Acid Armor® vs Enteric-Coating
For years there has been a belief circulating that serrapeptase and other systemic enzymes will be destroyed by acid in the stomach if they are not protected. According to the companies that circulate that belief, the only way to shield serrapeptase from destruction is to use enteric coated serrapeptase enzyme powder that is coated in plastics and other chemicals before they are encapsulated or enteric-coat the entire capsule. This is supposed to protect the enzymes from stomach acids and release them in the intestines. However, there is no clinical evidence or studies that truly supports this reasoning.
