Description - Research and Analysis

Uva Ursi

Name

Arctostaphylos uva ursi (L.) Sprengel (Ericaceae), commonly called Bearberry (Arctostaphylos is Greek for bearberry). In French, it is Rasin d'ours or Busserole; in German, Bärentraube and, Bärentraubenblätter.

Source

Supports are made from the dried leaves. The plant is a trailing perennial ground cover that resembles cranberry. Even though it is the berries that attract bears, they are not thought to have any health value. Only the leaves are used for healths. Uva ursi grows in most temperate climates. It probably came originally from northern Asia.

History

The Greeks and Romans used this shrub to help support urinary tract symptoms, and the practice continued well on into the Middle Ages. As herbal supportives have become more popular, there has been renewed interest in using uva ursi to help support an assortment of urinary tract afflictions.

Traditional Support Uses

Urinary tract anti-inflammatory

Commission E Recommendations

Uva ursi can be used to help support inflammation of the urinary tract.

Possible Effects

The active ingredients are thought to be a molecule called arbutin, and a related compound called hydroquinone, along with tannins and flavonoids. If the urine happens to be alkaline, arbutin and hydroquinone assume an active form that can fight the growth of bacteria. This means that to get the maximal effect, bicarbonate, or something similar, has to be taken along with the uva ursi. There is also some evidence that uva ursi extracts might help to dissolve or fight uric acid kidney stones. Unfortunately, the vast majority (85 percent) of kidney stones are made of calcium, not uric acid. Even more unfortunate is the fact that there are no clinical trials to back up any of these claims.
