Serrapeptase - FAQ's

What is Serrapeptase?


Serrapeptase is a living protein that cleans up inflammation and inflamed dead tissue.  Serrapeptase is therefore a natural anti-inflammatory which works by helping to prevent and remove dead tissue and unhealthy inflammation.   This allows the body’s natural and healthy processes to function as they should, while reducing pain.

What does Serrapeptase come from?


Originally, this amazing enzyme was found in the intestine of the silkworm.  It was first discovered in the 1960s by researchers studying the worm and its utilisation of this powerful enzyme.  Silkworms use Serrapeptase to facilitate the breakdown and digestion of the tough mulberry leaves they consume.  The enzyme also dissolves their hard cocoon and allows the worm to fly away.

Serrapeptase is now produced in laboratories through a fermentation process using the friendly bacteria Serratia E15 to create a plant-based formula.

What does it do?


Serrapeptase digests inflammation, scars (non-living tissue), blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. 

Is it safe?


In over 25 years of studies, Serrapeptase has demonstrated no side-effects or interactions with medications and is safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.  When used in the lowest dose possible, it is also safe for children aged 2 years and over for certain conditions, as well as suitable for pets (dogs, cats and horses).

Has it any side effects, or can I take too many?


No side effects have been found in over 25 years of studies and usage. Many people take very high doses to speed-up the relief e.g. in cases of sports injuries which can be as high as 30 per day with no side effects whatsoever, except a faster recovery.

It is even safe for children of 2 years+ for a wide range of conditions: (asthma, lung problems, arthritis, etc).

How does it help so many conditions?


Simply because inflammation and inflamed dead tissue are the cause of most symptoms in the majority of diseases.  Serrapeptase cleans up this inflammation.

The wide range of conditions that respond to Serrapeptase include:

  • Varicose veins and other circulatory problems
  • Pain problems such as arthritis, joints, muscles and even M.S.
  • Lung diseases such as emphysema, asthma, bronchitis and bronchiectasis. • Sinus and other ENT problems
  • Post operative healing, lesions and cysts (breast, ovarian etc)
  • Arterial plaque, DVT (good for travellers) and blood clots
  • Migraines (vascular).
  • Enlarged prostate and many more (see studies).

Why don’t doctors prescribe Serrapeptase?


They do but not enough around the world, partly because doctors are influenced by drug companies.

Can I take it with wafarin and other medication?


Yes absolutely - there is no interaction or problem with warfarin or any other drugs on the market.  It has been safely used alongside drugs for over 35 years.

Can I take it for external scarring, how can it help this?


It will still work on surface scarring, just as it will on diabetic ulcers and the similar problems. By continually digesting the scar tissue, healthy tissue will eventually replace the old scar. It may not completely eradicate all of the scarring, but the worse the scarring, the better the visual benefits.

Can it be used on animals such as cat and dogs?


Yes, it has proven to be very effective on all animals. Many veterinarians are now prescribing it as well as arthritic pet owners sharing their own bottle with their arthritic dog to great effect.

Can I take Serrapeptase whilst I am pregnant?


Yes you can take it pre and post natal.

Why do doctors not prescribe Serrapeptase if it is so good?


They do, in the better medical systems such as Germany and other countries, with superior results compared to the UK and the USA. They have prescribed it for the last 25 years.

Can it get rid of my varicose veins completely?


It can get rid of the discomfort and the swollen veins. It cannot repair damaged valves.

How long has Serrapeptase been in use?


Around 25-30 years.

How do we know it works?


The natural Chelation Anti-Inflammatory Serrapeptase has had wide clinical use – spanning over twenty-five years throughout Europe and Asia – as a viable alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and the more potent NSAIDs. Unlike these drugs, Serrapeptase is a naturally occurring, physiological agent with no inhibitory effects on prostaglandins (fatty acids) and is devoid of gastrointestinal side effects.

What research has been done into Serrapeptase?

Over 20 successful studies have been carried out (see studies and technical information http://www.serrapeptase.info/Serrapeptase-Category/Serrapeptase-Research/)
