Each Serrapeptase capsule contains the Serratiopeptidase Enzyme preparation providing 250,000IU of activity. The delayed release capsule prevents the enzyme inside the capsule from being harmed by stomach acids. This powerful enzyme helps support and maintain healthy fluid levels in the body, healthy joints, muscles and helps support and maintain cardiovascular health. Serrapeptase has been used as a nutritional supplement in Europe and Asia for nearly three decades.
Serrapeptase, also known as Serratiopeptidase is an enzyme isolated from a bacteria called Serratia E15. This enzyme is produced in the intestine of the silkworm. Silkworms go through a transformational process within a cocoon that turns them into moths. It is this specific enzyme that is used by the silkworm to dissolve the cocoon and re-emerge as a moth. Serratiopeptidase has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is particularly useful for post-traumatic swelling, fibrocystic breast disease and bronchitis. It is able to digest dead tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaques. Clinical studies have shown it to be effective at reducing swelling and edema and metabolizing scar tissue in the body.
Take 1-3 capsules per day, more if required on an empty stomach. 30 minutes before food or 2 hours after.

We put this question to the manufacturer, and this was their reply: "If serrapeptase were drawn from actual silkworms, there wouldnt be enough silkworms in the world even to supply me! It is produced by harvesting the bacteria from a substrate of soy, but contains no soy residue. Hence: Vegan (even though bacteria are living organisms)".
