Carbamide PlusTM supplies USP grade carbamide, fortified with celery seed extract, Uva
ursi, marshmallow and vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5-phosphate), in a base of ArgizymeTM.
Carbamide (urea), a water soluble, non-toxic substance, is produced in the liver, and is utilized by the body in a
number of processes, primarily nitrogen excretion. It is synthesized by the body as part of the urea cycle. Besides its role of transporting nitrogen waste, carbamide plays a critical role in the re-absorption of water and key minerals from excreted urine.This mechanism is important for hydration and the maintenance of healthy blood pressure.

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.
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.
