    I spent some time today learning more about juniper berry extract and the health benefits it has. It is an herb that has been widely used by native americans to treat diabetes and heal the body from a variety of ailments. I personally use a juniper homeopathic to protect the liver and kidney; I actually stopped using it for the last few months for no good reason (actually I am taking too many supplements to fit it in during the day, but will solve this soon). I don’t want to promote homeopathics on this forum, so I will promote the closest thing to what I am taking…juniper berry extract!

    I recently did a bunch of bloodwork to see whether I had an underlying condition such as diabetes, thyroid problem, etc…and luckily almost everything came up rather normal. The thing that stuck out was my liver enzymes; I talked to my naturopath and this is likely high because I stopped taking my juniperus homeopathic which protects the liver and kidneys.

    Straight from a website:

    “Health benefits of juniper berry extract, juniper essential oil, infusion, capsules, and other products of this unique plant have been known for many centuries, since the times of ancient European empires and the epochs of ancient American settlements.

    Juniper berry extract is rich with natural volatile oils like limonene, pinene, and others. Also, it contains tannins, natural sugars and plenty of natural antioxidants. Antioxidant activity of this natural remedy is very strong, that is why juniper berry extract has numerous application as a natural anti-aging agent. Other health benefits of juniper berry extract include anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-viral, carminative, tonic, gastric, stimulant, and others. This remedy can assist in combating any sort of inflammations, including the ones of respiratory system and skin infections like warts, gout, psoriasis, etc.

    This natural extract is widely used in culinary, not only fir its aromatic qualities, but also for its properties to stimulate digestion and fix moderate digestive problems. In particular, being an effective natural carminative, it can be used as a great solution to prevent flatulence and meteorism.

    It also has a property to lower blood sugar, thus being a good support for those who suffer from diabetes.

    However, one of the main health benefits of juniper berry extract is its positive effect on the function of urinary tract. This extract has amazing diuretic action and can be used to stimulate urination and tone the function of the whole urinary system. Many specialists recommend juniper berry extract as a remedy to prevent and treat various urinary tract infections. Besides, this herbal extract is also known for its excellent properties to speed up toxin removal, especially from bladder, prostate and kidneys. Therefore, it can be used to prevent problems and ailments related to the function of the mentioned body organs.

    Juniper berry extract can be of help to those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, joint pains, sore muscles and so on. As a rule, juniper berry extract is taken 2-3 times a day within 3-4 weeks, and the recommended dosage is 15-25 drops in a small amount of water. However, do not forget to talk to your health care specialist prior taking any type of treatment involving juniper berry extract. Be always caution when using any type of herbal remedies, herbal teas, essential oils, herbal extracts, and other natural products for treating any sort of health conditions and ailments!”

    Can I make a tea from the jumper berries or does it have to be in tinture form?

    Raster,

    For your thyroid, was a standard TSH test conducted? I recently learned it’s common for the TSH test to come back normal, when, in reality, problems exist with thyroid hormones called T3 and T4. (I wrote about this in the third entry under ‘My Journey’. Unfortunately, the url seems to be broken…so, I can’t provide a direct link.) It might be something for you to consider.

    That’d probably work, but it may not be strong enough…never tried it.

    Hello SRQ,

    I tested this stuff months ago. My naturopath determined my thyroid was very slightly damaged so I started to take some min-tran and min-chex. It hasn’t been a problem for me and I am basically symptom free now.

    What does the extract taste like? There won’t be any candida growth from the natural sugar?

    Juniper comes in many forms, the extract form, homeopathic form, capsules, infusion products, etc. But the extract does contain sugar…however it may bring more benefit than detriment in my opinion.
