Serrapeptase - Nature's most potent (and side effect free) anti-inflammatory!
Serrapeptase was discovered in the early 1970's in the digestive system of the silkworm. When the time comes for the silkworm to emerge from its cocoon, it regurgitates to dissolve an exit hole in the cocoon. Since strand for strand silk is stronger than steel, scientists were fascinated by the unique dissolving power of the enzyme.
Once they realized that a single enzyme was responsible for the breakdown of the protein fibers that make up the tough, protective silkworm cocoon, they recognized the potential for using it to dissolve protein tissues that have been linked to various diseases and inflammatory conditions.
The researchers were astonished to learn that, unlike other biological enzymes, serrapeptase affects only non-living tissue, like the silk cocoon - which is why the butterfly is not harmed.
In humans,Serrapeptase dissolves only dead tissues such as the old fibrous layers that clog the lining of our arteries and dangerously restrict the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. Since its discovery, many studies have been conducted, and the therapeutic uses of serrapeptase as a natural medicine are growing with each study.
Serrapeptase has been hailed as a tremendous breakthrough for cardiovascular health, and it is. Rather than cashing in on the myth of cholesterol being the bane of our existence, it actually lowers the risk and incidence of blood clots, strokes and sudden cardiac events by lowering inflammation and helping to maintain healthy fibrin levels.
According to the late German physician, Dr. Hans Nieper, the enzyme digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. Dr. Neiper used serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients. According to the doctor, serrapeptase protects against stroke and is more effective and quicker than EDTA Chelation treatments in removing arterial plaque. He also reported that serrapeptase dissolves blood clots and causes varicose veins to shrink or diminish.
Systemic enzymes are known to be biological response modifiers; that is, they help cell signaling, assisting immune cells in knowing what to do and when. Oral administration of systemic enzymes results in a dose dependent increase in the number and activity of macrophages and natural killer cells as well as various inflammatory cytokines.
Moreover, research suggests that serrapeptase holds immense potential in the fight against drug resistant microbes because it helps to break up the biofilm communities that harbor them, greatly lowering their resistance.
The ability of proteolytic enzymes to remove toxins and unwanted debris removes a tremendous burden from the body's immune reserves by lowering the demand for inflammatory immune responses. This makes MagnifZyme an excellent support choice for those with depressed immunity (such as AIDS or Morgellons sufferers) or autoimmune disorders (such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn's Disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis or lupus).
In addition to speeding the healing process, serrapeptase is known to have anti-fibrotic properties, minimizing scar tissue formation caused by abnormal thickening of the fibers that compose connective tissue - most often following an injury, infection, lack of oxygen or surgery.
Its ability to inhibit fibrosis and sooth inflamed tissues makes serrapeptase very valuable for managing sports injuries and connective tissue disorders, reducing pain and traumatic swelling dramatically.
By lowering fibrin levels in the blood, it erases inflammation and enhances microcirculation - which makes it invaluable for patients with arthritis, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, carpal tunnel, cystic fibrosis (CF), pulmonary or renal fibrosis, Peyonies Disease, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue.
Safe and Effective Pain Relief
While they may offer temporary, symptomatic relief from pain, swelling and inflammation, NSAIDs suppress the immune system and can have dangerous side-effects, causing serious gastrointestinal disorders such as gastric ulcers.
Serrapeptase has wide clinical use spanning over twenty-five years throughout Europe and Asia as a viable alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and NSAIDs. Unlike these drugs, serrapeptase is a naturally occurring substance with no inhibitory effects on prostaglandins and therefore no gastrointestinal side effects.
A review of the scientific literature, including a series of controlled, clinical trials with large patient groups, shows that serrapeptase has anti-inflammatory, anti-oedemic and fibrinolytic activity and acts rapidly on localized inflammation. This suggests that serrapeptase is useful for a broad range of inflammatory conditions.
If one considers the fact that anti-inflammatory agents are among the most widely prescribed drugs, the use of a safe, proteolytic enzyme such as MagnifiZyme should be a welcome addition to any physician's formulary and any patient's daily health regimen.
