Alkaloids Alkaloids are a very mixed group of plant constituents that contain a nitrogen-bearing molecule that makes them particularly pharmacologically active.

Despite this chemical similarity, the structures and functions vary so widely it would be very silly to link all "alkaloids" together.

And though they may be subdivided into various categories based on their structure there. Pyrrolizidine alkaloidosis is a disease caused by chronic poisoning found in humans and other animals caused by ingesting poisonous plants which contain the natural chemical compounds known as pyrrolizidine alkaloids.

Pyrrolizidine alkaloidosis can result in damage to the liver, kidneys, heart, brain, smooth muscles, lungs, DNA, lesions all over the body, and could be a potential cause of cancer.
