Ma huang (ephedra) used to be a common weight loss pill, until it was banned due to safety concerns. The supplement is chemically similar to amphetamines, which may help to suppress the appetite and increase metabolism.
 
However, the product was banned in the United States after reports that it caused dangerous side effects, such as heart attacks, strokes, and seizures. Despite these safety concerns, the supplement is still allowed in traditional Chinese medicine. It is also allowed in tea and other food products.
