Ma huang (also known as ephedra) is a naturally occurring substance that is used in traditional Chinese medicine. It was popular as a weight loss supplement, until it was banned in the United States due to safety concerns. Ma huang is still allowed in traditional Chinese medicine and in food products, such as tea.
It caused dangerous and even life-threatening side effects, such as heart attacks, strokes, and seizures. There is no dose of ma huang that is considered safe and effective.
Please take care, be safe & well, best wishes.
