Over 40 years of research and use speaks to the safety and effectiveness of Serrapaptase. It has been dubbed “The Miracle Enzyme.” Studies and clinical evidence indicate that Serrapeptase helps improve post-operative swelling and healing, mucus and congestion issues, and ease the pain and swelling symptoms of everyday living. Each delayed-release Serrapeptase vegetarian capsule contains 60mg of Serratia peptidase enzyme preparation, providing 120,000 Units of activity. In Japan and Europe, it is commonly used (Takeda Chemical Industries). In the United States, Serrapeptase is classified as a dietary supplement. Serrapeptase helps the body break down protein. When the body can break down protein, it can decrease the swelling and mucous build-up that contributes to so much pain and discomfort. Serrapeptase is helpful in aiding the body combat painful conditions, including back and joint pain, varicose vein pain and swelling. It is also very useful in helping the body combat the swelling and pain of congestive breathing issues, laryngitis, sore throat, and ear aches. The Enerex Serrapeptase formulation does not use heat or chemicals in its preparation and manufacture, thus delivering the maximum benefit. Enerex’s delayed-release capsules ensure that the entire enzyme is delivered to the small intestine for maximum absorption. Due to its lack of side effects and lack of interaction with other medications, Serrapeptase is a logical choice to replace harmful NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, salicylates, and naproxen). And unlike NSAIDs, Serrapeptase is well-tolerated and does not cause gastrointestinal distress.
