The Anti-Inflammatory Properties of Juniper Berries
Juniper berries are not berries at all, but modified juniper cones that have developed to take the form of berries. That has no effect on their properties, however, and juniper berries possess useful anti-inflammatory properties. They are used by those suffering inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and gout, where their anti-inflammatory terpenes, catechol tannins and flavonoids help to reduce swelling and pain by tackling the biochemical causes of inflammation. By normalizing the inflammatory cascade of the immune system, that often gets out of hand, inflammatory conditions can be eased.
In addition to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, where the immune system works in different ways with each, the pain of conditions such as tendonitis, muscle pain and nerve pains can also be eased by means of the same mechanism. Juniper berries are very effective, but they can also cause uterine contractions so pregnant women are best not to use these berries until after the birth of their child.What Are Juniper Berries Good For?
Apart from flavoring gin, juniper berries have many uses. The Native Americans used to use them as a nutritious food source, particularly during winter when other food was scarce. They can help improve the functioning of your digestive system and reduce gas and bloating caused by incomplete digesting by increasing the acidity of your digestive juices. They also possess antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, and are consequently used by people suffering infections of the urinary tract such as cystitis.
The antibiotic activity reduces the infection, while the anti-inflammatory properties of the berry's flavonoids and terpenes reduce the inflammation and pain. Juniper berry is also a powerful diuretic, so the increased urine flow also helps to remove the infection. Because of this anti-inflammatory property, juniper berries are also used to reduce the inflammation and pain of arthritis, gout and tendonitis.
Add to that its natural insulin content that help the pancreas function to be restored where no permanent damage has been caused, and you have more than a few reasons for juniper berries to be used by a wide range of people - but not by pregnant women, since it tends to stimulate uterine contractions!
