Uva Ursi Leaf
Package size4 oz 2 oz
Uva Ursi folium, also known as bearberry leaf, is used in Zen's Uric acid tea blend Gout-B-Gone. Uva Ursi leaves are one of three herbs used in this blend. The berries are tasty to bears and so when the plant was named in Latin uva-ursi, this was taken into consideration; uva, "grape, berry of the vine", ursi, "bear", i.e. "bear's grape". But Uva ursi tea is generally made using the leaves of the plant rather than the sour berries.
Uva Ursi leaves have an earthy taste.
What this tea can do
This herbal product is used for urinary infection symptom relief, infections of the kidney, bladder, or urethra (urinary tract infections or UTIs), and swelling (inflammation) of the urinary tract. It contains arbutin, a chemical compound, which belongs to the glycosides and hydroquinones. This tea will help to replenish the lost chemical in your body. Uva Ursi also contains allantoin, a chemical also found in Aloe, which has a soothing effect. The content of arbutin in leaves depends on the season as well as on the geographical distribution.
