Uva Ursi Max-V
Uva Ursi Max-V, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 200 mg of standardized Uva Ursi and 100 mg of non-standardized leaf in a vegetarian capsule.
Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), also known as bearberry, is a low-lying evergreen shrub found in Canada, Europe, and Asia. It has been used traditionally as a diuretic, astringent and urinary antiseptic for several hundred years. One of the active components in it, arbutin, releases hydroquinone, which can provide support for a healthy urinary tract.
Each capsule contains:
- Uva ursi Herbal extract – 200 mg
(Arctostaphylos uva-ursi L.Spreng)
(Standardized to provide 40 mg (20%) arbutin)
- Uva Ursi (leaf) non-standardized – 100 mg
Adults take 1 capsule daily between meals or as directed by one of our health coach professionals. Not intended for long- term use. Do not take if pregnant or lactating.
Uva ursi may cause nausea, vomiting, gastrointestinal discomfort, and a greenish-brown discoloration of the urine. Uva ursi contains hydroquinone which inhibits melanin synthesis and might lead to retinal thinning if used long-term.
Chronic use, especially in children, can cause liver impairment due to its tannin content.
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children.
