For the relief of nasal or bronchial congestion

For five thousand years, Chinese medicine relied on derivatives from plants of the genus Ephedra to treat asthma and hay fever. Ephedra acts as a decongestant, aids in the proper elimination of fluids, and relieves bronchial spasms; these properties make it valuable to sufferers of allergies, asthma, colds, and other respiratory complaints. Western medicine has used Ephedra as a bronchodilator and nasal decongestant, as well as to control urinary incontinence, since the 1920s. Ephedra can, as a side effect, raise blood pressure above its regular range, so the US FDA raised cautionary flags on the product, due to the possibility of causing harm in people with already-elevated blood pressure.

Life Choice's Ephedra Tincture is a solution made from ephedra extract. Ephedra has a long and sometimes sordid history, though its roots go back to ancient Chinese medicine. Later it was used by both Native Americans and Mormon pioneers and the tea they made from it was known as

"Indian Tea" or "Mormon Tea." Ephedra is a particularly interesting plant because it has several distinct but related instances worldwide. While ephedrine alkaloids may be banned in some countries, ephedra canada extract is typically not regulated. Check with your country's local and federal laws before purchasing this Ephedra Tincture. Despite the laws and generally bad press that ephedra has gotten, it can still be used for several medicinal effects.

Instructions for Use

Adults take 1 teaspoon (5 ml)  three times daily. May be used for 7 days, or as directed  by your health care practitioner.


The use of ephedra extract in Chinese medicine has traditionally been to relieve congestion. Because of the way that the active chemical works, it is also effective for the treatment of asthma because it loosens the bronchial passageway to allow more air flow. It also provides some stimulant effects.

The most notable effect, and some would say "side effect" of ephedra is its interaction with how your body burns calories to create energy. Essentially, ephedra causes your body to burn more calories when you exercise, which produces extra heat. This can be dangerous if not carefully moderated.

Using Life Choice Ephedra Tincture should be limited to therapeutic use rather than athletic.

Side effects

The thermogenic effects of ephedra can cause an excess buildup of body heat. This, combined with exercise and poor hydration, can be dangerous and potentially fatal. While the stimulant effects may be especially pronounced in higher than recommended dosage, the thermogenic effects are what you need to be especially careful of. You may also experience less serious side effects such as nausea, dizziness, anxiety, restlessness, headache, loss of appetite, and irritability. Do not take this Ephedra Tincture with other stimulants as this may increase the effects of both and be potentially dangerous.
