Bayberry, also called American bayberry and Candleberry, is a small evergreen tree that produces a waxy fruit that was the original source of traditional bayberry candles.  Bayberry root bark contains an antibiotic chemical (myricitrin), which may fight a broad range of bacteria and protozoa. Myricitrin's antibiotic action supports bayberry's traditional use against diarrhea and dysentery. Bayberry also contains astringent tannins, which add to its value in treating diarrhea. The antibiotic myricitrin also helps reduce fever, thus lending credence to bayberry's use among the Choctow Indians. Myricitrin promotes the flow of bile and might potentially be of value in liver and gallbladder ailments, but as yet no research demonstrates this.*
