Silk Worm Enzymes For Carotid Artery Blockage
Dr. H A Nieper - Germany
Serrapeptase is an enzyme produced by serratia bacteria living on silkworms. With this enzyme the worms melt a hole out of the cocoon. Unlike other enzymes in the field of biology, Serrapeptase dissolves ‘dead’ tissue like or e.g. not both silk and apparently also fibrinoid layers in the arteries which chemically could be compared to silk.
A special problem in today’s civilized society is occluding processes in the carotid arteries of the neck. Very often we see patients where surgeons were reluctant to operate or to apply drill or laser technology such occluded carotids. The reason for this is the potential risk that off coming debris will be pushed into the smaller cerebral vessels.
We have, therefore started to apply Serrapeptase in cases of severe narrowings of the carotid arteries. Mostly in patients showing severe symptoms due to the narrowing, including amaurosis fugax (intermittent blindness). The therapeutic results are excellent, certainly lifesaving. It is, however, mandatory that the therapy be conducted for a very long time. Even after month 18, after the onset of the therapy, the patients are improving.
I have also found Serrapeptase to be an extraordinary substance for safety removing fibrous blockages from coronary arteries, particularly the carotid arteries found in the neck, which supply blood brain. Serrapeptase is a natural enzyme produced by serratia bacteria living in silkworms. Once the silkworm has completed its transformation into a moth, it uses this substance to “melt” a hole in its cocoon, so that it can escape.
The astonishing fact is that, unlike other biological enzymes, Serrapeptase affects only non-living tissue, like the silk cocoon. This is the reason the butterfly is not harmed. For our health purposes, Serrapeptase dissolves only dead tissues such as the old fibrous layers that clog the lining of our arteries and dangerously restrict the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. Because of this, Serrapeptase is extremely useful in keeping arterial deposits from building up again after angioplasty (a balloon technique used to clear an artery blockage) or coronary bypass surgery has been performed.
Very often, surgeons are reluctant or unable to open partially closed carotid arteries using laser surgery. They fear that resulting debris could be pushed into smaller connecting arteries and result in a stroke and possibly death. In cases of severe arterial narrowing, I have used Serrapeptase with excellent, even life-saving results. Many of my patients have shown significant improved blood flow through their previously constricted arteries, as confirmed by ultrasound examination. Unfortunately, orthodox cardiologists do not employ this important method in their practices.
Imagine if you knew of someone over 60 who was healed within 3 weeks from advanced emphysema and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) with an inexpensive natural medicine. And what if you found out this natural enzyme was good for a variety of different health problems, even those nagging “minor” ailments of aging? This inexpensive miracle medication is called Serrapeptase. The story of the man in his 60's who recovered in 3 weeks was related during a radio interview about Serrapeptase, by Dennis Gore, a Manchester, England pharmacist who specializes in natural medicines.
A Dramatic Anecdote
According to Dennis, in 2002, this ill man was brought into the pharmacy in a wheelchair by his wife. He had to breath bottled oxygen, was on antibiotics, and had to use steroid sprays to reduce inflammation constantly. Because of all this, he was often getting other bad infections and ill side effects. The man had heard Dennis on BBC radio discussing studies done in parts of Europe on Serrapeptase's ability toremove airway and blood vessel obstructions that had accumulated over time.
So this severely ill individual asked the pharmacist for some Serrapeptase, which Dennis had on hand. The instructions Dennis gave him were to take two 20,000 IU tablets, about 5 grams, on an empty stomach four times a day, and then phase down to less as he got better.
Three weeks later, a 6 foot middle aged man walked into the pharmacy and asked Dennis Gore if he remembered him. Dennis couldn't. So the man told him he was the one that had COPD, emphysema, and was wheelchair bound just three weeks earlier. He was no longer on antibiotics, sprays, nor was he using oxygen cylinders. Two years later he was still fine and one of the pharmacist's steady customers. And he hadn't even quit smoking!
What Is Serrapeptase?
Serrapeptase is an enzyme that was originally found in silkworms. The silkworm produces this enzyme to digest the tough Mulberry leaves that live on, and more importantly that also use, it to rapidly bore through it's tough cocoon and fly away before any predator can catch it. Scientists isolated this enzyme and began creating cultures by adding a protein. From there they began successful clinical experiments and trials. And it went from that phase to broad usage. It is considered a standard medicine in Germany.
Enzymes are catalysts that enable or speed up biochemical reactions. Just like we were told in high school chemistry, the catalyst, in this case an enzyme, does not get consumed by the chemical reaction. It starts it. There are around 4000 biochemical reactions that require enzymes as catalysts. So the human body needs enzymes not only to digest foods, as many know, but also needs enzymes for cellular activity.
The particular enzyme activity of Serrapeptase is unique. Dennis Gore had studied the reports of a German doctor, Dr. Hans Napier, who had positive results with clearing blocked arteries and preventing the need for by-pass operations. In other words, it is effective and safe as an arterial chelation agent. Dr. Napier treated a woman with Serrapeptase who was scheduled to have her hand amputated. She recovered without the amputation.
Unlike many medications used to remove arterial wall plaque or inflamed lipids (fats) in the blood stream, Serrapeptase does not block the biosynthesis of cholesterol. Cholesterol in its pure form is an antioxidant necessary for all organs in the body to function properly. If it's biosynthesis is hampered,long term health issues will occur.
In addition, it is a very powerful natural anti-inflammatory agent. So any area of inflammation in the body is mollified without resorting to steroid or non steroid drug use, which almost always has side effects, and with a high price tag!
Serrapeptase Historical and Current Usage
Serrapeptase has a 25 year history of use in parts of Europe and Asia. Serrapeptase digests all non living tissue, cysts, blood clots, inflammation, and arterial blockages. It has been found to be more effective than the common medical use of EDTA Chelation for removing arterial plaque. Again, with no side effects.
It has been used successfully for the treatment of cardiovascular problems, arthritis, fibrocystic breast disease, lung problems, sinusitis problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and even sports injuries. It is recommended as an anti-aging agent simply because much of aging has to do with the accumulation of scar tissue, inflammation, and dis-regulation.
Inflammation is part of a necessary process to protect healthy cells from harmful invaders of all types. Dis-regulation occurs when the inflammation process loses discrimination and no longer differentiates between harmful and benign substances. Then there is unnecessary inflammation leading to long term autoimmune problems.
There are many reports of aches and pains vanishing from people's lives after using Serrapeptase. This natural enzyme does not suppress the immune system in any way. There are no known side effects, not even indigestion. There are many sources available in capsule and tablet form. It's recommended that heavy dosages be taken early until a positive change occurs, then taper off to a lighter dosage.
So why is Serrapeptase not a household term even after 25 years of use in parts of Europe and Asia? It's effective, it's safe, it's inexpensive, and does not require a prescription. Since there are no side effects and it does not hamper the immune system, there would be no more drugs to sell with more doctor visits. Do you really think big pharma would be pushing something like that?

Serrapeptase: A Natural Anti-Inflammatory
Serrapeptase, also known as Serratia Peptidase, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic enterobacteria Serratia E15. When consumed in unprotected tablets or capsules, the enzyme is destroyed by acid in the stomach. However, our special enteric-coated Caplets enable the enzyme to pass through the stomach unchanged, and be absorbed in the intestine. Serrapeptase is found in negligible amounts in the urine, suggesting that it is transported directly from the intestine into the bloodstream.
Clinical studies show that Serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues, and that its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes.
Besides reducing inflammation, one of Serrapeptase's most profound benefits is reduction of pain, due to its ability to block the release of pain-inducing amines from inflamed tissues. Physicians throughout Asia and Europe have recognized the anti-inflammatory and pain-blocking benefits of this naturally occurring substance and are using it in treatment as an alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and other NSAIDs.
In Germany and other European countries, Serrapeptase is a common treatment for inflammatory and traumatic swellings, and much of the research that exists on this substance is of European origin. One double-blind study was conducted by German researchers to determine the effect of Serrapeptase on post-operative swelling and pain. This study involved sixty-six patients who were treated surgically for fresh rupture of the lateral collateral ligament of the knee. On the third post-operative day, the group receiving Serrapeptase exhibited a 50 percent reduction of swelling, compared to the controls. The patients receiving Serrapeptase also became more rapidly pain-free than the controls, and by the tenth day, the pain had disappeared completely.
Serrapeptase is thought to work in three ways:
It may reduce inflammation by thinning the fluids formed from injury, and facilitating the fluid's drainage. This in turn, also speeds tissue repair.
It may help alleviate pain by inhibiting the release of pain-inducing amines called bradykinin.
It may enhance cardiovascular health by breaking down the protein by-products of blood coagulation called fibrin. Conveniently, Serrapeptase is able to dissolve the fibrin and other dead or damaged tissue without harming living tissue. This could enable the dissolution of atherosclerotic plaques without causing any harm to the inside of the arteries.
Serrapeptase is being used as a highly effective support to anti-biotics in many countries. It treats inflammatory disorders by not only fighting inflammation, but also by relieving pain and swelling, improving recovery time and stimulating the immune system. Serrapeptase has a "scavenging" effect. It helps remove the heavy metals through which the body releases toxins and hence modulates the immune system, addresses hormonal imbalances and speeds wound and tissue repair time.
Serrapeptase Rx is provided in enteric coated vegetable based microcrystalline cellulose capsules or caplets. Derived from a controlled fermentation of the bacterial strain, Serratia sp. T-1 secretes this enzyme in medium. Successive purification steps, for example micro-filtration, ammonium sulphyhate, fractionation, DEAE-Cellulase column chromatography, gel filtration followed by repeat aseptic filtration and freeze drying yields this product in a highly purified form, enabling it to be used for medicinal purpose. The enteric-coated microcrystalline capsules protect the enzyme from inactivation in the acidic medium of the stomach. Serapeptase is a stronger saseinolytic (fibrinolytic) agent than any other known alkaline or neutral protease such as bromelain or pronase.
Note: Some manufacturers use 'enteric coated' enzyme in a non-enteric coated capsule. This is not as effective as using an enteric coated capsule or caplet as some of the enzyme will be denatured by stomach acid. Enerex's enteric coated capsules and caplets ensure that the entire enzyme is delivered to the small intestine for maximum absorption.
Packaging: Packed in recyclable amber PETE (Bisphenol A free) containers to provide the best protection for the product against oxidation.
Guaranteed Purity: This product contains no animal substance, artificial preservatives, colours or flavours, added starch, sugar, lactose, milk, salt, yeast, wheat or gluten.
Enteric Coating: Vegetable cellulose complex.

Insect-Derived Enzyme Fights Inflammation
Our bodies have a love-hate relationship with inflammation. On the one hand, inflammation is a natural response, necessary to protect the body from invading organisms. On the other hand, inflammation can limit joint function, and destroy bone, cartilage and other articular structures.
An elusive goal of scientists and physicians has been to find a side-effect-free substance to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with fibrocystic breast disease, rheumatoid arthritis, idiopathic edema, carpal tunnel syndrome and post-operative swelling. It appears that the search may be nearing an end, thanks to an enzyme Serrapeptase™ produced by the larval form of the silk moth.
Serrapeptase™ is an enzyme that is produced in the intestines of silk worms to break down cocoon walls. This enzyme is proving to be a superior alternative to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) traditionally used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Its uses have also been extended to the treatment of chronic sinusitis and postoperative inflammation.
