Uva Ursi Max-V is a highly concentrated form providing 200 mg of urva ursi standardized to 40 mg arbutinin (20%) + 100 mg of whole uva ursi leaf to enhance and balance the phytochemicals.
Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) was first used by Welsh physicians in the 13th century. The leaves were officially a drug for urinary antiseptic in the United States Pharmacopoeia and the National Formulary from 1820 until 1950. Uva Ursi is grown in the wild, tested and produced to certified quality standards. Uva Ursi's ability to fight infection are due to several phytochemicals, including arbutin which releases hydroquinone. The herb also contains tannins that have astringent effects, helping to shrink and tighten mucous membranes in the body. In turn, that helps reduce inflammation and fight infection.†
