Do you think of a Gin and Tonic when you hear of Juniper berry? Although it’s one of the main ingredients that make up the flavor in this popular alcoholic beverage, it’s uses and benefits go far beyond, which is why it was carefully selected and added to our Circu Flow Genie.
The best ingredient for detox.
If you mention Juniper Berry in a spa, all therapists will immediately agree that this is one of the best ingredients added to detoxification and cellulite treatments. It effects helps to remove toxins and excess fluid, due to its’ body cleansing and stimulating actions. But again, the benefits are even more plentiful!
Protect your brain and blood vessels.
Juniper Berry’s benefits have been used for centuries, especially by the ancient Greeks. A study performed by the Universite Tunis El-Manar in Tunisia in “natural Product Research” in 2011 concluded that the chemical makeup of juniper berries may protect against diseases of the brain and blood vessels. This is due to the berries’ high levels of unsaturated fats and antioxidants. Another report published by “Pharmacognosy Research “ in 2010 also found that it’s a potent and very impressive free radical scavenger.
Natural treatment for urinary tract infections.
Some of the most popular medicinal uses for Juniper Berry includes combating repeated and chronic urinary tract infections. Used regularly, it can help prevent flare ups. The reason why it helps is because it stimulates sluggish kidneys to move fluids faster, as slow moving urine usually results in infection. Due to the potency of Juniper Berry, it must be used cautiously by those suffering from kidney infection as the sudden increase in stimulation may worsen the symptoms. Juniper Berry can also help for conditions such as prolapse and weakness of the urethra and bladder.
Protects against ageing.
Another amazing fact about these pine scented cone-shaped “berries” is that they assist in chronic conditions where there is loss of tone in the tissues. This makes it helpful in the battle against organ ageing due to its’ stimulating effects. Studies also show that it can assist in the lowering of high uric acid levels, making it a great aid for those suffering from gout, rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, and nerve/muscle or tendon disorders.
