Bear Berry (Uva Ursi)

Does anyone know about Bearberry (Uva Ursi) ? A herbalist has recommended I take it as it acts as a natural defender of the bladder and UTI’s. Anyone know how effective it is and ok for long term?

My daily anti biotic Nitrofurantoin can’t work if I take Magnesium. There are so many benefits to Magnesium I’m loathe to stop it. My gp insists I have to stop magnesium so the anti b’s can stop and prevent the uti’s I’ve been plagued with.

Can anyone help or advise?

Cheers, Chrissie x
