The most popular ephedrine product is EPHED ephedrine which comes in 12.5mg ephedrine and 25mg ephedrine dosages. Many people have heard that ephedrine is illegal though this isn’t the case. It is however regulated and Live Lean Today is one of the only certified retailers of ephedrine.
You find both ephedra and ephedrine in the ephdra plant. Ephedrine HCL is a synthetic version of the ephedrine found in ephedra. The ban on ephedra is for ephedrine alkaloids though the ephedra products that are legal to buy are ephedra leaves or ephedra extract. Ephedra leaves and ephedra extract are the same thing and basically the ground up version of the ephedra plant with all its benefits.
