my dad so my day starts at 4:!5 and we usually work until supper around 5:45. (with breaks for breakfast and lunch). Since my day is always fast paced, I figured I could still benefit from this product.
I took this along side Hyper T2. I took one of each every morning at 4 AM and only took Hyper T2 in the afternoon around 2 PM. This was an effective strategy as it spread out the effects all day.
I almost gave Oxy an 8 for this category but I will explain that later. I am going to break this up into several categories.
I was really surprised at how well this product kept my water weight down. I felt like I was urinating constantly. Probably the best diuretic I have ever used.
Appetite suppression: 4/10
I see that a lot of people had great appetite suppression with this product but for whatever reason it just wasn't there for me. This could be because of the fact that I would wake up at 4 am and not eat till around 8am. Most fatburners are more effective on an empty stomach so I never ate anything until after we would get done milking.
It seemed like i broke a sweat a lot easier while taking this but I also took about the time it started warming up for summer. Since I work outside all day and no A/C in the milk barn, I would contribute a lot of my sweating to the heat.
I really needed Oxy to provide me with long lasting energy and it usually came through for me. I don't ever remember crashing at all. Since I work every day (yes, that includes weekends) I relied pretty heavily on Oxy to keep me moving.
********Ingredient Profile: 7.5/10*********
I have to admit that I don't fully understand some of the compounds in this stuff. I always google anything I take but some of it was just weird. Also, the prop blend is always a negative although I understand the necessity of it . I felt like most everything that you want in a fat burner was in there but there was no way to tell whether it was dosed correctly.
******Side Effects 8/10*********
While using this product I would occasionally feel sick. It wasn't so bad that I felt like I should quit taking it but I definitely felt a little sick. It was usually the worst when I didn't drink enough water.
This product usually has a fair price for around 25 bucks. I think one thing that hurts this products value is that if you take 2 pills a day then you don't even get a full months supply.
A lot of people had a better experience than I did with OxyECA. I am first to admit my workout routine was not a good one. I would have given OxyECA a better review had the appetite suppression been better. If you are looking for a good diuretic and thermogenic then this product should work great for you! I think that taking Hyper T2 along with OxyECA will enhance results greatly!
In general, most of these products work by increasing body temp and/or heart rate as well as appetite suppression and water removal (diuretic). Basically the idea is to help you eat less and burn more calories than normal, which is why almost all of them have some sort of stimulant component. In my opinion the granddaddy of all these is still the ECA stack, however, since ephedrine is no longer readily/legally available, many companies have attempted to create OTC products that mimic the effect.
The ingredients are in a prop blend consisting of: caffeine, dandelion root extract, hordenine, acaicia rigdula extract, synephrine HCL, N-methyl L-tyramine hydrochloride, white willow bark extract, rauwolscine and cayenne. As in all my reviews, I am not a huge fan of prop blends, however, Lecheek usually puts out quality products with no pixie dusting, so I'm not going to give them a minus since this (like the prop blend in Speed X3) is just flat out effective.
WarMachine did an excellent job of breaking down the individual ingredients in his review so I will not replicate his efforts here. Suffice it to say that the greatest number of ingredients supports energy/increased metabolism. Other ingredients provide appetite suppression and diuretic effect.
I dosed one cap upon waking and one in the afternoon. In the past I have not responded well to thermos. I am incredibly stim tolerant/resistant, however, something in thermos tends to really skitz me out and then make me lethargic. I got none of these side effects with OxyECA Black. The stim effect was noticeable and prolonged without the immediate rush and crash I've experienced before. I only experienced mild appetite suppression and not much overall water loss. Initially I experienced increased sweat but that did not carry on throughout the whole bottle as tolerance (I assume) was reached. I will also say that this is STRONG. I had to play around with my initial dosing as I took it at the same time as Speed X3 and man, that was rather interesting. In a rare display of wisdom, I split the doses of OxyECA Black and Speed X3.
I did lose about 11 pounds of overall weight during the month when using this as part of a cutting routine and metabolic (high rep) based training. Based on body measurements and the fact that it's been over 2 weeks since I finished my bottle and I've taken on little to no additional gain, I have to assume that most of the weight was fat loss (not water or muscle). But again, this is used in conjunction with a proper diet and training approach.
I will also add the caveat that I took this stacked with Lecheek Hyper T-2 so there is no way to tell whether the weight loss came from the OxyECA Black, The T-2 or the combination of both. I will say, that it worked - minimal side effects and reasonable weight loss.
This is the one area where it could be improved. One bottle contains 45 caps which will last less than a month if taking 2 per day. You can get this for under $20.00 online but even so, you most likely need 2 bottles for a decent run. So it's not the greatest value but it is decent. I'd prefer to see more caps in the bottle (at least 60) ike Hyper T2, which contains 90 caps for about 5 bucks more.
I found this to be a top-notch choice for the fat burner/thermo category. In the future I would love to use this with PES Alphamine. Yes the ECA stack remains my go-to choice, but for those looking to buy a legal OTC supplement, this is hard to beat. Stack it with Hyper T-2 and you have something that will most definitely provide you with positive results when used with diet and training, which in my opinion, is what a supplement should be – something to augment your efforts, not replace them with a magic pill.
Upon the completion of my log, I will begin my review spree with Lecheek Nutrition's OxyEca Black. Huge thanks to SSG and all the boys at Lecheek for hooking me up with this bomb fat burner and thermogenic!!! As a brief overview, OxyEca black is a specially formulated supplement designed to enhance both mental focus and lipolysis while suppressing appetite and elevating mood.
OxyEca is typically dosed at two caps per day with the two caps dosage being used only once tolerance has been assessed. I am quite stim tolerant so I was able to bump up to the two caps dosage almost immediately. The way I used it was pretty simple. I would take one capsule in the morning upon wakening and then another roughly 6 hours later often within an hour of my workout if it is a training day.
Now for the details :)
Taste (N/A): They are average size, tasteless, go down easy, without any upsetting of the stomach or burps. That is about all I can say here.
Ingredient Profile (9): My only complaint is it is in a prop. blend and many of you know that I am not a fan of unspecified blends. However, the ingredients contained in Oxyeca black are efficient and well known to induce the claimed effects advertised for this product:
OxyECA Blend: 606mg
Caffeine, Dandelion Root Extract (10:1), Hordenine, Acaicia Rigdula Extract (25% std. min. Phenylethylamine) (leaf), Synephrine HCL, N-Methyl L-Tyramine Hydrochloride, White Willow Bark Extract (std. min. 25% Salicin), Rauwolscine (std. min. 90% from Rauwolfia Vomitoria Root Extract), Cayenne Peppeer (fruit) (80,000 heat units)
If you take two caps, you are getting 1212 mg of the blend of ingredients. Therefore, it's safe to assume you are getting an effective amount of all the ingredients. Now I'd like to take some time to break down a few of the more unfamiliar ingredients:
Dadelion Root Extract: This ingredient has been shown to have a natural, but gentle, diuretic effect. This helps to rid the body of unwanted water weight, allowing for a reduction in physique bloating. It has also been shown to support health of the gallbladder and improve electrolyte balance.
Hordenine: An alkaloid that is capable of enhancing metabolism through central nervous stimulation. Also, aids in mental cognitive functionality.
Acacia Rigdula: An extract taken from a genus of shrub tree that has been shown to induce an adrenergic effect on the nervous system by stimulating beta receptors resulting in decreased appetite, increased lipolysis, and metabolic support.
Synephrine HCL: An alkaloid extract from bitter orange that works by activating the beta-3 receptors on fat cells. This causes fat cells to be released and burned as fuel, essentially resulting in the reduction of fat accumulation.
N-methyl L-tyramine HCL: From what I have read, this particular alkaloid is supposed to enhance the release of epinephrine and norepinephrine, both of which play a role in energy and metabolism.
White Willow Bark: From my research, this particular extract contains Salicin, which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and fatigue reduction benefits. In retrospect, this ingredient will help your endurance allowing you to train harder.
Rauwalscine: An alkaloid with central nervous system stimulation effects. Also a stereoisomer of Yohimbine. Helps with energy and lipolysis.
Cayenne Pepper extract: Induces a thermogenic effect by enhancing metabolism.
So as I've broken down, OxyEca black clearly contains a lot of efficient ingredients particularly targeted at burning fat, inducing energy, and enhancing metabolism.
Effectiveness (10): When combined with jack3d micro and compound-20, my body felt like a fat-burning machine hopped up on rocket fuel. The focus and energy were extremely noticeable and I also felt lighter and less bogged down as the weeks of usage progressed. The general energy surge was also clean, constant, and jitter free. I have noticed my mid-section is more defined and I have more visible veins particularly on my shoulders and arms. Furthermore, my starting bf% was roughly 13.4 before OxyEca. At the conclusion of my log, I has it tested and it is now 11.5%. May seem like a small reduction, but this is clearly indicative of fat loss. Therefore, I can surely vouch that this product is indeed effective. I had no negative side-effects either with the exception of an occasional minor headache that happened a few times. However, it was nothing critical.
Furthermore, the appetite suppression was also quite prominent. I tend to eat about 5-6 small meals today so I am rarely hungry. However, like all athletes, there are those occasional hunger spikes that may come on unexpectedly due to the constant state of your metabolism continuously functioning at a high rate. OxyEca black helped keep those spikes at boy and I was able to keep my meal plan and caloric intake in check without any difficulty.
Lastly, the thermo effect was definitely there as I noticed my perspiration was more frequent. Of course, this also makes it critical to stay well hydrated.
Value (8): As I stated before, Lecheek hooked me up with this product. Nonetheless when shopping for some more I came across an average retail value of about 20-30 dollars. For the effectiveness, I would say this is a fair price even for a full two-bottle cycle.
Overall (9): Despite my dislike in prop. blends, I found OxyEca black to be an highly effective fat burner and thermogenic agent. Combined with intense exercise, proper diet, and some other favorable supplements OxyEca black will surely help in the fat loss and energy department by enhancing your overall energy, focus, and sense of well-being. At fair price as well, this product is absolutely worth trying, but be sure to assess tolerance first. Lastly, do NOT forget that there is no substitute for hard-ass work and that this is no magic pill. You'll still have to keep your exercise routine and diet plan in check if you wanna see results. In closing, OxyEca black gets the WarMachine mark of honor!!!
TRAIN HARD BROSKIS!!!
Thanks to LeCheek & SSG for the 4 product cut stack!! Here is the first review of those 4 products so pay attention.
I will be splitting up the effectiveness rating between three areas: Appetite suppression, thermo/fat loss, and energy/stimulant.
Appetite Suppression (9):
I felt this was one of the best appetite suppressing products I've ran. I run IF so I'm used to not eating until around noon or so, but various supplements can help me get there easier without being bothered by constant hunger pangs. This is one of those products. I could barely drink my water throughout the morning on this stuff and I definitely wasn't thinking about downing any food before my 1st meal.
Thermo/Fat Loss (9):
I had some warmth from time to time on this product, but it wasn't consistent enough to put me in awe or anything. I am usually pretty cold at my desk though and to get a warm feeling is always a good thing. Hell I have a jacket on right now. The fat loss was definitely there though as I lost around 2%bf according to caliper testing done at my gym.
I felt like this product excelled here. The first couple of days I felt like I may throw up b/c of the intensity, but I was also taking my HT2 at the same time. I ended up splitting them into different doses and felt better and eventually got used to the stim after a few days. Overall it would give me quite a bit of energy that lasted a long time and felt great. I never had a crash on this stuff either.
I think the value is pretty good. $22 will get you a bottle that will last you at a minimum 22 days. That sounds a bit pricey, but for a product that I can tell worked it makes the value greater imo. I can also see some people getting more than 22 days out of it if they are not as stim tolerant as I am. A 45 day run for $22 would be a great value in that case.
This is a product that worked for me in several areas. I know that there were many factors involved in my fat loss including diet, routine, etc, but this stuff definitely helped out. I didn't even do much cardio so I wasn't just jogging the fat off. Overall I was very pleased and highly recommend this product. It is definitely on par with other fat loss stims such as OEP & more.
You get a 30 day supply for around $20-$30 which IMO is a great value. For all that you get mixed into one the value only goes up. Most products don't provide you with everything you need to make a good product. That's where oxy black stands strong.
None unless you open the caps, then it's puke city bit ch.
The suppression of my appetite is why I rated this so high. My hunger is normally crazy throughout the day and I will tend to snack. This does not help your cause when you are cutting, and that is where oxy black came into play. I would no longer snack or want to snack for that matter. It did such a good job that sometimes I didn't want to eat my meals. Now as for energy itself it was pretty good but. It as powerful as say oep or ripped juice. The energy was however very smooth and not overpowering, subtle. For me at least. Anyhow this product was very effective.
Great product one of the best appetite suppressants around that I have come across. Where it didnt have lots of energy it made up for with suppression of appetite. I want to thank everyone at Lecheek, dustin, jaydub and of course ssg. But most importantly I want to thank flashsunday for letting me have his bottle, props broseph
Ingredients: Caffeine, Dandelion Root Extract, Hordenine, Acaicia Rigdula Extract, Synephrine HCL, N-Methyl L-Tyramine Hydrochloride, White Willow Bark Extract, Rauwolscine and Cayenne.
All in all, 606mg/cap at a recommended 2 caps/day, but it is a prop blend so you don't know exactly what you get. Each bottle also contains 45 caps so if you take the recommended doses you will only get 22.5 days out of a bottle.
I will be splitting up the effectiveness rating between three areas: Appetite suppression, thermo/fat loss, and energy/stimulant.
Appetite Suppression (6): Probably the low point for this product. I was CONSTANTLY hungry while taking this product. Maybe even more hungry than usual. I may have been able to satisfy my hunger with a smaller amount of food when I ate, but the overall frequency with which I was hungry stayed consistent or even increased while taking this product.
Thermo/Fat Loss (7.5): I was a little disappointed with this product because I actually GAINED two pounds during the three weeks on this product. However, while the scale went up, I don't think I gained fat. I had also started a new lifting regimen and I think my chest and arms feel bigger, so any weight gain may be attributable to that. I didn't feel or really look any fatter, but this didn't really seem to shed the fat off either.
The thermo effect of this was solid, yet weird. My extremities would get cold (I assume from vasoconstriction), but my core would heat up quite nicely and I would have a nice little sweat going on from it. I took some OEP today since I was out of Oxy ECA and I think I would have to give the OEP a half point edge in the thermo department, but it is definitely close.
Energy/Stimulant (9): The shining aspect of this product for sure. This product gives solid, clean energy throughout. I have to admit, I am relatively stim tolerant, but for the first two to three days taking it, the energy was borderline too much and the overall thermo/stim effect was very high. After a couple days the energy evened out for me and it was clean, solid, and comfortable.
At first glance, I thought the value for this was a little poor because of the 22 days you actually get out of a bottle. However, I found that while nutraplanet has a bottle on sale for 25 bucks, you could also get two for 36. Now if you were really serious about fat loss you would never run just one bottle for three weeks. If you want serious fat loss results you would definitely need to run at least two bottles and at that price it's a full 6 weeks for about 6 bucks a week, which is a much more solid value.
Like any other fatburner, this isn't a miracle drug. It is not going magically make fat drip from your body and make you look like Greg Plitt.. This is, however, a good thermo that provides increased energy and drive. It also is not TOO much. I was able to keep up with cardio for the most part as well as solid energy throughout the day. I had some negative side effects from the original, but with the new formula, whatever was giving me issues before is now a non-factor, as I had no negative effects to speak of. Overall, I would suggest this product to anyone that is looking to supplement their diet and exercise regimen to lose weight and keep energy levels high.
I also want to say that the results I saw while taking Oxy ECA Black were not typical. Combined with an excellent diet and workout regimen, Oxy ECA Black was the icing on the cake and really helped me get that little bit extra.
Background: I have used a decent array of Thermogenics/Fat burners to compare Oxy ECA Black to (OEP, Recreate, Hyper T2, Shred Matrix, Hydroxy-cut, and countless other samples) I have been paying close attention to my diet and exercise routine for several years now. (Paleo for the last 3 years) I ate a Paleo Diet in Zone proportions for the duration of this cycle. I do CrossFit. During this cycle I think I only took 1 off day.

Enough with the drivel, on to the review:
I'll start off with results: During my 27 day cycle of Oxy ECA Black I leaned up, felt great and was able to push myself to my limits on a daily basis. By leaning up, I noticed increases in vascularity, decreases in love handles, and striations come out. I started noticing veins in my lower abdomen that I have never seen before! Also, my shoulders became noticeably more defined while on this cycle. All of this happened while increasing my total calorie intake. Ill take that any day of the week!
By felt great I noticed significant improvements in my perspective and outlook on things. Early on in the cycle I had some less than favorable things going on, but I still felt on top of the world. This is something I have rarely felt from a supplement before, so my hats off to Lecheek in that regard. I noticed a euphoric feeling that would kick in shortly after my first dose, and continue throughout the day. Unfortunately these feelings did seem to fade a bout 1.5-2 weeks into the cycle, but I think that was just my body building a tolerance to the product.
The energy you get from this is almost scary at first. The first couple days 1 cap was all I needed. As with many fat burners/thermogenics, after a day or two you are feeling like you need that second dose, or double dose. Not with ECA Black. As a fairly stim-tolerant person, that was a pleasant little surprise. I do want to note that the potency did seem to fade over the course of the cycle, but that is a bit to be expected. I never did go above 2 caps in 1 day though, so that was good, but more about value in a bit.
Taste/dosing: Most days I popped 1 cap upon waking and another cap about 7 hours later. Worked for me. I saw some others doubling up, but I never felt the need. As they are caps, taste is not an issue. The caps are normal sized, so no worried about getting down horse pills.
Value: At somewhere around $24 a bottle (45 caps), this can go either way for value. If you run 1 cap a day for a while, and never go above 2 a day like I did, you end up with just under a months supply. However if you start at 2 and up it to 3 a day, your value gets cut down. Depending on how you choose to dose this, it could last anywhere from about 3 weeks to a month. 2 caps a day for 3 weeks equals just around $1 a day for a fat burner. I think with the positives I experienced from this, it's well worth it.
Side effects: I have already touched on the positive sides in results, but as far as negative sides, I did not notice much of any in that regard. I will say that for a stim-sensitive person, this product could be a bit much. I can see this causing some negative sides for someone who doesn't usually consume much in the ways of stimulants. But none for me!
Stacking: I did have the pleasure of stacking this with Hyper T2 for about a week. Since it wasn't a full cycle, I wont really say much about the combo other than :WOW I wish I had the chance to run that stack. But I did combine this with Creatine, Fish oil, Protein and other basics. I do not think this needs to be stacked to be effective. Combined with solid nutrition and hard work, this will help you obtain results!
Summary: This can be an excellent stand alone fat burner to help you shed some pounds and improve your physique. If you were to stack it, I would suggest combining it with Lecheek's Hyper T2. That stack would be sick. But this gets my sign of approval, and I recommend giving it a shot for your next cut.
Thanks for reading. I hope this was helpful. If you have questions ask! And as always DO WORK
