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.
Mucus is defined as a clear, viscous secretion from the mucus membranes and glands, consisting of water, various salts, exfoliated cells and white blood cells. In more general terms, mucus is a beneficial protein created by the body to protect vital organs and bind up pathogens for removal from the body.
There are many things that can cause excess mucus and hinder upper and lower respiratory function. Among these are cold temperatures, changes in season, allergic reactions and medications. Encouraging removal of excess mucus may lessen the discomforts commonly associated with seasonal or occasional congestion.*
