Uva Ursi is a dietary supplement formulated to support urinary tract and kidney health. Uva Ursi is available in veggie capsules from Natura-Genics®.
Uva ursi is an evergreen shrub sometimes referred to as bearberry. Uva ursi has been used as a natural remedy to promote urinary system health for hundreds of years.
Benefits of Uva Ursi
Uva ursi contains natural chemicals with infection-fighting properties called glycosides and arbutin. Glycosides are transformed in the body into hydroquinone, which contains antibacterial properties and may assist in reducing bacteria in the urine. Therefore, research has found that uva ursi may support the urinary tract against infection and may assist individuals who suffer from reoccurring urinary tract infections. Additionally, it contains tannins which have an astringent effect on tissues and may promote reduced inflammation.
Uva ursi supports kidney health through its antibacterial and diuretic effects. Diuretics support optimal kidney function. They help the body get rid of excess water and sodium and may promote the excretion of harmful infection-causing bacteria. Uva ursi may also support the prevention of mineral and salt buildup in the kidneys due to its diuretic effects.
