Juniper berries are rich in essential oils and flavonoids that function as potent antioxidants and may help reduce inflammation. The study found that the oil reduced cellular damage in yeast cells by increasing the activity of the enzymes catalase, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase. The main role of these enzymes is to protect cells from free radical damage. It is also used in aromatherapy and said to be calming. Keep in mind that essential oils should not be ingested.
