Ephedra is an herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 5,000 years to treat symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, allergies, cold, and flu. The primary active ingredients are the alkaloids ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, which are thought to stimulate the central nervous system, dilate bronchial tubes (which makes it easier to breathe), and improve cognitive function. Supplements made from ephedrine, such as Ephedra Diet Pills, also have thermogenic properties (increase heart and metabolic rate).
Ephedrine, which is derived from Ephedra, helps in burning fat as it boosts energy, giving you more for every workout. Using Ephedra Diet Pills from Iron Muscle Supplements should bring you one step closer to achieving the dream body you’ve always wanted.

Fitness experts and bodybuilders have discovered that using Ephedra Fat Burners could help them burn fat for competition while sparing muscle mass. This is because ephedrine enables the body to increase its internal core temperature; this ultimately results in a higher energy requirement and the burning of additional calories in order to meet this condition.
Good Ephedra Diet Pills should work like adrenaline, with hormones released into the system that target fat stores. Ephedrine breaks down fat cells and releases them into the bloodstream as fatty acids, which are then burned as fuel and eliminated from the system - leading to weight loss. The effect seems to be increased when ephedrine is stacked with caffeine and aspirin, leading to the popularization in the 1980s of the thermogenic cocktail known as the ECA stack. Today, people buy ephedra and similar products for weight loss and performance enhancement.
In response to reported side effects of ephedrine pills and ephedra-based products, the FDA commissioned the Rand Corporation to conduct an extensive meta-analysis of ephedra’s safety and efficacy. This study confirmed that ephedra promoted weight loss, but also exposed users to potential side effects and health risks such as heart attack, stroke, or death. The FDA conveniently overlooked the fact that most serious side effects were caused by users exceeding recommended doses or ignoring contraindications for use.
In 2004, the FDA sought to ban the sale of Ephedra Fat Burners and other ephedra-based supplements. However, a lawsuit brought by an ephedra manufacturer to contest this ban was upheld by a Federal District Court judge in 2005, thereby temporarily lifting it. The FDA appealed this ruling in August 2006, and the U.S. Court of Appeal for the Tenth Circuit overturned the lower court ruling and upheld the ban. In May 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the final appeal, leaving the FDA ban in effect.
It is important to note that the FDA did not ban Ephedra Extract. They also did not ban the ephedra plant. The ban specifically covers the active ingredient, ephedrine alkaloids. If you find “ephedrine alkaloids” or “active ephedrine alkaloids” on an ephedrine pills label, the product is included in the FDA ban.
In order to comply with the ban, buy ephedra products containing “ephedra extract” and/or “ephedra nevadensis”, which typically comes from the leaves of the plant and does not include active alkaloids (synthetic ephedrine HCL dosed up to 8 mg is also allowed). Despite the absence of these alkaloids, many individuals find Ephedra Fat Burners containing ephedra extract to be just as effective.
