Juniper berries (Juniperus Communis), also known as Juniperi fructus, Baccae juniper, genievre, and ginepro grow on evergreens. They are found in Europe, Southwestern Asia up to the Himalayas, and North America. Unlike the hard pine cones we are accustomed to seeing on evergreens, the Juniper berry cones are soft and fleshy. The berries ripen on a three-year cycle. First flowering, then green berry cones grow, and finally in the third year, they become a dark blue-black
The many uses of the Juniper berry go back to ancient times. The berries have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. The Romans used the juniper berry as a substitute for expensive black pepper, and it was also used for flavoring in England and Scotland, making game dishes and cakes tastier. Juniper berries flavor all gin, have been used in many recipes and help with digestion. But even during the Medieval period before science discovered the high amount of flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants they contain, the Juniper berry was seen as a protector of health and believed to help ward off witches.
And today, while some people may still use it for that purpose, the Juniper berry is most popular for its ability to support the urinary tract system.*
