The urinary tract relies heavily upon the liver, kidneys, and bladder for proper removal of potential toxins from the body. Usnea lichen is used to promote excretion within the kidneys and the urinary tract, which supports a healthy immune response in the respiratory tract and mucous membranes, and healthy functions of the urinary system.◆
Research shows Usnic acid is largely responsible for usnea lichen benefits. Usnic acid exhibits anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. Usnea lichen also contains barbatinic acid, beta-sitosterol, and oleanic acid, which can support microbial balance in the gastrointestinal and urinary tracts.◆
Usnea has been used since 1600 B.C. by Chinese, Greek, and Egyptian healers as a purported healing, anti-inflammatory and analgesic herb. The outer portion of the plant, also called the cortex, is said to contain healing compounds whereas the inner portion (the thallus) holds immune-supporting substances.
