What is Serrapeptase?

Serrapeptase, also called Serrapeptidase or Serratio Peptidase, is a natural enzyme that breaks down or “digests” dead tissue or particles made of protein. Enerex Serrapeptase is proven to reduce pain, mucous build-up, and symptoms of inflammation, including those from post-operative swelling.  

enerex Serrapeptase pain and inflammation reductionSerrapeptase, which is classified as a “proteolytic enzyme, is thought to work in four ways: 

  1. It relieves chronic pain by blocking the release of the body’s pain-inducing amines (natural chemicals) in inflamed tissue.
  2. It reduces inflammation by thinning the fluids formed from inflammatory conditions, and helps the fluid to drain. This also speeds up tissue repair.
  3. As a proteolytic enzyme, it breaks down dead or damaged tissue (without harming living tissue) dissolving these protein by-products.
  4. It acts as a “mucolytic enzyme” that helps break down mucous, which is protein based.


Whether symptoms stem from injury, surgery, or disease such as arthritis or sinusitis, Enerex Serrapeptase action disrupts pain pathways and restores your body’s persistent inflammatory response to reduce swelling and improve circulation. This productive and efficient “miracle” enzyme can easily bring comfort and relief for better health.

Who should take Serrapeptase?

If you have chronic inflammation or pain, Serrapeptase acts as an anti-inflammatory. It does not have the side effects associated with NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). If you have swelling, it can reduce fluid retention (edema), and post-operative swelling, and can help if you have sinus issues like sinusitis or throat ailments.
