|Scientific Name:||Cinchona succirubra Pav. Ex Klotzsch|
|Synonym:||Cinchona pubescens Vahl, Cinchona cordifolia Mutis|
|Use:||The bitter constituents of the bark are a traditional anti-malarial. It is also used as a febrifuge, tonic and astringent; valuable for influenza, neuralgia and debility. Large and too constant doses must be avoided, as they produce headache, giddiness and deafness. The powdered bark is often used in tooth-powders. Cinchona in decoction is a useful gargle and a good throat astringent.|
