French name : Uva-ursi

Latin nameArctostaphylos uva-ursi

Type : Tincture

Known properties : Traditionally used to treat urinary infections.



Contains : Uva-ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), ratio 1:5, purified water, 27% natural grain alcohol.

Description : As the cranberry, which is botanically very close, bearberry treats inflammation of the urinary tract (cystitis, inflammation of the pelvis and kidney, inflammation of the urethra after after a gonorrhoea, prostatic hyperplasia accompanied with pus in urine, colibacillosis). They also relieve incontinence and urine retention, and to a lesser degree, urinary stones, diarrhea, dysentery and vaginal discharge.  

It appears that the arbutin (active ingredient of the Uva-ursi) would be metabolized in the urinary tract, where it is degraded into glucose and hydroquinone, a substance very similar to phenol, a powerful antiseptic. In other words, the plant releases its anti-infective principle exactly where it is required.

Recommended dosage : 1/2 tsp 3 times daily or as recommended by your health care practitioner.

Cautions and warnings : Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, children under 12 years old, if you have gastrointestinal disorders.

Adverse reactions  : As the plant is rich in tannin, it may cause stomach irritation, in which case you can take a bit of German chamomille.


Size : 100 ml
