Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme (breaks down protein) isolated from the non-pathogenic serratia species found in the digestive tract of the Japanese silkworm. The enzyme is used by the worms to digest their cocoons.
Serrapeptase has been used as a nutritional supplement in Europe and Asia for nearly three decades. Serrapeptase supports healthy sinus and airways function as well as supporting a healthy immune response.
How does Serrapeptase work?
Serrapeptase has the ability to break down inappropriate protein complexes in mucous, thereby favourably supporting the healthy balance between adequate mucous viscosity/elasticity and excess mucous.
Due to the enzymatic activity of Serrapeptase it has the ability to digest only non-living tissue at the sites where it is needed. This may assist with decreasing arterial deposits from building up after heart surgery.
Serrapeptase supports the body’s immune response to infections and helps modulate the immune response after surgery.
Doctor’s Best Serrapeptase protected by the serratic process:
Doctor’s Best Serrapeptase is protected by a new, cutting edge method – the serratic process which is a molecular coating designed to protect enzyme molecules from destruction by stomach acid. Once the enzyme-serratic complex reaches the intestines, the bile salts of that environment can break down the serrateric coating and free the enzymes to be absorbed.
As an essential dietary mineral, magnesium plays many important roles, including:
- Supports healthy sinus and airways function
- Supports healthy immune response
- May assist with injuries such as sprains and torn ligaments
- May assist with reducing swelling in post-operative patients
- May assist with atherosclerosis
- Helps dissolve hard particles made of protein that cause unwanted side effects from toxins, scar tissue, blood clots and cysts
Each 1 veggie capsule contains - Calcium (from Serrateric), Serrapeptase 120,000 SPU (serratiopeptidase activity units). Other Ingredients: Cellulose, Serrateric, modified cellulose (vegetarian Capsule). Serrateric is a trademark of Deerland Enzymes, Inc.
Adults: Take 1 capsule daily, away from food.

Is Best Serrapeptase non-GMO?
Yes, it is non-GMO
The Serrapeptase enzyme comes from the silk worm, do you have to kill many silk worms to get to the enzyme?
The bacteria from which the enzyme is isolated was first found in the digestive tract of the Japanese silkworm. The enzyme is isolated from the bacteria and produced through a fermentation process. No silkworms are harmed in the process.
What are activity units?
Enzyme strength is measured in terms of activity rather than weight, because an enzyme can be present but unless it is functional it will not be useful. Therefore, an enzyme product label should list the enzyme's functional activity, and this usually will come from a laboratory measure as standard activity units.
What is the Serratic process?
Doctor's Best Serrapeptase is protected naturally using a new, cutting edge method - the Serratic process, a superior, all-natural and vegetable-based alternative to enteric coating that protects the enzyme until it reaches the intestine for optimal absorption.
