“Yuletide Berry” Fights Diabetes, Cancer, and More!
It’s good for your heart, too.
Few things warm your heart like the sight of all of your loved ones gathered around the tree.
There’s no doubt today will be full of festive cheer… good food… and a few libations.
And if you want to make sure you’re around for many more Christmases, there’s a certain “Yuletide berry” you should be getting more of.
Because it can lower your blood sugar… your cholesterol and triglycerides… and even shield you from cancer.
Even better? It gives gin its distinctive flavor.
Juniper berries might look like blueberries, but you won’t want to eat them by the handful.
These tiny fruits – known for smelling like Christmas trees – have an unexpected tart, pine-like flavor… just like you find in a good gin.
But there are plenty of other ways to enjoy juniper berries. Their unique flavor makes them ideal as a spice or flavoring agent.
And juniper makes an especially potent essential oil that contains over 70 potent, health-promoting compounds. Multiple test-tube studies have shown its broad array of benefits including:
- Reduced cellular damage
- Lowered skin inflammation
- Antifungal effects against 16 species of bacteria, yeast, and fungi. This included the Candida species, the fungus responsible for yeast infections.
- Activity against three bacteria that can cause serious infections: M. gordonae, M. avium, and M. intracellulare.
Even better? This wonder berry can fight diabetes, too!
Animal studies show juniper berries can also lower total cholesterol and triglycerides, increase good cholesterol, and reduce blood sugar –– all of which cause diabetes, heart disease, and cancer!
Juniper berries are so powerful against disease because they contain coumarins and other flavonoids that have anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.
Unfortunately, you’re probably not going to find juniper berries in your local grocery store (and you probably wouldn’t want to eat them anyway).
Instead, the best way to get the health benefits of these berries is through supplements, extracts, and essential oils—which are widely available through online retailers.

Just the thought of developing dementia is terrifying.

Ladies, getting screened for breast cancer is vital. I want that to be clear. Breast cancer is currently the second leading cause of cancer death in women. An estimated 12.9 percent of U.S. women will develop this disease in their lifetime, and about 42,000 women still die each year from it. Identifying and treating breast cancer...
