Question Ephedra

Hey I was wanting to know if Ephedra/Ma Haung is really banned or is still available for sale? I see a bunch of websites that say it is for sale and that the diet pills they carry have ephedra in them. I always thought that it had been banned and I figured if it were unbanned that it would be available in gas stations like it used to be. I use to use, years ago, Yellow Jackets or Yellow Swarms by NVE Pharm. and they worked really good. I've since tried Lipodrene and some other similar pills that did nothing for me and I was told that they only had "ephedra extract" in them not actual ephedra. There are tons of articles on the internet about ephedra some say it's been banned and some say that it's available again???

Re: Ephedra

It is still banned in the US, ever since a number of previously healthy young people suffered serious cardiovascular side effects, some fatal.

Please don't buy diet aids online. I don't know what's actually in them, or where they are made, and neither do you.

Re: Ephedra

The place that is selling them is in Canada, so I take it that it's not been banned in Canada?
