by Andreea Laza

If you are looking for the highest natural sources of quinine, continue reading this article and find out what they are. But first.

Quinine is the predecessor of chloroquine and consequently hydroxychloroquine, their less synthesized “cousin” is you wish. In other words, quinine is one of the best natural alternatives to hydroxychloroquine. I have written in a previous article about the best natural supplements to prevent COVID-19, one of them being quinine.

In addition to this, supplementing with natural sources of zinc, or supplements is also a great immune booster and prophylaxis in the prevention of COVID-19 and other coronaviruses. But before we get into the highest natural sources of quinine, let’s see what quinine really is.

3 Highest Natural Sources of Quinine

What Is Quinine?

Quinine is one of the oldest and best natural treatments for malaria. The Jesuit missionaries discovered the antimalarial properties of quinine in the 17th century and prepared the drug, which was then called the “bark of the Jesuits.”

Studies have shown that its successor chloroquine, respectively hydroxychloroquine is amazing against coronaviruses, SARS, and other respiratory distress conditions. More and more new studies show that hydroxychloroquine together with zinc sulfate and azythromicin is the most effective treatment against COVID-19. The evidence continues to add up.

Supplementing on quinine can also be used as prophylaxis for COVID-19. This is why we want to share with you the 3 highest natural sources of quinine for this purpose. Without further ado, here are the best natural sources of quinine, supplements that have the highest quantity of quinine in them.

3 Highest Natural Sources of Quinine - Chincona Bark

1. Cinchona Tree Bark

Quinine is a natural extract from the Cinchona trees family. The bark of this tree one of the highest natural sources of quinine in the world. The quinine tree (Chinchona succiruba) is native to South America and can reach heights of over 20 meters.

It has long, elliptical leaves, reddish on the inside, and bright pink flowers. The outer layer of the bark is brown-gray, and the inner layer is reddish-brown. For therapeutic purposes, the bark is harvested in autumn, from quinine trees that are at least 6 years old. Once dried, the bark is ground and used in the preparation of tinctures, dry extracts, decoctions, and medicinal wine.

The quinine extract is also used in the industry of alcoholic beverages (bitters) and soft drinks (tonic water). So when you think quinine, think bitter. This is one of the highest natural sources of quinine out there. You can find the quinine extract below.

2. Indian Tonic Water

Tonic water is one of the handiest and highest natural sources of quinine. Opt for Indian tonic waters that don’t have preservatives, sugars, or harmful sugar substitutes. While the content of quinine in tonic waters is generally low, if drunk regularly, tonic waters can act as great prevention. Or you can make your own tonic water at home, following this recipe:

  • 3 cups of water
  • ¼ cup of lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp cinchona extract
  • peel from 3 limes
  • the peel from 3 lemons
  • peel from 2 oranges
  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Combine the ingredients together in a jar. Seal and give it a good shake. Store the jar in the fridge for the next 72 hours, while stirring once a day. After the time has passed, sweeten with date syrup or coconut sugar to taste and your tonic water is done. You can find Indian tonic water below.

3. Grapefruit

Grapefruit contains quinine-like substances, which in turn are effective in treating malaria. To make the most of it, heat up 1 grapefruit and eat its pulp. Indulge in fresh grapefruit and orange juice daily. Make it even more powerful by adding fresh ginger to the mix and turmeric powder. This grapefruit juice is not only a great barrier against viruses but an immune system booster against any disease. Have plenty of grapefruits and fresh grapefruit juice on a daily basis.

Beautiful article, too bad the mainstream media would treat it like”dangerous””pseudoscience”. All the opposite. Giving light in times of darkness and uncertainty.
I’m m even eating those grapefruit peelings, not all but some.

Andreea Laza January 31, 2021 - 13:06

You are right, Javier! In these times we need to stay united as human beings and help one another the best way we can. I am really happy that the articles here shade some light and a little hope to the people reading. I have really done a lot of research for each of the articles I’ve written for this website. Fear not, we’re going to get through this because human nature is more powerful than we can imagine. Healing comes from within, herbs and fruits are here to help and assist us in this process. If you’re eating the grapefruit peels too, try to get organic grapefruits that have not been treated or sprayed on. Much health to you! 💚

I saw a recipe for a “virus” treatment.
Peel of 3 grapefruit and 3 lemons
Boil for 2 hours in a pan with a tightly fitting lid in water 3cm above the level of the peelings.
Take 1 tbsp 3 times a day till symptoms resolve.
No HCQ? No problem 😊

Andreea Laza February 23, 2021 - 19:03

Thank you for your input! Use organic produce, because pesticides reside in the peels of citrus fruits. 🙂

Naomi March 14, 2021 - 07:59

I don’t want to buy anything from Amazon. Where else can it be bought?

Andreea Laza March 15, 2021 - 13:21

I am not sure about the quinine extract, but you can find red chinchona bark and the tonic water on Etsy. I leave the links here: https://tidd.ly/3eGiH9N

As per instructions on the internet, I peeled 2 grapefruits and 2 lemons, cut the peels into slightly smaller pieces, brought them to a quick boil for a second, then simmered them in a pot with a glass top for 2 hours, making sure the steam did not get vented. After removing from the heat and cooling for 2 hours, I took a tablespoon full and drank it, and I’ll be darned it tasted just like quinine!!! You guys are geniuses! My wife and I are using it for the prophylactic effect against viruses. That is our vaccine. Screw the deep state and big pharma, the billionaires and their fake “vaccines” and genocide plans. Long live the People. Long live the quinine. #MAGA

Much health to you and if we can help with anything else, let me know, we have plenty of well-researched articles here. Together we make the world great again! 🙂

Question. Dehydrating grapefruit peel as good as boiling them for the benefits? Just wondering how much powder to use in a tea?

Andreea Laza May 19, 2021 - 21:22

Hello, Vicki! The bitter substances in grapefruit have quinine-like effects, so I personally believe that any grapefruit intake can help, but I cannot say how much to use to make the tea. Much health to you!

Sherryl Janosko May 26, 2021 - 23:47

I saw the recipe for “homemade HCQ” (boiling the grapefruit and lemons peels, etc.) I did it today and have 4 bottles chilling in fridge. Will keep one bottle out and freeze the rest. Found your site when researching what in the heck does grapefruit have to do with HCQ! Thank you for this article.

Andreea Laza May 27, 2021 - 05:36

Thank you Sherryl, much health to you! 🙏🏻❤️

Holly Stewart May 30, 2021 - 23:45

Wondering if you can use the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker in place of boiling in a pan with a tight fitting lid? It may be too hot of cooking temps.

Andreea Laza May 31, 2021 - 06:57

Hi, Holly! You don’t need that high temperatures to heat up the grapefruit peels, simply heat it up in a pan with a little water. Use organic grapefruit if possible, because the conventional grown ones are sprayed with chemicals and the peel stores that toxic waste. Much health to you! 💚

Great info! How many Fever Tree bottles can we drink per day when we have a fever?

Andreea Laza June 9, 2021 - 12:23

Hello Marie! Personally, I don’t recommend the Indian tonic water as a natural treatment for fever, but only as a simple way to prevent getting sick. Know that fever is our body’s way to signal inflammation (viral or bacterial), hence it is not a problem per se (when it’s not very high), but a natural mechanism to bring our attention that there’s something going on in the body, that our immune system is fighting against. I have written another article on a simple home remedy for fever, that you can check here: https://www.mynaturaltreatment.com/fenugreek-natural-remedy-for-fever/ I also recommend natural supplements for prevention: https://www.mynaturaltreatment.com/natural-supplements-to-prevent-covid-19/ Much health to you! 💚

Jennifer June 16, 2021 - 17:37

I’m so grateful to have found this site. May I be clear though? Are we supposed to just heat the peal and not the fruit of the grapefruit and lemons? I heard Dr Christine Northrop recite this but I wasn’t clear if it was just the peel.

Andreea Laza June 17, 2021 - 12:53

Hello Jennifer! Yes, it’s the peel from organic grapefruit, but you can also eat the pulp of juice the rest of the grapefruit and drink it alongside the heated peels. I didn’t know about Dr. Christine Northrop, but I am happy that my information here is backed by other specialists in this field. Much health to you! 💚

Jeff yowell July 20, 2021 - 02:02

So we couldn’t find organic I know you said it stores toxics but is it still ok to use?

Andreea Laza July 20, 2021 - 19:39

Hello Jeff! I personally wouldn’t recommend using the peel from conventionally-grown grepfruit, because all the chemicals and pesticides sprayed on the fruit reside in its peel. The health benefits come with a load of toxins from these sprays. Much health to you! 💚

Liana Lawrence July 27, 2021 - 15:47

Even organic citrus is waxed with “food grade” petroleum (there is no such thing really), so you have to boil water throw in the fruit for a minute then run under cold water and brush off the wax with a clean natural bristle brush and rinse.

Andreea Laza July 27, 2021 - 17:57

Hello Liana! Yes, even organic fruits need a good wash. You can also put them in a sink filled with water and pour apple cider vinegar or baking soda and leave them to stay for a few minutes, then rinse well and you can use them. Thank you for your input. 💚
