Serrapeptase is the miracle enzyme found in the digestive tract of the Japanese silkworm. The photo at right shows a silkworm hatching from it's cocoon. The Serrapeptase enzyme in its' saliva is digesting the dead material in the cocoon and is literally dissolving a hole in minutes, for the moth to hatch and emerge.
The brand of Serrapeptase that I order and used was Doctor's Best. I ordered and used other brands, one of them gave me an itchy fungus infestation on my feet. I believe it was a reaction to the mushrooms they used to culture the bacteria. I have found that Doctor's Best brand uses the highest quality ingredients, with effective research and formulation. They are also cost effective and do not charge high prices. Their products are a great value. Recently I changed my recommendation from this brand due to phthalates in their enteric coating, which are plasticizers. Robert Redfern makes a very high quality product that has a delayed release capsule. It is phthalate free. The name of his product is Serra Enzyme.

Dead tissue, fibrin, plaque, blood clots and scar tissue are the products of injury and inflammation. Inflammation has been found to be the cause of most disease as we age. Serrapeptase is one of the most powerful proteolytic enzymes known, that dissolves this dead tissue in the body. To listen to Robert Redfern on the Healthquest Radio Show click on the link. Robert Redfern has written a book on Inflammation and Serrapeptase.
Serrapeptase has been used for over 25 years in Europe and Asia to treat all types of Inflammatory diseases, such as Arthritis, Heart Disease, Emphysema, Fibroid Tumors and many more serious ailments, including Peyronies Disease.
Dose: Potency is measured in International Units and not Milligrams. For treating Peyronie's disease I took two veggie Caps a day - 80,000 I.U. ea. - Once in the morning and once in the evening without food.
Note:Serrapeptase and Nattokinase should be taken without food between meals, or one hour before eating. This is important, because the enzyme needs to activate in the lower intestine, so it can be absorbed into the blood stream, where it will perform its primary function. If it is taken with food, it will absorb the protein in the food and be passed through as waste.
