Cubebs Overview

Cubebs Cubebs (Piper cubeba) is an evergreen shrub that is native to Java and Sumatra in Indonesia. It is a member of the pepper family (Piperaceae) and is closely related to black pepper (Piper nigrum). The berries of the plant have a pungent, aromatic smell and a slightly bitter taste. They are often used as a substitute for black pepper in cooking and are popular in a variety of dishes. In traditional medicine, cubebs are believed to have a number of potential health benefits. They are thought to have expectorant, antiseptic, and astringent properties, and they are sometimes used to treat respiratory conditions, such as coughs and bronchitis, as well as digestive disorders, such as indigestion and diarrhea. Cubebs are also sometimes used as a natural remedy for urinary tract infections and prostate problems.

Methyclothiazide Overview

  • Methyclothiazide is used to treat high blood pressure. Methyclothiazide is also used to treat edema (fluid retention; excess fluid held in body tissues) caused by various medical problems, including heart, kidney, and liver disease and to treat edema caused by using certain medications including estrogen and corticosteroids. Methyclothiazide is in a class of medications called diuretics ('water pills'). It works by causing the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine.

  • High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.
