Cinchona officinalis is a species of tree that is native to South America and belongs to the family Rubiaceae. It comes originally from the rainy, high-altitude woods of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia, which are located between 1600 and 2700 meters above sea level.
Cinchona is very effective against both malaria and germs. Like other alkaloids, it stops muscle spasms. The bitter parts of cinchona, such as the alkaloids and quinovin, stimulate digestion as a whole, which makes the stomach make more acid. It is known to slow down the beating and make the heart beat more regularly.
Since many ages ago, the native people of Peru have used cinchona to treat fevers, stomach problems, and illnesses. It is also used to treat other short-term fevers.
◉ The treatment of fever and malaria:- Quinine and other chemicals are found in the bark of the cinchona tree. People who take cinchona bark are at risk of dangerous side effects, but quinine works well to avoid malaria and treat its symptoms. Some of the chemicals in cinchona can make the heart beat slower, make you have trouble going to the bathroom, and affect your central nervous system.
Medical experts say that to avoid or treat malaria, you should only use pure quinine or other suitable medicines. U.S. drug rules say that goods with cinchona have to say on the label, "Stop using if you get ringing in your ears, go deaf, get a rash on your skin, or have trouble seeing".
◉ May supports sore throats:- In addition, it may be used as a gargle to soothe irritated throats.
◉ May helps to fever:- Recent studies have demonstrated that it is an excellent therapy for fevers, and in particular, both as a treatment for malaria and as a prophylactic measure against the disease.
◉ Helps with muscle cramps:- Internal administration of bark has been shown to be effective for the treatment of malaria, neuralgia, muscular cramps, and cardiac fibrillation.
