Why: Why would you purchase a dangerous substance with uncontrolled concentrations of Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) and Pseudoephedrine online? Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) is banned in us, so you cannot buy it legally there. Many legitimate medicines are sold online only to find that they are sham products. Imagine what could happen with dangerous plants like s cordifilia or ma huang.

Not very!: They are of mixed potency (active ingredient ephedrine) which can elevate blood pressure, cause cardiac arrhythmias, hypoglycemia, and are quite dangerous if you take thyroid. A proper diet is more effective in losing weight than this bogus nutritional supplement!
