 The barberry is a thornbush that grows in many areas of Albanian lands and offers many health benefits.

Experts say the barberry contains a chemical known as berberine that fights inflammation, lowers blood pressure and has a calming effect.

Berberis vulgaris (Barberry) belongs to the family Berberidaceae. It is widespread in forests, pastures and rocky shrubs.

It generally extends to high mountainous areas such as the top of Çardak, the Holy Mountain (Mirdita), the Dry Mountain, Korab, Cermenica and many other mountains in Albania, Kosovo, and North Macedonia.

Based on studies conducted by biologists it turns out that this it is a rare plant and therefore requires individual protection, according to agroweb.

For a strong heart
The barberry's chemical constituents protect the heart from ischemia caused by tissue damage that occurs when blood begins to circulate normally after lack of oxygen.

Berbamine, one of these components regulates the level of calcium ions within cells. It prevents the activation of a protein called calpain, which has a central role in heart attack.

Berbamine increases cells' sensitivity to calcium, a mineral that regulates muscle contraction. Experts recommend that you consult a physician before using the barberry.

Against diarrhea
Barberry protects the liver but also helps treat diarrhea, especially that caused by food poisoning.

Studies have shown that the barberry relieves symptoms faster than antibiotics, but the latter are more potent in eliminating bacteria.

Since diarrhea bacteria have serious consequences, it is recommended that antibiotics be coupled with the barberry for a better quality cure.

However, you should consult a physician before taking this step. This is because the barberry is likely to diminish the efficacy of antibiotics.

Against skin infections and disorders
The barberry is used to relieve inflammation and infections in the gastrointestinal, respiratory and urinary tracts. The herb is also used against mold on the skin or genitals.

Its extracts relieve the symptoms of acne or psoriasis. But further scientific studies are needed to confirm these claims.

How to prepare barberry tea
The root of the barberry has been traditionally used in folk medicine to alleviate the symptoms of diarrhea, stomach problems and fever.

Applications to the skin of the root of the barberry alleviate inflammation and skin problems such as psoriasis. However, further scientific studies are needed.

The root bark and dried fruits of the plant are used as medicinal preparations. The barberry has laxative, diuretic, choleric, spasmolytic properties.

It is used in kidney disease, kidney stones, urinary tract inflammation (on doctor's advice).

Overdose can damage the kidneys and may cause drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. The fruits are used in the preparation of vitamin C-rich teas.
