Dried cherry stalk is a medicinal plant frequently used in traditional medicine. Although we are more used to eating the fruit of cherries, the stems are at least as nutritious and beneficial as their fruit. Being an extremely powerful diuretic when consumed as tea, cherry stalk prevents kidney stones and urinary tract infections. It also helps to excrete toxins from the body in the urine, this is due to the potassium salts found in it. It is also used in the treatment of constipation and obesity due to its laxative effect. It can be used as supportive therapy in diseases such as gout and rheumatism with its essential oils and anti-inflammatory properties.
