Ma huang is traditionally used to treat bronchial asthma, cold and flu, chills, lack of perspiration, headache, nasal congestion, aching joints and bones, coughing, wheezing, and edema.

We do offer Sida cordifolia, another plant containing ephedra alkaloids as well as Mormon Tea, a relative of Ephedra sinica, native to the United States, though.
