  • Sounds like ma huang was causing lots of problems. I hadnt even heard of it before.

  • Yeah, these aren’t your stand dietary supplements they’re referring to leading to hospitalizations.. more like ephedrine. Misleading title much?

    “There was an overall increase in the rate of dietary supplement exposures from 2000 through 2012. Although the majority of these exposures did not require treatment at a health care facility or result in serious medical outcomes, exposures to yohimbe and energy products were associated with considerable toxicity. Our results demonstrate the success of the FDA ban on ma huang products and the need for FDA regulation of yohimbe and energy products in the USA.” < conclusions
