Serretia - Serrapeptase
Serretia is the strongest Serrapeptase available
Serrétia is the first Serrapeptase product of it's kind providing a whopping 250,000 spu's per dose. 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 supporting normal scar tissue, normal blood clotting, and allows for more fluid and natural blood flow throughout the body.*
Serretia has a variety of different benefits that may help with the following:
- Sport injuries*
- Promote healthy sinus activity*
- Promote free joint mobility*
- Muscle tears and pulls*
- Surgical recovery*
- Normal fluid retention*
In adittion to being the strongest Serrapeptase product on the market, Serretia is the first product to be encapsulated in Acid Armor® technology capsules. Acid Armor® capsules are designed to break down slowly, allowing for a more controlled release of the capsule's contents. These new capsules offer protection from the acidic pH of the stomach without the use of potentially harmful chemicals such as those found in enteric coatings. Acid Armor capsules have no added components, their action is the result of smarter design. The capsules contain a thicker and stronger vegetable cellulose in addition to a tighter locking fitting mechanism, in order to prevent premature leakage of the capsule's contents. This allows Serretia to have enteric properties without the use of dangerous chemicals.
Most Serrapeptase products are Enterically coated with HPMCP (hydroxypropyl methylcellulose Phthalate). HPMCP is used to protect enzymes from acid. The European Union banned phthalates in 2003 and all phthalates in toys in 2005. China and Mexico have also prohibited the use of phthalates in toys. The U.S. has been a bit slower to join these prohibitions. (And ironically, the other countries' bans are based largely on U.S. research.) California became the first state to ban the manufacture, sale, and distribution of children's products containing phthalates in 2009. In March of the same year, the U.S. Senate passed legislation introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein for a similar ban in toys. If it becomes law, perhaps false "phthalate-free" labeling scandals like this one will be a thing of the past.
So, if phthalates are banned in toys, why would you be OK with consuming them in your dietary supplements? We wouldn't, and we strongly urge you to take the time to find out what products contain them. So far, the only mainstream enzyme products, including Serrapeptase that don't contain these plastic chemicals are made by Arthur Andrew Medical®. No matter how any other products compare, we feel that Arthur Andrew Medical's stand on not using synthetic chemicals in their products says a lot about the company.
Arthur Andrew Medical developed Serrétia, a 250,000 SPU (the strongest available) Serrapeptase that uses Acid Armor® capsules. These all-natural phthalate free, capsules break down slowly to help protect their contents from prolonged exposure to acid. Acid Armor® capsules are designed to break down as soon as they have exited the stomach, maximizing potency and the absorption period.
