Yep Susan, but I don't think they're selling the Ephedra version of Metabolife anymore.

It's not the FDA cracking down - they can't due to legislation passed in the 90's that was pushed by the supplement manufacturers - but the liability insurance carriers, who increased the premium for companies who manufacture and distribute ephedra products. Xenadrine, Metabolife, EAS, Biotest and now Hydroxycut are all coming out with new formulas that don't have ephedra in them (and I'm sure that's only a partial list). There was an interesting article in the last issue of Glamour magazine about ephedra - you might wanna check it out.
