Can foxgloves really give you a heart attack?



The bell-shaped, purple flowers of foxgloves are immediately recognizable, but this beautiful European wildflower is steeped in supernatural mystery. Also known as witches’ gloves and dead man’s bells, they’ve been used as both a folk medicine and a poison for centuries, owing to their potent effects on the human heart.

In fact, there’s an old English saying that “foxgloves can raise the dead and kill the living.” But how true is this? Can foxgloves really give you a heart attack?
