Serrapeptase benefits side effects

Serrapeptase often described as the “Miracle enzyme” but what are Serrapeptase  benefits side effects? It has been used for over 30 years by Doctors and health practitioners to treat a variety of conditions, so what are the facts about Serrapeptase benefits side effects.

If you believe in taking a natural product as opposed to taking drugs be informed about the benefits as well as potential side effects. Serrapeptase is just like any other supplement or drug in the sense that potentially you could have a Serrapeptase benefit, or on the other hand you could have a Serrapeptase side effect.


As humans we use enzymes to process food and nutrients in our bodies, there are three types of enzymes.

Metabolic enzymes accelerate or speed up metabolic processes and reactions in the body. For example a liver enzyme accelerates the breakdown of body toxins.

Digestive enzymes are produced by our bodies and enable food to be broken down into nutrients that our bodies need, a good example of a digestive enzyme is lactase, it breaks down lactose in easily digestible sugars.

Food enzymes are the final enzyme if the three, these are naturally produced in raw food, food enzymes process the digestion if food but when we cook these enzymes are somewhat reduced in their digestive ability.

 Serrapeptase is an enzyme

Serrapeptase is an enzyme, it is a powerful health supplement, enzymes are so important for our overall health, did you know that our bodies contain upwards of 75,000 varied enzymes all functioning together so that we can live our lives and be as healthy as possible.

Serrapeptase is a digestive enzyme or to be more specific it is a pretolytic enzyme meaning it can digest protein, Serrapeptase isn’t made in the body  it is produced by bacteria during the digestive process in the intestine of the humble silkworm.

During the sixties Serrapeptase made its entry into Japan when it was released as an anti inflammatory treatment to help with swelling caused by injury it was also used to treat chronic sinusitis, breast engorgement, bronchitis, tuberculosis and for clearing bronchitis.

Serrapeptase has been used as a natural alternative to pain killing drugs (Nsaid’s) because it is effective without any known serious side effects.

Serrapeptase also known as Serrapeptidose is a proteolytic enzyme separated from (non pathogenic) enterobacteria Serratia E15 discovered in the humble silkworm.

In Japan and Europe it has been used with much success for inflammation and pain derived from trauma,arthritis,bronchitis,sinusitis,breast swelling and Carpal tunnel.

Benefits of Serrapeptase studies

Inflammation: According to this study, following surgery it appeared to reduce inflammation and swelling but to a somewhat less extent than cortisone injection. Studies on Serrapeptase are based on post-surgery inflammation reduction rather than pre-surgery, in that sense the studies are limited.

Pain: During this study, a reduction in pain after surgery there was a corresponding pain reduction, came in around a one-point reduction on the Vas scale (1-10 scale)

Mucus reduction: This study showed a positive decrease mostly in the mucus viscosity because of the mucolytic characteristics of Serrapaptase.Basically Serrapeptase has been useful in breaking up mucus in lung sputum and nasal discharge.

Breast engorgement: Serrapeptase was used in this study and showed a marked decrease in soreness and breast tenderness.

Anti- inflammatory effects: Used in this study to reduce inflammation,swelling,and edema after surgery.

Serrapeptase and scars

Scars are caused by various things for example an injury to the exterior of the body or a condition like carpal tunnel syndrome can cause scarring around the wrist area of the hand. Scarring can also occur internally as a result of inflammation or in the case of blocked fallopian tubes in a woman there will be scars. Did you know that Serrapeptase is a fantastic enzyme that can heal scars internally and externally by dissolving the dead tissue without causing any harm to healthy living tissue.

Scar tissue consists of a substance called fibrin caused by an injury like a cut, a bruise or a sprain, scars tend to never heal fully so Serrapeptase is an ideal natural way to heal scars inside and outside.

Arterial disease

Arterial disease causes damage to the arterial walls resulting in scarring to the endothelium at the same time plaque is building up and sticking to the arterial walls a major part of this plaque build up is fibrin, Serrapeptase dissolves fibrin so it may be of huge benefit to somebody with cardiovascular disease.

Side effects of Serrapeptase

These side effects were taken from feedback from actual people who have used Serrapeptase

Stomach ache: Itchy skin:Skin rash:Minor head pain:Temporary whooshing in the ear.

Serrapeptase doses

Depending on the manufacturer the dose will vary, I suggest a weaker dose for less troublesome conditions (40,000 IU or 80,000 IU) In my case of severe Hip Bursitis I found that the 250,000 IU worked far better than the 80,000 IU, I also had high cholesterol along with the Hip Bursitis, both conditions are now gone (My cholesterol reduced by 50%).
