Uva ursi is a versatile plant since we can use both its leaves, stem and fruit. These are harvested throughout autumn, but only the first two parts are suitable for medicinal formulas.
Its main ingredients are:
- Tannins, which have an astringent function.
- Flavonoids, which have a diuretic effect.
- Allantoin, which has a sedative effect apart from stimulating the regeneration of tissues.
- Ursolic acid, a powerful diuretic and astringent substance.
Traditionally, it has been used for its different benefits for the organism:
- Skin. These benefits are associated with its allantoin content. In fact, it has been used to make face and body creams with anti-sebum, depigmenting, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Women. Together with cranberries, it is an excellent remedy to prevent postpartum infections. On its own, it can help to reduce the swelling caused by the menstruation.
- Prostate problems. It is an effective way to support a treatment against prostate problems. For example, you can make an infusion with bearberry, horsetail, juniper and fireweed.
- Fluid retention.
- Cardiovascular health.
- Chronic diarrhea control
- It plays a special role in treating urinary infections, specially due to its arbutin content, which is an extremely effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory substance in the urinary tract.
