How does fluid move in the body?
Water and other fluids pass through cell membranes by a process called osmosis. Like any other bodily process, osmosis depends on a number of related variables in order to function properly and maintain fluid balance. The rate of osmosis depends on concentrations, temperatures, and electrical charges on either side of the cell membrane. Movement across the cell membrane continues until the concentrations on either side of the membrane become equal. Normal, everyday situations like sitting for an extended period of time in an airplane can cause fluid to collect in the foot and ankle area. Other actions like sweating cause fluid loss in tissues.
How does this product support healthy fluid transfer?
In the human body, carbamide, also called urea, is manufactured in the liver during detoxification of ammonia generated from protein metabolism.1Carbamide is released into the blood, passes into the kidneys, and is excreted.2Either carbamide or sodium chloride must be available to encourage water output in the kidneys.3* A-C Carbamide can supplement the body’s own carbamide to ensure a sufficient amount.
How does this product support the healthy regulation of fluid and nitrogen metabolism?
In the body, carbamide (urea) plays a key role in the urinary concentrating mechanism.4 Along with sodium chloride, urea is a major constituent of the osmotic gradient (the difference in concentration between two solutions on either side of a membrane) in the inner medulla of the kidney and helps support healthy formation of urine. Additionally, dietary carbamide (urea), as supplied by A-C Carbamide, has been studied for its value as a source of nitrogen for the body to use.5*
