Serrapeptase: The Super Enzyme – InVite Health Podcast, Episode 475
InViteⓇ Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Amanda Williams, MPH
I cannot tell you how often people tell me they’re taking an NSAID, whether it’s Advil, ibuprofen or acetaminophen. It always blows my mind how many people take these drugs on a regular basis to target whatever pain, issue or swelling that they’re experiencing. A lot of this can be averted just through proper diet. Our diet certainly adds insult to injury. Today, I want to discuss something that’s been around for a really long time that is just fantastic when it comes to targeting inflammation, as well as discomfort. I’m going to talk about serrapeptase today.†
What is serrapeptase?
Serrapeptase has long been utilized for a long time for its true benefit, which is its ability to target inflammation in the body without the side effects that we know come with NSAIDs. Oftentimes, when people think about taking an anti-inflammatory medication to relieve pain, they don’t often think about the effects of long-term use of these NSAIDs.†
Serrapeptase is this proteolytic enzyme. What that means is that it chops up or digests different proteins. It is produced by bacteria and this is something that has been shown to have an enormous power to target inflammation.†
Another thing we know with serrapeptase is that it also can help to inhibit plaque buildup in the arteries. I’ve talked about nattokinase before, the fibrinolytic enzyme that comes from natto. Serrapeptase is in the same kind of realm in terms of how it’s actually working in the body. It’s this very unique protein derived from bacteria that helps to ease inflammation and target discomfort.†
How to get this nutrient
We know that there are many different ways in which serrapeptase can have many different functions to it. Understanding the role of serrapeptase when it comes to the resolution of inflammation, this is where the research is probably the strongest. It works in the same exact pathways that the NSAIDs do without the added side effects, plus you’re getting the extra benefits for wound healing, cardiovascular health and more. At the end of the day, when we’re thinking about extra nutrients to add in, we should look at serrapeptase.†
This enzyme can be found alongside nattokinase in our Nattokinase PlusTM formulation. This is a strong proteolytic enzyme formulation that goes far beyond supporting the health of our circulatory system and blood vessels. We now know that we are gaining that benefit when it comes to the targeted inflammation pathways, as well as wound healing.†
In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH discusses the enzyme serrapeptase and the role it plays in the body. She discusses research on this nutrient and explains why it is so important.†
