QUALITY: SerraNutrition® capsules are produced in South Africa. They are manufactured in a pharmaceutical quality control environment involving a series of tests from raw material to finished product. This ensures the best bioavailability and quality.
DELAYED RELEASE CAPSULES: Serrapeptase is sensitive to an acid environment and might get destroyed in the stomach. Therefore SerraNutrition® is delivered in double walled vegan capsules to ensure that this sensitive enzyme capsule is delivered to the intestines prior to being dissolved. Only delayed release capsules have been used in conjunction with the range of clinical trials.
COMPOSITION: Each SerraNutrition® Capsule contains 250,000 units/g of Serrapeptase enzyme activity and is free from Yeast & Gluten, Artificial Flavors, Colorants & Preservatives, which makes it suitable for Vegans.
SERRAPEPTASE: This enzyme, also known as the silkworm enzyme, is actually produced by a friendly bacterium found naturally within the silkworm. The enzyme is utilized by the silkworm to dissolve its protective cocoon without having a detrimental effect on the living cells of the emerging silk moth. The bacterium responsible for this enzyme is Serratia E15 and the enzyme is also known as Serratia Peptidase. The enzyme was discovered in the early 1960's and is now produced commercially through a fermentation process ensuring that the silkworm population is not affected. NUTRITION INFORMATION: SerraNutrition® - Serrapeptase (Serratiopeptidase) provides 250,000 spu of activity
WHAT DOES SERRAPEPTASE DO? The enzyme is described as a proteolytic enzyme and as such is able to digest certain types of protein. Amazingly, the enzyme only attacks certain forms of dead tissue such as cysts, arterial plaque and scar tissue. Studies have also revealed powerful anti-inflammatory effects of this enzyme without the inhibitory effects on prostaglandins exhibited by pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs. The study also showed it may help with pain reduction by blocking the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissue. This makes Serrapeptase and ideal choice for use with sports injuries, traumatic swelling and post - operative swelling. Serrapeptase may also exert a positive effect on areas where excessive mucus may be a problem improving the health of the respiratory tract in susceptible individuals. Pain and Inflammation affects most of us at some stage during our lifetime in both positive and negative ways. Inflammation is a natural response utilized by the body to protect it from invading organisms. Problems occur however when inflammation is not controlled and can lead to a wide array of health problems. The elusive goal of scientists has been to find a substance free from side effects, to reduce pain and inflammation. The research is now one step closer to become popular, due to the enzyme Serrapeptase which is being used by more and more physicians throughout the World.
