DESCRIPTIONFOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY
Used externally as an oil to support muscle health and comfort*
Since April 12, 2004 herbs containing ephedrine alkaloids have been prohibited by the FDA for use in dietary supplements. The final rule states that it "does not affect the use of Ephedra preparations in traditional Asian medicine." Bala is an entirely different species of plant than Ephedra, but it does contain a relatively small amount of ephedrine alkaloids as do several other plants. Because of the way the final rule is written, it is currently unclear how bala may be used by practitioners of Ayurveda. It is available as a bulk powder to Ayurvedic practitioners for traditional use in external preparations.
Bala name means "strength" alluding to its power to strengthen and energize the body. As a common ingredient in Ayurvedic massage oils, it tones the muscles, calms the nerves and helps support muscle health and comfort.*
