Serretia, a Pure Serrapeptase Enzyme Supplement

Quick Overview

Serretia is a natural supplement, from Arthur Andrew Medical, that is made up of 99.99% pure Serratiopeptidase, more commonly known as Serrapeptase. Originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, the proteolytic (protein-digesting) enzyme Serrapeptase is harnessed through the isolation of the micro-organism, Serratia E-15. Serrapeptase's inherent ability to digest dead tissue enables the enzyme to work as a natural anti-inflammatory. It has been found to successfully aid in breaking down scar tissue, cysts, blood clots, arterial plaque, while allowing for more fluid and natural blood flow throughout the body.

Serretia Comparison

What is Serrapeptase?

Serrapeptase has been shown to effectively reduce injury recovery times. Clinical studies show that it can reduce swelling up to 5 times faster than using ice alone. Serretia, comprised of 100% pure serrapeptase, has also been shown to successfully reduce sinus mucus and promote normal breathing. Serrapeptase promotes a healthy response to injury, which naturally declines as we age, allowing for faster recovery and lessening discomfort. Serretia is an excellent complement to any Neprinol regimen!

Why Take Serretia?

Serretia has a variety of different benefits that may help ameliorate the following:

  • Promote Healthy Sinus Activity
  • Faster Recovery
  • Muscle Tears and Pulls
  • Post-Surgical Recovery
  • Reduce Swelling

Serretia Benefits

*Furthermore, like other proteolytic enzymes, Serrapeptase serves as a healthy alternative to conventional medicines such as Ibuprofen, aspirin, and other Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), which may have detrimental effects on various organs, including the liver and kidneys.

Serretia for Pain Relief:

Although conventional NSAID's are helpful in inhibiting the body's natural responses that lead to inflammation as a result of an injury, they may also have unwanted and detrimental side effects, such as gastrointestinal pain. NSAID's may do an effective job of masking the pain and inflammation of an injury, however merely masking the aforementioned symptoms, only prolongs recovery.

The use of enzymes, such as Serretia, provide a better choice and are more conducive to increasing the speed of recovery. Serretia works by digesting any dead tissue that may accumulate as a result of an injury, which then allows normal fluid retention to take place and thereby reducing swelling and pain while enhancing one's ability to heal. Furthermore, while NSAID's can have negative gastrointestinal side effects, Serretia may aid one's gastrointestinal tract by helping it to better break down proteins and therefore improving overall digestion.

Serretia Suggested Use

Directions: Take 1 to 2 capsules with 8 oz of water between meals or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Serretia is an excellent complementary product to any Neprinol or Syntol regimen./p>

Warning: Do not take Serretia without the consent of your physician if you are taking anti-coagulants or if you are pregnant or nursing.

Studies on Sports Injuries

In Europe the overall use of systemic enzymes has been far more widespread than in the United States, however it is important to note that this is not due to the lack of efficacy of proteolytic enzymes and has more to do with each respective healthcare system. In Germany in particular, systemic enzymes have been actively used for decades and are even used by the German National Hockey team in order to treat and prevent injuries.

German Dr. M.W. Kleine and his team at the Sports Medicine Investigation Center in Grumwald, Germany, decided to look at 100 athletes in order to determine the effectiveness of proteolytic enzymes. Dr. Kleine took each subject and removed two cubic cm of blood from their anticubital vein. By reinserting the blood under the skin on each subject's right forearm, Dr. Kleine and his team were able to reproduce a hematoma (blood clot). 50 of the subjects were then given placebo pills, while the other 50 subjects were given proteolytic enzymes; each subject taking one pill three times a day.

The results speak for themselves: 35 or 70% of the 50 subjects that had been treated with enzymes reported considerably less pain, less inflammation, a shorter lasting amount of pain on pressure and had the hematoma disappear in a shorter amount of time than their placebo counterparts.[1]

Preventative Uses for Serretia:

Serretia can also be successfully used in order to prevent injuries or simply mollify the trauma of an injury or surgery. In another German study, researchers set out to discover how well Serrapeptase could assuage the pain and swelling of subjects who have undergone surgery.

The German study involved sixty-six subjects that had undergone surgery in order to treat the rupture of the knee ligament, which is often suffered by athletes and causes substantial pain and inflammation. The subjects were split into two groups; one of which took serrapeptase, while the other was given a placebo. Three days following the surgery, the subjects that were given serrapeptase were found to have a 50% reduction of swelling and experienced less pain compared to their placebo counterparts.[2]

*In another Japanese study, researchers made up of members from Tokyo's Metropolitan General Hospital, and Nippon Medical School set out to discover the effects of Serrapeptase on patients with chronic airway disease. Twenty-nine subjects were selected, of which 15 were administered 30mg of serrapeptase per day for four full weeks. The other 14 subjects were used as the control group and were not given any serrapeptase.

Following the four weeks, researchers found that the 15 subjects who were given serrapeptase experienced a decrease in overall sputum production (a mixture of saliva and mucus), a decrease in 'frequency of coughing and in frequency of expectoration'. As a result, the researches concluded that serrapeptase may have beneficial effects on individuals who suffer from chronic airway disease by minimizing mucus production, coughing, and expectoration, while enhancing one's ability to breathe.[3]

Frequently Asked Questions About Serretia

What is Serretia (Serrapeptase)?

Serretia is comprised of 99.99% pure Serratiopeptidase, more commonly known as Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, and is produced by Arthur Andrew Medical through the isolation of the microorganism Serratia E-15. In Japan, Serrapeptase is commonly prescribed as a drug, but here in the US we can experience serrapeptase and all of its wonderful benefits without a prescription.

How does Serretia work?

Taken on an empty stomach, Serrapeptase, a fibrinolytic (fibrin digesting) enzyme, enters the bloodstream via the small intestine. Serrapeptase breaks down fibrin within the body; its inherent ability to digest dead tissue enables the enzyme to speed recovery times from injury and improve circulation.

Why should I take Serretia?

Serrapeptase has a variety of benefits, and has been found to successfully aid in the breakdown of scar tissue, cysts, blood clots, and plaque. Serretia may help to improve recovery after sports injuries or surgery, muscle tears and pulls, sinus activity, joint mobility and fluid retention. Like other proteolytic enzymes, Serrapeptase serves as a healthy alternative to conventional medicines, which may have detrimental effects on various organs, including the liver and kidneys.

Is Serretia safe?

No serious or adverse side effects have been reported from taking systemic enzymes such as Serretia.

When is the best time to take Serretia?

For best results, take the product at least one hour prior to eating and/or two hours after a meal.

How long does it take for Serretia to work?

Although every person is different, some have reported feeling the effects of systemic enzymes in as little as 45 minutes. For therapeutic regimens, the progression may be slow for some and quicker for others. Serrapeptase has been clinically shown to thin mucosal secretions and limit pain due to injury. These effects are typically noticed within a very short time frame, though the other benefits of taking Serretia on a regular basis are boundless and will progress with time.

Is Serretia enteric coated?

Instead of using phthalates (plastic) or chemicals commonly found in enteric coatings, Serretia utilizes new Acid Armor capsule technology. Acid Armor capsules have no additional components in comparison to a typical vegetable capsule; their action is simply the result of smarter engineering. These capsules are designed to break down slowly, allowing for a more controlled release of their contents. This controlled release provides protection from the acidic pH of the stomach without the use of potentially harmful chemicals such as those found in enteric coatings. The capsules are made from dense vegetable cellulose in addition to a micro-threaded locking mechanism, which prevents premature leakage of the capsule's contents.

Can I take Serretia with other supplements?

Serretia can be used safely with other dietary supplements. In fact, it is recommended that it be taken in conjunction with Neprinol or Syntol for additional proteolytic and fibrinolytic support.

Can I take too much serrapeptase?

Although Serretia contains highly potent Serrapeptase, it can safely be incorporated into your supplement regimen. There have been no indications that one can over-dose from the use of systemic enzymes, such as Serrapeptase. However, it is important to follow dosaging instructions unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider.
