Ephedra Sinica
Also known as: Ma-Huang, Mormon Tea

An evergreen perennial shrub, native to the steppes of Northern China where it is considered to be one of the 50 most fundamental herbs. Growing only up to 12"-16" tall. It doesn't have leaves, instead it only produces rigid, narrow, blue-green branches making an ever-widening mat. It is in flower from May to June, and the seeds ripen from Aug to September. The flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required) The plant is not self-fertile.

It has high concentrations of the various Ephedrine alkaloids and it has them in the naturally balanced state. Its a whole herb, and can be used in the form of the dried "stems" as a tea. The tea is used as a bronchial dilator--very helpful for asthmatics, and like coffee, gently stimulating to the central nervous system. Its not dangerous when used at a reasonable dosage (a cup or two) as an herbal tea. When the Ephedrine is concentrated (made into a drug, no longer an herb) then it can certainly be dangerous. It is suggested not to be used as a white powdered concentrate that can overstimulate the heart! In any form, Ma-huang is not a good herb to use if you are pregnant, nursing, very young, very old, or with a preexisting heart condition.
