What is Serrétia?
Serrétia is comprised solely of serratiopeptidase, more commonly known as serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme originally discovered in the intestine of silkworms, and is produced through the isolation of the microorganism Serratia E-15.
How does Serrétia work?
Taken on an empty stomach, serrapeptase (a fibrin digesting enzyme) enters the bloodstream via the small intestine. Serrapeptase triggers fibrinolytic activity within the body. Its inherent ability to digest proteins enables the enzyme to support normal sinus activity as well as a normal inflammatory response to overexertion.
Why should I take Serrétia?
Serrétia helps to speed recovery after sports injuries, surgeries, muscle tears and pulls, as well as promote healthy sinus activity.
Can I take too much of serrapeptase?
Although Serrétia contains highly potent serrapeptase, it can be safely incorporated into your supplement regimen. There have been no serious adverse events reported from the use of Serrétia. However, it is important to follow dosage instructions unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider.
Is Serrétia enteric coated?
Enteric coatings are designed to protect enzymes and other supplements from stomach acid. Plastic-like chemicals known as phthalates are often used in this coating process. Phthalates are actually banned in children's toys in Europe and Mexico, so why would we ever include these in our formulas?
Arthur Andrew Medical has instead developed an all-natural, chemical-free acid armor capsule. These capsules are comprised of an extra-thick layer of cellulose (vegetable capsules) with a micro-threaded locking mechanism to prevent leaking. Acid Armor capsules have been designed to delay the release of the capsule's contents for up to an hour, without the use of potentially harmful chemicals.
When is the best time to take Serrétia?
For best results, take the product at least one hour prior to eating and/or two hours after a meal.
Can I take Serrétia with other supplements?
Serrétia can be used safely with other dietary supplements. In fact, we recommended taking it in conjunction with NEPRINOL or SYNTOL for additional fibrinolytic and probiotic support.
How long does it take for Serrétia to work?
Although every person is different, some have reported feeling the effects of systemic enzymes in as little as 45 minutes. For therapeutic regimens, the progression may be slow for some and quicker for others. Serrapeptase has been clinically shown to thin mucosal secretions and limit pain due to injury. Those effects are typically noticed within days, however other benefits of taking Serrétia on a regular basis will progress over time.
Is Serrétia Kosher?
The formula is Kosher, and a copy of the certification is available by request .
Is Serrétia vegetarian or vegan?
The formula is vegetarian and vegan and is in accordance with the guidelines of the AMERICAN VEGETARIAN ASSOCIATION.
Is Serrétia non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism)?
Yes, Serrétia is non-GMO. The microorganisms used to produce this enzyme product are not genetically engineered organisms as defined by the NATIONAL ORGANIC STANDARDS BOARD. Genetically engineered is defined as follows: Made with techniques that alter the molecular or cellular biology of an organism by means that are not possible under natural conditions or processes. Genetic engineering includes recombinant DNA, cell fusion, micro-and macro-encapsulation, gene deletion and doubling, introducing a foreign gene, and changing the position of genes. It shall not include breeding, conjugation, fermentation,
hybridization, in-vitro fertilization, and tissue culture.
Is Serrétia generally recognized as safe (GRAS)?
Yes, the enzyme that makes up Serrétia is GRAS by the FDA.
