Executive Summary

Randomized, placebo-controlled, dual-arm study of 67 people published in March International Journal of Obesity shows ma huang/guarana combination supplement is efficacious with minimal side effects. Active arm, which took 72 mg ephedrine alkaloids and 240 mg caffeine daily for eight weeks, averaged a 4 kg weight reduction and a 3.5% body fat loss. Led by Carol Boozer, Columbia University, et al., the trial indicates further study on long-term use of the product is warranted, researchers say. Boozer, along with Patricia Daly, MD, also authored a study using ma huang/kola nut that was part of the recent Cantox Health Sciences report commissioned by CRN (1"The Tan Sheet" Jan 1, pp. 3-4)
