Very useful & powerful product
Posted by Reviewer3234699 on Mar 14, 2010
I am an acupuncturist & I am always seeking products that really work and make a difference. This product seems to be one of those products. Actually, silkworm droppings (can sha) have been used in chinese medicine for phlegm and other accumulations obstructing the channels and other conditions linked to pain. With this in mind, serrapeptase (made from silkworm digestive enzymes) is a very valuable medicinal substance to dissolve accumulations and resolving the root of many pain/dysfunction syndromes. I haven't tried other brands, so I can't compare, but I personally felt results with this product as did the few patients that I tried it with.

i have been taking serrapeptase for 6 months. i have only had to take pain killers twice in the past 6 months. i have arthritus, a hip replacement and both shoulders have been operated for rotator cuff injuries. i take two in the morning and two at night. i started out taking 8 a day for two months. the most amazing discovery was the fact i had little or no dental plaque. i hadnt had my teeth cleaned in 13 months and i dread that procedure because i have so much plaque. the only plaque i had was alittle bit on my bottom teeth. tnis is one of the most amazing herbs. i am 78 years old and feel wonderful.

This is a supplement which does similar work to aspirins and NSAIDs with fewer side effects. I have been using this particular brand for about 1 1/2 years and I would recommend it as quite good within the variety of brands and strengths available. I don't want to go too deeply and be misconstrued as belonging to the company's advertising section, so I'll stop with that. Its good. Give it a try. Don't expect overnight actions; give it a couple weeks.

Within two weeks of using Serrapeptase I noticed the solar keratosis ( sun damaged skin ) on my scalp improving. Now after six weeks it is still improving and I believe it is slowly dissolving scar tissue on my nose from a previous skin cancer site. To say the least I am delighted and I have now put my 17 year old son on Serrapeptase to see if we can improve his acne and some scarring from the same.

Great product for taking care of pain and scar tissue. Works better if you take bromelain, magnesium, carnitine and selenium with it.
enteric capsules very poorly done
Posted by Reviewer1757309 on Sep 19, 2008
The enteric capsules used for Serrapeptase are too thick and do not entirely break down in the transit. If the intention of this company is to only bypass the stomach acids, they overshot their goal and have succeeded in bypassing the entire gastrointestinal conduit! While the capsule has opened and the contents are apparently assimilated for the most part, there should be a warning on the label for people who may be achlorhydric that the enteric coatings will not allow them to absorb this product! My spouse has good digestion, and only flakes of the capsule are visible in his feces. I, on the other hand have an ileostomy and these capsules caused a temporary blockage in my intestines. The capsules emerged totally intact. Putting the capsules in an acidic solution, like vinegar, for one hour did not succeed in dissolving the enteric veggie cap. Shame on this company for using this type of capsule and not testing it! My spouse will finish out our order, but I will be unable to use this product. I would encourage iHerb to ask this company to change their capsuling materials. Sincerely, Dr.Karen D.C.

I've experimented with arthritic and inflammation type of herbs and formulas for many years. I found this particular intervention, with serrapeptase, unlike any other. Immediately the first night I noticed that the circulation in the area where one had the pain increase. By the morning, the swelling was reduced as though no swelling was ever present! What I learned was, do take high dosage at the beginning. With this particular item, one capsule (120,000 SPUs) will do. Then after depending on whether the symptoms subside, just take maintenance dosage (40,000 SPUs). Listen to your body. Researcher Robert Redfern can also be an authority to seek out for further information.

I am still experimenting with this. One thing is that I had a cyst under my arm that was the size of a marble, which has now almost gone away. Will review as I learn more.

The BEST Natural Pain Killer!

I use this with Nattokinase to improve circulation, and it helps tremendously with my overall little aches and pains. Great price, and as always great service from iHerb.
