Species of Ephedra have traditionally been used by indigenous people for a variety of medicinal purposes, and are a likely candidate for the Soma plant of Indo-Iranian religion. Also known as ma huang, it was used in traditional Chinese medicine up to 5,000 years ago, probably for the treatment of asthma and hay fever. In the late 1900s, it was used as a stimulant and a dieting aid. Due to the risk of adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, Western medical professionals recommend against the consumption of any ephedra.[
