Quinine in Tonic Water
Can you share any information about the dosages of quinine? I have been craving Tonic Water with quinine and the bottle doesn't give the amount, just simply says "contains quinine". I have read it is only prescribed for malaria but it is an inflammatory?
Any research on how much is too much for heart patients?
IF it is a drug why isn't the amount provided on the label?
Tonic water is a carbonated beverage that derives its somewhat bitter taste from the addition of quinine. It is usually flavored with lemon or lime, lots of sugar, and often contains caffeine. Tonic is a frequent mixer in cocktails, most famous for its use in gin and tonic, though vodka with tonic water is also popular. This beverage may additionally be used with sweet alcohols, like vermouth, to produce a balanced taste.
Tonic water was first patented in England in the mid 19th century. In the mid 20th century the company Schweppes®, known for their ginger ale, introduced it to the United States. It has been popular in both countries since it was first mass-marketed. The popularity owes much to an urban legend regarding quinine.
