The Real Truth about Ephedrine & Ephedra
Often times, discussions and publications surrounding ephedrine products end up taking a controversial stance. The thing is, the media always needs a scapegoat – it’s much easier to single out a product rather than search for the real underlying facts surrounding an issue. Take for example the original ephedra diet pill ban of 2004; All ephedra with ephedrine alkaloid containing supplements were pulled from the market in a ruling by the FDA that found the diet pills “unsafe” (Read more on that here). However Ephedra diet pills are STILL available LEGALLY on the market with ephedra extract.
EphThere are many forms of ephedra still available. It’s easy to take a product and rule it unsafe, any product can be unsafe. Drinking too much water can lead to side effects, consuming too much caffeine can lead to side effects, taking too much of ANYTHING can lead to side effects – why single out ephedra? Alcohol destroys thousands, if not millions of lives every year, why not ban alcohol? What about tobacco?
Most people fail to realize that clinical, peer reviewed studies exist that validate the safety and effectiveness of ephedrine/caffeine stacks.

These are just a couple of examples of a pile of studies that can confirm the safety and effectiveness of the EC stack (Ephedrine & Caffeine) for weight loss. The bottom line is that although ephedrine is often presented in a controversial and negative light, it is a very diverse and effective product. Ephedrine is also the most popular over-the-counter asthma medication. It is a product that can help people lose weight, breathe better, and studies confirm its safety when used appropriately.
Ephedra diet pills with ephedra extract can still be purchased on the market.
