Despite their small size; only 4.5? long and weighing in at 4-6 ounces each, the kidneys are a remarkably important organ. In fact, they receive greater blood flow than the brain, the liver, or even the heart. All in all, they are responsible for redistributing and reabsorbing over 99% of the blood volume in the body. Over 26 million Americans over the age of 20 have chronic kidney disease, with diabetes being the leading cause, uncontrolled or poorly controlled blood pressure being the second leading cause. Healthy kidneys not only filter blood and regulate waste and toxins, but they maintain a healthy balance of the body’s fluid levels and regulate important hormones, including those that promote bone health, produce red blood cells, and those that regulate normal blood pressure. Therefore, maintaining optimal kidney health should be an important priority for overall health concerns.
CARBAMIDE PLUS supplies USP grade carbamide, fortified with celery seed extract, Uva ursi, marshmallow, and vitamin B6, in a base of ARGIZYME. Carbamide (urea) is a water soluble, non-toxic substance that is naturally produced in the liver and is utilized in the body for a number of processes, most notably – nitrogen excretion. In addition to its role of transporting nitrogen waste, it plays a critical role in the re-absorption of water and key minerals from excreted urine. This mechanism is important for maintaining hydration and healthy blood pressure. Celery seed extract supplies polycetylenes, coumarins, and phtalide – a compound which not only relaxes smooth muscle in vessel walls (positively impacting blood pressure), but blocks the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase, which is required for the production of stress hormones that are known to restrict blood vessels and blood flow. Uva ursi is a natural diuretic and antiseptic herb. Marshmallow is included for its soothing properties and its ability to support healthy mucous membranes. Vitamin B6 (as P-5-P) is a coenzyme for over 100 enzymes and is required for a wide range of biochemical reactions. These herbal extracts and nutrients are all supplied in a base of ARGIZYME, an enzymatically processed organic beet and Tillandsia (Silver Moss) formula that is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements, and antioxidants.
In addition to polyacetylenes and coumarins, celery seed extract supplies phthalide, a compound which relaxes smooth muscle in vessel walls, which in turn can have a positive impact on healthy blood pressure. Phthalide can also block the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase, which is required for the production of stress hormones known to restrict blood vessels, and therefore blood flow. According to Dr. William J Elliot, Clinical Pharmacologist at U. of Chicago, celery is also a natural diuretic and decreases uric acid. Overall, CARBAMIDE PLUS is a systemic alkalinizer.
Uva ursi (Bearberry), functions as a natural diuretic. Uva ursi supplies arbutin, a natural glycoside and the main active constituent. It is converted to hydroquinone, which is responsible for Uva ursi’s antiseptic properties.
Marshmallow is included for its soothing properties and its ability to support healthy mucous membranes, due to its high mucilage content.
Vitamin B6 (as P-5-P) is a coenzyme for over 100 enzymes and is involved in a wide range of biochemical reactions. Among others, these include the synthesis of neurotransmitters, nucleic acids and hemoglobin, and the metabolism of amino acids. Vitamin B6 plays an active role in the immune system, and even a marginal deficiency may negatively impact both humoral and cell-mediated immune responses.
