Serrapeptase (Peptizyme-SP) is a powerful systemic enzyme that supports the body's response to inflammation and the respiratory and sinus systems.
Serrapeptase 80,000 SU is a powerful proteolytic enzyme derived from a species of bacteria originally found in the intestine of silkworms. The bacteria Serratia mercesans produces Serrapeptase, an enzyme that enables the silkworm to dissolve its silken cocoon and emerge after metamorphosis. Serratia is now grown in cultures to produce serrapeptase by fermentation. Numerous research and clinical studies have demonstrated serrapeptase has anti-inflammatory, proteolytic (protein dissolving) and fibrinolytic (fibrin dissolving) properties. Studies also show serrapeptase promotes respiratory and sinus health, improves tissue healing and significantly reduces inflammation.
Serrapeptase also has the unique ability to digest non-living tissue that is a by-product of the healing response without harming living tissue. Fibrin is a tough protein arranged in long fibrous chains. It is formed from fibrinogen, a soluble protein produced by the liver and found in blood plasma. Fibrin tends to form circulating complexes that create barriers against the absorption of healing nutrients in and around areas of inflammation.
Peptizyme SP enteric coated serrapeptase supports normal fibrin metabolism, blood viscosity and blood flow. In addition, serrapeptase supports healthy inflammatory response by reducing metabolic inflammation, usually an asymptomatic inflammatory process in response to stress, improper nutrition and other environmental issues. There is also evidence of inhibition of C-Reactive Protein, a marker of inflammation that has been linked to cardiovascular health.*
Peptizyme-SP brand serrapeptase is enteric coated to survive the acidic conditions of the stomach without being degraded. This allows for optimum absorption in the small intestine and greater systemic activity. The pH resistant enteric coating disintegrates after it enters the alkaline environment of the intestine.
Most Serrapeptase brands on the market are not enteric coated, which means this low-pH sensitive enzyme can lose activity, and thus effectiveness, when entering the stomach. The enteric coating in Peptizyme SP allows the enzymes to survive the acidic conditions of the stomach, which increases absorption in the small intestine, systemic activity and efficacy.
Systemic enzymes are a key to a healthy lifestyle. Processed food, exposure to environmental toxins and occasional illness cause the body to use up these enzymes, forcing it to work even harder to synthesize these enzymes and use them in the many complex reactions that take place every moment in our bodies.
Serrapeptase supports our body's systems with the bio-energetic charge of enzymes to help them operate optimally, and address issues such as inflammation, excessive mucus in the respiratory and sinus systems and fibrin build-up.
Many people reach for NSAIDS (non-steroid anti-inflammation drugs) such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen to address pain and inflammation. They are effective but come with serious side effects such as gastric bleeding, joint/cartilage damage, disrupted metabolism, increased blood sugar, loss of bone and emotional disorders, among others. In July 1998, The American Journal of Medicine stated the following about NSAID-related gastrointestinal and metabolic complications:
“Conservative calculations estimate that approximately 107,000 patients are hospitalized annually for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)-related gastrointestinal (GI) complications and at least 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur each year among arthritis patients alone. The figures of all NSAID users would be overwhelming, yet the scope of this problem is generally under-appreciated.”
An all-natural systemic enzyme, serrapeptase is a biocatalyst which stimulates and modulates the body’s own intrinsic capacity to recover from injury—with hardly any side-effects.
