Herbs containing ephedrine alkaloid have been restricted by FDA in America since 2004. The law prohibits ephedrine being sold as a dietary supplement or as an ingredient to other products, like diet pills.As bala contains ephedrine alkaloid in it, (in a very small quantity as in many other plants.) Since the information is not clear so we don’t recommend to use internally specially in USA as per FDA regulations. However bala is used externally by being added as important ingredient in oils like ashwagandha bala shatavari oil (maybe used for body massage as it support healthy nerves, provide strength to body and has a calming effect). And in Sirodhara oil (may provide relaxing effect to mind, support blissful sleep and fight with daily stress).
This herb has been approved by department of Ayush/ Government of India after the proper screening of scientific evidences as well as classical reference by the GOVT REGULATORY BOARD COMMITTEE.
