(Health Secrets) Looking for an alternative to steroid pain relievers that is just as effective? You might want to try serrapeptase, a naturally occurring enzyme that doctors in Europe have been prescribing to treat pain, arterial plaque, blood clots and more.
Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme, meaning that it digests protein. Not only does it help digest the food you have just eaten, it digests unwanted proteins that it scavenges in the body. This makes it ideal for getting rid of scar tissue, plaque and fluid that builds up after an injury.
Serrapeptase was originally discovered in silkworms that use the enzyme to digest the tough Mulberry leaves they live on and, more importantly, to rapidly bore through their cocoons and fly away if a predator shows up.
When the enzyme is isolated and formed into a capsule, it has been shown to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects and pain-blocking abilities that rival those of aspirin and the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), without their destructive forces on the stomach.
Enzymes are catalysts that enable or speed up biochemical reactions. Just like we were told in high school chemistry, enzymes do not get consumed by the chemical reactions they start. There are around 4000 biochemical reactions that require enzymes as catalysts.
This miracle enzyme works in different ways. It is able to dissolve and break down the fibrin by-products of blood coagulation, thereby controlling blood clotting. Current research suggests it can even dissolve the fibrin coating that tumors develop to keep themselves from being spotted by the immune system. This dissolving action gets rid of arterial plaque without harming the insides of arteries. Serrapeptase stops pain by dissolving and inhibiting the release of amines, the proteins that send the pain signal. It facilitates the draining of excessive fluid in tissues that may cause swelling and pain.
Serrapeptase has been a standard medicine of healers for the past 25 years in the East as well as in Europe. It has been found to be more effective than the common medical use of EDTA chelation for removing arterial plaque. Unlike many medications used to remove plaque or lipids (fats) in the blood stream, serrapeptase does not block the biosynthesis of cholesterol. Cholesterol in its pure form is an antioxidant necessary for all organs in the body. If its biosynthesis is hampered, long term health issues will occur.
In addition to its cardiovascular uses, serrapeptase has been used successfully to treat arthritis, fibrocystic breast disease, lung problems, sinus problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. It is recommended as an anti-aging agent simply because much of aging has to do with the accumulation of scar tissue, inflammation and disregulation. Disregulation occurs when the inflammation process loses discrimination and no longer differentiates between harmful and benign substances. At that point, inflammation leads to long term autoimmune problems.
There are many reports of aches and pains vanishing from people’s lives after using serrapeptase. This natural enzyme does not suppress the immune system in any way, and there are no known side effects, not even indigestion. There are many sources of serrapeptase in both capsule and tablet form, and serrapeptase does not require a prescription. Most practitioners recommend that heavy doses be taken at first until a positive change occurs. Then taper off to a lighter dose.
So why is serrapeptase not a household term after being used for 25 years and found effective, safe and inexpensive? The answer is that because serrapeptase produces no side effects, there is no reason for more doctor visits and more drugs to be prescribed. It seems quite unlikely for Big Pharma to push something like that.
