What are tropane alkaloids?
Tropane alkaloids are found in several types of plants. Their appearance is the natural protective mechanism of the plant. Unfortunately, their presence in food consumed by humans has a negative impact on our health, leading to poisoning.
Poisoning with tropane alkaloids manifests itself, inter alia, in by dryness of the mucous membranes, slower bowel movements, and an increase in the frequency of contractions of the heart. Therefore, do not eat the products indicated in the GIS message.
