For centuries, the indigenous people of South America have used various natural herbal remedies to treat all sorts of ailments. When European sailors exploring South America came down with malaria, many sought treatments from the continent's indigenous healers, which lead to the discovery of Cinchona bark as a natural treatment for malaria symptoms. Today, cinchona bark is commonly used as a natural digestive aid and many find it useful in easing muscle cramps. We offer this distinctive red bark in various forms, including whole, cut, granulated, powder and supplement capsules.
Whole, Cut and Granulated Bark
We leave it up to you as to how you want to use raw forms of cinchona bark, which is why we offer it in its most natural form — whole pieces. You receive bark as it appears after being stripped from the tree. There is no processing or cutting of any kind. Please note that most of our raw cinchona is wild harvested for purity. Cut cinchona bark looks like a collection of small pieces of various sizes. It has a rough texture that you can see and feel with your fingers. When you want a finer texture, our granulated cinchona may be more suitable for your needs.
Raw Bark Powder and Capsules
Raw cinchona bark powder may be the right choice when you want a form that has a superfine texture for blending with liquids or other ingredients. The powder can be scooped for more precise quantity control. If you're seeking an easy way to incorporate cinchona into your health regime, cinchona comes in convenient capsule form.
Tips for Safe Use
It's easy to get excited about using cinchona bark as a preferred natural remedy. However, as with all good things, it's best to use it in moderation. For safety, we recommend following dosage instructions and recipes precisely. While cinchona bark is generally safe at low levels, it does contain quinine, a substance which may cause serious health concerns at high levels. Also, those with heart conditions should consult a physician before use.
