Health Benefits of Juniper Berries

Common juniper is a small evergreen tree that is related to cedar, cypress and other conifers. The mature, dark-colored cones, or berries, are used to lend a slightly citrus and pine-like flavor to foods and beverages. Health benefits include: 

  • As a powerful diuretic, it increases the flow of urine, helping to cleanse the system of excess fluids and stimulating the kidneys.
  • Helps treat urinary tract infections.
  • Stimulates bowel movements to relieve constipation.
  • Contains bitter compounds that stimulate bile flow and the production of digestive enzymes. This allows the body to breakdown foods more easily and enhances nutrient absorption.
  • Due to their astringent properties they are particularly effective at relieving heartburn and other digestive upsets.
  • Juniper can also be useful in the treatment of upset stomach, colitis, gastrointestinal infections, loss of appetite and intestinal worms.
  • Rich in antioxidants.  
  • Contains certain compounds that increase insulin production, thus lowering blood sugar levels.
