Serrapeptase – What’s all the hype?

Serrapeptase – What’s all the hype?

How I came to hear about serrapeptase

Serrapepetase – is a powerful proteolytic enzyme formula that stands alone in fighting the combined threats of fibrin, mucus and inflammation in the body.

A friend of mine suffers from atherosclerosis and had 3 stents put in for blocked and narrow arteries. It all began with a heart attack because the blockages were preventing the blood from freely flowing. After the op he took the usual prescription drugs of statins and blood thinners but was not getting any better. Eventually he had another heart attack.

serrapeptaseHe decided to do some research and found serrapeptase. I remember him telling me that he had purchased them and I was waiting to hear of the results. Approximately a month a later he excitedly announced, “They work!”. He was able to walk further without chronic breathlessness and pain. For several years he’s been unable to walk very far before the pain kicked in.

So what’s all about

From my research it seems you can take serrapeptase for any condition. It works by breaking down excess mucus, in the body and reducing inflammation. It also devours non-living tissue without causing any damage to living tissue. So if you have pain anywhere in your body, then this supplement will help you.

It has no known side effects, however, depending on how toxic you are, you can feel slightly worse before feeling better. This happens to most people when going through a detoxification process.

Known conditions that serrapeptase helps:


It is believed that serrapeptase can play a key role in dissolving the outer protective layers of cancer cells and tumors to enable the immune system and other cancer fighters to better attack the cancer.

Also where there is inflammation, cancer can follow. So taking the enzyme could potentially help to prevent cancer because of its anti-inflammatory properties.


Serrapeptase effectively removes atherosclerotic plaque without hurting any of the healthy cells along the arterial wall. It can also dissolve blood clots and reduce varicose veins according to studies. [1]

Pain, Edema and Swelling

Serrapeptase has been approved as a standard remedy in many European countries for swelling. A double-blind study on the enzyme found that it could reduce swelling by up to 50% in post-operative patients. Patients taking serrapeptase experienced statistically significant less pain than the control groups. By the 10th day of the study, all patients taking the supplement were completely pain-free. [1]

Infections in the Ear, Nose, and Throat

The ear, nose and throat are all connected by the eustachian tube which is lined with mucus. This can build up causing deafness, ear infections, catarrh and sinusitis. The enzyme works by reducing the viscosity (thickness) of mucus which facilitates drainage allowing the immune system to heal. [1]

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Studies confirm the use of this enzyme for the reduction of symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. [2]

Other applications being studied

Serrapeptase is currently being studied and used for nerve damage, Multiple Sclerosis, cancer, chronic ear infections, hay fever, lung congestion, swollen glands, laryngitis, rhinitis, chronic pain, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, back and neck pain, diabetes, ulcers, osteoporosis, prostate problems, sports injuries, post-operative scars and lesions, varicose veins, arterial diseases, angina, blood clots and anti-aging.

This is not an exhaustive list but gives an indication of the many projects taking place. Basically, if you have any sort of medical problem or pain, then it won’t hurt to try them. I have found no contraindications, so they are safe to take even with other medications. I heard one doctor say they can be taken during pregnancy as well.

One of the positive side effects is improved sexual experience due to improved blood circulation. serrapeptase

How Does Serrapeptase Work?

Serrapeptase is an immunologically active enzyme produced from silkworms. It can bind itself to the alpha 2 macro-globulin in our plasma where it is shielded from the immune system while retaining its enzymatic activity. It is this same type of powerful yet specific action that allows silkworms to eat its own protective cocoon, digest it without any side effects and fly away. Amazingly, serrapeptase has the distinct ability to digest only non-living tissue allowing the old toxic layers that clog the digestive system and the lining of our arteries to dissolve. This is one reason why it’s so good at keeping arterial deposits from building up after heart surgery.
