Uva ursi tea is an extremely soothing agent for those who experience pain, swelling, inflammation, and obstructions in the urinary tract. Uva Ursi tea has a formidable ability to reduce urethra swelling and reprieve the spasm pain related kidney stones, bladder stones, and urinary tract infections. While Uva Ursi tea will not treat the infection of the bladder itself, it is a quick acting abatement for the UTI pain
Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi), also known as bearberry, has been traditionally used to treat bladder, kidney and urinary tract infections. Uva Ursi berries are a favourite of bears hence the name “bearberry” but only the leaves are used in herbal medicine and not the berries. One preliminary study has shown when Uva Ursi is combined with dandelion, it may help with reoccurring urinary tract infections. Some sources suggest that Uva Ursi should only be used in short periods of time no longer than 5 days.
