Serrapeptase can help to decrease inflammation and mucus in the body. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme, which means that it chops up or digests protein. Ever since this enzyme was discovered in the 1970s, it has turned the natural health industry on its head. Never before had we seen a single ingredient that had the power to relieve inflammation associated with some of the most painful chronic diseases. Never before had a single enzyme demonstrated its ability to break down and dissolve non-living tissue in the body to restore balance and relieve swelling, aches, pains, headaches, tenderness, heart issues and much more – all with scientific backing.
