The Miracle Enzyme
Everyone experiences pain. But whether from an injury or disease as we age, pain can be debilitating and limit our freedom. Serrapeptase works in different ways by inhibiting a chemical our body produces during injury or chronic inflammation to block pain, restoring our normal tolerance to pain, reducing the resulting inflammation, and breaking down mucous that occurs in sinusitis. This enzyme has many applications when pain is experienced.
Enerex Serrapeptase uses a high activity enzyme for greater effectiveness and our special Delayed Release capsule protects the enzyme from destruction by stomach acid to ensure you get the relief you require.
What do a stuffy nose, an infection and post-operative swelling have in common? They’re all initially caused by inflammation.
Our bodies have a love-hate relationship with inflammation: it is a natural response necessary to protect the body and aid the healing process, but it also causes pain and swelling, mucous build-up, and increases the symptoms of infections such as redness, burning and heat. Excessive inflammation in the body can also limit joint function, destroy bone, and lead to heart and nervous system trouble.
The search to find a natural remedy without side-effects to reduce pain and inflammation associated with certain conditions resulted in the discovery of Serrapeptase. Enerex was the first company to introduce Serrapeptase to Canadians.
Enerex Serrapeptase is proven to reduce pain, mucous build-up, and symptoms of inflammation, including those from post-operative swelling.
Serrapeptase, which is classified as a “proteolytic enzyme, is thought to work in four ways:
- It relieves chronic pain by blocking the release of the body’s pain-inducing amines (natural chemicals) in inflamed tissue.
- It reduces inflammation by thinning the fluids formed from inflammatory conditions, and helps the fluid to drain. This also speeds tissue repair.
- As a proteolytic enzyme it breaks down dead or damaged tissue (without harming living tissue) dissolving these protein by-products.
- Acts as a “mucolytic enzyme” that helps break down mucous, which is protein based.
What is Serrapeptase?
Serrapeptase, also called Serrapeptidase or Serratio Peptidase, is a natural enzyme that breaks down or “digests” dead tissue or particles made of protein.
Who should take Serrapeptase?
If you have chronic inflammation or pain, Serrapeptase acts as an anti-inflammatory. It does not have the side effects associated with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). If you have swelling, it can reduce fluid retention (edema), and post-operative swelling, and can help if you have sinus issues like sinusitis or throat ailments.
Research has shown that Serrapeptase may also help to break up and remove other types of disruptive tissue and build-up that may cause other health issues, and to clear blockages that create pain and impair wellness. Serrapeptase research studies have been completed for carpal tunnel syndrome and cystic breast disease. Serrapeptase has been used to support antibiotics because it can dissolve bacterial “biofilms” (a common cause of persistent infections) and increase the absorption/concentration of the antibiotic in the body.
Disclaimer: Enerex Serrapeptase has not been studied for these conditions and does not claim that it will assist in these cases.
Proof of potency
Over 30 years of clinical research speaks to the safety and effectiveness of Serrapeptase for a broad spectrum of ailments. Physicians throughout Asia and Europe have recognized the anti-inflammatory and pain-blocking benefits of this naturally occurring substance, and are using Serrapeptase as an alternative.
The Enerex Advantage
Enerex Serrapeptase is derived from controlled fermentation of a strain of healthy bacteria called Serratia marcescens sp. E-15. It is not produced from silkworms. Serrapeptase is a type of enzyme that is transported directly from your intestines into your bloodstream, and therefore after taking a capsule it is delivered to the problem areas in your body quickly. Our supplements use a special DR (delayed release) capsule that protects and allows the delicate enzyme to pass through your stomach and its acidic environment intact to be released and absorbed in the small intestines.
What`s an Enteric Coating?
An enteric coating is like a barrier applied to oral tablets/caplets and capsules which controls the location in the digestive system where it is absorbed. Enteric refers to the small intestine, therefore enteric coatings prevent release of medicinal ingredient (Serrapeptase) before it reaches the small intestine. For example, it will not dissolve in the acidic juices of the stomach (pH ~3), but in the alkaline (pH 7-9) environment present in the small intestine. To obtain a desired action or avoid the side effects enteric coating is used in drugs that have an irritant effect on the stomach (Aspirin), or are acid-unstable (Serrappetase). Cellulose and algae complex is used for enteric coating of Serrapeptase.
The entire capsule and and its contents are Guaranteed Pure: Contains no animal substances, artificial preservatives, colours or flavours, added starch, sugar, lactose, milk, salt, yeast, wheat or gluten.
Phthalate Free Enteric Coating
Since 2009, Enerex have been using Phthalate free enteric coating. The new coating is vegetarian and is sourced from seaweed/algae.
This product is both vegan and vegetarian since the capsule, and its excipients are all vegetarian sourced. The enzyme cannot be classified as vegetarian or non vegetarian as enzymes are enzymes which are reproduced in laboratories and non synthetic. Enzymes are made from Amino Acids and are a class of proteins. Just like bacteria, they are not vegetables nor animals. They are in a class by themselves.
