Uva Ursi has a history of medicinal use dating back to the 2nd century. It has been widely used as a diuretic, astringent, and antiseptic. Common medicine around the world has recommended Uva Ursi for nephritis, kidney stones, and chronic cystitis. The herb has also been used as a general boost for weakened kidneys, liver or pancreas. Native Americans used it as a remedy for headaches, to prevent and cure scurvy and to treat urinary tract infections.
Today, uva ursi is used mostly for urinary tract disorders which include infections of the bladder, kidney, urethra, swelling of the urinary tract, increase in urination, painful urination, and excessive acids found in urine. As a nutritional supplement and muscle relaxant, it soothes, strengthens, and tightens irritated and inflamed tissues. It also helps reduce bloating and water retention, which makes it beneficial for weight loss.
