Ephedra

North Carolina Ephedra lawyer

Ephedra is an herbal remedy used as a dietary supplement. Ephedra has been marketed as a product that can aid in weight loss as well as boost energy and increase athletic performance.

The Food and Drug Administration, however, received reports in 1994 that Ephedra was linked to illness and injuries. The government announced a ban on the sale of Ephedra products in 2003. The FDA in 2004 stated that Ephedra-containing products posed an unreasonable risk of injury to consumers, thereby making the ban effective. Ephedra also has been marketed under the name Ma Huang and is also known as Ephedrine, Pseudophedrine and Epitonin.
