Visitors: 211

Many people looking for a weight loss supplement or diet pill have heard of or considered ephedra. If you have never tried ephedra then hopefully you will attempt to search out the ephedra side effects you need to be aware of.

Like most any herb, drug or chemical, there are good and bad influences on your body that should be fully considered before you delve into buying an ephedra based product.

Obviously, an ephedra side effect is weight loss, and this is why most people are interested in this particular herb.

Lets break up the major known side effects of ephedra into the two categories of positive and negative.

Positive ephedra side effects

  • Weight Loss
  • Appetite Suppression
  • Increased Energy
  • Exercise Enhancement

It should be noted that most of the weight loss usually experienced is typically through the effects of appetite suppression.

Negative ephedra side effects

  • Heart Palpitations
  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety

Many people that experience insomnia are taking the herb too late in the day and are still under the influence when they head to bed. This can be easily solved by not taking ephedra any time beyond the late afternoon.

Of course it needs to be noted that everybody will have different experiences with herbal ephedra and you may have none of these side effects or you may have all of them at different times and to varying degrees of intensity.
