Product Details

One half ounce, whole leaf.100% Certified USDA Organic & Kosher.

Uva Ursi Leaf (Arctostaphylos uva ursi), also known as bearberry, has a rich history of use with Native Americans using Uva Ursi to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) and bladder ailments. Its leaves were brewed into a tea or poultice and applied topically for its antiseptic properties. In Europe, Uva Ursi gained recognition and remained a common treatment for bladder issues until the discovery of antibiotics.

Medicinally, Uva Ursi's primary use today is to address UTIs and bladder infections. The leaves contain a compound called arbutin, which converts to hydroquinone in the body. Hydroquinone has a mild antibiotic effect that helps fight bacteria in the urinary tract. However, it's important to note that Uva Ursi can have side effects and should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.

Uva Ursi has been associated with protection, purification, and fertility. Some practitioners use Uva Ursi leaves in charms and amulets to ward off negativity and promote good health.
