Enzymedica - MucoStop - 48 Capsules
Enzymedica MucoStop is a blend of proteolytic enzymes to help reduce the effects of histamine-induced inflammation. The purpose of MucoStop is to support normal mucus function while helping to speed the breakdown and removal of inappropriate mucus. Mucolase, one of the enzymes in MucoStop , is a proteolytic enzyme (breaks down protein) that has mucolytic properties, meaning it targets and hydrolyzes inappropriate or excess mucus.
MucoStop contains a blend of enzymes formulated to break down mucus and reduce histamine.
Mucus is a beneficial protein created by the body to protect vital organs and bind up pathogens for removal from the body. The purpose of MucoStop is to support normal mucus function while helping to speed the breakdown and removal of inappropriate mucus. MucoStop is a blend of proteolytic enzymes to help reduce the effects of histamine induced inflammation.
Proteolytic enzymes are enzymes that break down proteins. Not all proteases, however, can break down all proteins. For example, a protease that effectively digests food protein will not be a good protease for mucus protein. The mucus protein requires an enzyme classified as proteolytic and mucolytic.
Mucolase is a proteolytic enzyme that has mucolytic properties, meaning it targets and hydrolyzes inappropriate or excess mucus.
Because mucolase comes from the proteolytic family of enzymes it helps to reduce inflammation and support the immune system by hydrolyzing dead and damaged proteins. Mucolase may also have an effect on proteins that do not belong, such as bacterial infections or viral loads.
MucoStop contains Mucolase combined with protease and amylase, blended to assist in overcoming the symptoms often associated with sinus and chest congestion. Due to the amylase Thera-blend it may also help the body reduce histamine levels and promote antihistamine qualities, assisting with seasonal allergies.

In the spring of 1998, Enzymedica was born. The role of Enzymedica is to offer the public the most effective enzyme products available. They utilize the expertise of doctors, researchers and clinicians in formulating each of their products. They are proud of what they have to offer the public, namely therapeutic enzyme supplements that have been health professional proven.
Enzymedica's entire focus and purpose is enzymes. They are the experts. Unlike most of their competitors, Enzymedica does not make vitamin supplements or herbal cleanses. All they manufacture are the highest quality, highest potency enzyme products available.
Enzymedica products are Health Professional proven. Enzymedica products contain the highest therapeutic activities available. No other company uses higher active units in a multiple enzyme line. In addition to a digestive enzyme that is on average three times stronger than their competitors, Enzymedica has a therapeutic digestive enzyme blend, a carbohydrate digestion and allergy assistance blend, a blood purifier, and a fat digestion and cardiovascular product.
Enzymedica is proud to be GMP Registered through NSF International. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity that it is represented to possess.
NSF International helps protect you by certifying products and writing standards for food, water and consumer goods. As an independent, not-for-profit organization, NSF's ongoing public health commitment is to encourage everyone to live safer. The NSF GMP Registration for contract manufacturers and internal manufacturing facilities of dietary supplement companies enables contract manufacturers to become independently registered by NSF as complying with GMP requirements as listed in Section 8 of NSF/ANSI Standard 173-2006. NSF's Dietary Supplement Standard is updated to keep pace with FDA GMP regulations.
Enzymedica uses an exclusive Thera-blend process for its protease, lipase, amylase and cellulase. This means that each of these enzymes actually represents multiple strains. For example, there are actually four proteases in the Thera-blend protease. They are blended for their ability to break down numerous bonds of protein in varying pH levels. Enzymedica does this at a considerable expense. From a label description Enzymedica also sacrifices active units to provide the best blend possible. A single protease, for example, could produce more active units per milligram than a multiple protease. However, the active pH would be narrow and the number of protein bonds it could break would be limited.
Enzymedica products are 100% vegan and vegetarian. Enzymedica uses no fillers in any of its enzyme formulations.
You will no doubt notice how small the capsules are in comparison to similar products. This is a result of using concentrates with no fillers.
Enzymedica continues to research the therapeutic effectiveness of plant based enzymes through doctors and clinicians. Currently, the company is coordinating and funding research that is ongoing. Enzymedica has every batch third party tested. This ensures they always meet label claim.
