Enzyme Improves Asthma, Allergies, Arthritis, and More

Serrapeptase, a natural enzyme, has been shown to aid asthma, allergies, arthritis, and other health conditions.  Enzymes are specialized proteins that act as catalysts for every biochemical reaction in your body.

Serrapeptase is primarily used by natural medicine practitioners to treat respiratory conditions, including: asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, tuberculosis, and conditions of the lungs involving excess mucus.

Serrapeptase is primarily used to treat respiratory conditions, including:  asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, tuberculosis, allergies, and in conditions of the lungs involving excess mucus.

Recent research by Dr. Nakamura and colleagues at the Department of Respiratory Medicine and published in the journal Respirology shows that serrapeptase assists the body by helping to clear away excess mucus from the lungs.

Next: Research on breast pain and inflammation, arthritis, injuries, and multiple sclerosis…

Another study by Drs. Kee, Tan, Lee, and Salmon published in the Singapore Medicine Journal found that serrapeptase has also been proven effective in the treatment of breast pain and inflammation.  They found that 85.7% of patients taking serrapeptase had a moderate to marked improvement in breast pain and swelling, while only 60% of those taking the placebo had a similar amount of improvement.

Serrapeptase may also be beneficial to treat other conditions involving inflammation, such as arthritis, injuries, multiple sclerosis (MS), colitis, and others.  In a 2008 study published in the Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Drs. Viswanatha and Patil found that serrapeptase was more effective than aspirin at reducing inflammation in animals.  Additional research will indicate whether serrapeptase has the same beneficial effects in humans.

Serrapeptase is also known as serratiopeptidase, serratia protease, or serrapeptidase.  It is available in most health food stores.  It is best taken on an empty stomach.  Always consult a medical doctor for any health condition and before taking supplements.

I think it is the first option visit to the doctor and then find information online. Now there are so many sites such as wikipedia, findrxonline and many more you provide good information. Thank you for sharing with us on the health care.
