Enzyme Defense (former Virastop)
Enzyme Defense™ is an improved version of ViraStop. The enhanced formula contains a 60% increase of Serrapeptase (also known as Serratiopeptidase).
The immune system is constantly challenged with protecting the body from environmental threats. Almost all of these threats have a protein component that the immune system must identify and then break down.
Enzymes can break down undigested food protein, cellular debris and toxins in the blood.* 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.1 Recent research also indicates that the oral proteases bound to these plasma proteins are able to break down harmful protein-based invadersin the blood.2
Enzyme Defense is not an “immune stimulator,” rather a supporter of healthy immune function.*
Thera-blend™ is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in specific pH levels, resulting in superior performance in the body. The unique Enzyme Defense formulas includes Enzymedica’s Protease Thera-blend™ that helps break down protein intruders in the bloodstream and Catalase, an enzyme that provides powerful antioxidant properties.* This enzyme neutralizes harmful free radicals. Rounding out the Enzyme Defense formulas are Mucolase™ and Serrapeptase. These enzymes encourage circulation, digest mucus and support systemic health.*
If a higher potency formula is desired, try Enzymedica’s Enzyme Defense Extra Strength. It is the same great product at double the strength of Enzyme Defense.
Recommended Use: 1 capsule twice daily on an empty stomach, one hour before or two hours after a meal.
