Noscasure™

Noscasure™ is our exclusive brand of high dose noscapine. Noscasure capsules contain 150 mg of pure noscapine, with no additives, no fillers, no binders, and no flowing agents added. Noscapine has been safely used in medicine for over 100 years. Its fame and widespread use originate with its cough-suppressing effects. Since the 1990’s, scientists have discovered noscapine’s benefits as a potent cancer treatment, effective against numerous types of cancer. In addition, it has shown unparalleled benefit in treating stroke patients. More recently, it is being studied for treating Hereditary Spastic Paraplegias (HSP) and for Alzheimer’s disease.

Noscasure’s active ingredient, noscapine, has so far been tested and shown activity against the following types of cancer: glioblastoma (brain tumors), thymoma, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, and some neuroendocrine tumors. Since noscapine has no patent protection, there is no incentive for pharma companies to develop it as a cancer treatment. Instead, the pharma industry is making efforts to synthetically modify noscapine and create “new” drugs that can be patented. We are proud to be able to bring you Noscasure, our exclusive brand of pure noscapine, enabling you to benefit from these valuable medical breakthroughs in a timely manner.

Which is better, noscapine base or noscapine hcl?

Noscapine in its natural form is called “noscapine base”. However, the base does not dissolve in water, hence it is processed by some producers into a salt form, called noscapine hydrochloride (hcl), which dissolves in water. This defines it as “water soluble”. While “water soluble” molecules are generally better absorbed, noscapine is an exception. Studies have shown that the noscapine in its naturally-existing “base” form is far-better absorbed than noscapine hydrochloride (hcl). Our Noscasure™ product contains only the superior-absorbing noscapine base.
