Quinine, named Cinchona officinalis in the scientific world, belongs to the Rubiaceae family.
Quinine is extracted from the bark of the cinchona (Quina Quina) tree. It was properly named long after its medicinal attributes were discovered and were commonly referred to as Jesuits' bark, cardinal's bark, or sacred bark.
The bark from the chinchona is first dried and then powdered before using it as a medicine. This bitter compound extracted from cinchona bark is largely found in South America, Central America, the Islands of the Caribbean, and in a few western coastal areas of Africa.
Quinine largely became popular in the 16th century for its parasite-killing properties during the malaria outbreak. The discovery of quinine by the Quechua people was entirely accidental and proved life-saving during the malaria epidemics throughout history.

Quinine was used largely by the indigenous people to treat fevers, upset stomachs, and diarrhea.
In the modern world, quinine is primarily known for its anti-malarial properties. During the 1600s and then in World War II, quinine was known to be the only drug available that could cure malaria.
The discovery story of quinine differs greatly. According to one widely believed legend, it was discovered accidentally by a feverish Native Indian lost in an Andean jungle. Mislaid and thirsty, he took a drink from a stagnant pool and found it bitter. The surrounding Quina Quina trees made him suspect that the water was contaminated and he had been poisoned. Shockingly, his fever abated. Gradually, this knowledge spread and quinine was begin to be used as a natural medicine for different types of fevers.

Havent used it yet but stay tuned
Quinine provides me with a great calming effect I love it.
I got both forms of quinine. The capsules for my husband and I to take and the liquid form for my kids. I love that the tincture does not contain any alcohol which was the reason that I purchased from this company. I keep coming back for more products
No bad taste at all. I just hope it works
