Enzymedica - ViraStop 2x Proteolytic Enyme Formulation - 90 Capsules
Enzymedica Virastop 2x contains Ezymedica's strongest and most therapeutic blend of proteolytic enzymes to support the immune system. ViraStop 2X is two times more potent than Virastop (one capsule of Virastop 2x = two capsules of virastop).
Protease enzymes break down proteins, be they proteins in the digestive system, cellular debris or toxins in the blood. Not all proteases, however, can break down all proteins. Therapeutic protease enzymes go beyond digestion, travel through our bloodstream and serve as catalysts to metabolism, detoxification and immune activity. The proteolytic enzymes in ViraStop 2X support the enzymatic activity of the human body, making the formula a potent immune balancer.
While proteolytic enzymes are able to dissolve almost all proteins, this only applies to proteins that are not components of living cells. For protease to digest a protein it must be damaged, attached to a dead organism, or be a protein that does not belong in the body. The body employs enzymes to break down foreign invaders such as bacteria, yeasts and viruses. This happens because viruses are cell parasites consisting of nucleic acids covered by a protein film. Once digested, the body eliminates the virus through its inherent systems of purification and elimination.
Research has shown that oral proteases, taken as a dietary supplement on an empty stomach are absorbed and carried into the blood stream where they are bound to plasma proteins known as Alpha-II-macroglobulin. Recent research also indicates that the oral proteases bound to these plasma proteins are able to break down protein based pathogens in the blood. This includes viruses, fungi such as candida, bacteria and parasites.
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.
