China: eupeptic, antimalarial and aperitive properties Its importance lies in the fact that the phytocomplex and the active principles that characterize it, that is the alkaloids, have an extremely bitter taste. This organoleptic characteristic of the china means that it can be counted among the drugs and bitters, which have distinctly eupeptic properties.
