    The basics

    Uva Ursi, also known as bearberry, is a plant known for its therapeutic properties. Its leaves, which contain the active component arbutin, are widely used in traditional medicine to treat urinary tract infections and kidney infections and reduce inflammation. The supplement has shown promising antibacterial effects against a broad spectrum of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus.

    The need to know

    What are the benefits?

    Cystitis relief

    • Reduces inflammation and poor gut health
    • Good for recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
    • Natural herbal antibiotic

    The Science

    Uva Ursi's antimicrobial activity primarily comes from a compound called arbutin. Arbutin prevents bacteria from adhering to the tissues they target, a mechanism of action similar to procyanidins found in cranberries, widely used for urinary tract infections (UTIs).

    Upon ingestion, arbutin is metabolized into hydroquinone, a compound that accumulates within bacterial cells, thus contributing to Uva Ursi's therapeutic effects. This antibacterial activity is essential for managing urinary tract infections and promoting urinary health.

    In addition, arbutin has been used in skin care due to its ability to inhibit melanin production by blocking the enzyme tyrosinase. However, the effects are less pronounced when taken orally compared to topical application.

    How will I know its working?

    The effects of Uva Ursi might be noticeable in the relief of urinary tract infection symptoms, such as reduced discomfort and frequency of urination.

    When to take it?

    Take 1-2 capsules daily with food and water, unless specified otherwise on the sachet.

    Do not take if you have renal disease. Not recommended if you are pregnant or nursing.
