Heath Benefits of Juniper Berries

Juniper berries are not berries at all, but the seed cones of the juniper. The scales of the cone are fleshy and have merged into the appearance of a berry that has a long historical use in cookery and in flavoring gin. Native Americans used it as a nutritious food and it also has a number of historical health applications. It is currently under study for its effect on diabetes, where it is hoped it will be a useful treatment for diet-controlled diabetes. The Ancient Greeks believed juniper berries to improve stamina, and it is also a diuretic and anti-inflammatory.

A supplement of Juniper berries is recommended to treat a number of inflammatory conditions, both to reduce swelling and to alleviate pain. Among these are gout, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, muscle and nerve disorders and tendonitis. Juniper berries also contain an essential oil that can help expel uric acid, responsible for gout and some forms of kidney stone, and also supports liver and kidney function. Juniper berries can also stimulate uterine contractions, so should be avoided by pregnant women.

Juniper Berries and Urinary Conditions

Juniper berries are recommended for those suffering urinary tract conditions where an increased flow of urine could help improve the condition. The berries have the effect of forcing the kidneys to move urine faster into the ureter and then into the bladder. This is particularly recommended for those whose kidneys are operating insufficiently, such as occurs with renal insufficiency or renal failure. However, patients suffering any form of renal failure are recommended to contact their doctor or physician rather than self-treat with juniper berries.

In fact, the term 'renal insufficiency' is now being used for a form or renal failure brought about by kidney disease. If you use juniper berries while you had a kidney infection, the stimulation that the berries cause would have a disastrous effect on you. This is one of the dangers of taking advice from websites that are unaware of the dangers of some "home remedies" recommended by amateur sites.

However, if you are healthy, then juniper berries can be taken as a diuretic and to increase urine flow during the initial stages of a weight loss program when water loss is desirable. However, if you have a kidney condition or if you are pregnant, avoid juniper berries or refer to your doctor, because they may stimulate the kidneys and contract the uterus.
