Probably: S cordifolia contains ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate). The concentration depends on cultivation & processing of the plant parts. Ir is dangerous particularly under strenuous exercise. Seizures & severe cardiac complications are major problem. Think Cocaine or ecstacy. I would recommend against its use.
