Serrétia is the world's strongest Serrapeptase with a minimum activity of 250,000 SPU's per dose.

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. Serrétia has a variety of different benefits that may help with the following:

  • Promote healthy sinus activity*
  • Provide relief from pain and muscle soreness due to over-exertion*
  • Recovery aid for strenuous activity*

Serrétia’s Use for Sports Recovery

NSAID’s do an effective job of masking pain and inflammation, 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 from strenuous activity.* 

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, and a shorter lasting amount of discomfort to applied pressure than their placebo counterparts.*

Suggested Use

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.

When is the best time to take Serrétia?

For best results, take the product at least one hour prior to eating and/or two hours after a meal.

Can I take Serrétia with other supplements?

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.

How long does it take for Serrétia to work?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Serrétia is comprised of 99.99% pure Serratiopeptidase, more commonly known as Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, and is produced by Arthur Andrew Medical through the isolation of the microorganism Serratia E-15. In Japan, Serrapeptase was historically prescribed as a drug, but here in the US we can experience serrapeptase and all of its wonderful benefits without a prescription.*
Taken on an empty stomach, Serrapeptase, a fibrinolytic (fibrin digesting) enzyme, enters the bloodstream via the small intestine. Serrapeptase supports normal fibrin within the body which enables the enzyme to support healthy circulation as well as normal recovery times from exercise.*
Serrapeptase has a variety of benefits which may help to improve recovery from strenuous exercise and support healthy sinus activity. Like other proteolytic enzymes, Serrapeptase serves as a healthy addition to conventional medicines.*
Although Serrétia contains highly potent Serrapeptase, it can safely be incorporated into your supplement regimen.* There have been no indications that one can over-dose from the use of systemic enzymes such as Serrapeptase.* However, it is important to follow dosaging instructions unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider.*
Enteric coatings are designed to protect enzymes and other supplements from stomach acid. Plastic-like chemicals known as phthalates are often used in this coating process. Phthalates are actually banned in children's toys in Europe and Mexico, so why would we ever include these in our formulas? Arthur Andrew Medical has instead developed an all-natural, chemical-free Acid Armor capsule. These capsules are comprised of an extra-thick layer of cellulose (vegetable capsules) with a micro threaded locking mechanism to prevent leaking. Acid Armor capsules have been designed to delay the release of the capsule's contents for up to an hour without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.*
The formula is Kosher, and a copy of the certification is available by request.
The formula is vegetarian and vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the American Vegetarian Association. For more information, please read our blog on where enzymes come from by clicking here.
The microorganisms used to produce this enzyme product are not genetically engineered organisms as defined by the National Organic Standards Board. Genetically engineered is defined as follows: Made with techniques that alter the molecular or cellular biology of an organism by means that are not possible under natural conditions or processes. Genetic engineering includes recombinant DNA, cell fusion, micro-and macro-encapsulation, gene deletion and doubling, introducing a foreign gene, and changing the position of genes. It shall not include breeding, conjugation, fermentation, hybridization, in-vitro fertilization, and tissue culture.
Yes, the specialty enzyme that makes up Serrétia is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA.

Preventative Uses for Serrétia:

Serrétia can be successfully used in order to support normal recovery times from strenuous activity. Researchers set out to discover how well serrapeptase could ease the discomfort of subjects. The German study involved sixty-six subjects that were experiencing pain during recovery. The subjects were split into two groups; one of which took serrapeptase, while the other was given a placebo. Three days following into the trial, the subjects that were given serrapeptase were found to have a 50% reduction of pain and experienced less discomfort compared to their placebo counterparts.
