Aristolochic acid is made of a mixture of both aristolochic acid I and aristolochic acid II in a 1:1 ratio. Aristolochic acid is highly carcinogenic (cancer-causing) and nephrotoxic (harms the nephrons in the kidneys) [1]. Normally, this type of acid is found in several natural, botanical products sold commonly as 'traditional medicines' and in diet-supplements/weight loss preparations [11].…
