Our expert says:
The reason why over-the-counter slimming products that contained ephedrine were banned, is that ephedrine, nor-epinephrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine, are potentially harmful. These components can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. So it is better that you lose weight with a balanced slimming diet and daily exercise than to use products that can cause addiction.
