Ephedra is the common name for three principal species: Ephedra sinica,
Ephedra equisentina, and Ephedra intermedia. The active compounds in the
plant's stem (about 1.32% by weight) are the phenylalanine-derived
alkaloids ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, phenylpropanolamine (norephedrine),
and cathine (norpseudoephedrine).
Alkaloid content and composition vary by species and growth conditions;
total alkaloid content can vary from 0.5% to 2.3%. Ephedrine, the most
potent alkaloid, can account for up to 90% of the total alkaloid content
and pseudoephedrine can account for up to 27%. The pharmacologic activity
of an ephedra sample depends on its alkaloid composition. North American
ephedra species, such as E. nevadensis (known as Mormon tea), contain
little or no ephedrine or other alkaloids.
The Chinese botanical ephedra, or ma-huang, was sold as a dietary
supplement in the United States. It is a natural source of the alkaloids
ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. Some dietary supplement products used for
weight loss and to enhance athletic performance contain these alkaloids.
Synthetic ephedrine and pseudoephedrine are found in over-the-counter
decongestants and cold medicines and are used to treat asthma. Ephedrine
is not approved in the United States as a drug for weight loss or to
enhance athletic performance.
The use of ephedrine, ephedrine plus caffeine, or dietary supplements
containing ephedra and botanicals with caffeine is associated with a
modest but statistically significant increase in weight loss over a
relatively short time (less than or equal to 6 months). No studies have
assessed their long-term effects (greater than 6 months).
