How does Scopolia work?
Scopolia contains several chemicals which are similar to prescription medications, including hyoscyamine, atopine, and scopolamine
. These chemicals relax muscles lining the digestive and urinary tracts.
Are there safety concerns?
Scopolia is UNSAFE. There is only a small difference between a beneficial dose and a poisonous dose, and products vary in concentrations of chemicals. Early symptoms of poisoning include reddened skin, and dry mouth
. Other symptoms include high body temperature, vision problems, difficulty urinating, and constipation
. Taking large amounts of scopolia can cause restlessness, compulsive speech, and hallucinations, followed by breathing problems, and death.
