Serrapeptase is the enzyme silkworms produce to digest mulberry leaves and produce silk.
A synthetic form of this has been created which is a very good anti-inflammatory supplement.
I took this after a pretty big operation and suffered none of the infections that can occur in spite of taking antibiotics.
I take it daily on an empty stomach to help keep my arteries clear as it gobbles up dead matter like plaque in our arteries.
I am fast approaching the age when my Mom had a massive brain haemmhorage after developing high blood pressure at 37 and having her first stroke at 42.
Taking serrapeptase in conjunction with pycnogenol for good measure, I have pretty perfect blood pressure.
Serrapeptase really comes into its own when toothache occurs. I take double my usual 120,000iu twice a day and it just removes the pain. I don't know how it does it, but it is pretty brilliant!
Who wouldn't love something which takes toothache away! :-)
