About Ephedra Sinica ("Ma Huang") and Related Supplements

Ephedra is an alkaloid chemical compound traditionally obtained from the plant Ephedra Sinica, (otherwise known in the Chinese language as Ma Huang). It is a plant based substance used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 5,000 years, often used in the treatment of various respiratory, cold and hay fever related conditions. In more recent times, Ephedra has also been utilized extensively around the world as a performance-enhancing substance, which is now prohibited in most competitive sports events, as well as for a non-prescription weight loss supplement. In addition, various derivatives of Ephedra have since been synthesized to treat low blood pressure.

In response to reported side effects of Ephedra, the FDA commissioned the Rand Corporation to conduct an extensive meta-analysis of Ephedra's safety and efficacy. This study confirmed that Ephedra promoted weight loss, but also exposed users to potential side effects and health risks such as heart attack, stroke or death. The FDA later proposed a ruling that would limit the sale of Ephedra products containing 8 mg or more of ephedrine alkaloids, as well as require stricter labeling that warns of potential side effects and health risks. In 2004, the FDA sought to ban the sale of Ephedra based supplements, though a lawsuit brought by an Ephedra manufacturer to mitigate this ban was upheld by a Federal District Court judge in 2005, pending further actions of the Court.

Ephedra Outlet fully supports the FDA's position on the sale of Ephedra products being limited to low-doses of ephedrine alkaloids, as well as advancing the requirement for all manufacturers to provide full disclosure of potential side effects and health risks. In keeping with the foregoing, Ephedra Outlet is taking the formative step of adding appropriate disclosures for consumers to limit daily consumption of products containing Ephedra, and further only offering such products to qualified adult purchasers who strictly adhere to the terms, conditions, warranties and representations required for use of this Site.
