Even at your best, life can be challenging – working overtime to win that new deal at work or carrying your injured child home from the playground. But when you are recovering from an illness or surgery, suffering from inflammatory joint conditions, or experiencing symptoms of pain, swelling, and mucous buildup in your respiratory tract, the simplest of challenges can feel unmanageable. Although a natural part of recovery, your body’s inflammatory response can have a serious effect on your quality of life – impacting comfort, overall health, and enjoyment of daily activities.
Natural Factors Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme that has been shown to help relieve pain and inflammation. It is prepared through a highly controlled fermentation process using cultures of the non-pathogenic bacterium Serratia marcescens E-15. By enclosing it within a delayed-release capsule, it remains intact while passing through the acidic stomach environment and is then absorbed through the small intestine.
Serrapeptase has been called the “miracle enzyme” for its wide range of health-promoting benefits. It helps break down proteins into simpler compounds, working to remove dead or damaged tissues that are by-products of healing, without altering living tissue. It relieves cheek swelling and pain after dental surgery and encourages fluids to drain by assisting with their absorption through circulating blood and the lymphatic system.
By thinning excess mucous caused by ear, nose, and throat infections, it also helps alleviate secretions and congestion that can make it difficult to sense smell.
In other words, Serrapeptase brings comfort and relief to help you stay on track. It alleviates the discomfort of pain and inflammation without the setbacks of serious side effects. The convenient one per day formulas come in delayed-release, non-GMO, vegetarian capsules with a choice of 60,000 SU (active serratiopeptidase units) or double-strength 120,000 SU potencies.
