Jamaican Cerasee; A Good Guy In A Mask
By Kesha Stewart | Associate Writer
There is a notoriously bitter Jamaican bush (herbal remedy) we love to hate. There is no school age child who does not know how unpleasant it tastes and no Jamaican parent who doesn’t sing its praises.
Speaking of sing, the healing properties of this plant is captured in the folk song “Elena”.
So is Cerasse as bad as it is bitter, or are we giving it a bad name?

Long before COVID-19 forced us to wear facial masks to reduce transmission of the virus, the Jamaica Cerasee was masking its benefits behind a very bitter taste.
Yes, in the case of Cerasse, bitter is good.
As a matter of fact, there is great evidence to suggest that Cerasse makes it a great addition to your herbal cabinet.
This native of Africa, The Middle East, and the Caribbean is now found all over the world. And by the way, the fruit it produces (called bitter lemon) is included in several Indian and Chinese dishes; I was introduced to it as an accompaniment to salt fish (cod fish) when I visited Trinidad and Tobago in 2016.
Bitter lemon extracts are excellent for maintaining healthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels
For your convenience, in Jamaica, you can purchase Cerasee as a tea bag at your favorite supermarket, market or health food store.
Outside of the island, I'd suggest you stop by any Jamaican or Caribbean supermarket or food store and simply brew according to the instructions.
If you prefer to concoct your own healing brew, the raw option is quite simple and easy.
Be sure to use Cerasse in moderation though. If used continuously over a short period of time, its robust diuretic properties can dehydrate the body.
It is recommended that you consume for no more than seven (7) consecutive days. Give yourself a break of several days before resuming.
Cerasse’s many therapeutic benefits originate from its rich antioxidant and poly-phenol content.
So brew a cup, hold your breath (or your nose) and chug it down once a day for the next seven (7) days, your body will love it, even if your taste buds doesn't.
