Juniper Leaf is a diuretic which can be used to help support menstruation problems and urinary tract healths. It can also be tried to help support appetite loss, kidney and bladder stones and urinary tract infections.
Juniper Berry can also be tried to help support indigestion and digestive disorders such as belching, heartburn, and bloating, and menstrual problems and blood sugar level concerns. Its effectiveness for these complaints has not, however, been verified.
This familiar household seasoning has a significant diuretic effect, flushing excess water from the body. It's this ability to increase the flow of urine that makes Juniper a useful aid in the support of urinary infections and kidney stones. The berries' diuretic action also tends to help support healthy blood pressure levels, although not sufficiently to warrant therapeutic use.
Numerous varieties of Juniper are found throughout most of the northern hemisphere, growing from 6 to 30 feet in height. The ripe blue berries have a tangy aroma and a tangy-sweet, then bitter taste. Oil extracted from Juniper berries is the main flavoring agent in gin; in Sweden it is used in beer.
