I doubt it. Most of the supplements sold in the UAE are from the well known names which don't contain ephedra. Supplements are pretty controlled and many things aren't available - you can't even get melatonin (or at least you couldn't when I was there).

There is a store on the ground floor of Dubai mall. If you ask they sometimes find things that aren't on display, or know where you can get them

thanks so much...Ive never been to Dubai yet..I am in KSA and will be there for Eid so I was hoping to know the places beforehand. It is Ephedra Extract I am looking for...not Ephedra. Ephedra extract is approved in the US.

I would guess that they don't know the difference here and you'll probably find you won't be able to find anything. But as I said, sometimes places that sell supplements here manage to find things that aren't on display

I don't know offhand where most supplements are imported from, but I'm guessing it's Europe so if you know particular brands you could go in and ask. Can you get it in KSA?

Ephedra extract prevents the human body from losing heat and in some cases it even lead to the occurrence of heat stroke. Certain other side effects of ephedra extract may include anxiety, increased urination, psychosis, sweating, high blood pressure, flushing, irregular heart rhythms, insomnia, heart damage, nervousness, headache, restlessness, dizziness, dry mouth, tremors, decreased appetite and irritation of the stomach, kidney stones, diarrhea and nausea. The use of ephedra should be avoided by children, pregnant women, breastfeeding women, people who suffer from metabolic disorders, people who suffer from kidney disorders and people who suffer from heart disorders.

Useful info. There are plenty of warnings out there. Google the Jon Gabriel Method for weight loss info. If you want to do it quickly but healthily, look for Reboot with Joe.
