Uva Ursi (Bear Berry) is used as a urinary tract antibacterial and urinary antiseptic. Uva ursi can reduce bacteria in the urine and it can also reduce inflammation. One study found uva ursi more effective when combined with dandelion leaf extract. It is not considered a safe long-term solution.
Uva ursi is also sometimes referred to as Bearberry. It has traditionally been used for its antiseptic properties to help ease inflammatory conditions of the lower urinary tract. Capsules can be swallowed with a glass of water OR may be emptied into a hot cup of water to drink, as the herb has a refreshing odour due to its natural essential oils.
Uva Ursi may enhance effectiveness when taken with D-Mannose powder, they are a fantastic 'UTI prevention duo.' However Uva Ursi is not effective in acidic environments so if you're taking Hipprex + Vitamin C then wait a couple of hours before taking Uva Ursi.
