Were you looking for information about Ma Huang? Mahuang is a common misspelling of ma huang.
Ma huang (ephedra) is chemically similar to amphetamines and works by suppressing the appetite and increasing metabolism. Although it may help with weight loss, it has dangerous and possibly life-threatening side effects (such as heart attacks, seizures, or strokes). These problems are of particular concern for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Because of these safety concerns, the product was banned in the United States (but it can still be purchased online from foreign companies or companies making the product illegally).
