More Info. on Uva-ursi Complex:
Uva-ursi or Bearberry is a small woody shrub, which thrives in the mountains of Alfred Vogel’s native Switzerland. It also flourishes in many other regions, such as North America, Siberia, the Himalayas and Northern Europe. Uva-ursi can also be found in Scotland; there is even a hill in the area of Strathnairn known as ‘Cnoc nan Cnàimhseag’ which translates to ‘the hill of the bearberries’. Humans discovered its healthcare potential as early as 2 A.D. and the Native Americans soon discovered its ability to help them when they were troubled with their bladders.
The plant is short and creeping, and produces pink or white bell shaped flowers that bloom in the summer. The berries of the plant are said to be shaped like the human bladder. Bearberry is thus named, as it was thought to have been eaten with delight by bears. Unlike bears however, we don’t use the berries but the leaves of the plant.
