Serrapeptase Benefits

 

Finding an organic alternative to a harmful drug you can buy in a pharmacy, is a real plus for many people. And if you are anything like me, then discovering the powerful anti-inflammatory and pain relief effects that the super-enzyme serrapeptase has, it is a huge positive in your life.

Serrapeptase enzymes have wonderful benefits for cancer patients, they help improve and guard your cardiovascular health and when combined with nattokinase, the combination presents a huge problem for heart disease – protecting the blood system, breaking down deadly substances and fighting inflammation. Serrapeptase has fibrinolytic actions, which means it breaks down fibrin in the blood. Fibrin is a protein that when acting normally, aids normal blood flow and clotting. When it is not normal, the actions result in hypercoagulation (dangerous thickening of the blood) and the forming non cancerous tumors.

What is Serrapeptase?

silkworm Serrapeptase (also known as serratiopeptidase and serralysin) is a powerful nutritional and the principal anti-inflammatory protease (enzyme) in its class, ranking higher (for its healing properties) than other proteolytic enzymes like nattokinase and lumbrokinase, to name just two. Serratiopeptidase promotes a healthier inflammatory and immune system, supporting joint health, protecting connective tissues of the ligaments and tendons. It also helps your lungs and respiratory system to function more effectively, helping to promote your overall well-being.

Serrapeptase is obtained from the isolated bacteria, serratia E15. In its organic form this is found in the intestines of the silkworm, but it is also harvested through fermentation for commercial reasons. In its natural state, it is so powerful that the silkworm produces and uses this enzyme to escape its tough cocoon after it has turned into a moth. It melts away the hard coating of the chrysalis so moth can fly off and begin its new life.

What Are the Health Benefits of Serrapeptase and What is it Mainly Used to Treat?

  • Heart health
  • Throat infection
  • Ear infection
  • Sinusitis
  • Bronchitis
  • Laryngitis
  • Fibromyalgia syndrome (extreme stress and fatigue, including insomnia)
  • Varicose veins
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)

That list is just some of the health problems that serrapeptase helps to treat. It is mainly used because of its natural anti-inflammatory properties, so it is used to relieve a wide range of pains and infections, from a sore throat to the pain suffered from the effects of arteriosclerosis (ASVD) – chronic inflammation of the artery walls, causing them to harden and thicken. The symptoms of arteriosclerosis are decreased blood flow, chest pain, possible arm pain and shortness of breath. In worst cases, heart attacks and even sudden cardiac failure/death has been reported.

Although arteriosclerosis can appear during childhood, most serious cases have been associated with in their mid to late forties. The problem is that when LDL’s (low density lipoproteins) are hindered, they cannot transport bad fats like cholesterol, triglycerides and phospholipids away efficiently enough, causing inflammatory thickening and damage to artery walls.

Prevention is always better than a cure, and we can see in the case of heart diseases like arteriosclerosis, it starts as early as childhood. Although at this point symptoms are not life threatening, its worth remembering that if someone’s lifestyle is poor, the risk of contracting heart disease is naturally quite high.

Protecting your heart health is vital, which is why serrapeptase is highly recommended in these cases.

There are also real life accounts of serrapeptase helping to clear catarrh and the mucus caused by the common cold and influenza. And ‘they’ said that they can’t cure the common cold! Women suffering breast engorgement and women with non cancerous cysts or growths in their breasts have also cured their symptoms.

Other health conditions that need further clinical studies and research on the benefits of serrapeptase:

  • Migraine
  • Other headaches
  • Asthma
  • Breast engorgement
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease & ulcerative colitis
  • Arthritis – rheumatoid and osteoarthritis

This list of health conditions is expanding all the time, as ordinary people like you and me report how this organic, immunologically proactive enzyme has helped them. And the more people that do come forward and express their honest opinions of serrapeptase, means that many more people in the future will benefit from it. The same is said for the benefits which nattokinase has to offer; the more people that know it works, shout about it, the more new people will know of its existence in the future.

How Does Serrapeptase Work to Treat Health Conditions?

Just like it breaks down the hard shell of the silkworm cocoon, serratio peptidase attacks dead cells, tissue and protein derivatives in blood clots, cysts and other inflammations, like hardening of the arteries (arterial plaque from atheroma – calcified swelling and inflammation). It gets to these crucially damaged areas of the body by attaching itself to a plasma protein found in blood, called ‘Alpha 2 macroglobulin’. Serrapeptase will only break down and absorb dead tissue – it is without side effects or the danger of affecting living tissue.

Serrapeptase also helps to dilute injury made fluids (pus), helping them to drain away from the injured area, which then accelerates the repairing and rebuilding of tissue. This incredible little enzyme does all this without damaging ‘good’ cells and living tissue, which means it is a powerful natural treatment for heart and blood related conditions. It can break down the bad stuff in your blood system, and just carry it away very safely.

Serrapeptase and Cancer

Firstly, lets clear up something very important relating to cancer and the effects of the serralysin enzyme. It is not a cure for cancer. But, studies have reported reduced swelling (in breast cancer), reduced pain relating to cancer and serrapeptase has been shown to prolong remission, helping cancer patients to live longer.

It does this by breaking down the fibrin coating of the cancer cells, exposing them to anti-bodies of the immune system which then do their best at neutralizing bacteria and bad cells.

Are There Any Side Effect to Serrapeptase?

We’ve discussed the benefits of taking this supplement, now lets talk about the dangers this enzyme might have on your body (if there are any).

What do we know so far about this isolated bacterium, serratia E15? Well, we know that it attacks dead cells and we know that it dissolves blood clotting. It is an anti-inflammatory that dissolves cysts in women’s breasts, it is a natural treatment for infections such as bronchitis, cystitis (UTI) and it is good for your heart health (reducing blood pressure and hypertension) and scales away the fibrin that coats cancer cells.

But, even though studies have been conducted and serrapeptase has been deemed safe to use for most people, as with any medication or supplement, a small minority of people may experience some kind of consequence that might put you off taking it. So although only a hand full of cases have been reported, they are definitely worth investigating and understanding, so you can make an informed decision about serrapeptase before taking it.

One person expressed that not long after ingesting their enzyme supplement, they experienced an upset stomach and vomiting. Not wanting to rule the supplement out of their diet after one trial, they did try taking a further tablet days later but experienced the same side effects.

Important: I have read the safety information on several brands of serrapeptase and authoritative medical sites, and all of them warn not to take it if you are prone to gastrointestinal problems and stomach upsets. Particularly if you are elderly.

So you must wonder if this person was either one of those people who does suffer tummy upsets and was perhaps elderly, or even neglected to read the label and therefore should not have been taking the supplement in the first place.

Another person (aged 70+) reported how they developed a cough after taking serrapeptase, which aggravated their lungs. Again, an authority medical website which I find very informative declares that this enzyme could cause mucus secretions. But as with gastrointestinal problems, this was very rare. Again, notice their age.

Conclusion About Taking Serrapeptase

  1. On the scale of things, serrapeptase hasn’t been around for long in the United States (only just over ten years), but the Japanese have been using it for many hundreds of years. Plus, Doctor Hans Alred Nieper, a German physician, used this protease enzyme until the end of his career (before passing in 1998), to treat patients suffering from an arterial blockage. Just to give you an idea of how long serrapeptase has been used by a medical professional.
  2. Is it safe? Absolutely, in most cases. To put things into perspective, the amount of people who should refrain from taking serrapeptase is minimal compared to the amount of people who are currently taking aspirin (for a heart condition), and who will eventually experience side effects later.
  3. If you are elderly, the risks and dangers of taking serrapeptase are higher than someone on their thirties or forties.
  4. Serrapeptase is safer than using NSAIDS (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) long term. (These are pharmaceuticals like ibuprofen)

Can You Use Serrapeptase and Nattokinase Together?

blood pressure monitorYes. And the beauty of it is, that serrapeptase compliments the healing effects of nattokinase, because it halts the production of yet another enzyme, angiotensinogen, which causes high blood pressure and hypertension. The benefits of using both together are untold, because of their complimentary behavior.

If you have constant headaches or migraines, or asthma, IBS, Crohn’s disease or arthritis, then serrapeptase can help you. Seriously, we all know how much work our body does every day, in particular our heart, which beats something like a hundred thousand times per day, pumping over fifteen hundreds gallons of blood around your body.

So you should help the organs in your body to be a healthy as possible for the rest of your long life. I use nattokinase for the purpose of improving my circulation and keeping my blood pressure normal (because I’ve had a DVT, and I also have a family history of heart disease), so I compliment and strengthen it’s healing power with serrapeptase, knowing that inflammation is kept to a minimum and always gets ‘washed away’.

So, if you want an organic enzyme supplement with potent anti-inflammatory healing properties, we really do recommend serrapeptase.

Where Can You Buy Serrapeptase?

I prefer and recommend Good Health Naturally, because of their high dose enteric coated supplements. Their tablets also contain MSM and trace minerals which aid absorption and how much your body actually uses.

    Hello Andy,

    Would you recommend Serrapeptase for my 24-year old son who has been diagnosed with C4 ASIA A spinal injury? Please.

    Thank you.
    Ann

    • Hi Ann,
      Thank you for your message.

      I trust you understand that I am not a doctor, a mere student and enthusiast of health. I cannot see why your son should not take serrapeptase, however, you should contact your doctor for confirmation.

      I wish your son progress and a speedy return to good health.

      Andy

  2. HI. andy
    I am fifteen years old, suffering from osteoarthritis, mild varicose veins in my legs,now swelling and pain in the joint of my left foot ,my doctor prescripe serratiopeptidase to reduce swelling and pain ,you think it willbe useful for me,thank you.

    • Hi Nadia,

      Thank you for your message. I would recommend serrapeptase to anyone with your conditions, and as your doctor has prescribed it as well, that is even better.

      Andy

  3. Judy Ballard says:

    I had bleeding ulcers 7 years ago, I take Nexium every night. If I don’t take Nexium for 2 or 3 nights, I get indigestion. I also have been diagnosed with blockage of the carotid veins and am interested in this supplement for the blockage. What do you think? Should I take it?

    • I would say that you have nothing to lose by trying serrapeptase Judy. It is a really strong, natural blood system aid, and so is nattokinase. You should obviously consult your doctor first before taking any new supplement, but I do think that serrapeptase (or nattokinase, or both) could help you. I say ‘both’ because one compliments the other.

  4. Hi. Just got my order of serrapeptase today and waiting til I have an empty stomach to begin taking it. I have arthritic knees and it was recommended by a friend to try. However, I have been reading about the benefits to the heart. I was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy a few years back but my heart doctor was amazed how my heart regained strength just by changing to a total plant-based diet. However, I do have left branch block and he said there was no cure to that. I know you are not a doctor, but do you think there might be a chance that serrapeptase could aid in this? Thanks!

    • That is great news Lori. Thanks for the message, by the way. I do think that you could really benefit from a treatment of serrapeptase, but please come back and let us know how you are doing in due course. Good luck. We truly wish you the best with your health.

  5. Diana Reese says:

    Hello, I have Thrombocytopenia and rheumatoid arthritis – is it ok if I take serrapeptase, mangosteen, shilajit and omega 3 all together? It might sound stupid, but I really wanna try all of these for my inflammation and joint pain, I don`t want to start with the methotrexate because of all side effects and think that all this stuff will help me, but please let me know if i can take everything together. Thank you

    • Hi Diana, thanks for your message.

      Please understand that I am not a doctor, so could not give you a definitive answer based on medical practices. However, I do take omega-3 (krill oil is my choice, as it is more easily absorbed by the body and is far superior to fish oils etc), and as you can take nattokinase with serrapeptase, my ‘guess’ (and its only a guess) is that it would be ok.

      I don’t know much about the other two products sorry. If it was me, I would try adding one in at a time and trialling. But be careful not to over do it with blood thinning. Although my circulation is much better, my feet and ankles are hardly swollen any more, I do get nose bleeds from time to time and they take longer to stop now. (that is because of nattokinase and krill oil), but I think you would be safer with serrapeptase and krill oil (or you choice of omega-3 fats), then just add the other products to see if you get more relief.

    Hi I was wondering if I could take these I will be turning 53 yrs old in a couple of months and i am having pain in my lower legs so that it could help with cirulation thanks

  7. Hi Andy:
    Have you any knowledge of taking Serrapeptase for non-malignant tumours which appear at various points in the body. Currently the person has a specific radiation treatment to inactivate them and to get relief until the next one appears. This person is married to an MD and has absolutely no knowledge of alternative treatments. Before I suggest taking Serrapeptase it would be helpful for me to have more specific information. (I am not a doctor…just a concerned family member.)

    • The information that I could find for you suggests, similarly to nattokinase, that serrapeptase is already being used to treat non-malignant tumours, and very successfully too. I will email you further information.

  8. bong urbano says:

    i have a lung scar this serrapeptase with enzymes can removed my scar at the lung

  9. Hi Andy,

    If you had an appointment to have some wisdom teeth extracted, or other minor surgery, would you discontinue use of the 2 products beforehand? And if so, how long before?
    Would you resume immediately afterward or wait a few days?

    Thanks,
    Diana

    • Hi Diana,

      The general consensus is to stop taking either product 2 weeks prior to surgery of any kind, then to start immediately back with serrapeptase following surgery to reduce the effects of any inflammation. For nattokinase, at least 7 days or more seems to be recommended as this is the main ‘blood thinner’. However, please confirm this with your doctor before taking any actions.

      Thanks for the message, I hope all goes well.

      Andy

    Will the pill help to unclog my blocked Fallopian tubes

  13. Hi Andy I have Tardive Dyskinesia , High blood pressure, and now teeth related matters. My medication i take daily includes 1 x blood pressure tab, 3 xdaily drugs for anxiety, stress, and dyskinesia. Total 11 per day. Botox injections every 3 months. Last year i developed an ulcer on ankle . After op to shrink varicose veins to both legs ulcer healed. Penicillen did not help. presently have abcess under a tooth, gum swollen ,painfull. Have taken 4 brands penicillen and have had it drained surgically twice. Do you think your combo. would help.I am in early 60′ s. Thanks for this site.

    • Hello, thanks for your comment.

      I understand what Tardive Dyskinesia is, but I have no information regarding nattokinase and/or serrapeptase on this. For high blood pressure, yes, the combination could be a great help to you. However, you should consult your doctor regarding taking these enzymes with any blood pressure medication. (please remember that I am not a doctor, merely a health enthusiast with similar problems) I feel you could benefit not only from the blood pressure reducing effects of nattokinase, but also the anti-inflammatory effects of serrapeptase. I wish you the best of health.

  14. HI Andy, I have a problem, I am 20yrs and I found out that I have acute ischaemic infarct involving right internal lapsule& basalgarglia. Can u tell me what can cause that problem, can it be a blood clot to my artery to my heart or brain. can i use Serrapeptase. thank u.

    • Hi Isha, thanks for your comment.

      I really would not like to comment or make any recommendations on your condition because I’ve never heard of it. Why don’t you speak in depth with your doctor about this, it appears to be quite a serious health problem. I do not know if Serrapeptase would help. Sorry I could not be of more help to you.

  15. ANA CRISTINA says:

    Hello I am from Brazi and I heard about this enzyme. I would like to know if it is possible that a patient with Alzheirmer’s disease take it. I also would like to know it there is any problema with the other medicines ( Exelon, for instance).
    Thank you, very much.

  16. Hi Ana,

    Yes, I think someone with Alzheimer’s can take serrapeptase, but to be sure you should always check with a medical professional. I do not know about the other medications, however.

  17. Rick Burton says:

    Can I take both serrapeptase and nattokinase at the same time with the krill oil that I am already taking (on an empty stomach in the am)?

    • Hi Rick, thanks for the message.

      Please be mindful that nattokinase is a powerful natural blood thinner, which can be used and complimented with serrapeptase. However, taking nattokinase with krill oil may bee to much for your blood system and may make your blood too thin. I alternate between nattokinase and krill oil myself, so perhaps try that before taking all three together.

      I hope this helps.

  18. I recently quit smoking marijuanna (6 weeks clean, 14 year habit/addiction ) and quit smoking cigarettes ( 2 years quit, 11 year addiction) . Will taking this enzyme supplement assist my attempts to cleanse my lungs? I’ve taken up cardio exercises, lots of walks/hikes, and drink licorice tea.

    • Hi Claudia, thanks for the message.

      Congratulations on quitting the habits, well done. I imagine you already feel better, health wise, but serrapeptase would also help your lung and bronchial system even further. Keep exercising, eat healthy and you’ll feel a little better, every day.

  19. Rick Burton says:

    Thanks Andy, That was my concern also.

  20. Hi, i am diagnosed recently with atherosclerosis and so called diffuse cardiovascular disease. I also have slightly increased blood pressure, varied from 120/80 trough 140/90.My cardiologist prescribed to me lipitor, baby aspirin and ACE inhibitor. I am only taking baby aspirin for now, as I would like to try everything natural first, having in mind side effects of statins, but also ACE inhibitors. Currently I am taking omega 3, vitamin D, 5-6 grams of vitamin C and 4 grams of lysine per day (Linus Pauling therapy). I am feeling better now. Do you think I should take serrapeptase alone or in combination with nattokinase? If so, which quantities. Please I know you are not doctor, but tell me from your experience.

    • Thanks for your message, I am glad you are on the mend. I would be careful of taking aspirin with nattokinase, omega-3′s or serrapeptase. Aspirin, combined with these naturals may thin your blood too much. Also, the combination of high strength omega-3′s and nattokinase, could cause the same problem.

      However, you could take serrapeptase with krill oil (my preferred source of omega-3 fats) and cycle it with nattokinase. For example, for 6 weeks take serrapeptase and omega-3′s, then serrapeptase and nattokinase for 6 weeks. Either way, I would talk more with your doctor about using any of these with aspirin.

      I hope this was helpful, and your recovery to top health is swift. Andy

  21. Thank you for your answer and time. For how long I should take serrapeptase/nattokinase? Until I clear the arteries or even after?

    • You’re welcome. There is no reason why you can’t take nattokinase as a preventative measure, which is why I take it (cycled with krill oil). As far as I’m aware, the same goes for serrapeptase. There are no side effects to either, unless you take them with prescribed anticoagulants.

  22. Hi Andy, I discovered serrapeptase on the internet a few weeks ago, and I ordered a bottle of serrapeptase which arrived today. Two years ago I had a mild stroke, with lasting consequences. The years before my stroke I had tias almost daily, but the doctor and hospital were not of any help in order to prevent a stroke. Afterwards the hospital subscribed blood thinners and chlolesterol suppressors (statines). I took statines for more than a year, then I read internet info about the huge side effects of statines, stopped taking those statine pills and also stopped with the bloodthinner. Although my arteries are in good condition I want to prevent internal blockage, so I decided to take serrapeptase for a while (empty one bottle, 1 pill a day). I wonder what it will do with the scar tissue in my brain, and also how much time interval makes sense before buying a second bottle of serrapeptase. In order to improve my blood, I eat a grapefruit daily. Thanks Andy, for all the good information on your website.

  23. Hi Koen,

    Sorry to hear of your health problems, I really hope they are behind you now. From everything I’ve researched and now know about serrapeptase and nattokinase, I can only assume that you would benefit from one or both. If you’re not taking blood thinners any more, there is nothing stopping you taking nattokinase as well as serrapeptase. But to make sure, remembering we are not doctors, you should talk to your doctor first.

  24. I’ve been researching Serrapeptase and Nattokinase all day and I’m excited to try them. I have many things this can help with me with. The one answer I am not finding is if these products can be taken long term. Or do you take them for 3 months and then take a break for 1 month? What do you suggest on how long to take them?

    • Hello Dee, thanks for your message.

      Although there is little research done on the long term use of both serrapeptase and nattokinase, there is also no one ‘body’ stating not to take either of them on a long term basis. That being said, I take them intermittently, on a ‘when needed’ basis. I use serrapeptase for longer periods, then swap nattokinase for krill oil, as that is also great for protection from ‘thick’ blood (as well as many other benefits).

  25. nabil Khan says:

    Since May 2009 I have been suffering with chest pain. All tests have shown it is not cardiac related. Endoscopy was clear, lungs clear. But the pain comes when bending forward with full stomach, walking faster than normal ( worse after food) cold weather, or nay sudden stress. Not been able to swim more than 50 meters without stopping and resting for 5 minutes between. I have stared taking Serra enzyme 250,000. iu twice a day since one month and I have begun feeling a bit of change in the pattern of my painful condition. My question is this. ” Can it really be doing some healing or is it my imagination, and is it too early yet for complete healing and thirdly will it ever cure me completely”. I shall be most grateful to receive your comment per my email above. I am prepared to pay you for your opinion. Sincerely Nabil

    • Hi Nabil, thanks for your message.

      Yes, I believe that the serrapeptase is doing it’s job, which is great to hear. I think if there was ever any natural product that could clear up an inflammation like the one you describe, serrapeptase is the one that could do it.

  26. Annette says:

    Can serrapeptase help reduce gotire

    • Yes, I believe it could help you. Plus, you may want to try taking maca also, as this can help to regulate the thyroid as far as I am aware. I have not tried it myself yet, but I have heard great things about Maca. It is another natural product, which is quite powerful. You can read more about it here.

  27. michelle says:

    Hi Andy,
    Can I take serrapeptase if we’re trying to conceive? I also have a fibroid. TIA

  28. Hi Andy,
    I hope you are doing well. My question involves my extremities. When I perform any physical activity like mowing the lawn or taking a brisk walk, my legs and arms will get sore. My extremities also have a tendency to get cold very easily, especially when I am in a cooler environment. It seems my body has a lot of inflammation which is chronic in my opinion. From my research the inflammation may be attributed to a leaky gut. I know you are not a doctor, but from your experience and knowledge would taking serrapeptase and nattokinase help with my health issues, primarily the soreness in my extremities? Also, how much per day should I be taking? Currently I am taking curcumin and ginger to help with my inflammation, but not too much relief. Even anti-inflammatories don’t seem to help much. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks.

    • Hi Eddie, thanks for your message.

      Firstly, I am sorry to hear of your troubles and I hope you find relief very quickly. I am sure that serrapeptase will help you in every area, it’s not a ‘targetted’ substance, so should help all over your body. As for dosage, 80,000iu is the normal dosage (GoodHealthUSA), but in the past I have doubled it, but only for a short period, when I’ve had problems.

      The same for nattokinase, double dosage, but only for a week or so, then back to the recommended dose. Nattokinase works really well with serrapeptase, but I am not sure you would want to take curcumin as as well. And I would also say not to take anti-inflammatory ‘drugs’ at the same time, you don’t want your blood becoming too thin!

      I hope this has been helpful Eddie, please let me know if I can help further, just come back anytime.

      Andy

  29. Hi Andy,
    Thank you for the quick reply! For the nattokinase, is that 80,000iu daily. Should the doses be divided into two or three doses throughout the day?
    On another issue, I had been taking calcium supplements daily for years, I was taking 1,000mg daily plus almond milk that was fortified with calcium. During this time my Vitamin D3 levels were low and I always wasn’t getting any Vitamin K. I stopped supplementing about eight months ago with my only calcium intake from veggies, an occasional greek yogurt or fortified almond milk. From what I’ve read, it’s a possibility that I may have caused calcification to my arteries and other areas of my body, which may be the reason for the inflammation in my body. My question is, will the serrapeptase or nattokinase help reversing the existing calcification that my possibly exist? Your comments are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    • 80,000iu was for serrapeptase, nattokinase recommended dosage is 2,000fu which is one capsule. For the calcification, I am unsure of a complete reversal, but the combination should definitely help (from what I’ve read, and understand). Regarding calcium, if you still require supplementation, you may want to look into magnesium oil. If you didn’t know, it is absorbed via the skin and provides a lot of healing power, including calcium. I generally use it when I get sore joints, as I am in the gym most days. It alleviates a lot of pain too. If you want more information, I can email you, just let me know.

  30. I was doing some internet research on reversing calcification and found a study done in the Netherlands with results that supplementing with vitamin K2 was shown to reverse calcification. What’s your opinion on this and can I supplement with K2 while taking the Serrapeptase and Nattokinase? Thanks

    • From what I’ve read about K2, I think you could also benefit. But I would be careful about using any more blood thinners at the same time. Blood which is ‘too thin’ can be very dangerous.

  31. Thanks for the reply Andy.

    Does Vitamin K2 thin the blood?

    • I don’t know too much about k2 (but I’m going to research it now!), but yes it does have anti-coagulant properties from what I have read so far.

  32. Thanks again Andy. Have a great week!

  33. nana akua says:

    Please I hv batholin cyst n inflammation on my joints do you think Serrapeptase can help me though mine arrived today? And can it be taken with Iodine supplement? Thank You

  34. hello can this product heal eye floaters?

    serrappatase

    • Hi Paul, thanks for the message.

      Eye floaters are a very complex condition, as far as I know, which requires quite an ‘involved’ solution. Although, you could try taking 4 doses per day (250,000iu per dose), plus you should eliminate sugars/carbohydrates from your diet at the same time. If my memory serves me correct, from my research, this should help.

  35. I take 80,000 iu’s twice a day. It has many claims to it but what I know it treats very well it inflammation pain. Lymph in the chest area, heartburn like symptoms, or bronchitis.

    It works better than anything I have tried not really sure why. I think it breaks down dead tissue/scar tissue that causes the pain instead of acting of the inflammation itself which makes it the best way to go about it. So I think it would be ideal for recovery on direct injuries/some kinds of chronic pain for most people.

    The only side effect I get from it is almost immediate hunger because 30 minutes after taking it I’d better have food ready to eat because my stomach is voicing demands. So if your prone to overeat anyways watch taking it several times a day or daily because if your anything like me 1 pill will equal 1 meal to be had. If you under eat try it because it really does press the hunger button.

  36. Hello! 3 questions: I have cataracts developing and also uterine fibroids. Will serrapeptase help clear those conditions? Do any supplements interfere with the action of serrapeptase (for example zinc and the b vitamins)? And is it safe to give serrapeptase to my 12 lb. diabetic dog who also has cataracts? Thak you for this service.

    • Hi Kathi, yes to all three questions. Regarding your dog, I’ve recently had correspondance via email with a lady who cured her dog of a sinus cavity and swelling. The only thing I am not sure of is the diabetes factor, but serrapeptase can help humans with diabetes, so I do think it would help your pet.

  37. Hi Andy,
    I am suffering from foot condition called morton’s neuroma for almost 3 years now. The pain is so excruciating that I am unable to walk or stand anymore. It was initially in my one foot, now the other foot also having similar symptoms. I have everything done that is recommended from resting, icing, physical therapy, cortisone and ethanol injections in both of my feet in series of 2 and 10 respectively. But it’s all temporary relief. I have also taken SerraGold in the past bottle of 60 caps, I took 1 cap twice day, it did not help.
    Would you please guide me how I can take this enzyme again and what would be the recommended dose, strength, and for how long I should take before seeing the results? Do different brands work differently in therapy?
    I really don’t want to go for surgery as the success rate is very less and the neuroma reoccurs.
    Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Sonia, thanks for your message.

      The maxiumum dose is recommended at 80,000iu x 3 capsules per day. For a serious problem like this, you may need this. I don’t know much about the condition sorry, but if it is something than can be treated, then cured, you only need such a high dose until you are happy. The brand I use (for my own supplements is Good Health Naturally), if they are the same iu’s as other brands, they should work the same way. You may also want to look at using nattokinase, cycling with serrapeptase as one compliments the other.

      Andy

      • Thank you for your reply Andy, sorry for getting back late. I am going to try the Good Health Naturally brand and going to take now 80,000IU x 3 daily along with Nattokinase. Is there any specific dose and strength for Nattokinase that I should be taking?

        Thank you again.
        Sonia.

        • Hi again Sonia. Just follow the recommended dose of nattokinase, as you’re taking it with serrapeptase. Although you can take more, it may ‘thin’ your blood, preventing coagulation, so be mindful of this.

  38. Hi Andy,
    I have eye floaters, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Would serrapeptase help? What would be the dose to take on daily basis? And regarding eye floaters, what is your recommended dose per day? Is it 80 000iu per dose 3x a day?
    Thanks

  39. Hi Noor, thanks for the contact.

    Regarding ‘eye floaters’, please see Pauls comment above.

    Regarding high blood pressure and cholesterol, yes, serrapeptase would help. You may want to consider taking nattokinase too (or even by itself), just speaking from personal experience. Nattokinase worked wonders for my blood system.

  40. Hi,
    For some time now, I’ve been having poor circulation due to macrocytosis (none of my doctors can figure out WHY I have macrocytosis), AND I’ve also been having erratic bowel movements (have already been found NEGATIVE for different gastro diseases, AND for food allergies)…I recently started taking serrapeptase (without any bad “other ingredients”), and my gastro symptoms got worse (btw, I’m NOT elderly)…
    To sum up, I NEED serrapeptase for my circulation, but I can’t seem to tolerate it…would nattokinase (or some other good probiotic supplement) help me tolerate it? Or would taking an enzyme BLEND with the serrapaptease do? (Btw, I ALREADY try to consume as much organic and fermented foods/drinks as possible.) THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR RESPONSE.

    • Hi Liz, thanks for your comment.

      I am sorry to hear of your conditions – my first idea is that perhaps you are ingesting too much ‘fermented/enzyme’ based foods. Your body may tolerate the serrapeptase on its own, but perhaps the elements in the probiotic foods are not mixing well. You could try taking ‘Blockbuster all clear’, which is a blend of serrapeptase and nattokinase, but I think (although probiotic/organic food is the healthiest option), maybe cut down on the probiotic foods for a while and see if your tolerance level for the serrapeptase levels out.

  41. Does serrapeptase reverse atherosclerosis or in any way reduce the buildup? Thanks

  42. Thanks Andy. I was researching decalcification of the arteries and read that drinking apple cider vinegar in water with meals will helps remove the calcium buildup. I know it works wonders on cleaning hard water buildup and lime deposits so I wonder if this might actually help. What’s your opinion on this Andy?

  43. Hi,
    Would you suggest serrapeptase for bilateral fallopian fimbrial blockage due to history of tuberculosis. ?
    Have taken treatment for 1 year.
    I have undergone hsg and laparoscopy. In laparoscopy it was revealed that some calcified material was also attached with tubes.
    What can I do to unblock them naturally.
    I have already failed 4 ivf transfers and am desperate to conceive. Please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi GSN, thanks for your message.

      I don’t have anything in my research for your condition specifically, but serrapeptase does break down calcified materials and dead cells in the body.

  44. Hi Andy,
    Does one have to wait 30 minutes after taking serrapeptase before eating or waiting two hours after eating before you take it? Also, does this also apply to nattokinase? Thanks

  45. Will serrapeptase help with fibroid? If yes how much Shd I take and Shd I take it in an empty stomach? Fm your site, I understand nattokinase will help with fibroid, can you pls tell me the dosage & should I take it in an empty stomach first thing in the morning?? Is it better to take both for my fibroid or just nattokinase is fine. Many Tks

    • Yes, take nattokinase and serrapeptase together, on an empty stomach or 30 minutes before eating. Blockbuster Allclear may be your best option, 3 capsules x 3 times a day. Plus, you may want to also consider taking Curcumin as this will also help shrink the fibroids.

      Also, consider eliminating all things containing sugar/glucose from your diet, and follow as natural a diet as you can. A ‘natural’ diet will work with the supplements, helping to treat your problem quicker.
