Exciting research shows that a natural enzyme supplement offers help for allergies, asthma, arthritis, MS, and other inflammatory conditions. Known as serrapeptase, it is an enzyme that is used by many health practitioners as a natural treatment for a wide variety of health conditions, especially respiratory and inflammatory conditions. Enzymes are specialized proteins that act as catalysts for every biochemical function in your body. Serrapeptase is also known as serratiopeptidase, serratia protease, or serrapeptidase, is known for its ability to break up excess mucus. As a supplement, it is readily available in most natural food stores. Of course, you should always consult a medical doctor for any health condition and before taking supplements.
Some of the conditions that serrapeptase has been found helpful for include: asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, tuberculosis, allergies, and other conditions of the lungs involving excess mucus. According to research by Dr. Nakamura and colleagues at the Department of Respiratory Medicine, Tokyo Metropolitan Hiroo General Hospital, Japan, and published in the journal Respirology, serrapeptase may assist with clearing mucus from the lungs by reducing its viscosity.
Inflammation is a causative factor for many health conditions, including: arthritis, traumatic injuries, multiple sclerosis, colitis, and many other conditions. Serrapeptase has shown promise in the treatment of inflammation in animal studies. In a study published in the Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Drs. Viswanatha and Patil at the Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics, Jawaharlal Hehru Medical College in India, found that serrapeptase was more effective than aspirin at reducing inflammation in animals.
