Virastop is no longer produced by Enzymedica. The good news is that they have improved the formula and re-named the product. The new product is called, Enzyme Defense™.
They have enhanced the formula to contain a 60% increase of Serrapeptase (also known as Serratiopeptidase).
I have not had a chance to try this formula yet. We have still been able to buy the ViraStop locally. When I have had a chance to use this new formulation, I will update this information and let you know how well it performs for us.
Along with sharing my spiritual journey, I will also share products that have helped my husband and me on our physical healing journey. One of the products that I discovered on my quest to get well is ViraStop. I had mononucleosis (more commonly known as simply, “mono”) in my early 20s and with blood tests more recently, I learned that the it was the Epstein Barr virus version of mono that I had (for some people it is the Cytomegalovirus) and the infection had resurfaced. This made for sore throat and acute fatigue. The medical doctor did not have any treatment except for me to go home, rest and take care of myself. This product has helped reduce my symptoms and then, stop the virus and resulting fatigue.
You have to find the right dose for yourself if you need to take it therapeutically. It’s important to continue to take it for a week or two just as you would an antibiotic (although it is not an antibiotic, it is a natural, digestive enzyme). Some doctors upon learning you have a virus will tell you that you need to go home and “wait it out”. This is what they told me when I came down with it in my 20s. I was flat on my back for three months and slept an entire 21 hours one day.
I was so thankful to find this. I’ve heard it can also help people with Shingles which is the Chicken Pox virus that can resurface years later. Dosage can be very individual. I called the company and discussed dosage with a product resource person. They let me know that it is something natural for your body and that you can not be poisoned by it as far as overdosing. You can, however, start out at a dose that is too high and have what are called de-tox symptoms which are most commonly a head ache or stomach ache. I take about 3 or 4 capsules two times a day when I need it. I feel I need it when a sore throat comes on or swollen lymph glands in my neck. The instructions state one capsule two times a day. They must be taken on an empty stomach. It is especially helpful to be sure and not take them with any proteins you may eat. They work by breaking down the outer protein shell of viruses to destroy them.
I have another real-life story to share. First, a friend of mine was telling me about her sister in Keller, Texas who had been battling mono for 4 years. The doctors had sent her home. She would sit down in a chair and fall asleep. I let my friend know that her sister did not have to suffer. I told her about Virastop, she told her sister about it and her sister began taking it. Within a week, her energy came back. She continued taking it for a month and returned to her healthy self.
I have found that if the common cold virus or flu virus has already begun in full swing, it lessens the symptoms for me but doesn’t completely stop them. My husband took some at the first sign of a respiratory flu this past winter and it did help stop it within two days.
We have found it at a natural food store called “Natural Grocers” in Dallas, Texas, located off Preston Road and at a store called, “Sprouts” in Duncanville, Texas off Hwy. 67. You need to call ahead to make sure they have it in stock. It is also available online at Amazon.com if you cannot find any stores that carry it near you or just like the convenience of Amazon. This link will take you directly to the product on Amazon. You can also read the reviews there.
This second link is to a double potency (see the “2x”) for the product but it can be too potent if this is the first time you are using it. I usually get the regular potency (first link here).
