MUCOS Pharma is best known for specializing in enzyme-based supplements. MUCOS Pharma has been developing, researching and manufacturing enzyme-based supplements since 1949. MUCOS Pharma was originally founded by Hellmut Haubold, an endocrinologist. Mucos Pharma was known as MUCOS then. Hellmut Haubold distributed his own vitamin emulsions, called “Mulsine”.
In the late 1950’s, Professor Max Wolf and Helen Benitez from Columbia University managed to isolate individual enzymes. Their research led to the discovery of enzymes that were anti-inflammatory and counteracted degenerative processes.
This new discovery was named after them, “Wolf-Benitez Enzyme Mixture”, which was shortened to WoBe enzymes and would become the foundation to one of MUCOS Pharma’s most popular products, Wobenzym. Wobenzym supports healthy circulation and aid in reducing inflammation and other physical injuries.
In the 1960s, MUCOS Pharma introduced enzyme therapy and drug delivery. Enzymes are essential for the body to properly function since enzymes are responsible for a variety of processes in the body. There are roughly 30 quadrillion chemical reactions every second! These processes and reactions include digestion, energy production, nerve impulses, breathing, healing capabilities after injuries, blood clotting and supporting the immune system.
