One of the true 20th century giants in the field of complementary and alternative medicine was the late Dr. Hans Nieper of Hanover, Germany. Dr. Nieper, recognized worldwide for his use of natural nutraceuticals, applied comprehensive dietary programs to treat a wide variety of conditions.
One of Dr. Nieper's favorite supplements that he used in his practice was the proteolytic (protein digesting) enzyme serrapeptidase. Originally developed in Japan, serrapeptidase was derived from a natural bacteria found in the gut of the Japanese silkworm. Dr. Nieper found serrapeptidase to be an extremely powerful and an effective natural adjunct to support healthy joint, immune, cardiovascular and respiratory health. Unfortunately, after Dr. Nieper's untimely passing, serrapeptidase fell out of popular favor in Europe. Recently, it has experienced a new resurgence in use among complementary medicine physicians throughout Europe and the Far East.
Recognizing the potential for a "serrapeptidase-type" enzyme in the U.S. dietary supplement market, our good friends at the National Enzyme Company developed a protein-digesting system that has the same enzyme activity as serrapeptidase— derived NOT from the Japanese silkworm but from the 100% natural, edible, non-genetically engineered fungi Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus melleus. The powerful natural enzyme activity found in our new Swanson Ultra® Serrazimes® 20,000 Unit capsules can truly be of great benefit for everyone seeking a boost in their nutritional support programs for cardiovascular, respiratory, immune and joint health.
Health Benefits of Serrazimes
- Supports joint and soft tissue health by promoting healthy immune response at the cellular level
- Supports cardiovascular, circulatory and lymphatic health by helping to break down fibrin—a protein involved in the clotting process
- Clinical research shows that Serrazimes reduces the viscosity of sputum (mucus), making it the number one choice for respiratory health and nasal congestion
- Serrazimes is a safe and effective alternative to serrapeptidase
