Formula CBR
60 Capsules • 545 mg
Formula CBR™ is a combination of chanca piedra and fifteen quality herbs.
It has been formulated for gallbladder and kidney support.

Chanca piedra means “stone breaker” or ‘shatter stone.” It was named for its effective use by generations of Amazonian indigenous people in promoting the elimination of kidney stones and gallstones. Since the mid-1960s, chanca piedra has been the subject of much phytochemical research to determine active constituents and pharmacological activities. Many of the “active” constituents are attributed to biologically active lignans, glycosides, flavonoids, alkaloids, ellagitannins, and phenylpropanoids found in the leaves, stem, and root of the plant. 

The roots and leaves of dandelion have been used for hundreds of years to support liver, gallbladder, and kidney function. The primary constituents responsible for dandelion’s action on the digestive system and liver are the bitter principles which increase bile production in the gallbladder and bile from the liver. 

Agrimony which has a few applications, is commonly used for digestive function. It contains ellagitannins (agrimoniin), flavonoids (apigenin, quercetin, luteolin) among other constituents. This herb also acts on the urinary tract in several ways. It promotes diuretic activity and urinary system health.

The bark of buckthorn has been used as a laxative in northern and central Europe for centuries. This herb is high in anthraquinone glycosides which promote a laxative effect, inducing the large intestine to increase muscular contraction (peristalsis). Also, it increases water movement from the cells of the colon into the feces, resulting in strong, soft bowel movement. 

Queen of Meadow is known for its effects on the kidneys and urinary system tract. The root supports the healthy elimination of urine and health of the digestive system. 

Northern California Indians introduced cascara sagrada which they called sacred bark. The bark is high in hydroxyanthraquinone glycosides called cascarosides. Resins, tannins, and lipids make up the bulk of the other ingredients. The cascarosides are responsible to promote a laxative action that induces the large intestine to increase muscular contraction resulting in bowel movements. 

Barberry is used for various types of conditions. The alkaloid, berberine, receives the most research and widest acclaim as the active component of barberry. This herb is thought to promote the secretion and flow of bile. 

The leaves and berries of uva ursi were used by numerous Native Americans. The glycoside arbutin is the main active constituent in this herb and comprises up to 10% of the plant by weight. Hydroquinone derived from arbutin and methylarbutin is a powerful agent thought to be responsible for uva ursi’s ability to promote urinary tract health. 

Hydrangea contains several agents including hydrangin, a naturally occurring phytochemical found in the plant and responsible for promoting urinary system health. The most common use of this herb is for its diuretic properties which help increase the flow of urine. This promotes the removal of impurities out of the system by decreasing the likelihood of having serious complications in the urinary tract. 

This supplement also contains parsley leaves. Two of the major active ingredients of parsley are apiol and myristicin which promote diuretic activity and uterine health. 

Lobelia is used by herbalists for respiratory problems. It also promotes spasms in the body, including in the intestines and ureters (passages from the kidney to the bladder). The alkaloid lobeline is responsible for most of lobelia’s actions. 

The root of marshmallow has several applications, but one of the most important is being a digestive aid. Herbal literature also states that the root has the potential to act as a diuretic. Other research suggests that the soothing effect of this herb can promote the relief of internal irritation in the urinary tract. 

Cramp bark has various uses but it is also considered a kidney stimulant for urinary conditions involving pain or spasms. It is used to promote the increase of urine flow. 

The seeds of fennel are mostly used in herbalism. The major constituents, which include the terpenoid anethol, are found in the volatile oil. Anethol and other terpenoids promote the inhibition of spasms in smooth muscles. Fennel is also thought to have diuretic and choleretic effects (increase in production of bile) among other actions. 

Horsetail is considered an important agent to promote kidney and bladder health. It is rich in silicic acid and silicates, potassium, and manganese along with fifteen different types of flavonoids. The presence of these flavonoids, as well as saponins, is believed to promote the diuretic effect. 

Wild Yam has a few applications in the field of natural health therapies. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), wild yam is used for urinary tract conditions such as renal and electrolyte balance.
