Closely related to cranberry and blueberry, uva ursi is a low-lying evergreen perennial bush whose berries are a favorite of bears, hence the name "bearberry." However, it is the leaves that are used traditionally.

In fact, before antibiotics came about, uva ursi was used as a natural remedy to treat for Urinary Tract Disorders, Including Infections Of The Kidney, Bladder, And Urethra; Swelling (Inflammation) Of The Urinary Tract; Increased Urination; Painful Urination; And Urine That Contains Excess Uric Acid Or Other Acids.


Uva ursi has antibacterial properties because of its main bioactive, arbutin. Arbutin creates a metabolite called hydroquinone glucuronide. When this metabolite is eliminated through urine, it also prevents bacteria from adhering to tissue in the area. This is why uva ursi may be effective at alleviating UTIs.

The leaves of uva ursi are traditionally brewed into a tea and used to improve urinary health

Uva ursi tea and capsules are both effective for delivering arbutin to the urinary tract.


STUDIES here and here show that uva ursi may inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus saprophyticus and E. coli, two of the most common types of bacteria that cause UTIs.

For recurring UTIs, Uva Ursi can be combined with dandelion root (a diuretic) to reduce UTIs over a year .


Uva ursi contains the active ingredient arbutin, which is broken down by the body into another compound called hydroquinone. Studies show that hydroquinone acts as an antibacterial in the urinary tract, countering the growth of multiple uropathogenic bacteria, including E. coli, S. aureus, and E. faecalis.


Uva Ursi  contains tannins, which are classified as astringents – compounds that shrink and tighten body tissue. This effect is useful for fighting infection and reducing inflammation


Uva Ursi is also known for its diuretic properties—this refers to the body’s ability to flush out fluids, which helps rid the bladder of disease-causing germs. E. coli is a type of bacteria that commonly causes UTIs in females. Research has suggested that uva ursi can help prevent E. coli as well.


Uva Ursi possesses antibacterial & astringent properties, and is particularly effective against the types of bacteria that cause prostatitis (which is often associated with urinary tract infections.UVA URSI CAN BE used As a prostate supplement to help with bacterial Prostatitis 


Traditionally used as a tea or tincture. Frequently combined with buchu, cleavers, dandelion leaf, parsley fruit, or juniper berries. May also be taken in capsule form.


Uva ursi has also been used topically (to the surface of the skin) because it chemically produces hydroquinone, which is a substance that is used in skin lightening creams. Hydroquinone is prescribed for the treatment of dark skin patches that develop due to skin damage
