Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme, which means that it breaks down protein into smaller components (peptides and amino acids) that the body can re-use. It is derived from the digestive system of the silk worm, which regurgitates serrapeptase to break free from its cocoon. Although the Serrapeptase enzyme was discovered in silk worms, no silkworms are actually used in the manufacturing process of commercially available Serrapeptase supplements.
The enzymes are extracted from Serratia bacteria, and grown in controlled environments without the use of a silkworm host.
Chronic inflammation is linked to virtually every disease in one way or another. More often than not, it is the eventual signs of inflammation that alert people to the presence of disease. By that time, it has usually been present in the body for a while.Here are just a few of the illnesses that may result from prolonged or chronic inflammation: Alzheimer’s disease. Brain cells may be destroyed by chronically elevated levels of inflammation. Congestive heart failure. Chronic periods of inflammation may cause the heart muscle to wear out and waste away. Fibromyalgia. Inflammation attacks the connective tissues, leading to pain. Asthma. Small cytokines may cause autoimmune reactions to flare up in the lining of the airways.Autism. When inflammatory cytokines are released in the brain, it may arrest the development of the right hemisphere. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The esophagus and digestive tract become riddled with inflammation, most often in response to food sensitivities and pH levels.Arthritis. Inflammatory cytokines may cause cellular activity that leads to the destruction of synovial fluid and joint cartilage. Neuropathy. Inflammation induces autoimmune reactions that attack the vascular, myelin, and connective tissues, potentially causing nerve irritation.Psoriasis. Presence of chronic inflammation levels in the liver and gut may lead to poor natural detoxification and the buildup of irritating substances in the body, which can manifest on the skin.Carpal tunnel syndrome. Chronically elevated levels of inflammation may cause shortened tendons in the forearm and wrist, and the excessive muscle tension may result in compressed nerves.Celiac disease. Long periods of chronic immune system inflammation may bring about damages to the lining of the intestines. Fibrosis. Inflammatory cytokines may lead to an attack on traumatized tissues in the body. Kidney failure. Damage can be caused to the tubules and nephrons of the kidneys when circulation is restricted by inflammation.
