T5: function and side effects
At first, having studied how T5 works or having seen the advertisements that can be found on the web quite quickly, you may have the feeling that this is a well-selected supplement which is an antidote to all ailments such as being overweight or lacking muscle mass. According to the manufacturer, only one tablet a day is needed for our body to boost metabolism and start removing the stored fat tissue. All bodybuilders are recommended to take the tablet about 40 minutes before the planned training in order to increase the effects of the exercise. It is here, however, where the problem begins. The substance inside T5 which is responsible for its action is ephedrine. Inside T5 there is as much as 30 mg of this compound, which when used for a longer period of time can cause:

In a way towards getting slim, each of us decides for ourselves which support to choose. However, our editorial team does not recommend the product T5. Many medical or dietetic experts also strongly advise against the use of ephedrine in any form. Only medicines used to treat respiratory tract diseases may be
an exception. Ephedrine in sport is an illegal agent connected with doping. For this reason, it cannot be a component of dietary supplements recommended for physically active people and athletes. Ephedrine is listed by WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency.
