Serrapeptase is a chemical taken from the silkworm.

Serrapeptase is used for painful conditions including back pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, carpel tunnel syndrome, migraine headache, and tension headache.

It is also used for conditions that involve pain and swelling (inflammation) including sinusitis, laryngitis, sore throat, ear infections, swelling after surgery, swelling of a vein with the formation of a blood clot (thrombophlebitis), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

Some people use serrapeptase for heart disease and “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis).

Women use it for non-cancerous lumpy breasts (fibrocystic breast disease), and nursing mothers use it for breast pain caused by too much milk (breast engorgement).

Other uses include the treatment of diabetes, leg ulcers, asthma, and pus accumulation (empyema).

How does it work?

Serrapeptase helps the body break down protein. This might help decrease inflammation and mucous.

Dose 10 mg thrice daily for one month then reduce to once-daily dose for as long as required

I use it for my patients suffering from blocked arteries, sinusitis, mucus secretion, swelling and lipomas

It’s been called “The Miracle Enzyme.” Serrapeptase is an enzyme derived from silkworms. The Serratia peptidase works in the blood, digesting non-living tissues. It has anti-inflammatory effects and can help prevent blood clots. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic (protein destroying) enzyme from bacteria native to the digestive system of silkworms. It is the enzyme responsible for dissolving a silkworm’s cocoon.
