Ephedra was originally used in Chinese medicine to treat hay fever and asthma for thousands of years. It wasn't until the 21st century that ephedra was introduced to the mainstream diet scene in America. Ephedra was widely used as a stimulant and thermogenic. Dozens of dietary supplement manufacturers jumped on the opportunity to add this wonder drug to their product. Ephedra helped many dieters experience dramatic results in weight loss by increasing the heart rate and metabolism. It seemed that ephedra was on track to becoming the answer to the obesity problem in America. However, over the course of a few years dozens of ephedra related side effects were being reported. These reports would eventually get strong attention by the FDA. The side effects ranged from skin reactions and headaches to heart attack, stroke, and even death. In 2004, the evidence against ephedra was insurmountable and the FDA was forced to ban the sale of ephedra-containing dietary supplements. As predicted, appeals from ephedra supplement manufacturers were attempted but would ultimately fail.

Vitamins are nutrients which are used for metabolism but which must be taken in from foods or supplements. All vitamins cannot be generated by the body and are usually taken in from the diet. A vitamin supplement does not necessarily contain other types of essential nutrients such as essential fatty acids or essential amino acids. Each type of vitamin has different functions in the body, for example, "D" is used by hormones, "E" is used by antioxidants, "A" is used by cells and tissues for growth. "B" vitamins are used for catalysing. Taking vitamins in the form of supplements instead of directly from the diet became popular in the 19th century, especially with regards to long distance voyages which were susceptible to scurvy. Without supplements, it is necessary to consume the right foods. Vitamin "A" and "D" is obtained from Cod Liver Oil, "B" from Rice and eggs and "C" from Lemons to name but a few. Two main types of vitamins are water soluble vitamins which are dissolvable in water, and fat soluble vitamins which, when combined with lipids, can be absorbed through the intestine.

In this day and age we all lead busy lives at work and at home. This type of lifestyle can involve physical activity in many forms, whether you regularly work out at the gym, run around after children or have a physically demanding job. From a very early age we put a great deal of stress onto the joints - as children playing sports, climbing trees and encountering the odd fall. Eventually, an active lifestyle and the aging process leads to wear and tear on the whole body and can be particularly noticeable in the joints. It's a fact of life that as we get older our joints and spine (spinal joints - known as facet joints) are more likely to suffer aches and pains. In the UK it's estimated that around eight million people have some form of Arthritis and that one in three people will suffer with arthritis at some point in their lives. Did you know there are actually around 200 different kinds of arthritis, which means inflammation of the joints and spinal joints, with the most common being osteoarthritis.
