What is the first thing you reach for after an injury or overexertion? Is it over- the- counter pain killers or natural anti-inflammatories such as curcumin, boswellia and fish oil? Both can be effective choices although long term use of pain killers can have side-effects in certain individuals.
A slightly different approach comes from Europe and Asia, where they have a history of over 25 years of using systemic enzymes to deal with pain and inflammation in addition to many other ailments. Most of us have heard about digestive enzymes that are taken with meals to help us better digest food. We may not however be as familiar with how an enzyme can help with inflammation?
Serrétia is as product that contains serrapeptase, a systemic enzyme obtained from the bacteria naturally occurring in the gut of silkworms. Silk is one of the strongest natural proteins on earth and silkworm larvae excrete serrapeptase to dissolve their cocoon. The amazing thing about enzymes is that they are very specific and target only certain natural mediums. In the case of serrapeptase, it only dissolves the cocoon leaving the soft living tissue of the silkworm intact. Similarly, when taken on an empty stomach, serrapeptase enters the bloodstream and digests debris that contaminate the blood and aggravate the immune system. You can find Serrétia at Better Living Wellness Clinic and Health Store in Toronto (Etobicoke).
Here is how Serrétia can improve your health:
- Accelerate healing – serrapeptase supresses the production of pain-inducing peptides that normally bind to the site of injury and increase inflammation. Short-term, low level inflammation has a positive effect that allows for healing. However, chronic inflammation causes irritation, pain and slows down recovery. Chronic inflammation is also an underlying cause for many chronic health conditions.
- Healthy sinus activity – Serrapeptase is a powerful mucolytic (thins out mucous) due to its ability to dissolve mucins (thick mucous proteins). It can reduce sinus congestion and pressure.
- Joint pain – serrapeptase digests dead tissue that accumulates because of an injury and thus reduces swelling and pain while increasing the body’s ability to heal.
- Post surgical recovery – serrapeptase is a potent enzyme that can remove excess fibrin reducing scarring, supporting cardiovascular health and lessening instances of blood clots.
Arthur Andrew Serrétia is unique because it uses Acid Armor encapsulation instead of enteric coating. Acid Armor capsule technology is a much healthier choice and more effective than enteric coating in delivering the enzymes intact to the intestines. Serrétia is also one of the strongest serrapeptase supplements on the market in that it contains 250,000 SPU (Serratio Peptidase Units – an activity rating of the enzymes potency) per daily dose. Combined with the Acid Armor capsule, this serrapeptase supplement is well above any of the competition.
