Products are shipped from within the US. Your merchandise should get to you from
1 to 6 business days of payment including Saturdays. Signature is required upon
receipt of merchandise so make sure there is somebody present at the shipping
location. If you don't receive your item within 7 days, then give it an extra
day or two as the delivery services sometimes are not so reliable. If not
received after 7 days then look for a failed delivery attempt notice left at
your mail box or contact us via our live chat system or leave us an email at
We will then send you the tracking information again. Make sure you
provided a valid email account in your order form. Otherwise you will not
be able to get the tracking or information from us. You can also request
NO SIGNATURE in the notes section of the checkout page. We cannot be
responsible for lost packages if you make this request.

Make sure that the shipping address you provided is complete and correct or the merchandise will be returned to us. In such a case, we will refund your purchase price minus the shipping charges incurred to us.
We will first contact you via email for a valid address to resend to. Verify with the order invoice we sent you via email that your entire address, including apartment or suite number is present. If delivered to a large commercial facility, then provide also the company name, floor or building designations.
If after purchase you did not get any email confirmations, then please check
your bulk or spam box. If you still don't find any confirmations then you

omission or addition of a letter. E.G: email@example.com, instead of the
We are not responsible for delayed mail due to lack of important delivery information that is needed for a timely delivery. Even with the correct address
but wrong zip code will result in the package getting delayed or returned to us.
WHY AM I NOT GETTING A REPLY?
We receive tons of emails a day and reply in the order they are received. Don't worry if we don't reply on time. Sometimes the spam filter will delete it. If you don't receive a response from us within 24hrs, then don't hesitate to send another one. We have been receiving too many emails lately and cannot respond to all of them in time. For faster response, please use the live chat system on our site. Be patient, your order will arrive soon and we hardly lose a package. The postal service slows
down due to natural events such as hurricanes, flooding, forest fires etc.

HOW DISCREET IS MY ORDER?
Don't worry about the description on your credit card statement. All packages and descriptions are very discreet. Nobody will even know a package arrived from us.
We are also very successful in sending our products to Canada, United Kingdom and the rest of Europe. We make it so that you don't have to pay customs either.

All transactions are kept in strict confidentiality and packages are sent unmarked. Your credit card statement will show as T.W.S. for the purchase.
IS EPHEDRA LEGAL?
Let me answer that question by saying that ephedrine has never been illegal.
It is legal to purchase ephedrine both natural and synthetic (Ephedrine HCL made
by Vasopro) for it's intended use which is as a decongestant and bronchodilator. It will also provide energy, appetite suppression and increase your metabolism which leads to weight loss. It will also increase your blood pressure so do not take it with any blood pressure medication, antidepressants or if you have a history of heart disease. Read all warnings before using and consult with your physician
WHY DON'T YOU TAKE PHONE ORDERS?
Placing your order online via our hacker safe and
encrypted system provides higher protection than placing an order over the
Here are the reasons why.
By placing your order over the phone, you are giving your personal
information that can be intercepted via another line in your office or
residence. A person taking your order could be a reseller, drop shipper or
an affiliate making a commission. They can record your information for
future malicious purposes should the employee leave the company. By
placing an order online with us, all the transaction data is entered by you into
Cartmanager, our third
party shopping cart software (verified hacker safe and with a strong encrypted
system). The encrypted information (your data is broken down into computer
language) is then passed directly to our credit card processor to verify the
information you entered with your bank. If all checks out, then the total
for the order is placed on hold at your bank. We do not receive your
payment into our account until we process all the orders at the end of the day.
For this reason we are primarily a web based business which has served our worldwide clientele for over 5 years.
We do not keep our customer's personal or financial records locally and all
orders are kept in strict confidentiality by our electronic secured payment
systems and processors. Click
here to learn a
bit more about our reputation online. All purchases are 1 time only and we
never bill and ship orders you never placed.
MY ORDER FAILED BUT I HAVE A CHARGE IN
Upon placing your online order, your bank places the
transaction amount on hold believing that the money is supposed to be used for a
purchase. This hold is a way your bank locks up the amount that is
supposed to be paid to us and to make sure that there are sufficient funds in
the first place. It is what's called an AUTHORIZATION. At this
point, no money has moved anywhere and is still in your possession. Our
credit card processing company then verifies the information you entered with
the one on file with your credit card company or bank. If everything
matches then the transaction becomes successful. Then the AUTHORIZATION
turns into a CAPTURE of your funds. If it fails, then the transaction
amount stays in AUTHORIZATION status and will later be removed (3 to 6 days
depending on your bank guidelines). So don't worry if you see money "taken
out" of your account. It is just an AUTHORIZATION done by your bank that
is later released since there was no CAPTURE by our credit card processing
company. An AUTHORIZATION is placed every time an order fails but only the
funds from the successful transaction gets taken out of your account. The
entire process is done by your bank and our bank via their secure system.
So please do not believe that we "took" more money than we deserve when you see
multiple charges to your account. They are not charges but merely

Thank to Paul who "talked" to me via Chat and was very helpful and made me feel confident in purchasing from you all. Thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you for the online advice about which fat-burners I should use. You have always been very helpful and friendly. I have just placed another order for the Original Stimerex and hve had fantastic results! I am mother of 4, a fitness instructor, and I homeschool my 2 younger children, and work a part time job from 8pm to 1 am. I have the energy and alertness to function with this schedule, my body had transformed from "just had a baby" to wow, you have "FOUR KIDS??!!" I am a size 6 now and still losing. I eat for energy, so I am a healthy eater by nature, but I have not seen results like this with anything else. I am a customer for life, as long as I am not nursing or expecting! I love your products! And...my husband is amazed that I can get everything done that I do, and still have energy to enjoy his company at the end of the day ! Thanks for the advice!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for selling ephedra products. When I first started trying to loose weight, the only thing that worked was Ephedra. And now, having regained weight last year, I have bought some from your store, and in a month, I've lost almost two sizes, and have enough energy through the day to keep me working at my high activity job. I'm not as hungry as I was before, and I am really feeling good. Again, thank you so much!
Sat,Jul 26, 2008

I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS, AND SERVICE!!!!
Sat, Mar 29, 2008
You are the BEST resource for supplements and are a safe source. I won't go anywhere else. Thanks again!
Sat, Feb 23, 2008
You guys truly have the real ephedra with the ephedrine alkaloids. Not many people are educated about ephedra supplements and get burned by the new misleading EPHEDRA EXTRACT formulas with no ephedrine coming out in the market. I was fooled by others and that is the reason why I am sticking with you guys from now on. For those who don't know, make sure to look for the amount of milligrams in ephedrine alkaloids if you see ephedra extract on the label. Remember that the ephedrine alkaloids in these diet pills are what make it work.

Wow! What great service, shipping, and products. We will definitely order from your company in the future - thank you so much!

Thank you! I received it (Black Ice) on Saturday. Wow! The energy is amazing (my house is spotless!!!)Thank you again,
Mon, Jun. 25, 2007
I ordered a bottle of Stimerex-ES (original ephedrine formula) last months from TWS, and was advised that since I live in the UK, delivery could take up to 10 days. To my amazement, the package arrived on my doorstep 5 days after I ordered. The product was also great, I lost 4lbs in the 1st 2 days and consistantly lost around 1lb a day for the next couple of weeks. As those ran out, I came back and ordered something new to try, Super Go Juice. This again arrived 5 days after I ordered and I've been taking it for 2 days now. Still good, but not as amazing as the Stimerex, so I'll definately be buying that again next time!
Also have to mention, the prices are insanely cheaper than most websites, and also one of the only places that ship ephedra to the UK. Although delivery to the UK comes up to $13, the low priced products make up for that. Totally recommend this website 100,000,000 times to anyone!
Thanks guys :) xx
Tue, June 26, 2007
I will definitely be ordering more as soon as this supply is near end. It (Black Ice) definitely is a great product. I played like 3hrs of basketball without getting tired yesterday. As long as you take the recommended dosage, and eat properly it is not dangerous. Thanks.
Fri, June 22, 2007
Not too long ago, I purchased “Black Ice” and I’m really glad that I did. It is working great! So far, I have dropped 12 pounds ...

Thanks for providing a great product and great service along with it! I have been able to stick with my weight loss goals!
Keep up the good job!
Wed, Feb 21, 2007
You still have the best and the most variety at the lowest prices with the free shipping. Others charge recurring billing and have only 1 or a few products which are weak. You have a customer for as long as the ephedra is legal.
Wed, Feb 14, 2007
This is my second purchase, I thought you guys couldn't do better than my first transaction, but was I wrong!
This time the shipping was even faster than before and to Canada too! You guys rock! I said after my first purchase I was going to be back, I gratefully say it again, I"LL BE BACK!

Received the midnight stallion yesterday, and took one this morning. WOW, this is what I have been looking for since running out of the original Stacker 2. The Lipodrene I got from you fizzled out after a few days of taking them, but these will definitely keep on running strong. Got to go now and order some more, before you guys run out of the only kind of stuff that keeps me from eating like a horse. THANKS!!!

Thu, Aug 03, 2006
7 days from us to the Netherlands !
Thank you very much the order came on time.Because of your company i can honestly say my life will change forever.I know it might sound a little dramatic but its true. I have learned from experience that all the products on your site realy do work. I am around 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 240lbs. I have lost 80lbs and feal like a new man. I probably added a few years to my life , and prevented many illnesses.
Why the FDA would try to ruin peoples lives by making these products illegal when they realy do help is a question that can be answered but why get into detail when we can say we already won. There is so many drugs,alchol,cigarettes, and chemicals that should be an issue but for what reason its not. Shows. Not to mention all the crap they sell in supermarkets that kill your stomach and give you cancers.
Once again thank you for saving my life. And you will be hearing from me soon. Its been a pleasure doing business with you all.
Thu, Aug 03, 2006
This is a thank you not a problem mail.. please do not list my e mail address)
I just wanted to thank you for your prompt delivery..Honest advertising..great prices..I was impressed by how honest you kept your information to the point of listing the expiration dates on your products on the web, so the buyer knows exactly what he/she is getting.
I received my order 3 days after I placed it ..free shipping in the US. I know that your products are excellent in quality since I have used one of them and they work!!! I bought the pure ephedrine from you I prefer to take the caffeine in the form of coffee or green tea drinks and the aspirin separately for the weight loss effect.. used half a pill each time and they are great! one happy customer who was so ripped off by almost all the useless weight loss products that are "ephedra free". I highly recommend you..
Keep up the good work!!

appeals court upholds ban on ephedra
By Clarisse Douaud
A federal appeals court has
overturned a Utah ruling that challenged the FDA ban on products containing
weight loss and sports performance herbal ephedra, making it more unlikely than
ever that the US market for the ingredient will resurface.
Last year Utah judge Tena Campbell ruled the FDA
did not prove a daily dosage of 10mg or less of
ephedra results in an unreasonable risk of illness or injury, and blocked
enforcement action against Utah-based
Nutraceutical Corporation if it were to sell supplements containing a daily
dosage of 10mg or less of ephedra.
But last week, the US Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver overturned her
decision, ruling the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was correct in its
2004 analysis of ephedrine products and subsequent conclusion there is no
acceptable dose of the ingredient. The reversing of the decision is in effect
another nail in the coffin on the matter of the legality of ephedra.
Ephedra sinica, or
Ma huang, has been used in traditional Chinese
medicine for thousands of years for a variety of ailments and is often used in
Until the 2004 ban, it was marketed as a supplement for weight-loss and
sports performance, but a number of recent studies have linked ephedrine
alkaloids with adverse effects on the cardiovascular and central nervous systems
which have been though in some cases to be fatal.
It has been a very emotive issue for the supplements industry. Many
representatives are concerned with doing all they can to ensure supplements have
a safety record that is grounded in science.
Indeed, the discovery that case reports of adverse events caused by ephedra
were not passed on by one former seller to the regulatory authorities is often
cited in support of a recently introduced bill that would make serious adverse
events reporting mandatory.
However some parties have reacted by saying FDA is biased against herbals and
has taken an exaggerated position in the issue, painting all supplements
containing ephedra with the same brush.
"Here FDA banned ephedra outright, but did not prove that lower doses are
toxic," Jonathan Emord, attorney for Nutraceutical told
NutraIngredients-USA.com. "We believe they made an enormous error."
With the most recent review the appeals court still concluded the FDA had
properly examined the facts when it ruled, in 2004, that dietary supplements
containing ephedrine alkaloids present an "unreasonable risk of illness or
injury". Pursuant to this the government has since seized numerous products
containing the herbal ingredient.
"We find that the FDA correctly followed the congressional directive to
analyze the risks and benefits of EDS [ephedrine-alkaloid dietary supplements]
in determining that there is no dosage level of EDS acceptable for the market."
Pending the appeal, American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), together
with other trade bodies, urged member companies and the industry at large not to
jump the gun and reintroduce ephedra-containing products. But president Michael
McGuffin said AHPA had has concerns about FDA's ruling on ephedrine and the
outcome of this case since it refused to acknowledge any benefits for ephedra,
even for traditional uses. "I strongly believe it [FDA] is not correct on the
facts on ephedra," he told NutraIngredients-USA.com.
"If the benefit side is judged as 'zero,' the outcome of any risk/benefit
analysis will necessarily be skewed."However, the appeals court documents
conclude the FDA was balanced in its approach:
"The FDA was not arbitrary or capricious in its final rule; the FDA met
its statutory burden of justifying a total ban of EDS by a preponderance of the
Emord opinioned the court appeals reversal to be an "odd decision", stating
that ephedra teas are available on the market. And because tea drinkers consume
varied quantities and strengths of the beverage, teas can contain higher levels
of ephedra than those found in the "standardized" daily dosage of his
client's product, said Emord.
Nutraceutical and Emord say they will seek a rehearing in front of the entire
tenth circuit - thus 19 judges, as opposed to the 3 judges in the most recent
"Industry will need to evaluate the implications of this as precedent,"

"Ephedra: Also called ma huang, epitonin and sida cordifolia, it contains
stimulants known chemically as ephedrine. The Food and Drug Administration has
900 reports of side effects, including heart palpitations and psychosis, heart
attacks and strokes. Several states have banned ephedrine-containing
supplements. Federal limitations are pending."
As with any nutrient, including water and oxygen, herbs can produce side effects
if taken in excess or at the wrong times. I do not dispute that. Critics of
Ephedra, however, focus only on the isolated chemical components and fail to see
the whole picture. In the hands of an experienced herbalist, nutritionist,
naturopath or doctor, the side effects with the proper use of Ephedra are rare.
Drinking coffee or tea is far more likely to cause insomnia, dizziness,
increased blood pressure and death than any whole Ephedra product. The same can
be said for cigarettes and nicotine-containing chewing gum, both sold without
prescription despite being proven to be lethal substances.
Yes, if you isolate ephedrine or pseudoephedrine from the whole herb, side
effects are much more pronounced or even dangerous. It must be remembered that
herbs were never meant to be used in this fashion. Only pharmaceutical
manufacturers use herbs in this way and, as a result, get toxic effects - over
1000 deaths occurring each year as a direct result of over-the-counter cough and
Pseudoephedrine is the chemical responsible for the side effects frequently
whined about by the critics of herbal medicine. It does not have the same
properties as ma huang. Any claim to the contrary is false and is being used as
a smokescreen to remove Ephedra, a perceived competitor to drug company
pseudoephedrine products, from the market. Drug companies are guilty of doing
just that in over 30 prescription and over-the-counter drugs that contain
pseudoephedrine (e.g. Actifed¨, Novahistex¨, Sudafed¨, etc.). Many
over-the-counter drugs for colds, allergies, asthma and obesity contain these
herbal extract mimics and are big business for the multinational drug companies.
Their effects, however, are clinically much different from those of the whole
herb. Alarming people about their dangers without taking these facts into
consideration is a grave disservice to the public.
It is said that people with high blood pressure, heart problems and prostate
problems should not take ma huang. Nonsense. Coffee and tea are more likely to
cause such people problems than ma huang. For those with heart or blood pressure
problems, ma huang should be taken starting with low doses and gradually
increased as tolerated. For those with prostate problems, ma huang can be
combined with saw palmetto or seronoa repens extract (from saw palmetto) and
flower pollen. This will prevent problems with the urinary flow and help shrink
a swollen or enlarged prostate. In large doses, ma huang can prevent weight gain
and, for this reason, it is not recommended during pregnancy. Weight loss is not
what one wants for a healthy baby. Once the baby is weaned, the mother can go
back to using ma huang to help lose the weight accumulated during pregnancy.
Obesity will be biggest cancer cause within 10
Obesity will be the biggest cause of cancer in women within the next decade,
researchers have warned.

Already up to one in twelve new cases of the disease are attributed to being
obese and this proportion is set to
increase as more quit smoking and stop hormone replacement therapy.
Dr Andrew Renehan, a cancer expert at the University of Manchester, told a
medical conference: "Obesity is catching up at a rate that makes it possible it
could become the biggest attributable cause of cancer in women within the next
Last year, the number of cancer cases in Europe linked to weight jumped to at
least 124,050, almost double the number in 2002.
In men, 3.2 per cent of new cancers could be attributed to being
obese and in women it was 8.6 per
cent. Obesity related cancers in the UK were 3.3 per cent for men and 4.8 per
cent for women and.
Colorectal cancer, breast cancer in menopausal women and endometrial cancer
accounted for 65 per cent of all cancers linked to being fat.
Dr Renehan, of the University of Manchester, said: "I must emphasise we are
trying not to be sensationalist about this. These are very conservative
estimates, and it's quite likely the numbers are, in fact, higher."
The number of new cases of obesity-related oesophageal cancer was particularly
high in the UK relative to the rest of Europe.
Dr Renehan, who presented his findings to a joint meeting of the European Cancer
Organisation and the European Society for Medical Oncology in Berlin, said it
accounted for 54 per cent of new cases across all 30 countries.
This may be due to interactions between smoking, alcohol,
excess body weight and a condition
called acid reflux, but more research is needed to understand the reason.
Scientists aren't sure why being fat
boosts your cancer risk, but suspect it is connected to
hormones. As people
become fatter, they produce more hormones like oestrogen that help tumours grow.
People with big bellies also have more acid in their stomachs, which can lead to
stomach, intestinal or oesophageal cancer.
Dr Renehan said new strategies were needed to help people stay
slim. "We need to find the
biological mechanism to help people find other ways of tackling obesity," he
said. "Just telling the population to
lose weight obviously
