Study Shows Serrapeptase is Stronger than Trypsin, Chymotrypsin and Aspirin
A team of researchers has proposed a potential alternative therapy regarding the anti-inflammatory activity of proteolytic (protein digesting) enzymes. Researchers looked at the viability of three reputable proteolytic enzymes and aspirin, as well as their possible interactions in reducing various states of inflammation.
Their study provides strong evidence that various proteolytic enzymes - specifically trypsin, chymotrypsin and serratiopeptidase (serrapeptase) - can significantly reduce inflammation when taken alone and provide a synergistic affect when taken in low doses with aspirin without an increased risk of ulceration; a concept that can be a breakthrough for those who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to treat chronic inflammation. This population is at high risk of developing ulcers with long-term conventional NSAID use.
To conduct their study, the team used rat models with experimentally produced acute and sub-acute inflammation. Acute inflammation was produced by injecting carrageenan, a gelatinous extract from seaweed, in the right hind paw of the animal to simulate edema. Sub-acute inflammation was produced by implanting cotton pellets subcutaneously, or just under the skin, forming a granuloma.
Animals were looked at in groups differentiated by various treatment methods. Saline solution was used as the control group. Experimental treatments consisted of trypsin, chymotrypsin and serrapeptase - alone in three different doses - aspirin, and an enzyme-aspirin combination. Treatment was administered 30 minutes prior to inducing inflammation and was repeated once daily for 10 days.
The researchers assessed the level of edema produced by the injection by measuring the change in volume of the paw. Serrapeptase showed better anti-inflammatory activity on acute inflammation than trypsin, chymotrypsin and aspirin.
The cotton pellet was removed after 10 days and dry weight was taken to measure the amount that had been broken down. Serrapeptase was found to be more effective at reducing mass size than trypsin, chymotrypsin and aspirin in the sub-acute model of inflammation.
While the lowest dose of all three proteolytic enzymes failed to be effective, they possessed a synergistic effect when taken in low doses with low doses of aspirin in both acute and sub-acute models of inflammation.
The stomach was also inspected and measured for ulcers. The serrapeptase, chymotrypsin and trypsin treated animals showed a significant reduction in damage to the stomach as compared to the control. Enzyme-aspirin combinations showed a significant reduction when compared with aspirin treated animals.
While all forms of treatment proved to be effective at some level, the results seemed to favor the use of serrapeptase as a feasible anti-inflammatory alternative.
The research team stills need to confirm the results in clinical trials on people, but the findings offer support for treatment options including systemic enzymes like serrapeptase that may change how inflammation is treated and possibly prevented.
At Biomedic Labs, serrapeptase is included in many of our systemic enzyme products, including Serracor-NK, Exclzyme, and Exclzyme 2AF. Serrapeptase is also available in its purified form as SerraRX80 with 80,000 units of activity (SU) per capsule. Take charge of your health and help control your inflammation.

There has been a lot of debate in recent months as to whether or not Stevia can cause infertility. While Stevia is being touted as the “new” sugar substitute of choice, it is interesting to note that this all-natural sweetener has been used for more than 1,500 years with little (if any) side effects.
So, why all the hype regarding Stevia’s ability to alter a woman’s fertility? The answer to that questions stems from two sources:
That begs the question, if Stevia can indeed prohibit a pregnancy, why hasn’t more research been done to see if it can be used to develop better and safer contraceptives for women? The answer to that question is, “It has!”

The Extraordinary SuperHero Supplements, Humic and Fulvic Acid!!
Ok ladies! Eureka Moment!! This. is. HUUUUUGE!!
Get excited! Get very excited! OK, so check this out!
Imagine this - a supplement that actually conditions cell membranes and makes them more permeable, so that all of the nutrients from your FTF supplements can more easily enter your cells?! And how about a supplement that also increases absorption of your FTF supplements by up to 60 times into your cells?!
Now take a moment and imagine that superhero strength with the amazing SerraLife Serrapeptase +Plus, Fallopian Tube Formula I and II! Driven full steam ahead directly into your now highly absorbent (and thirsty) cells!! Yea, that's Fulvic Acid. Let that marinate for a second. Really. Pause. And reflect on that for a second. I'll wait.

"Hello everyone I get really annoyed when I read all these articles and comments about 'evaporation lines' on home pregnancy tests, and especially, when such comments or articles are said to be written by so-called 'experts' or 'clinicians', and which seem to leave a large number of women with all sorts of doubts and anxieties about test-results. So I thought I would sit and write a few facts about various similar tests. I am a clinician and I also have much experience using various tests within laboratories or clinical settings. I have also been trained in the medical micro-biology (lab-testing)...
