The leaves of the plant contain 8-25% of erycoline (arbutin glycoside), about 30% of the tannins of the pyrogallic group, flavonoids (isoquercitrin, quercetin, hyperoside, quercitin, myricitrin and myricetin), ursolic acid, free hydroquinone, essential oils and a number of acids (ascorbic, formic, cinchona). The leaves contain a fairly large amount of iodine, essential amino acids and nitrogenous substances.
Form of issue
The powder is packed in special filter bags. In a pack of cardboard is 10, 20 bags and instructions from the pharmaceutical company. The package shows a photo of a bearberry.
Leaves bearberry ordinary contain a number of organic acids and a set of flavonoids, but the main therapeutic effect is provided by the glucoside contained in the plant arbutin. After entering the human body, arbutin as a result of hydrolysis breaks down into hydroquinone (diatomic phenol) and glucose. Hydroquinone has an antiseptic effect and has a diuretic, diuretic effect.
The most active process for the splitting of arbutin is observed in the urinary tract (alkaline hydrolysis, contact with uric acid), therefore the main properties of bearberry leaves find application in the therapy of nephrologic pathology (pyelitis, nephritis, urethritis, cystitis and other inflammatory processes in the bladder or renal system) . The medicinal properties of bearberry leaves have found application in diseases of other organs and systems (gastritis, goiter, etc.).
The broth of bearberry contains tannic substances, which in the digestive tract exhibit astringent action. Experiments in rats have shown that the plant is also an antihypoxant (the percentage of survival among animals has increased in hypoxic conditions).
Hydroquinone is able to increase the activity of oxidation-reduction processes. Under its influence, O-methyltransferase is blocked, which allows to prolong the action of adrenaline. Experimental studies have shown that hydroquinone has a positive effect on metabolism, the ability of the tissue to absorb oxygen, normalizes the level of glutathione, potassium and glucose in the blood, neutralizes diabetic ketoacidosis, and in a number of shock states shows a hypertensive effect.
