Hippocrates described a syndrome of wasting and progressive inanition among patients who were ill and dying. Derived from the Greek words kakos, meaning “bad things,” and hexus, meaning “state of being,” the term cachexia has been used to describe weight loss. From an, meaning “without,” and orexis, meaning “appetite, desire,” the word anorexia is used to characterize loss of appetite. Cachexia, a hypercatabolic state that is defined by an accelerated loss of skeletal muscle in the context of a chronic inflammatory response, is best described in the setting of cancer but is also seen in other advanced chronic illnesses including AIDS, heart failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) [ 1 ]. Although body composition changes are not identical in all of these disease states, the term cachexia is used in all of these settings.
Tip 21 – Ephedrine Hydrochloride to make ECA Fat Burners – Ciccone Pharma decided to discontinue its ECA Fat Burners. The reason for this is that Eph HCL is now a banned substance all over the world. It is the main ingredient that fuels the narcotics trade and gets used in the manufacturing of Chrystal Meth, Tik and CAT. We are unable to purchase this ingredient anywhere in the world legitimately from any legal API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient) manufacturers. In the Far East Eph HCL is regarded as a narcotic and possession of it is a criminal offense. It is not a controlled substance like other pharmaceuticals. It is a banned substance.
