Beat bloat and fatigue with juniper berries!
“Juniper is a detoxifying diuretic that has provided medicine for thousands of years,” says Sparks. “The berries’ phenols filter out fatiguing toxins and trapped fluids, relieving bloating and water weight.” Plus, they’re brimming with antiseptic compounds that kill bacteria in the urinary tract, the reason British researchers report juniper helps clear up kidney and bladder infections!
