With origins in Europe, Africa and Asia, the barberry plant has been used in ancient traditional medicine for medicinal and culinary purposes. The plant has been used in Ayurvedic, traditional Chinese and Native American medicines, as well as, Western herbalism, for over 2,500 years.
Barberry bark may help stimulate the immune system by activating white blood cells that kill harmful microorganisms. With antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, the bark can help prevent bacteria from holding on to human cells.
The bark has been used as a mild laxative which is good for constipation. It is also said to clear bacterial diarrhoea without side effects.
Antibacterial action helps fight bacterial urinary tract infections (UTIs) and can help soothe an inflamed urinary tract due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
