Q Years ago I used a thermogenic tea and a product called WOW to help me lose weight. I can’t remember the name of the tea product. What I do remember is that I bought these products through a multilevel marketing company that is no longer in business. Can you tell me what the tea is and if it’s still available?

A The weight-loss tea was Thermogen Tea, or Starter’s Tea, or First Course (depending on the source), but unfortunately, it is no longer available. Its principal component was ephedra, which has been banned by the FDA for political reasons. Ephedra expert Arne Astrup, M.D., Ph.D., in congressional testimony, has stated that ephedrine (the active ingredient in ephedra) is the safest and most effective weight-loss agent.

WOW is still available, you’ll be glad to know.
