Enzymedica - ViraStop - 120 Capsules
Enzymedica Virastop contains a high potency, exclusive blend of protease enzymes to support the immune system. Virastop contains eight different proteases which can break down undigested protein, cellular debris, and toxins in the blood. Protease is able to dissolve almost all proteins as long as they are not components of living cells. For a protease enzyme to digest proteins they have to be attached to a dead organism, damaged, or be a protein that does not belong in the body.
Virastop contains the highest available potency of an exclusive blend of proteases to assist the body in purification. Protease can break down undigested protein, cellular debris and assist in the break down of toxins in the blood, sparing the immune system this task. The immune system can then concentrate its full action on the invasion.
Oral proteases taken on an empty stomach have been shown to be absorbed and carried into the blood stream where they are bound to Alpha II (Alpha-II-macroglobulin). Recent research has indicated that oral proteases bound to the Alpha II break down (digest) protein pathogens in the blood. This includes, but is not limited to viruses, fungal forms (such as candida), bacteria and parasites.
Viruses are cell parasites consisting of nucleic acids covered by a protein film. The introduction of oral proteases, presents the ability of those enzymes to act upon the protein coating of the viruses. Enzymes can also break down undigested food protein, cellular debris, and toxins in the blood, sparing the immune system this task. The immune system can then concentrate its full action on the viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic invasion.
For the above reasons Virastop is a unique product. It is not an “immune stimulator”, rather an “immune balancer.” It contains a blend of eight proteases, which has the potential of becoming part of the immune system when taken on an empty stomach.
About Enzymedica: The Enzyme Experts
Enzymedica is dedicated to providing exceptional enzyme-focused supplements at the most therapeutic levels available in the natural foods industry and beyond. It is their commitment to provide unprecedented education and research that propels individuals on the path to vibrant health.
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.
