Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic bacteria Serratia species. Serrapeptase has been used as a nutritional supplement in Europe and Asia for nearly three decades.
Serrapeptase may help to support and maintain muscle and joint health and promote normal inflammatory processes within the body. Serrapeptase may also help sustain and support cardiovascular health and proper arterial health.
Serrapeptase, also known as Serratia Peptidase, is a proteolytic (breaking down) enzyme. Each vegetarian capsule of Doctors Best Serrapeptase contains enteric-coated, acid stable granules of pure Serrapeptase designed for optimal absorption in the intestinal tract. When consumed in unprotected tablets or capsules, the enzyme is destroyed by acid in the stomach. Enterically-coated tablets enable the enzyme to pass through the stomach unchanged, and be absorbed in the intestine.
