Ephedra viridis Mormon Tea

          Ephedra Viridis is a close relative of E. Sinica, which is commonly referred to as Mormon Tea. It's been historically used as a natural remedy for treating lung ailments, and a means of increasing energy, or Chi. It's also suggested by herbalist to improve circulation, or cardiovascular health. Ephedra produces an "enemy of the state" type phytochemical called Ephedrine. It's a miracle substance in my opinion. The scientific research behind it also tends to indicate this as well. There's a great book by National Geographic called "Natures Medicine" that goes into detail about the importance and significance of this stimulant type plant and phytochemical. The FDA and DEA are heavily interested in this chemial and it's really hard to sell produts that contain it due to heavy regulations.


To many people, the idea that plants can be used as medicine is absurd. The fact is these individuals have simply not been informed of the facts. Phytochemistry is a branch of chemistry that peers beneath the surface of holistic medicine to find the source of these herbs healing power. These brilliant University students and graduates isolate and research pharmacological alkaloids that plants create. This particular plant is known in herbalism to relieve symptoms associated with the common cold, aid in respiratory issues, and act as a basic stimulant. There are two unique strains but both are impressive. One is E. sinica, and the other Viridis. Both are useful!


The fact that these ethnobotanicals create complex pharmacological constituents means that human beings are not the most advanced chemist on the planet. We have much to learn from plants, and the big pharmaceutical companies know this. In fact, without plants, much of the modern medicine that people use today could not exist. Mormon tea contains a naturally occurring compound known as "ephedrine". It's an antidepressant and decongestant, that's made from this and other Ephedra species.
