Sida Cordifolia


Sida Cordifolia is suggested to be made up of ephedrine alkaloids, which is a stimulant that has been found to have effects including a decreased blood pressure, an increase in pain tolerance; however there is no sufficient evidence that this supplement has an effect on weight loss (52). Ephedrine is a banned substance when referring to the WADA prohibited list and should not be consumed by an athlete.
