How it Works
Manufactured in its active form by the liver, Benazepril’s main function is to reduce blood pressure throughout the body. It carries out this function by inhibiting the angiotensin-converting enzyme, which constricts the vessels within the heart. By blocking this enzyme the work load of the heart is greatly decreased as well as the workload of the kidneys. Benazepril promotes vasodilatation of the renal veins which allows blood to pass though the kidneys with ease and decreased the proliferation of masangial cells, providing relief for kidney failure patients.
