    Dietary supplement

    Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic bacteria Serratia species found in the digestive tract of the Japanese silkworm. The enzyme is used by the worms to digest their cocoons. Serrapeptase has been used as a nutritional supplement in Europe and Asia for nearly three decades. The Serrapeptase is formulated with Serrateric™‚ a superior alternative to enteric coating that protects the enzyme until it reaches the intestine for optimal absorption.

    Promotes & Maintains Healthy Sinus and Airway Function

    Supports Healthy Immune Response

    The mucous membranes are a thin tissue layer or epithelium that lines the body’s hollow structures (cavities) opening to the exterior‚ such as the upper respiratory system. They secrete a slightly viscous fluid called mucus‚ which is actually a complex viscoelastic gel that lubricates and moistens the cavity surfaces. As a part of normal‚ healthy physiology‚ mucus is the first line of defense in the nose and lungs to trap and filter inhaled dust‚ pollutants‚ and other potentially damaging agents. Proteolytic enzymes such as serrapeptase can break down inappropriate protein complexes in the mucus‚ thereby favorably influencing its properties and helping to support the healthy balance between adequate mucous viscosity/elasticity and airway comfort levels associated with the mucous membranes of the respiratory system.

    Research with serrapeptase for maintenance of healthy sinus function began decades ago in Japan. Studies thus far indicate that serrapeptase is a safe and useful supplement to promote favorable viscosity of nasal and bronchial mucus. Two of the earliest human trials found that serrapeptase had favorable effects on upper airway viscosity. In these assessments‚ mucus was collected from participants after a 4-week supplementation period and evaluated using an rheometer to determine its viscoelastic properties. The enzyme’s action most likely involves the breakdown of mucus protein structures‚ consequently allowing the cilia (microscopic hairlike projections in the mucosal epithelium of the upper respiratory tract) to helpfully transport mucus in the airway.

    Serrapeptase can also significantly affect sputum viscoelasticity. In an investigation of forty individuals who were randomly assigned to one of five groups‚ six participants were given serrapeptase for one week. Sputum viscoelasticity was analyzed using a rheometer and researchers concluded that serrapeptase altered the “relaxation behavior” of sputum—meaning that serrapeptase helped support airway clearance.

    In a subsequent larger double blind trial‚ 193 participants were randomized into two groups and were instructed to take either serrapeptase or placebo 3 times daily after meals for one week. After 4 days and at the end of the 7–8 day period‚ mucus secretion‚ airway freedom‚ and measures of immune response were significantly favorable in the serrapeptase group compared with the placebo group. A recent study in which the immune system of rats was challenged further confirms human data that serrapeptase can be used for supporting the immune system.

    In a controlled and randomized open-label study of 29 subjects‚ researchers again observed the effects of serrapeptase supplementation on sputum. After 4 weeks‚ subjects taking serrapeptase had significantly less morning sputum with favorable viscoelasticity; furthermore‚ the serrapeptase group had fewer neutrophils in their sputum‚ signifying a more balanced immune response to maintain airway health.

Enzymes such as Serrapeptase are safe for most people when used according to the recommended dosage. People prone to forming blood clots‚ such as those with arterial fibrillation or with chronic venous insufficiency‚ should consult their physician before using Serrapeptase. People with other bleeding disorders‚ ulcers‚ those who’ve had neurosurgery or ischemic stroke‚ or those taking blood thinning medications should also consult their physician before taking any enzyme supplements.

    Love Doctor's Best

    I'm taking Best Serrapeptase by Doctors Best for inflammation, already seeing some improvement. My husband is also taking it. Will take through the winter months and most likely continue on. Can't wait to see what clears up. Research makes me believe that everyone could benefit from Serrapeptase. Prevention is your best medicine.

    Pros

      Reported to do so many good things. Do the research.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Helped My Fibroid Discomforts

    I started having bladder pains and spasms that were similar to a UTI due to growing fibroids...lots of intense burning sensations that moved around in my pelvic cavity (not just in my bladder). When pains calmed down in the bladder it moved to the rectum. When it left that area it went to the nerves in my thing. it felt as if someone was holding a small lighted torch to each of these areas. My gynecologist suggested a hysterectomy. I most certainly was not going to submit to that and the world of problems that tends to follow immediately after hysterectomies so I did some research. I came across information that indicated enzyme therapy can improve growth of abnormal tissue in the body. I started using Serrapeptase. within just 3 days of use the severe burning sensations diminished and continued to do so until I no longer felt the slightest hint of pain. After 30 days of use...no pain whatsoever. My tummy felt softer to the touch and looked significantly smaller. I continue to use it daily and plan to do so for up to a year until I go back to my gynecologist for testing to confirm the new status of my fibroids. Im absolutely amazed at how quickly they made a change in the severity of my fibroid pains which are now non-existent. I take 15 caps per day on an empty stomach...divided 1 hour before meals.

    Pros

      Come in large quantity for my high-dosing needs

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Best Serrapeptase

    Ive been taking Best Serrapeptase for over a year along with tincture of GingkoBiloba in an attempt to overcome tinnitus. Although my tinnitus is not gone I have noticed an improvement in my right ear and it has not gotten worse in my left ear. Its worth it to me to continue use of Best Serrapeptase and try other remedies to reduce swelling in my throat neck and ears.

    Pros

      It has no side affects.

    Cons

      It must be taken at least 30 minutes before food intake. Ive worked out a routine so its not a problem for me.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
