Was wondering the same thing myself. seems like recently everything has ephedra in it.

"On April 14, 2005 a Federal District Court in Utah under Judge Tena Campbell struck down a U.S. Food and Drug Administration ban on ephedra. The ruling is specific only to Utah, although it calls into question the FDA ban in general. The suit in question was brought by the dietary supplement manufacturing company Nutraceutical Corporation. The decision specifically questioned the ability of the FDA to ban ephedra completely without conclusively demonstrating danger at low doses."

The FDA banned products that contain ephedra alkaloids. If you take a closer look at all these new "ephedra" products, you'll see that the extract is from the leaves. This new leaf extract is garbage and doesn't come close to the alkaloids, which are still illegal in the U.S.

I'm pretty sure those products are still just using ephedra extract = no good
Just save yourself $20 and go get some bronkaid from Walmart for $9.99. THATS the real stuff.

the bronkaid looked cheaper first time so thats what I bought, but the sulfate sucks, have to take signficantly more of it, so then it ends up more expensive than the HCL

Can guaf make your nose runny? I know it loosens phlegm in your chest.

I've been seeing lots of ma huang and ephedrine hcl supplements too. I don't know if they're old products, the laws were changed, or if they're being sold illegally, but they're around if you look. I'm planning to order some Delta Health Products Yellow Bullet next time I get paid. --> 300mg Proprietary Blend Ma Huang (aerial part)(standardized for 25mg of naturally-occurring ephedra group alkaloids)

My experience with the new Ephedra products
I am new hear but I often seek advise on this board before buying new products.
I have had a very positive experience with a product called BlueSlim it contains 27 mg E alkaloids.
I used this pretty pricey stuff for about six months and lost seventy pounds.
I was surprised how similar it felt to the old Ripped Fuel.
I have been using Ephedra products since the age of 14. I also have purchased raw Ephedra foliage and capped it with good success.
I do purchase Pseudo and feel that it is more controlled than illegal.
The crazy lawyers in this country look for anything to sink there teeth into...so most suppliers will not sell anything close to the old Ripped fuel out of fear of litigation.
