Uva Ursi

Uva Ursi

Why do you take Zeal? To lose weight and get healthy.

What’s a major component of losing weight? Losing water weight, because what is the point of shedding 50 pounds if you’re still going to have 20 pounds of water in your body? You might as well let your kids throw you around at a summer picnic.

Uva ursi is found in ZealO2 to act as a diuretic to help you lose unnecessary water weight without completely dehydrating you.

Uva ursi is no different than any other WheatgrassLove products in that it doesn’t just do one thing! Uva ursi has been used in folk medicine around the world to treat kidney stones and infections, nephritis, and urinary tract infections.

This herb is so effective that it was used to treat such infections until the discovery of sulfa drugs. This is due to the glucoside Arbutin, one of the main active ingredients in uva ursi.

This ingredient is largely absorbed by the kidneys and is then excreted in an unchanged form. During the excretion of glucoside Arbutin an antiseptic effect is exercised on the mucous membrane of urinary passages, thus strengthening them, as well as treating any inflammatory diseases that are present.
The main reason it is in Zeal is because of its diuretic properties.

Uva ursi neutralizes acidity in the urine which is important because this increases urine flow, thus reducing bloating and water retention. This is a crucial part of weight loss since the added water weight can produce inaccurate numbers; it can make you look like a Randy Jackson when you’re really a Paula Abdul.

Uva ursi also contains tannins that produce astringent effects. This is great for you because this can help shrink and tighten mucous membranes in the body, which makes the herb great for healing wounds on the outside of your body, as well as the inside. So pretty much if you got your foot amputated you should put this on it and you’ll grow a new one! Just kidding, this is real life, not “The Amazing Spiderman,” but it will probably help heal that scrape you got from seeing if you had sticky hands and could climb up the side of a building.

Along with its diuretic properties, uva ursi has also been known to produce euphoria. This means that when you take HappyGirl, you get the benefits of weight loss and feeling like you’re on top of the world. Maybe you’ll even take over it one day… in a good way, not like Pinky and the Brain. Or Instagram.
