Barberry; Medicinal uses

Both the berries and roots can be used in infusions. The berries or root make a good mouthwash or gargle for mouth or throat infections; while the root promotes the secretion of bile and is therefore beneficial for liver disorders. The bark of the root has a laxative effect. People with abnormally high or low blood pressure shouldn't be treated with barberry. See 'Alternative Medicine'
