12 Questions About Serrapeptase You Were Too Afraid To Ask

12 Questions About Serrapeptase You Were Too Afraid To Ask

Serrapeptase is recognised as a safe, natural solution that can provide anti-inflammatory relief within the body for a wide range of health conditions.

Robert Redfern coined the term ‘Miracle Enzyme’ for Serrapeptase when he discovered how powerful it could be for healing people like Mike Tawse who were suffering with painful cerebral palsy symptoms for many years.

By providing natural pain relief for many conditions, Serrapeptase safely digests scars (non-living tissue), blood clots, cysts, fibrin and arterial plaque, and inflammation in all its forms. The inflammation is removed via normal elimination metabolic channels. Once the inflammation is removed, the body can naturally begin healing itself.

However, over the years, many myths have been created that only serve to confuse people about Serrapeptase and its potential healing abilities. Here are just twelve common questions we often get asked…

 1) Why do doctors not prescribe Serrapeptase?

Some do. Yet the vast majority of doctors in the West do not because they follow the Pharmaceutical model. So they have no money to make from it. In Germany and Japan, doctors routinely prescribe the Serrapeptase enzyme for its effectiveness in the natural healing process.


2) Is Serrapeptase safe to take while pregnant?

Yes, Serrapeptase is safe to take before, during and after pregnancy. At each stage, Serrapeptase can help you to find relief for inflammation and any painful health conditions you may be experiencing.

Robert’s daughter-in-law has safely used Serrapeptase successfully throughout both of her pregnancies and delivered two healthy children as a result.


 3) Will Serrapeptase get me pregnant?

Serrapeptase can support healthy fertility, by clearing blocked fallopian tubes. The Serrapeptase enzyme can help to make fertility conditions more favourable should you be trying for a baby.


4) Who should not take Serrapeptase?

The ‘Miracle Enzyme’ known as Serrapeptase is actually suitable for people of all ages to take. Young and old; men, women, pregnant, or people of all health conditions and disabilities can benefit from taking Serrapeptase.


5) Can Serrapeptase support my mental health?

Serrapeptase can clear inflammation in the body. Inflammation has been linked with depression and other health conditions. There are however, other more potent supplements to consider taking to support mental and emotional health.

Some of these include Lithium Orotate (found in our Lithium Balance product), Sam-e otherwise known as S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe) seems to reduce symptoms of major depression. While Ashwagandha is an Ancient Indian herb that can reduce stress, anxiety and provide natural relief for depression.


6) I’m having heavier periods since taking Serrapeptase. Is this normal?

Serrapeptase helps with clearing inflammation in the body. As a potential side effect, it can result in heavy periods. If you suffer with blocked fallopian tubes, uterine problems, blocked fallopian tubes or fibrosis then the Serrapeptase is clearing the inflammation and dead scar tissue in the process.

This may mean experiencing slightly heavier periods than normal during this time. It is nothing to worry about and is a part of the elimination process. Once the body is clear of inflammation, normal periods should resume.


 7) Can I take Serrapeptase if I have surgical mesh in my body?

A surgical mesh is a temporary or permanent measure to provide support for organs and other tissues during surgery. Some people feel scared when they read about how Serrapeptase can dissolve scar tissue and inflammation in the body. So they decide not to take it, out of fear that it will dissolve the mesh too.

This isn’t possible as Serrapeptase won’t affect non-bodily materials such as mesh, but if there is scar tissue holding the mesh in place then it’s not possible to say for certain if this will be affected or not. Therefore, it’s advisable to be cautious in this type of situation.

Generally, Serrapeptase is unique in that it can tell the difference between dead scar tissue that is unrequired and scar tissue that has formed to heal a wound and become an important part of the healing process.

Serrapeptase only goes after EXCESS scar tissue. It doesn’t keep eating away at fibrous tissue that is NEEDED by the body to cover up a wound because that would actually reopen the wound. Endogenous means that it is NEEDED fibrous tissue. Exogenous means that the fibrous tissue is NOT needed and doesn’t belong in your body. Somehow, the enzymes can tell the difference and they only go after the exogenous (not needed) fibrous tissue.

Plus we have never had any reports of surgical implants being disturbed in this way. But this is something to be aware of. And as such we would advise to go for normal doses of the enzyme and not to go up to the mega doses that some people may take.


8) Am I OK to take Serrapeptase if I’m on medications?

Yes, it’s fine to take Serrapeptase if you are on medications and there are no contraindications or adverse side effects. It’s advisable to take Serrapeptase at least an hour away, as with all nutritional supplements and medications.


9) What is the maximum amount of Serrapeptase I can take each day?

There’s no given limit as to the amount of Serrapeptase you can take on a daily basis. However, you may want to build up slowly with the Serra Enzyme. If you have a severe health condition, then taking more is recommended. Once you experience relief, then it’s ideal to reduce to a maintenance dose for best health and wellness long-term.


10) Can Serrapeptase help me to lose weight?

Serrapeptase can’t help you to directly lose weight, but it may support the weight loss process as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.


11) Will Serrapeptase heal my health condition?

Stating that Serrapeptase can heal a health condition is a big claim. Yes, the enzyme can relieve inflammation which is a MAJOR cause of illness and chronic disease in the body. So Serrapeptase can provide support for the body’s natural healing process. Yet the body naturally begins healing itself once the inflammation is removed.

Serrapeptase has thousands of testimonies from people who are improving their lung health, joint health, cardiovascular health and more…all from taking this simple enzyme.


12) Is Serrapeptase vegan? I’ve heard it was derived from the silkworm intestine?

Yes, originally the Serrapeptase enzyme was derived from the silkworm intestine. However, it is now manufactured in a laboratory using natural state ingredients. It is formed on a fungal base and uses natural nutrient extracts to encourage the processing and growth of the enzyme. No animals involved.

These are some of the most common questions about Serrapeptase that people have on a regular basis. Below is a selection of Serrapeptase products that we recommend as examples.

    Hello Robert!
    I purchased several bottles of serrapeptase a few months ago and began taking it as directed for my coronary artery disease. One evening after taking it for two weeks, I suffered a TIA episode ( mini stroke ) which lasted a couple of hours.
    I remembered reading that aspirin can clear the symptoms of a stroke if taken immediately after it occurs. So I took it right away. The symptoms cleared up and never returned. Now I am reluctant to take sarrapeptase thinking it may have caused this to occur. Is it possible sarrapeptase could have caused this?

      I had a fall a couple of years ago and permanently damaged 2 vertebrae for which there was no treatment. I was delighted to find RR’s site and took 2 x2500 ius per day and still do to great effect. I was diagnosed in January this year with Parkinsons disease for which I take sinemet x 4 per day. The pain in my back is excruciating even with the serrapeptase and I can only think the sinemet must in some way affect the uptake of this enzyme. My specialists think that the serrapeptase is a waste of time and I think they don’t know jack! I am now trying to take the sinemet and serrapeptase at a great distance from one another. Anybody got any ideas?

        Hi Sandra, serrapeptase does not interact with any other nutrients or medications, so there isn’t any reason for it to hinder the uptake of the sinemet or visa versa. Take at least an hour apart, if not longer, during the day.

      Hi Marc,
      No, Serrapeptase although does not thin the blood like aspirin, it will however helped to stop it being worse.
      I recommend adding Nattokinase when you take the serrapeptase as this will clear any clots. Also following a Ketogenic food plan and avoiding starchy carbs, sugar and factory processed foods will stop the inflammation and sticky blood that results for such foods.
      A TIA is a warning that your lifestyle is not healthy and is to be heeded.

    Why is there never a dosage given for Serrapeptase. It s up to us to quesss what is appropriate. Also how much is a maintenance dosage and how often?
    Serrapeptase does not do anything for neurological issues like I have from spinal surgery. Not that I expected it to do.
