Botanical name: Arctostaphylos uva ursi
Uva Ursi is an evergreen perennial groundcover found throughout the higher elevations of Europe and Asia that is also known as pinemat manzanita and kinnikinnick. Because bears are fond of the fruit, the herb is one of many also referred to as bearberry.
Due to the presence of a glycoside called arbutin, the powdered leaf is used to make infusions and extracts for topical use. Powdered Uva Ursi can also be encapsulated, but long-term use is not recommended due to a potential risk of liver toxicity.
