Juniper berry: A very effective diuretic - in the 1500's a Dutch pharmacist formulated a new diuretic called gin. This drink caught on for obvious reasons (in combination with other ingredients). Juniper has been used for centuries as a remedy for urinary-tract problems including urinary retention, bladder inflammation and gallstones, as well as gout and arthritis. Increases urine flow and destroys bacteria in the kidneys and bladder. Can prevent crystallisation of uric acid in the kidney, holding it in solution until passed in the urine. An excellent blood cleanser and can also strengthen a weak stomach and improve digestion. The British Pharmacopoeia lists juniper as a urinary tract disinfectant. The volatile oils in juniper berries destroy bacteria.
CAUTION: If taking lithium, juniper should not be used except under the supervision of a physician. High dosages of juniper berry products should be avoided by anyone suffering from kidney disease and by pregnant women.
