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. Enzymes are highly specific in terms of what they act upon and what they do. Proteolytic enzymes break down proteins. But not all proteases can break down all proteins. For example, a protease that effectively digests food protein will not be effective at breaking down mucus protein. To break down mucus, an enzyme that is classified as both proteolytic and mucolytic is required.
