SerraPain is not another drug; it's not a hormone. It wasn't made in a test tube, or even developed in a lab. The main ingredient in SerraPain, serratiopeptidase, comes from a lowly insect, the silkworm, and is a natural, anti-inflammatory, proteolytic enzyme that nature developed to help the silkworm digest its cocoon. It's been studied intensively in clinical studies for more than 25 years in Europe and Japan, and is routinely recommended by doctors to treat everything from arthritis pain and joint swelling to post-operative edema and sports injuries. It's powerful, effective, and best of all it's free of side-effects! Studies show SerraPain proteolytic action is effective for minor: * Pain * Joints * Back Pain * Minor Shoulder & Knee Arthritis * Minor Injuries * Inflammation * Edema * Swelling
How Does SerraPain Work? As a proteolytic enzyme, SerraPain is naturally designed to help break down proteins in the body. In much the same way it breaks down the silkworm's cocoon, SerraPain's enzymatic action dissolves the protein debris, from toxins and inflammation resulting from injury or illness. If left unchecked, this irritating protein debris can cause much of the internal inflammation in our bodies, the kind that can turn into chronic conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, stiff joints, swelling and aching muscles. But because the proteolytic action of SerraPain ONLY affects non-living tissues (protein debris), you don't have to worry about healthy tissues being adversely affected. Additionally, SerraPain naturally blocks the release of a pain-creating substance called bradykin, which is normally released by injured tissues and leads to inflammation and swelling. However, unlike NSAIDs or Cox-2 inhibitors, SerraPain is a natural enzyme with NO effect on the Cox enzymes, so there's no chance of stomach or kidney reactions, or increased risk of heart attack and stroke! Plus, SerraPain's blood-cleansing power promotes circulation and oxygenation of the inflamed area to sweep away the pro-inflammatory compounds that contribute to pain and swelling. The result is dramatically faster healing, reduced inflammation, and improved tissue repair.
Serratiopeptidase has been shown to help relieve pain, inflammation and edema in four specific ways:
1. It breaks down insoluble fibrin, a protein by-product of blood coagulation involved in inflammation.
2. It reduces pain by blocking the release of pain-inducing molecules called bradykin (6-8).
3. It breaks down protein debris from toxins and inflammation, digesting non-living tissue such as mucus, arterial plaque, cysts and scar tissue.
4. It reduces the thickness of fluids produced during inflammation, reducing swelling and promoting tissue repair.
Each SerraPain capsule contains the recommended 500 mg of Serratiopeptidase and is assayed to 120,000 units (compared to other brands at 30-40,000) to ensure that you get the highest quality product at the best possible price! In one study of 44 athletes, the use of proteolytic enzymes (like SerraPain) reduced the healing time of joint injuries by an average of 50%! In scientific studies of over 300 people, supplementation with proteolytic enzymes was compared to the standard NSAID diclofenac for the treatment of shoulder arthritis, back pain and knee arthritis. The results showed that proteolytic enzymes like SerraPain were just as effective for both pain and inflammation!
