Originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, the proteolytic enzyme Serrapeptase is harnessed by Arthur Andrew Medical through the isolation of the microorganism, Serratia E-15. Serrapeptase’s inherent ability to digest dead tissue enables the enzyme to successfully aid in supporting normal scar tissue, normal blood clotting, and allows for more fluid and natural blood flow throughout the body.*
Serrétia has a variety of different benefits that may help with the following:
NSAID’s do an effective job of masking the pain and inflammation of an injury, however merely masking the aforementioned symptoms, may prolong recovery.* The use of systemic enzymes such as Serrétia, may provide an additional choice for supporting normal recovery.* Serrétia works by digesting any dead tissue that may accumulate as a result of an injury, which then allows normal fluid retention to take place, thereby aiding in a normal inflammatory response, while assisting one’s ability to heal.*
In Europe the overall use of systemic enzymes has been far more widespread than in the United States. In Germany in particular, systemic enzymes have been actively used for decades and are even used by the German National Hockey to support physical health.*
German Dr. M. W. Kleine and his team at the Sports Medicine Investigation Center in Grumwald, Germany, decided to look at 100 athletes in order to determine the ‘effectiveness of proteolytic enzymes’. Dr. Kleine took each subject and removed two cubic cm of blood from their anticubital vein. By reinserting the blood under the skin on each subject’s right forearm, Dr. Kleine and his team were able to reproduce a hematoma (blood clot). 50 of the subjects were then given placebo pills, while the other 50 subjects were given proteolytic enzymes; each subject taking one pill three times a day. The results speak for themselves: 35 or 70% of the 50 subjects that had been treated with enzymes reported considerably less discomfort, normal inflammation, a shorter lasting amount of discomfort on pressure and had the hematoma disappear in a shorter amount of time than their placebo counterparts.*
Directions:Take Serrétia with 8 oz of water on an empty stomach, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. Larger amounts may be divided into 2 or 3 doses per day.*
Maintenance: 1-2 Capsules per day.*
Increased Support: 3-4 Capsules per day.*
Therapeutic: 4-6 Capsules per day.*
Warning: Do not take this product without the consent of your physician if you are currently taking anti-coagulants or if you are pregnant or nursing.
For best results, take the product at least one hour prior to eating and/or two hours after a meal.
Serrétia can be used safely with other dietary supplements. In fact, it is recommended that it be taken in conjunction with Neprinol or Syntol for additional proteolytic and fibrinolytic support.
Although every person is different, some have reported feeling the effects of systemic enzymes in as little as 45 minutes. For therapeutic regimens, the progression may be slow for some and quicker for others. Serrapeptase has been clinically shown to thin mucosal secretions and limit pain due to injury. These effects are typically noticed within a very short time frame, though the other benefits of taking Serrétia on a regular basis are boundless and will progress with time.
Serrétia can be successfully used in order to support normal injury recovery times. Researchers set out to discover how well serrapeptase could ease the discomfort of subjects who had undergone surgery. The German study involved sixty-six subjects that underwent surgery in order to treat the rupture of the knee ligament, which is often suffered by athletes and causes substantial discomfort and inflammation. The subjects were split into two groups; one of which took serrapeptase, while the other was given a placebo. Three days following the surgery, the subjects that were given serrapeptase were found to have a 50% reduction of inflammation and experienced less discomfort compared to their placebo counterparts.
A proteolytic (protein digesting) enzyme with potent fibrinolytic activity which may support healthy fibrin concentrations.* It has been clinically shown to thin secretions from the mucus membranes, and also promotes normal recovery after physical stress, boosting energy levels.*
