It has been used in China for more than 5000 years
to treat symptoms of asthma and upper respiratory
infections. Varieties of the herb are also grown
in Europe, India, Australia and Afghanistan. American
ephedra, native to the dry southwest, was used as
tea by the early settlers, and was known as "Mormon
tea" and "Squaw tea." It has also been used in the
treatment of headaches, fevers, colds and hay fever.
Today, compounds derived from this herb are commonly
found in many over-the-counter cold and allergy medications.
Ephedra contains two alkaloids, ephedrine and pseudoephedrine.
Ephedrine, the main constituent, is a bronchodilator and
stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. It has valuable
antispasmodic properties, acting on the air passages by
relieving swellings of the mucous membrane. Pseudoephedrine
is a nasal decongestant and has less stimulating effect
on the heart and blood pressure. Physicians use these alkaloids
to treat bronchial asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, persistent
coughs, wheezing and shortness of breath. Ma Huang can
help the body to break fevers and clear blocked sinuses.
The alkaloids are also effective in treating allergic skin
reactions such as hives, relieve general body pain and
treat low blood pressure, rheumatism and narcolepsy.
Because of its stimulating effect on the nervous system,
ephedra can be found in some popular weight loss, energy
product & fat burner. For dieters it suppresses the appetite
and stimulates the thyroid gland which stimulates metabolism.
Recently Ma Huang has been the subject of scientific research
for obesity because of its thermogenic fat-burning effect
on dietary intake. Ephedra can cause peripheral vasoconstriction,
elevation of blood pressure and cardiac stimulation, and
is often combined with other tonic herbs to help counteract
these effects. Please pay attention to the large red letters
that read sold out. If you still place a order for this
product even after reading that you must be an idiot.
Ma Huang is also found in "energy" products
that may give athletes extra energy without draining their
reserves. People also indicate an increase in alertness
and perception. Similar to the diet formulas, it is often
combined with ingredients such as kola nut or guarana which
contain caffeine. Concerns over the potency of this herb
and its isolated alkaloids have prompted increased regulatory
scrutiny and industry label warnings. Contraindications
and possible side effects should be listed on the bottle.
Contraindications include general weakness, poor digestion,
high blood pressure, nervousness, sleeplessness, cardiac
arrhythmia's and heart disease. It should not be used if
you are pregnant or nursing.
