Ephedra Weight Loss Pills
Diet pills containing Ephedra have been subject to many investigations with regard the safety element and possible risk to health. In 2004 the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) imposed a ban in the US for all products (weight loss) from containing Ephedra.
A year later the ban was overtuned with the FDA needing further proof that taking the recommended Ephedra dosage does without doubt cause a danger to health
Ephedra is cultivated from the Ephedra Sinicia plant and more widely known as Mu Huang.
Mu Huang has been used for centuries by the Chinese in medications aimed at treating allergies and asthma – probably best know in the form of Mu Huang Tea. Ephedra is thought to aid weight as well as boost or increase energy levels.
In more recent year Ephedra based diet pills have been thought responsible for cases of severe reaction and side effects, some resulting in death – hence the investigation and subsequent ban.
Ephedra Side Effects
- Restriction of Blood Vessels
- Palpatations/Increase Heart Rate
- Allergic Reaction
- Risk of Hemorrhagic Stroke
Even more recently a number of lawsuits have be filed against producers of Ephedra based Diet Pill manufacturers for pain, suffering and in some cases death resulting in million dollar payouts.
One of the biggest exponents of the Ephedra based compound Hydroxycut is now producing a diet pill without any trace of Ephedra or Ephedrine.
In summary, Ehedra or Ephedrine should be avoided – it can be purchased via the internet but be aware of the risks involved.

Alternatives to the Ephedra fat burning effect
The fat burner that has been receiving an unprecedented amount of media attention lately is Capsiplex.
Capsiplex is the “chili diet pill” that uses the heat from red hot chili peppers to create a raised metabolism that in turn can burn up to 280 calories.
One Capsiplex capsule is said to equate to burning as many calories as jogging for 25 minutes or cycling for 40 minutes.
