Ephedra History: Then and Now

The Ephedra plant is a shrub with jointed branches and pollen cones. These shrubs grow in dry, rocky areas of many countries, such as the United States, Asia, Europe and Africa. Ephedra Sinica is grown in the Asian area. This species contains a high amount of ephedrine alkaloids, and is now banned by the FDA.

There are 35 types of this shrub, with 21 of these being from central Asia and the editerranean. Since the ban on Ephedra Sinica, other species are being focused on, such as nevadensis, veridis, distachya and Americana.

One type of Ephedra was almost lost. The species distachya was discovered in Slovakia before World War II. The person who published the discovery perished in a concentration camp. It was only through word of mouth that the species was re-discovered.

The species Ephedra distachya has many medicinal benefits. It is a powerful reliever of muscular pain and rheumatic aches. It was referred to as “teamsters tea.“ In addition to being a stimulant, it is used as a cardio (heart) tonic in the Ayurveda, the traditional medicine practiced in India.

Ephedra Sinica, Ma-huang was used by Chinese herbologists. The branches and the stem were used for many respiratory illnesses, such as flu, hay fever, arthritis and fevers. The roots and rhizomes, underground nodes of the plant that send out shoots, were used for sleep hyperhidrosis.

In the early 1920’s, the plants alkaloid content, ephedrine, was first separated from the plant. The West began to recognize what the Eastern part of the world had already known of Ephedra. Since then, the ephedrine alkaloid and the pseudoephedrine alkaloid maintain popularity for their effective benefits as allergy and decongestant OTC medications.

Around thirty years ago, more attention began to focus on Ephedra. While its medicinal properties for asthma, bronchitis, allergies and flu symptoms were known, even more qualities became known.

It was learned that Ephedra had effects both pleasing and positive in the weight-loss and athletic areas. Ephedra provided focus, stimulation and energy. Ephedra motivated the metabolism to burn more fat. Finally, Ephedra calmed the appetite, effectively suppressing binge eating. These significant benefits have driven Ephedra to become the most effective tool for those seeking to lose weight, for athletes and for bodybuilders.
