Natural Support for Urinary and Immune System Health
Usnea Uva Ursi Supreme from Gaia Herbs is a concentrated synergistic formula that may help support bladder, kidney, urinary tract, and immune system health.
This blend of usnea lichen and uva ursi may help
- Promote excretion within the kidneys and urinary tract
- Support a healthy immune response
- Support a healthy urinary system
- Maintain a healthy microbial balance within the urinary system
There are several species of usnea lichen to be found on trees in the US, particularly in the moist, cool, forests of the pacific Northwest. All lichen are a symbiosis of a fungus and an alga.
Resembling Spanish moss, usnea contains a chemical called usnic acid. This may help promote excretion within the kidneys and the urinary tract, a healthy immune response in the respiratory tract and mucous membranes, a healthy urinary system, and a healthy microbial balance within the urinary system.
A small evergreen shrub, uva ursi contains the chemical arbutin. It is known that the body excretes 64-75% of arbutin in urine, and arbutin converted to hydroquinone maintains a healthy microbial balance within the urinary system.
Uva Ursi also contains allantoin, a chemical also found in aloe, which has a soothing effect.
These ingredients may help support
- Bladder function
- Immune system health
- Kidney function
- urinary tract health
