Juniper berries come from evergreen shrubs that grow in northern continental areas, and have been used since the 16th century in herbal medicines. Juniper berries are rich in vitamin C, volatile oils and other nutrients. They are a dietary staple of woodland animals and are added as a flavoring to gin, beer and lunch meats. The antiseptic, astringent, diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties of juniper berries make them popular with herbalists today to treat a variety of ailments.
Juniper berries are beneficial in treating infections, especially within the urinary tract, bladder, kidneys, and prostate. Their antiseptic properties help remove waste and acidic toxins from the body, stimulating a fighting action against bacterial and yeast infections.
