Go to thepowerstore.com and email David Greenwalt. He wrote up a little book on the safety of ephedra. It is fully cited and a good, quick read.

Ya know what is funny, that EAS (the people behind the BFL contests sell many ephedra containing products! If it ain’t safe, why sell it? Please keep in mond that safe is relative and that one can even end up in the hospital by being overhydrated.

I’ve read that it really messes with your ability to spell and punctuate.

I’ve been having this argument with my wife for a while now. I won of course! but it’s because I agreed to follow the directions on the container to a T. I think the major problem is idiots who abuse ephendrine by overdosing or using it for extended periods without a break. Ephedrine causes your blood pressure to rise - causing hypertension. If you took Ephedrine for a couple of years without a break your arteries can harden and shrink and cause permanent damage. The more I read about it the less safe I feel taking it and I dont know who to believe anymore - one study says this one says that.

I just don’t get it. EAS sells the stuff and then they tell you it’s “not safe”? Why would you back a product line/company that contradicts itself like that. You might as well just buy all of your supp. form GNC too (over~priced)! Let me just finish with this. How many people do you know are following the bfl routine? Now, how many of them are really in fantastic shape and continue to progress with their training and nutrition? That’s what I thought.
BFL=Average at best.
