Ephedra and Its Application To Sport Performance: Another Concern for the Athletic Trainer?
Powers, Michael E.
Journal of Athletic Training, v36 n4 p420-24 Oct-Dec 2001
Provides a rationale for the ergogenic claims regarding ma huang (ephedra), comparing these claims with data from searches of MEDLINE and SPORT Discus from 1970-00 and discussing the use of ephedra in athletic training. Results indicate that there are many serious side effects associated with using ma huang, and they far outweigh any possible ergogenic benefits. (SM)
