– Juniper berries are one of the oldest diuretics known to man.
– Juniper stimulates appetite and the secretion of gastric juices, facilitating digestion. Because of their antiseptic properties, they make meat (especially game) easier to digest (add to marinating sauces).
– Recommended for persons suffering from rheumatism or arthritis.
– Note that juniper is a very powerful diuretic and should be avoided by persons with bladder problems.
