Our bodies have a love-hate relationship with inflammation. On one hand, inflammation is a natural response, necessary to protect the body from invading organisms. On the other hand, if not successfully treated, the inflammatory process itself can lead to limited joint function and destruction of bone, cartilage and other articular structures. Excessive inflammation also retards the healing process.
Proteolytic enzymes, like those found in Serrapeptase, reduce inflammation by neutralizing the sources of inflammation (i.e., bradykinins and pro-inflammatory eicosanoids) to a level where repair and regeneration of injured tissues can take place.
Clinical studies show that Serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues. Plus the anti-inflammatory effects of the enzymes in the Enerex formula of Serrapeptase are superior to other proteolytic enzymes.
While adverse reactions to various foods, allergens, and medications are certainly culprits, arterial inflammation is a big factor in many headaches, migraine or otherwise. Countless people have found Serrapeptase to be of great benefit as it stops the inflammation that is causing the pain.
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, IBS.)
More and more of today’s population are being diagnosed with various types of inflammatory bowel diseases. Whether this is due to diet, environmental issues, and/or stress, is a constant source of debate. Whatever the cause, the ability of Serrapeptase to clear out inflammation and dead tissue makes it very beneficial to those who suffer from ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease, and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). The safe, all-natural enzyme formula of Serrapeptase reduces inflammation and clears away dead tissues, thus relieving painful symptoms and allowing the body’s own healing system to kick in.
Tendon inflammation and injuries, various types of sprains, bruising, and muscle tears are some of the more common injuries associated with athletic participation. And, since more and more people from all age groups are getting involved in sports activities, doctors see an increasing number of these types of injuries.
Taking steroid-based drugs (e.g., Prednisone), or Non-Steriodal Anti-Inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), has long been viewed as the only way to deal with the inflammation these injuries caused. We now know that such drugs, while effective in bringing short-term relief, can have serious side effects over time.
Studies now show that the use of enzymes can help speed the healing of sports trauma, as well as help prevent such occurrences in the first place.
The German Olympic team members competing in Los Angeles found that those who were hampered by painful bruises and swelling were able to return to competition faster if they were taking proteolytic enzymes, like those in Serrapeptase. They got significantly faster results than those using NSAIDs, and were able to return to competition sooner.
In the l990’s, members of the German National Hockey Team began taking proteolytic enzymes in an attempt to shorten recovery time from common injuries. What they observed was convincing. When these enzymes were taken immediately after an injury occurred, bruises shrank faster, swelling was less severe and went down sooner, overall pain was lower, and full mobility returned faster. In addition, they found that taking proteolytic enzymes on a preventative basis, before injury occurred, resulted in even better injury recovery.
Over and over again, Serrapeptase has been shown to reduce the bruising, swelling, and pain that so often results from sports participation. And, when taken regularly as a preventative, Serrapeptase can significantly improve healing time, allowing a quicker return to activity.
