Caffeine and Albuterol Decrease Fat and Build Muscle

The combination of caffeine and albuterol reduces body fat and increases lean body mass— according to a study from the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Their conclusions were based on a series of studies using cultured fat cells, rat and humans. In humans, the two drugs increased resting metabolic rate. The combination of drugs had a greater effect than either drug alone. The purpose of this study was to explore alternatives to caffeine and ephedra, which were removed from the market by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
