Uses & Effectiveness

Overview

Angostura is a small tree. It is native to Venezuela and other tropical parts of South America. The bark is used to make medicine.

People use angostura for fever, diarrhea, spasms, preventing the return of malaria, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

In foods, angostura is used in alcoholic beverages. But “angostura bitters,” which is sometimes used in mixing alcoholic beverages, no longer contains angostura. It is now made from gentian and other bitters.

The vitamin name from the column ANGOSTURA is Thiamine, also known as Vitamin B1. It plays a crucial role in energy metabolism by converting carbohydrates into glucose. Interestingly, a deficiency of thiamine can lead to a condition called Beriberi, characterized by weakness, nerve damage, and an enlarged heart.
