Why don’t we hear about the many healing supplements anymore – like serrapeptase?
Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme, which means that it breaks down proteins into amino acids– and you know how important amino acids and protein are for your health.
Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins that play many critical roles in your body, such as building proteins, hormones, and neurotransmitters.
Sounds important to me.
In the 1950s, we started using proteolytic enzymes like trypsin, chymotrypsin, and bromelain because we discovered that they had anti-inflammatory effects.
In the late 1960s in Japan, researchers observed that serrapeptase had these anti-inflammatory effects when they isolated the enzyme from the silkworm.
After that, researchers in Europe and Japan proposed that serrapeptase was the most effective proteolytic enzyme for reducing inflammation.
Today, researchers have determined that serrapeptase has many promising health benefits – including removing plaque from your arteries.
Serrapeptase has been shown in research studies to:
- reduce pain — a common symptom of inflammation;
- treat atherosclerosis, a condition where plaque builds up inside your arteries by breaking down dead or damaged tissue and fibrin — a tough protein formed in blood clots;
- clear mucus and reduce inflammation in the lungs in people with chronic respiratory diseases;
- reduce mucus production and pain from ear, nose, and throat conditions;
- reduce swelling and pain in people following dental surgery;
- decrease your risk of bacterial infections by improving the efficacy of antibiotics;
- the combination with antibiotics reduces and/or stops the progression of infection — especially in antibiotic-resistant bacteria;
- assist with bronchitis and COPD by dilating the air passages, which increases mucus clearance.
Serrapeptase is an enzyme that’s been used in Japan and Europe for decades for pain and inflammation.
It has been shown to decrease your risk of infections, prevent blood clots, and aide with many chronic respiratory diseases.
While Big Pharma focuses more on promoting addictive food chemicals, drugs and vaccines today, less research is being done on medications and supplements that actually help your body. That said, many people are experiencing positive effects supplementing with serrapeptase.
There are very few published studies on the potential adverse reactions, so be cautious if taking it with blood thinners — such as Warfarin and aspirin. If you are on blood thinning medications, inform your medical doctor that you may be taking serrapeptase.
Do your own research on the benefits of serrapeptase – yet another supplement that can help maintain your health.
