Historically, Cinchona bark was used in Native American medicine to treat cases of malaria during the height of colonialism in the 15th century. The native Quechua people primarily used it to soothe fevers and hypothermia. Jesuits living in colonial Peru used Cinchona bark for heart health support. The herb was later brought back to Europe during the 16th century.
Cinchona bark contains alkaloids such as quinine, which determine a broad range of its uses. It’s used for fever relief, as well as joint pain and muscle cramps. According to studies, due to the quinine content, Cinchona bark is used to soothe muscle cramps, most commonly nighttime leg cramps. Cinchona bark is also used to promote gastrointestinal system health.
Cinchona is the national tree of both Peru and Ecuador.

You never know when you will need cinchona (quinine). I have not taken this product but I am grateful to have found a company that sells quinine and if the need arises, I will take this along with zinc.

I was waking up at night with very painful leg cramps. I haven't had any symptoms since I started taking this. The taste is a little bitter but okay.
