Description - Research and Analysis

Uva Ursi (Bearberry) is traditionally used as a urinary antiseptic, can be used to help support infections and inflammatory disorders of the lower urinary tract. Specific indications are given as cystitis, dysuria, pyelitis and lithuria.

Uva Ursi
Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (L.) Spreng.

Family: Ericaeae.

Other Names: Bearberry; upland cranberry; raisin d'ours, busserole officinale (French); Echte Bärentraube (German); uva ursina (Italian); gayuba del pays (Spanish).

Description: Bearberry is a variable evergreen shrub with small bright green leaves. The branches grow flat along the ground and are smooth, with reddish brown, flaldng bark. Delicate, white or pinkish urn-shaped flowers are followed by bright red berries.

Origin: The plant is widely distributed in the arctic region and is common in Europe, Asia and North America. Leaves are wild-harvested.

Parts Used: Leaves (Uvae ursi folium).

Therapeutic Category: Urinary antiseptic.

Active Ingredients: The leaves contain a phenolic glycoside known as arbutin, together with other hydroquinone derivatives. Arbutin is not in itself active, but is metabolically modified to hydroquinone derivatives (such as hydroquinone glucuronide and hydroquinone sulphate). It has been assumed (but not shown experimentally) that these compounds are hydrolysed in alkaline urine to the active hydroquinone, so that sodium bicarbonate may be prescribed as part of the product approach. The leaves also contain large amounts of tannins (gallotannins and ellagitannins), a well as hyperoside (a flavone), monotropeine (an indoidglucoside) and triterpenes.

Health Effects: Hydroquinone is active against bacteria and fungi and has an antiseptic and astringent effect on the mucous membranes of the urinary tract. The maximum activity is seen after 3-4 hours but the concentration in urine must exceed 60 µg per ml. The effects of hydroquinone have been demonstrated in animal studies.

Status: Pharm.; Comm. E+; ESCOP 5; WHO 2.

Preparation and Dosage: The dried leaves are taken as infusions and are commonly included in commercial herbal teas marketed for kidney arid bladder health. The maximum single dose is 3 g of the dry herb (or preparations containing 100 - 210 mg hydroquinone equivalents), while the maximum daily dose is 3 g of herb taken up to four times per day (or 400 - 840 mg of hydroquinones).

Historical evidence suggests uva ursi may be a potential way to help support symptoms of some urinary tract infections, and that it may possibly reduce uric acid kidney stones. However, clinical trials proving such a benefit have never been carried out, and the plant contains too many known carcinogens to use on a regular basis, which is what would be required to help avoid kidney stone formation.

It is not clear whether or not the potentially adverse effects of the identified carcinogens in uva ursi are reduced by the presence of other compounds in the herb making it safe for long-term use. Further testing is required to make any definite assertions concerning the safety of uva ursi one way or another.
