What is Bearberry?

Bearberry, also known as Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (the common bearberry), is a low-growing plant native to Asia, Europe, Central and North America. The herb gets its name from one of its biggest fans: bears love to eat the small red berries that grow on the shrub (“uva ursi” means “grape of the bear” in Latin).

While they are popular with bears, the berries are poisonous to humans. The leaves however, are loaded with health benefits.

Benefits

Bearberry may help with urinary tract infections (UTIs) and supports digestive health. Bearberry leaf naturally contains Glycosides such as Arbutin, Ericolin and Methylarbutin. It also contains Flavonoids, Allantoin, Hydroquinone, Ellagic acid, Malic acid, Gallic acid, Tannins, and Ursolic acid. It has vitamin and mineral content including Vitamin A, Manganese, Iron, Silicon, and Selenium, all of which are essential for good health. It also may have anti-aging properties and promotes healthy skin.

Natural Hydroquinone

I had a compounding pharmacy make me a cream for dark spots on my face. At $40 per 2 oz it is a bit expensive although it lasts for over a year. I did some research and came up with a more natural alternative with licorice root extract, bearberry (arbutin and hydroquinone), Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), Vitamin A and Kojic acid in a lotion base and a more concentrated form in a cream base for stubborn areas. Works like a charm! I love getting my raw ingredients from Bulk Supplements for skin and gym use!

Bear berry Leaf Review

I am happy with the quick shipping and I received my order in great shape. I ordered from another supplier before and was not even sure what I had received. This is quality for your money. Will be ordering again
