Research Facts
Juniper berries are used to make gin. They have been used also in food and medicines; the ancient Greeks believed they would increase physical stamina. They have been historically used as a form of birth control, and may be dangerous to pregnant or nursing women, or people with bleeding disorders or diabetes, as well as after surgery.
