Ephedra Sinica--Ma Huang
Ma Huang Seeds Now In Stock
Today, Ephedra is an herb of controversy. It contains Ephedrine, a stimulant alkaloid used in many weight loss medicines, but the herb has been used safely by the Chinese for thousands of years where it was used for treating asthma and increasing energy.
The common name in China is Ma Huang.
Due to restrictive regulations of Ephedra foliage and unreliable sources, we have not been able to get new shipments of foliage. We do offer Sida cordifolia as well as Mormon Tea, a relative of Ephedra sinica, native to the United States.
