Ma Huang

Ma Huang A popular herb that has been used for over 5,000 years is found in the product Lipodrene. Ma Huang was used by the ancient Chinese people as a decongestant, antihistamine, and to treat respiratory ailments such as asthma. Ephedrine consists of only 8% of the Herb on average and has been shown to contain powerful fat burning characteristics which can enhance thermogenesis, the body’s burning of fat for energy. A natural energizer, this is the reason why so many popular diet drugs today contain Ephedrine in some form.

The active ingredient in Ma Huang is Ephedrine, which reduces the appetite while stimulating fat metabolism. It increases the basal metabolic rate, which allows your body to burn calories faster and more efficiently. By mobilizing stored fat and carbohydrate reserves, Ma Huang works to reduce your appetite and aids in helping you lose excess weight. It can also assist in helping you keep a clear mind, helpful when dieting.

Unless you are certain that the supplement you are taking is standardized for ephedrine content, there is no way to know for sure that you are getting a high quality 8% standardised supplement. Read package ingredients and labels carefully when buying this or any all natural supplement. Zenalean Pro is a high quality ma huang diet supplement that is currently available.
