Used for over 25 years in Europe and Asia, studies and testimonials from people who swear by it show a remarkable improvement in many inflammatory conditions. Recent criticism has been countered with the assertion that most serrapeptase is not available with the correct dosage. One Japanese company issued a recall on its lower dose tablets early last year. Higher doses are, however, effective.
What is Serrapeptase?
Serrapeptase is a naturally occurring enzyme that in recent years has gained attention for its benefits with fighting inflammatory diseases, and as a possible replacement for harsher, chemically-processed Ibuprofen and harsh NSAIDS. It has been used for over 25 years in both Europe and Asia, with amazing results widely reported.
A proteolytic enzyme, serrapeptase comes from the intestines of silk worms and aids the silkworm in dissolving its cocoon. It dissolves any nonliving tissue and has been shown effective in many conditions, from arterial blockage to the chronic inflammation of arthritis. Companies worldwide carry the enzyme in various strengths but recently it is the higher doses that have been shown to be effective.
Conditions that benefit from Serrapeptase
Studies suggest that the use of Serrapeptase is effective in controlling many conditions that are currently treated by use of Ibuprofen and NSAIDS and/or aspirin.
● Arterial plaque build up
● Blood Clots
● Headaches and Migraines
● Inflammatory Bowel Disease
● Fibrocystic Breast Disease
Serrapeptase is effective in treating and managing many diseases and conditions. As a natural anti-inflammatory, it is suggested as an alternative treatment for conditions that cause chronic pain and inflammation.
Recent Criticism Countered by Higher Dose Results
Even with all the testimonials and recorded proof of improvement for these chronic inflammatory conditions, there has been just as much criticism. Early last year a Japanese drug company that has sold the enzyme voluntarily recalled its entire lot to counter claims of ineffectiveness of treatment.
Other research and medical providers say that it isn’t the enzyme that doesn’t work; it is the dose at which it was being taken and sold at. Generally sold in 10,000 SPU (Serrapeptase Units) tablets, the recommended doses to see miraculous results have been upped to 80,000 SPU. At that higher dose, the effects have been proven.
Serrapeptase effectively replaces other anti-inflammatory medications and supposedly does a better job. Many people and medical doctors swear by it, and there is more than one recorded success case of cure from serrapeptase.
