STOZZON

Pharmacology

Stozzon® chlorophyll tablets inhibit formation of odours from the inside and provide a sensation of freshness and well-being.

Highly odorous food and beverages, such as onions, garlic or coffee, may also be the cause for body odor, as may be the lack of personal hygiene or excessive perspiration. Metabolic diseases and hormone changes may also trigger an increase in body odour.

Dietary mouth odour is caused by metabolism changes – especially with low-carbohydrate diets. If the body does not receive enough carbohydrates, the lipid metabolism suffers. In order to counteract the lack of carbohydrates, the body produces so-called ketone bodies which are exhaled as foul-smelling acetone.

Stozzon contains Chlorophlly dragrees which has the ability to reduce the activity of certain protein-splitting enzyme and therefore prevent the formation of bad odours. It either attacks the odour-producing protein compounds directly or it transfers the decaying process along other routes even before any odorous compounds can be formed.

The mechanisms through which the chlorophyllin-copper complex in Stozzon® tablets works is partly known. There are three mechanisms of action:

  1. Bacteriostatic activity: by inhibiting bacterial growth in the digestive tract, Stozzon® reduces one of the sources of emission of bad-smelling compounds.
  2. Inhibition of the activity of certain proteases which are associated with the production of malodorous polyamines and skatole.
  3. Chlorophyllin-copper-catalyzed oxidation of volatile-sulfur compounds such as hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan and dimethyl sulfide.

Stozzon reacts with foods in the digestive tract when taken before a meal therefore results are expected few minutes after intake. For instance, taking 2-3 Stozzon tablets just before a meal that contains garlic or onions will considerably reduce or neutralize bad breath and garlic smelling belches.

For a systemic effect on other digestion-related smells and body odour, results are expected several hours after the intake of Stozzon. The condition might improve from day to day after starting the treatment and full effect might be reached after a few days. The effect persists if Stozzon is taken every day.

Pharmacokinetics:

The chlorophyllin-copper complex is poorly absorbed. Its activity is restricted to the digestive tract. It is completely excreted with the feces.
