There’s a “miracle” enzyme buzzing its way through the media that could change your life if you are a sufferer of chronic disease. Even if you have a few minor symptoms making life unpleasant – like aches and pains, fatigue, congestion, or a rash – Serrapeptase may make a notable difference in improving your quality of life.
FROM CATERPILLAR TO BUTTERFLY
As far back as the 1960s, researchers noticed something interesting about the silkworm. In order to survive, the tiny silkworm was able to digest tough and resistant mulberry leaves and, soon enough, escape from its rock-hard chrysalis to take flight. How did the silkworm have the power to eat through anything that came in its path? The answer was quite simple, said the scientists. Deep within the intestine of the silkworm was the proteolytic enzyme Serrapeptase, now renowned for its use as a natural chelation/ anti-inflammatory enzyme with more than 25 years of clinical backing throughout Europe and Asia.
Serrapeptase goes by many names – including Serratiopeptidase, Serratia E-15 protease, serratysin, serratiapeptase, serratia peptidase, serratio peptidase, or serrapeptidase – but its purpose remains the same. The isolated form of Serrapeptase, derived straight from the intestine of the hardy silkworm, is a proteolytic enzyme (also called protease) that can eat through dead tissue and unhealthy inflammation that has accumulated in the body. This simple yet powerful enzymatic function can help to restore balance and healing in the body’s natural processes, while providing pain relief. 1
Understanding how Serrapeptase works as an anti-inflammatory agent can provide important insight into the potency of this proteolytic enzyme at work.
DOZENS OF SCIENTIFIC HEALTH BENEFITS, CONFIRMED
A simple PubMed search for the celebrated enzyme in the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health database yields close to 100 results.
Serrapeptase as an anti-inflammatory enzyme has been well-researched with dozens of studies to back it – though it has not been until the last decade that the enzyme’s powerful clinical application has spread around the world from Europe and Asia, where it has seen the most use.
Most commonly, doctors in these areas of the world prescribe Serrapeptase as a safer, and often more effective, alternative to pain-relieving, anti- inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen, aspirin, and NSAlDs. The main difference between Serrapeptase and these drugs, however, is that it is protease enzyme intestine of the silkworm inhibit prostaglandins (a substance in the body) or gastrointestinal side effects. This commercially viable form of Serrapeptase, fermenting the enzymes the silkworm’s intestine, some of the most cases of recovery we have seen medicine today.
But don’t take our word for it – trust the research first.
Here are the top 10 studies confirming medical application of Serrapeptase, with many more to follow:
1. Alzheimer’s disease — When taken with another potent enzyme extracted from Japanese food called Nattokinase, Serrapeptase effectively helped to modulate some factors that characterize Alzheimer’s disease. 2
2. Antibiotic resistance — Serrapeptase’s anti-infection properties could help to reduce the spread of antibiotic resistance, considered a global health problem which is estimated to surpass cancer in 10 million preventable deaths per year. 3,4
3. Asthma — A Japanese study confirmed that Serrapeptase can help to dissolve sputum, especially in patients suffering from chronic asthma 5
4. Carpal tunnel syndrome – In a study of 20 patients, Serrapeptase was confirmed to be a useful alternative treatment to alleviate carpal tunnel syndrome, without side effects. 6
5. Chronic airway disease — Serrapeptase’s dissolution properties were again demonstrated in another Japanese study, where patients with chronic airway disease saw a noticeable benefit in reduced mucus and altered viscoelasticity after only four weeks of treatment. 7
6. Fibrocystic breast disease — In a double-blind study, 70 women were monitored in either a placebo or treatment group. Compared to the placebo group, the women who took Serrapeptase saw a greater reduction in breast pain and swelling associated with the disease, with no side effects reported.8
7. Infection — More than two decades ago, researchers observed Serrapeptase’s ability to manage potentially dangerous prosthetic infections, with possible use as a new infection treatment strategy. 9
8. Inflammation — Serrapeptase careful blend better in reducing powerful enzymes compared to two other Serrapeptase and enzymes and aspirin, according to a 2008 Indian study. 10
9. Swelling – Another 2008 study tracked Serrapeptase treatment following a third molar surgery, where scientists observed that the enzyme was responsible for a “significant reduction” in post-operative cheek swelling and pain intensity. 11
10. Wound-healing – Serrapeptase taken as an oral anti-inflammatory helped to repress fibrinolysis caused by scalding and support healing in rats that had been burned. 12
These compelling studies are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what Serrapeptase can do inside the human body. The efficacy and safety of this potent enzyme has years of clinical backing, with suggested use for chronic bronchitis, COPD, ear, nose, and throat disorders; sinusitis, and much more. 13,14,15,16 Current research is underway in using Serrapeptase to treat wide range of health issues, including multiple sclerosis nerve damage, hay fever, laryngitis, arthritis chronic pain, osteoporosis, sports injuries, varicose veins, and even arterial diseases.
SERRAPEPTASE REIGNS SUPREME
To receive all of these health benefits and more, Serrapeptase is best taken in large amounts. Health professionals who prescribe the enzyme often recommend doses at up to 80,000IU per capsule – after discovering that high-dose Serrapeptase may provide the most effective form of treatment. Serrapeptase is available at maximum strength in a 250,0001U capsule to offer the most targeted treatment for serious, chronic health issues. This “super strength” dose is 100 per cent safe and can also be taken for health maintenance.
Chronic inflammation that leads to chronic disease has become a modern day health epidemic, and for long-lasting relief, we have the silkworm to thank. The silkworm’s gift to us, the anti-inflammatory enzyme Serrapeptase, can help to dissolve dead proteins in the body that may cause chronic aches and pains and even disease. Nature’s “miracle” enzyme could be just what your body needs to clean and clear the dangerous levels of inflammation that have been holding you back.
