Arthur Andrew Medical - Serracel USP Grade Serrapeptase 500 mg. - 120 Capsules
Serracel is made up of 99.99% pure Serratiopeptidase, more commonly known as Serrapeptase. Originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, the proteolytic enzyme Serrapeptase is harnessed by Arthur Andrew Medical through the isolation of the microorganism, Serratia E-15. Serrapeptase’s inherent ability to digest dead tissue enables the enzyme to successfully aid in degenerating scar tissue, cysts, blood clots, arterial plaque and allows for more fluid and natural blood flow throughout the body.
Arthur Andrew Medical Serracel USP Grade Serrapeptase Supports:
- Sport injuries
- Promote healthy sinus activity
- Promote free joint mobility
- Muscle tears and pulls
- Surgical recovery
- Normal fluid retention such as swelling
Serracel’s Use for Sport Injuries
NSAID’s may do an effective job of masking the pain and inflammation of an injury, however merely masking the aforementioned symptoms, only prolongs recovery. The use of systemic enzymes such as Serracel, provide a better choice and are more conducive to increasing the speed of recovery. Serracel works by digesting any dead tissue that may accumulate as a result of an injury, which then allows normal fluid retention to take place, thereby reducing swelling and pain while enhancing one’s ability to heal.
Studies on Sport Injuries
In Europe the overall use of systemic enzymes has been far more widespread than in the United States. In Germany in particular, systemic enzymes have been actively used for decades and are even used by the German National Hockey team in order to treat and prevent injuries.
German Dr. M. W. Kleine and his team at the Sports Medicine Investigation Center in Grumwald, Germany, decided to look at 100 athletes in order to determine the ‘effectiveness of proteolytic enzymes’. Dr. Kleine took each subject and removed two cubic cm of blood from their anticubital vein. By reinserting the blood under the skin on each subject’s right forearm, Dr. Kleine and his team were able to reproduce a hematoma (blood clot). 50 of the subjects were then given placebo pills, while the other 50 subjects were given proteolytic enzymes; each subject taking one pill three times a day. The results speak for themselves: 35 or 70% of the 50 subjects that had been treated with enzymes reported considerably less pain, less inflammation, a shorter lasting amount of pain on pressure and had the hematoma disappear in a shorter amount of time than their placebo counterparts.
Preventative Uses For Serracel
Serracel can also be successfully used in order to prevent injuries or simply mollify the trauma of an injury or surgery. In another German study researchers set out to discover how well serrapeptase could assuage the pain and swelling of subjects who have undergone surgery.
The German study involved sixty-six subjects that had undergone surgery in order to treat the rupture of the knee ligament, which is often suffered by athletes and causes substantial pain and inflammation. The subjects were split into two groups; one of which took serrapeptase, while the other was given a placebo. Three days following the surgery, the subjects that were given serrapeptase were found to have a 50% reduction of swelling and experienced less pain compared to their placebo counterparts.
What is Serracel?
Serracel is comprised of 99.99% pure Serratiopeptidase, more commonly known as Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, and is produced by Arthur Andrew Medical through the isolation of the microorganism Serratia E-15. In Japan, Serrapeptase is commonly prescribed as a drug, but here in the US we can experience serrapeptase and all of its wonderful benefits without a prescription.
How Does Serracel Work?
Taken on an empty stomach, Serrapeptase, a fibrinolytic (fibrin digesting) enzyme, enters the bloodstream via the small intestine. Serrapeptase breaks down fibrin within the body; its inherent ability to digest dead tissue enables the enzyme to speed recovery times from injury and improve circulation.
Why Should I Take Serracel?
Serrapeptase has a variety of benefits, and has been found to successfully aid in the breakdown of scar tissue, cysts, blood clots, and plaque. Serracel may help to improve recovery after sports injuries or surgery, muscle tears and pulls, sinus activity, joint mobility and fluid retention. Like other proteolytic enzymes, Serrapeptase serves as a healthy alternative to conventional medicines, which may have detrimental effects on various organs, including the liver and kidneys.
Can I Take Too Much Serrapeptase?
Although Serracel contains highly potent Serrapeptase, it can safely be incorporated into your supplement regimen. There have been no indications that one can over-dose from the use of systemic enzymes such as Serrapeptase. However, it is important to follow dosaging instructions unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider.
Is Serracel Enteric Coated?
Some enzymes, typically those which are animal derived, are protected with a pH resistant layer called an “enteric coating”. Enzymes that are derived from vegetarian or microbial sources such as Serrapeptase have a wide pH resistance. Enteric coatings only become important in products containing animal-based enzymes that are naturally released below the stomach, giving them a small pH range. Therefore, an enteric coating would be an unnecessary addition to a product such as Serracel. Furthermore, Serracel is to be taken on an empty stomach, which allows the capsule to enter and leave the stomach in a matter of 30 minutes or less. The cellulose capsules on average take 30 minutes to dissolve in low pH. In addition, the capsules themselves would not cause the stomach to start producing acid, since this only occurs when there is a stretching of the stomach lining.
About Arthur Andrew Medical
Arthur Andrew Medical was originally established in 1999 under the name Arizona Pharma Group. It was founded by current CEO Justin Andrew Marsh. Mr. Marsh, a former engineer and contractor for companies such as Motorola, Intel and Medtronic, developed the company as a majority investor. The company specialized in the importation of enzymes and other raw materials. In 2003 Arthur Andrew Medical was formed after acquiring Thomas Arthur Aldrich, vice president and partner. Mr. Aldrich came from WNI Inc, the developers of Vitalzym. With the collaboration of well-known enzymologists and best-in-class materials, the partners began the creation of finished products under their own brand-name. In 2003, Neprinol, the world’s most potent systemic enzyme was born. Arthur Andrew's mission is to be the leader in the development of systemic enzyme products in the supplement industry. While other companies develop products based on market trends and fads, Arthur Andrew Medical only adopts products with ingredients that have extensive clinical research for safety and efficacy.
