In nature, serrapeptase is produced by a bacteria that lives in the intestinal tract of the silkworm. There is absolutely no way to extract enough serrapeptase from nature to support the worlds consumption of serrapeptase. What is actually used to meet the global demand for serrapeptase is serratia peptidase. Serratia peptidase, is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic enterobacteria Serratia E15. This bacteria is cultured to produce, through batch fermentation, the necessary amount of serratia peptidase to meet global demand. At this point, however, the actual silkworm has nothing to do with the enzymes that make it into our (or anyone elses) products. And thus, silkworms are not harmed.
Anti-Stroke Therapy with Serrapeptase Enzyme
This organic material (insect enzyme protein) is not a human food, not a drug, not medicine by itself. It is a harmless protein needed in the silkworm life cycle to open an escape port for the mature pupa to take up life as an adult silkworm. It breaks apart only dead tissue. Taking as little as 10mg half an hour before a meal three times a day can assist the immune system. If you are not sick, it can be used as a preventative measure against the ill effects of a diet rich in partially hydrogenated fats.
To determine whether you are the victim of hydrogenated fats, read the labels of everything you eat that has a label. If the words partially hydrogenated appear anywhere on the label, you are ingesting the single most effective means of coating your entire cardiovascular system of arteries and capillaries with patching plaster (cholesterol) and calcium (artery hardening). The degeneration of your blood delivery system is everywhere in your body- from the scalp to the soles of your feet, especially including the hair-thin capillaries in your brain.
Probably the easiest way to get a stroke, or series of strokes (that may go unnoticed), is to eat candy bars all day, and slather margarine on everything instead of bovine milk butter. Hydrogenated fats are also called trans-fatty acids. Biochemistry literature is soaked in research proving beyond argument that trans-fatty acids are anti-nutrition toxins that cannot be digested normally and directly cause hardening of the arteries throughout the body.
Hydrogenation is the chemical process of superheating a vegetable oil in the presence of hydrogen with nickel as a catalyst. An extra hydrogen atom is injected into each molecule of vegetable fat. This stiffens the otherwise liquid vegetable fat. Between the superheat and the extra atom, a never before seen non-food ingestible is created.
