Ultimate Weight loss: Ephedra is it Good or Bad?


I have had some e-mails come in and everyone is asking "is ephedra is safe or not?".

Well I wont reply to that question. But I will provide information about ephedra, good or bad, and allow you the reader to form your own opinion about the effectiveness of ephedra and what it can bring to the table for you the consumer. Along with any other use it might or might not have.

I myself love ehpedra and have benefited from it greatly.Others I have met at the Gym say they "love it". Some say it gets there heart going like a lab rat. I guess it all depends on the person and how there body reacts to it.

For those of you wondering what is going on with the Ban on ephedra, this is all we have found for the time being.

In February of 2004, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) imposed a ban on ephedra as a diet supplement but allowed synthetic ephedrine and mahuang used for traditional Chinese medicine to continue to be manufactured and sold. This ban came into effect on April 12, 2004. On April 14, 2005 little more than one year after the ban on ephedra was imposed, a Utah court concluded that the FDA overstepped their power in banning ephedra.

The court said that there was no evidence that low dosages, especially under 10mg, pose any health risk. The FDA is currently reviewing how they will proceed with regards to trying to get ephedra banned in the United States again. The court decision puts the onus on the FDA to prove that ephedra poses a health risk, instead of manufacturers having to prove that ephedra is safe. This puts the FDA in a situation where they cannot ethically conduct studies on the dangers of ephedra on live human subjects.
