Betula is a genus of deciduous hardwood trees in the birch family (Betulaceae) and is native to boreal climates of the Northern Hemisphere. North American Indian tribes had many uses for birch bark and it is being studied for its anticancer properties, as a diuretic, and to treat symptoms of HIV.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on birch made available through the generosity of The Actives Factory’s adoption.
