Serrapeptase is the naturally occurring Chelation-Anti-Inflammatory Serrapeptase. This natural substance is the Proteolytic bioactive serra enzyme that was originally discovered in the intestine of the silkworm. The silkworms use this enzyme to dissolve proteins in their cocoons. Now it is commercial manufactured by fermentation, enabling mass production.
Serrapeptase can be used as a health supplement. As it digests protein it digests dead tissue, so as blood clots and cysts, reducing them to amino acids which are treated by our bodies as normal waste products. Because of this ability to digest protein, research has sown that the enzyme has anti-inflammatory pain relief possibilities. Serrapeptase has a wide clinical use, ranging from pain relief from sinusitis – breaking down nasal cavity mucus- to breaking down blood clots. Clinical studies have shown that this enzyme prevents swelling and fluid retention due to inducing a fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-endemic activities.
Serrapeptase has a large clinical use in Europe and Asia, for over twenty five years, being used as a substitute for Ibuprofen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. As Serrapeptase is natural it is not a drug, simply a health supplement. Unlike the drugs Serrapeptase is used as a substitute for, this natural enzyme has no inhibitory effects on prostaglandins and has no gastrointestinal side effects.
Put simply, Serrapeptase is the second gift from silkworms to the human race. It has a wide range of clinical uses and no side effects. Serrapeptase is an anti-inflammatory and can be used instead of ibuprofen and other commercial anti-inflammatories.
