About Uva Ursi

Active constituents of the uva ursi herb are phenolic glycoside or arbutin. Arbutin, is a powerful astringent with antiseptic properties, as well as hydroquinone derivatives (which is a powerful anti-microbial agent). Uva Ursi other components are: tannins, hyperoside, monotropein and triterpenes. The diuretic action is due to the glucoside Arbutin, which is largely absorbed unchanged and is excreted by the kidneys. During its excretion, Arbutin exercises an antiseptic effect on the urinary mucous membrane. Therefore, it is used in inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract.

Side Effects and Interactions
The high tannin content of the herb could precipitate alkaloid drugs, and bind iron or other metal ions. Foods or drugs that produce an acidic urine could presumably reduce the urinary antimicrobial effects of uva ursi, while alkanization of the urine would enhance this effect.
