Yes, this scary sci-fi looking creature called the silkworm produces Serrapeptase, which has being touted as a ‘miracle enzyme’.producing something so vital to your life. Yes, this scary sci-fi looking creature
All living things depend on enzymes to sustain growth and health.
Made out of amino acids, enzymes are the catalyst for life and are essential in every function of growth and repair in the body. What?! Did someone say ‘growth & repair’? Yes that’s right growth and repair! There are thousands of enzymes, also known as “active proteins” working every single moment to build and regenerate your body. So are they important? You bet your life they are.
In 1930 there were only 80 known enzymes. By the year 2000, there were 3000. The 3 types of enzymes are, food digestive enzymes, metabolic enzymes and clean up enzymes. They are either animal or plant derived. The 3 basic types found in living plants are protease (proteolytic digests proteins), amylase (amilolytic digests starches), and lipase (lipolytic digests fats).
Serrapeptase is a natural occurring proteolytic enzyme originally found in the intestines of Silkworms.
When the silkworm completes its transformation into a moth inside its extremely hard-shelled cocoon it uses this enzyme to instantly dissolve the wall of the cocoon, freeing it to fly away. Sounds yucky? Maybe not. It was only several decades ago that Japanese biochemists dove deeper into what was really happening and discovered just how unbelievably powerful this enzyme is.
What they discovered was that Serrapeptase breaks down dead tissue and protein debris from inflammation and toxins. It has no interest in healthy tissue. Instead it targets non-living tissue such as blood clots, cysts, scar tissue, arterial plaque and all forms of inflammation and all WITHOUT harmful side-effects. Its sole purpose is to rid the body of dead tissue. Serrapeptase is a detoxifying agent that reduces pain inflammation. It’s been a proven accelerator in the healing process of sprains, traumatic injuries, torn ligaments, and post-operative inflammation just to name a few. I can personally attest to that having gone through surgery 3 years ago and having taken Serrapeptase immediately prior to as well as post surgery. My dramatically reduced inflammation, minimal pain and rapid healing post surgery astounded myself as well as my doctor. I also believe serrapeptase has reduced my pain and inflammation due to my sprained wrist only a few short weeks again. Many other testimonials have been given about the amazing healing results of Serrapeptase.
Everything from clearing varicose veins, respiratory disease involving dense excessive mucus, miagraines, acne rosacea, tennis elbow, arthritis, adhesions, gout, Candida, blocked arteries, clouded vision. This ‘miracle enzyme’ Serrapaptase has proven to help people make outstanding improvements in their health.
When looking for Serrapeptase its important to focus on the UI Activity (International Agreed Units of Activity) instead of milligrams (mg). For over 3 decades UI has been used for Serrapeptase. If you don’t see UI and instead see U or SU, these are a new measure used to confuse consumers and are considered less potent.
