CDC Toxic Substance Warning Tejocote( Alipotec) PELIGRO!!!!

Tejocote (Crataegus mexicana) root, a supplement promoted online through social media for weight loss, is readily available from online retailers. Recent DNA fingerprinting of a product labeled as containing tejocote root under the brand name Alipotec determined that the product was 100% yellow oleander (Cascabela thevetia) (2). Yellow oleander contains the cardenolide thevetin B, which has the same clinical effects as other cardenolides, such as digoxin, and can be highly toxic.

DO NOT USE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
