People take mountain ash for diabetes, diarrhea, gout, heart disease, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific research to support any of these uses. Eating large amounts of fresh mountain ash berries can also be unsafe.
In manufacturing, mountain ash is used as an ingredient in marmalade, stewed fruit, juice, liqueur, vinegar, and in tea mixtures.
How does it work ?
Mountain ash leaves also contain many chemicals. Some of these chemicals might reduce swelling (inflammation) and fight off damaging chemicals known as "reactive oxygen species" in the body.
