Urination is something many people think little about
unless something goes wrong. From excessive
urination to nocturnal enuresis to urinary tract
infections to urinary incontinence, urinary issues are
problems for many.
Most people do not realize that in order to produce
urine, the body processes liquids into an intermediate
stage which is high in the amino acid called arginine.
Normally the liver produces enough of the enzyme
arginase to convert and concentrate this liquid into
urea (urine) . When it does not, however, in some
people this seems to cause the body to try to expel this
high arginine liquid excessively, both day and night.
Decades ago a nutrition-based biological process was
developed to assist the body with this aspect of urine
metabolism . And now, there is actually one and only one
100% food product that utilizes this special biological
process without any USP "nutrients" called Arginase
Bladder. Arginase bladder is a 100% Food supplement that
is intended to supply nutrients to support healthy
kidney and bladder function. The kidneys process
proteins and liquids and are the primary organs involved
in eliminating metabolic waste products from the blood.
Arginase Bladder is intended to support the cleansing
ability of the kidneys. It has been written that this type of product
is indicated sometimes when there is "[p]ain in area of
kidneys or bladder (may radiate through dorsal region to
liver area) burning on urination; uremia, uriniferous
odor of breath, itching of skin from "salty" (residue)
perspiration; edema; ascites, dropsy, etc.; toxemia,
body odor, pasty skin, biliousness; liver disease,
enlargement, diminished urination, veinous congestion,
etc".a valuable adjunct in all problems involving the
liver and kidneys, particularly where this is evidenced
by systemic manifestations involving the detoxification
mechanisms and fluid balance" .
It is a scientific fact that, "Arginase hydrolyzes
arginine to urea". In addition to raising serum arginine
levels, arginase deficiency can lead to raised ammonia
levels . Arginase is produced in the liver [1,3].
Arginase Bladder contains ingredients which have been
used to nutritionally support the bladder and various
aspects of urine metabolism.
Acerola Cherry is one of the most vitamin C dense foods
. Arginase is activated by vitamin C . One study
found that vitamin C taken prophylactically by pregnant
and nursing mothers could reduce the incidence of
urinary tract infections .
Beet and rice specially processed with Rhizopus oryzae
and Tillandsia usneoides has long been used to support,
"Intermediate processes involving urea metabolism which
support liver and kidney function where toxic overload
places stress on these organs" . Many decades ago,
Royal Lee, Bill Hansen, and David Roderick worked
together. A special type of biological process for
urinary support was developed around that time that
David"s son Steven Roderick uses for Arginase Bladder.
Beets themselves have long been used for kidney and
bladder disorders .
Bovine kidney supplies kidney tissue. Kidney tissue
naturally contains kidney enzymes, proteins, and other
peptides needed for proper renal function. "The kidneys
perform their most important functions by filtering the
plasma and removing substances from the filtrate at a
variable rate, depending upon the needs of the body.
Ultimately, the kidneys "clear" unwanted substances from
the filtrate (and therefore from the blood) by excreting
them in the urine while returning substances that are
needed back to the blood"Urine formation begins with
filtration of large amounts of fluid through the
glomerular capillaries into Bowman"s capsule"The kidney
conserves water by excreting a concentrated urine" .
Helping concentrate urine also reduces the possibility
of urinary tract infections, and reduces extra trips to
the restroom. Kidney tissue is recommended for urinary
tract infections and to strengthen the kidneys .
Bovine liver supplies liver tissue. Bovine liver tissue
contains the substances naturally found in the liver,
like arginase . In order to convert the high arginine
intermediate substrate into urea and orthinine, the body
uses the enzyme

arginase. "The liver has the greatest amount of this
enzyme, and accounts for the majority of urea
synthesis"[a] small amount is carried out by the kidney
and brain"the hydrolysis of arginine to urea and
orthinine makes possible the urea cycle" . An excess
accumulation of arginine (due to insufficient arginase)
contributes to excessively frequent urination (as the
body tries to flush this diluted semi-urine out) and
increases in urinary tract infections (as this less
concentrated semi-urine is a less hostile environment
for pathogens than concentrated urine is). "The liver is
well known for its ability to detoxify or excrete"many
drugs"hormones" and other substances" . The liver
tissue found in Uro-Kid Supportis from New Zealand.
Buckwheat juice and seed has long been used as part of
nutrition to support the intermediate processes
involving urea metabolism and "support liver and kidney
function where toxic overload places stress on these
organs" . "A 20% drop in systolic level is not
unusual in the initial stages, progressively lowering
under long term use. Importance of protracted treatment
should be stressed" . Though most often recommended
for capillary and venous health (i.e. bruising, varicose
veins) [10,11], naturopaths, chiropractors, and holistic
doctors have long recommended its leaves or its immune
supporting components in products to fight viral and
bacterial infections [9,12,13]. In addition to
containing chlorophyll, presumably active components
include rutin, quercitin, and hyperoside  (it also
contains other semi-unique Food substances that may be
actively needed). It should be noted that, despite its
name, buckwheat is not taxonomically related to wheat,
and is often used in gluten-free, wheat-free diets .
Carrots are probably the highest concentrated Food
source of the vitamin A precursor beta carotene.
"Scientists in India have discovered that carrots afford
significant protection for the liver" as carrots contain
substances which "increase the activity of several
enzymes that speed up detoxification of the liver and
other organs" . Carrots appear to have some bladder
protection benefits .
Goat bladder supplies bladder tissue. Bladder tissue
naturally contains the peptides and enzymes that the
bladder needs for nutritional support. "The urinary
bladder"is a smooth muscle chamber composed of two main
parts: (1) the body, which is the major part of the
bladder in which urine collects, and (2) the neck, which
is a funnel-shaped extension of the body"connecting with
the urethra"sensory fibers detect the degree of stretch
in the bladder wall. Stretch signals from the posterior
urethra are especially strong and are mainly responsible
for bladder emptying" .
Peas have been shown to contain a substance that has
"arginine decarboxylase (ADC) activity" . This means
that it can help break carbon away from arginine [1,8].
Peas have long been part of arginase related products
