Uva Ursi Max-V (Bearberry) by Douglas Laboratories or (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi L. Spreng.) leaves contain glycosides (arbutin and methylarbutin), tannin, hydroquinone and allantoin. Arbutin is converted in the body to hydroquinones (which turn urine green) and glucose. This extract is standardized at 25% arbutin. 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 urinary health. Other studies have indicated that uva ursi can modulate healthy allergy and inflammatory processes.
