Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi ) is a small woody ground cover plant that grows to approximately 2 inches to one foot high. The alternate leaves are shiny, leathery, and stay green for one to three years, before falling off. The plant also gets distinctive red berries, which is a favorite food of bears. It has several common names, including “ Bearberry”. In Latin Uva Ursi translates to grape of the bear. The plant grows wild in northern areas, such as Iceland, Norway, Siberia, Canada and Alaska. Native Americans used Uva Ursi for centuries. The leaves are gathered and used to create herbal preparations, such as herb teas, herb capsules and liquid herbal extracts and tinctures. The Uva ursi leaves contain arbutin – a compound that may support its herbal actions*.
