Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme from silkworms bacteria in their guts which is used by the silkworms to digest cocoons. Proteolytic enzyme means it breaks down protein into smaller elements (peptides and amino acids) so our bodies can use easier.
Dose: 1 to 2 tablets per day
Silkworms are as important as bees for the production of worthwhile antioxidant rich supplements which many believe has anti-aging properties. Serrapeptase, also known as Serratio Peptidase is an enzyme that takes form in the gut of silkworms during their transition phase. While in a silkworm, this enzyme does the job of melting the cocoon, in humans it works in the following ways:
Tissue repair process comprises of aligning of various lipid molecules in the form of congested liquids at the concerned patch. Serrapeptase enzyme dilutes the concentration of these liquids to facilitate the process of their drainage from the system.
Bradykinin is the key component involved in the transmission of pain impulses through the nerves. Serrapeptase blocks the release of bradykinin.
Serrapeptase works aptly at dissolving the fibrin plaques that gets deposited on the inner side of the arteries. Formation of blood clots in arteries is a common finding in patients who suffer from blood-related disorders.
Bacterial infections work in a more sturdier way when they own a protective biofilm. The biofilm is competent enough to resist the action of antibiotics. Serrapeptase (when already present in the body) would be able to stall the formation of any such biofilm.
