Celebrity triggers aconite warning

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The U.K. Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency warns just because aconite is natural, does not mean it is safe. MHRA said Sept. 23 aconite is a poisonous plant that is "toxic to the heart," but homeopathic aconite products are not linked to risk. The agency said it issued the warning because of "recent media reports that a celebrity has taken aconite as an 'herbal valium.'" Media reported Sept. 19 that actress Sophie Winkleman took aconite before her marriage to Lord Freddie Windsor at Hampton Court in September
