Additional dosage and indication information
Lately, we've been getting a great deal of inquiries asking for additional information on one of our most popular products, serrapeptase. Here is some additional information provided by the manufacturer (also see serrapeptase videos):
Indication: Each vegetarian Enerex Serrapeptase capsule contains 30, 45 or 60 mg of serratia peptidase enzyme preparation, providing 60,000, 90,000, or 120,000 U of activity, respectively. Serrapeptase digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. The late German physician, Dr. Hans Nieper, used serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients. Serrapeptase protects against stroke and is reportedly more effective and quicker than EDTA chelation treatments in removing arterial plaque. He also reports that serrapeptase dissolves blood clots and causes varicose veins to shrink or diminish.
Treatment of Inflammation/Pain:
60,000 U: 1 capsule, twice per day on an empty stomach or as directed by a health professional.
Treatment for Arterial Blockage:
60,000 U: 1 capsule twice per day on an empty stomach. Up to 6 capsules per day in divided dosages in acute need. Take the highest dose for 7 days until the symptoms decrease substantially, then reduce to 1 per day.
90,000 U: 1 caplet/capsule twice per day on an empty stomach. Up to 4 caplets/capsules per day in divided dosages in acute need. Take the highest dose for 7 days until the symptoms decrease substantially, then reduce to 1 per day.
120,000 U: 1 capsule twice per day on an empty stomach. Up to 3 capsules per day in divided dosages in acute need. Take the highest dose for 7 days until the symptoms decrease substantially, then reduce to 1 per day.
Serrapeptase is thought to work in three ways:
- It may reduce inflammation by thinning the fluids formed from injury, and facilitating the fluid's drainage. This in turn, also speeds tissue repair.
- It may help alleviate pain by inhibiting the release of pain-inducing amines called bradykinin.
- It may enhance cardiovascular health by breaking down the protein by-products of blood coagulation called fibrin. Conveniently, Serrapeptase is able to dissolve the fibrin and other dead or damaged tissue without harming living tissue. This could enable the dissolution of atherosclerotic plaques without causing any harm to the inside of the arteries.
Regardless of whether serrapeptase is used for inflammatory diseases or to prevent plaque build up on the arteries, it is well-tolerated. Due to its lack of side effects and anti-inflammatory capabilities, serrapeptase is a logical choice to replace harmful NSAIDs. Thanks to the tiny larvae of the silk moth, researchers have taken a large step toward finding relief for inflammatory disease sufferers.
