Ephedra is a low evergreen hedge with small scaly fallen leaves. The U, S. Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of dietary supplements containing ephedrine alkaloids in the United States in 2004. Almost no new research on ephedra has been carried out in the years since its use in nutritional supplements was outlawed in the United States. Before the restriction, significant research had been done on ephedra's short-term impacts on weight management and its harmful results. Before the ban, research showed that dietary supplements consisting of ephedra/ephedrine had small short-term effects on fat burning.
