Sidea Cordifolia is an herb that contains ephedrine alkaloids, usually weaker as I recall than Ma Huang. The herbs are tricky though since one batch might be strong and the other you won't feel anything. Use ephedrine not ephedra if you can still find it.

Or switch to a caffeine tab, club soda and Power Drive for pre-workout. Better and healthier in my opinion. See the "Natural Super Charger" article at T-mag by Christian Thibaudeau for more info.
