Global Botanicals Responds Regarding Ephedra Products

January 16, 2002

Barrie, Ontario, Canada: There has been a great deal of confusion regarding the banning of herbal diet products and herbal energy products since Health Canada issued a public warning and an industry recall on combination products containing ephedra or ephedrine on January 9, 2002.

According to Health Canada’s release, the effected products are those which contain more than 8mg of ephedrine per dose or 32mg of ephedrine per day and, “all combination products containing Ephedra/ephedrine together with stimulants (e.g. caffeine) and other ingredients which might increase the effect of Ephedra/ephedrine in the body”.

Pure-Li Natural is proud to say that we have never manufactured or marketed products which would be subject to this recall. All of our combination weight loss products and energy products contain no Ephedra or ephedrine.

  • Pure-Li Natural Lose-It is an effective weight loss product utilizing Garcinia cambogia as its medicinal weight loss aide.
  • Pure-Li Natural Lose-It Plus is the Ephedra/ephedrine free effective synergistic combination of herbs for safe gentle weight loss.
  • Pure-Li Natural Accelerator Organicaps® utilize the combination of Ontario Red Ginseng, Schizandra and Green Tea to provide energy and stamina, without any ephedra or ephedrine.
  • Pure-Li Natural Dynamic Diet Duo is the Ephedra/ephedrine free combination pack including a weight loss aide (Lose-It Plus) and an energizer (Accelerator Organicaps®) in one convenient package.

Pure-Li Natural’s Super Strength Holistically Standardized Ephedra Extract is a pure unadulterated Ephedra Extract. This product is unaffected by the Health Canada recall because it is marketed without medicinal claims regarding energy enhancement or weight loss, and its dose contains less than 8mg ephedrine.
