How to Use Serrapeptase
Serrapeptase can be a part of your supplement program.

Serrapeptase is a nutritional supplement used to improve absorption within an individual’s intestinal tract. Serrapeptase is an enzyme found in the Japanese silkworm and used by the worms to help digest their cocoons. Additional benefits include the ability to reduce inflammation in body tissue. Serrapeptase has been used to treat sinusitis, bronchitis, fibrocystic breast conditions, and arterial blockages. If you have any of these problems, you should speak to your doctor to make sure that serrapeptase supplementation is appropriate for you. Keep in mind that none of the effects of serrapeptase supplements have been validated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Step 1

Purchase a serrapeptase supplement from a nutritional supply retailer. Brands that produce serrapeptase supplements include Doctor’s Best, RaNisa, and Smart Nutrition.

Step 2

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions printed on the label of the supplement. Most companies recommend a daily intake of 40,000 to 80,000 units of serrapeptase. You will likely take one to three serrapeptase capsules daily. According to Natural News, a larger dose is typically taken first, and when effects are noticed, you decrease the number of capsules used. The supplement is usually taken in the evening hours before you go to bed.

Step 3

Drink a full glass of water with your dose of serrapeptase. Drink water throughout the day while taking the supplement, a minimum of eight glasses each day.

Step 4

Consume your doses of serrapeptase on an empty stomach. It is not recommended that you take the supplement with meals.
