The End Of Enteric Serraenzyme Capsules

Serraenzyme is a product that’s been around for a while. One of the first products designed to deliver the inflammation fighting serrapeptase enzyme into the body, it was first brought to the market by Robert Redfern of Good Health Naturally in the 1980s. Now in 2013 it’s time to say goodbye to Serraenzyme’s enteric coated capsules.

Before you all start panicking and emailing in, we know this is a massively important health product for so many of you. You rely on Serraenzyme to deliver it’s natural serrapaptase anti-inflammatory charge daily. This isn’t the end of the road for Serraenzyme, it’s a step forwards. Let me explain:

Serraenzyme has been available in four versions for many years:

- enteric coated capsules
- delayed release capsules
- enteric coated tablets
- delayed release tablets

Of the Serraenzyme product family, the one which has now reached retirement is the enteric coated capsule variety.

Why are the enteric coated capsule variety of Serraenzyme being discontinued? The simple answer is that advances in the design and manufacture of the delayed release formula now mean that Good Health Naturally’s new delayed release capsule formula delivers the same or more benefit than the enteric coated and in doing so it takes less other things into the body.

For those with a more technical mind, Serraenzyme to deliver it’s serrapeptase, it needs to release the enzymes into an active state after the serrapeptase has passed through the stomach. When the serrapeptase is released in the intestine, it gets absorbed through the wall lining and starts to be carried around the body on the blood flow. This enables it to support healthy resolution of inflammation in many places far away from the intestine, such as arthritis in the fingers or knees or lung inflammation. The new delayed release Serraenzyme formula protects the serrapeptase from the stomach and enables the serrapeptase to be released in the intestine fully. It does so without the extra materials that the old enteric coated Serraenzyme formula did and so represents a small but worthwhile step forwards for Serraenzyme users. Whilst the extra coating represented only a tiny amount, the body still needed to detox it out. With the new Serraenzyme formula, even that is a thing of the past.

Lucy Thomas-Redfern (Robert’s wife) emailed us this official news release on the change earlier this week:

In our efforts to deliver only the very best products available, we have changed SerraEnzyme capsules from being ‘enteric coated’ to ‘delayed release’. This will be used to fulfil orders within the week.

This new and innovative technique protects the serrapeptase from the harsh acidic environment of the stomach – ensuring full disintegration in the intestine. This slow method of delivery has been shown to further improve results!

To offer choice, all of the capsules in our serrapeptase range are now ’delayed release’ (phthalate free) and the tablets are all enteric coated (phthalate free). Apart from the coating everything else is the same! There is still 80,000iu’s Serrapeptase per cap, the price is the same and SerraEnzyme (delayed release) is Kosher & Vegetarian Society certified. 

The enteric coated capsule variety of Serraenzyme is now out of production. Some vendors may still sell it for a while until stocks are consumed or expired.

If you are a Serraenzyme user and you took the enteric coated capsule, your choice going forwards is either to move to the new delayed release capsule or to Serraenzyme in tablet form. In that variety, there will still be an enteric coated option for the time being.

The new delayed release Serraenzyme capsule features a blue bottle top as opposed to the red cap that the old enteric coated version had. Ask for this version now if unsure as you’ll then be taking Robert Redfern’s latest development in this unique and much loved family of serrapaptase products.


Robert Redfern, Serrapeptase, Blockbuster AllClear, Serranol & 30 Years in Health

One of our objectives at The Detox Shop is to take a responsible view on the products we promote. We read widely, attend many seminars, we try the products on ourselves and we also spend a lot of time talking to the people behind the products. We think it’s important to hear their story, to find out why they do what they do and in what ways their products can be used to best effect. One man with many years of experience in the health industry is Robert Redfern. Robert Redfern is a nutritionist, formulator and broadcaster and we speak with him at regularly. Many his products you may have heard of include the enzyme serrapeptase. When we spoke Robert most recently the progression in his work was more apparent than ever.

Our Angela with Robert Redfern, formulator of serrapeptase products including Blockbuster AllClear

Robert’s 2002 serrapeptase product was SerraPlus+, a formulation that mixed serrapeptase with MSM and trace minerals. It’s a great formula for combating inflammation and remains one of his best products for sports injury sufferers. But he didn’t stop there. In 2006 he introduced Blockbuster AllClear. This new formula quickly became known because it targeted cardiovascular health with a mix of enzymes including serrapeptase, clot dissolving nattokinase, Protease S and other enzymes together with a range of supporting co-factors. Next up, in 2010, came Serranol, a new formula that’s particular to inflammation with it’s mix of serrapeptase, curcumin, seaweed extract and vitamin D. Combining these nutrients together, sufferers of inflammation based conditions get the best support. And then on top, there’s still the original ‘miracle enzyme’ formula, Serrazyme, which is simply pure serrapeptase on it’s own in a high strength dose.

Robert started getting into health in the 80s, having previously not looked into the subject much. It wasn’t until the premature passing of his parents in their 60s that he got a shock that made him realise he needed to take this aspect of life seriously and re-evaluate his priorities. Soon he discovered that diet and lifestyle are the biggest reasons that some people enjoy lasting health whilst others suffer all the pain and anguish of deteriorating as time passes. At 65, Robert is still in as good a health as when we first met him, several years ago.

Robert told us that at the moment, he’s concerned about the effect of EU bureaucracy on the health of the region. The trend of late has been increased support of pharmaceutical healthcare whilst adding steps to make life difficult for nutritional supplements. A short while ago, it became illegal to market nutritional products with health claims unless they were backed by official scientific studies to back up the claims, a process that’s generally to expensive to be practically introduced for many traditional remedies. Now, the EU also want to make it law that supplements can only be made in weak formulas, something that would make them either less effective for consumers or more expensive to take effectively. The Save our Supplements campaign is well worth signing if you care about the freedom to look after your body in the way you choose. The biggest irony of this crazy new EU regulation is that it may mean more consumers buy online from suppliers based outside the EU who aren’t subject to it’s regulation. That could be a dangerous thing since the quality of nutritional supplements within the EU is very high.


Thoughts on the Threat of Antibiotic Resistance

MRSA

In recent times there has been much talk of the threat caused to public health by the growing resistance of many bacteria and viruses to antibiotics. The nature of these organisms is that they can mutate and evolve far faster than higher organisms like humans and other mammals. The result has been strains of gonorrhea that are antibiotic resistant, the well known MRSA bug that also has evolved to be immune to current pharmaceutical medicines and the UK government’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, describing this as a “ticking time bomb” which should rank alongside terrorism in terms of the severity of threat to the nation. How did it come to this and what actions can individuals take to help avert this?

MRSA virus

MRSA vius

Dame Sally’s fears are built upon the view that if viruses mutate and become resistant to current antibiotics, routine operations will become as dangerous as they were in the 19th century with people dying frequently from common infections. Modern medical practices have lead to antibiotics being given for almost any type of non-descript malaise: go to your GP and complain of a sore throat, coughing, upset tummy or any of a wide range of other symptoms and the chances are you’ll be offered a prescription for some type of antibiotic. Since bacteria and viruses reproduce so incredibly fast, the chances of one of them becoming resistant whilst you take you course of antibiotics is always there – as a society, we’re the ones giving the microbes plenty of opportunity.

It’s not just the NHS that’s driving bacteria towards having the upper hand. Factory farming is massively guilty. Antibiotics are routinely administered to both animals and fish. At the same time, antibiotics are not able to kill of complete strains of virus which means that those still in the wild have time to develop. Why worry about viruses in animals mutating? Anyone recall bird flu? SARS? These are viruses that started out as common bacteria in livestock and which mutated. When they did, they gained the ability to infect humans, with deadly consequences. Modern international travel meant that within days, the virus was spreading around the world. No-one knows quite what the next strain will be or whether any medicines in the world’s current arsenal will be of any use in preventing a potential epidemic.

How can we wean ourselves off of our dependence on antibiotics? I certainly don’t profess to be the expert on all viruses and bacteria, but there are certain things I know that I can do at home to make my need for antibiotics less. If I don’t use antibiotics personally, it’s one less incubator for the potential superbug.

1 – Ditch Eating Meat

Meat eating promotes superbugs in several ways. Firstly, unless you are only eating organic, free range produce, your food has been treated with antibiotics many times. Why? Because they are raised in conditions in which bacteria thrive and which also suppress their immune system, making the live stock prone to infection. A well known tenet of naturopathic medicine and Chinese medicine is that if you eat foods that had a strong immune system, they’ll pass that vitality on to you. Sadly most modern day folk are eating food with compromised immune systems and then wondering why they too get ill. You are what you eat. It goes without saying that I needn’t go too far into the implications of horse meat to what I just said to let you know that processed factory farmed meat is even more dangerous to life on earth.

In summary, meat eating supports the growth of superbugs by supporting and industry that overuses antibiotics to offset it’s bad practices, creates substandard food that’s prone to infection and can carry that bacteria to your table, and food that reduces the immune system of those that eat it. Cut out eating anything factory farmed. If you still feel you need meat in your diet, eat it only a couple of times a week and make sure that it is only certified organic and free range.

2 – Build Your Immune System

The immune system is a bit like a new computer. At first it works like a dream but by the time you’ve added all those service packs and updates in, it doesn’t work like it use to! It takes longer to respond and longer to complete tasks. Why is this?

As we go through life, we’re constantly exposed to toxins. Some come from our natural bodily functions, while more come through the air, the water, the food we eat and any other substances we consume. Before we know it, our body has a whole range of critical issues to deal with and unless we spend the time and energy to cleanse ourselves internally of these, our immune system ends up with parts of it constantly stuck fighting to keep these away from causing damage. In fact typically, the body will store these toxins in the liver, the bones and most visibly, in excess fat.

Detoxification is a term used for supporting the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself of these. Some basic detoxes would include regular home enemas to allow the colon to clear faster, or the taking of serrapeptase to clear blockages in the arteries from expose to animal and cooked fats or tar from smoke. Higher cleanses can target the liver, gallbladder, lymph, blood and bone. Start taking detoxifying foods like wheatgrass and chlorella regularly and build detox protocols into your life. By helping your immune system have less to fight against you’ll allow it to have more energy to fight off bugs, meaning less colds and flus and less need for antibiotics.

3 – Think Twice Before Taking Antibiotics

Antibiotics are a vital part of the modern medical arsenal, giving doctors an ability to fight infection they never had before. Yet many times, we’re taking them for vague symptoms or for symptoms which would soon pass. Some of these include:

  • runny nose
  • sore throat
  • coughs
  • headache
  • upset tummy

In naturopathic terms, these are all symptoms of a condition called ‘toxemia’ – the build up of excess toxins in the body. Once there are too many toxins in the body, bacteria come to feast upon the garbage which is why we get these common cold or flu-like symptoms. Here’s the important part of this logic to understand and the part we most commonly miss:

Bacteria eating up the excess toxins in our body is unpleasant to experience, however it fulfills a vital role. As they eat up the debris, they naturally die off from starvation and we are cleaned of our filth. This is why so many colds and flus come on after periods of excess, like the Christmas period where we tend to build up toxicity. And it’s also why most colds and flus last only a short time, especially if you eat a clean and modest diet or fast whilst affected by them. Because you’re not adding to the debris in the body, the bacteria devour the filth and then die off. Lastly, most of us are familiar with the post-flu high, a period where we feel good after having sweated out a cold or flu. This is because the body is clean!

If we take antibiotics when our body is naturally trying to harness the purging power of these bacteria to clean us, all that happens is kill the bacteria and keep our filth! The immune system then has to barricade the toxins in and when we next get ill, the symptoms are far worse as there’s now even more filth for the bacteria to feast upon.

It’s best to eat a clean pure, raw food diet so as not to let toxins in in the first place.

It’s best to supplement our dietary care for ourselves with regular detoxes to help out any toxins that get in through our own indiscretions or from environmental toxins.

The next best thing to do, is that should we start to develop cold or flu like symptoms, don’t reach for the antibiotics straight away. Most times, you’ll only experience symptoms for up to 3 days. Of course, if your symptoms do become more severe than a typical cold or flu, you should still speak to your doctor. I’m not advising you to turn your back on them as I don’t. I’m simply suggesting that if you feel rough but still able to get well on your own, it is better to let nature run it’s course as your body will thank you for it in the long run.

Lastly, go see the doctor. Even with great diet and lifestyle, regular detoxes and a good outlook towards self-care, it’s still possible to get seriously ill. If that happens, do talk to your doctor and keep all your options open.

4 – It Doesn’t Always Need To Be Antibiotic

Some years ago, I got really ill after visiting a hospital. It was a bit of a shock as I’d visited the top private hospital in Merton as an outpatient to see a consultant about a knee injury. The hospital looked immaculately clean to the eye yet by the afternoon, I could already feel the heaviness starting to come on in my head of a flu. Within hours it hit me hard and I was bedridden, surprised at how quickly this virus had gotten hold of me. I debated going to the doctor as I could feel within my body that this wasn’t a bacteria I’d experienced before and thee intensity of it’s virility was worrying – I wasn’t sure how bad I was going to get before I hit the bottom and started to fight back. Feeling slightly panicked, I called a naturopath I’d seen on Harley Street previously. His advice is still dear to me to this day.

“Is there anything I can do?” I sobbed.

“Do you have any high strength probiotics?” he answered.

“Yes, many” I replied.

“I want you to take a capsule every hour on the hour until the symptoms go. Antibiotics kill all the bacteria in your body but it’s easier on the body if you crowd out the bad with heaps of good bacteria.”

I grabbed my trusty bottle of Kiki Body Biotics and got started right away. Sure enough by nightfall, the steam had been taken off of the bug’s advance. I got a little worse overnight but followed his advice again for the following day and that took the symptoms down to a manageable level – I was up and about again. I kept on the probiotics for another two days before moving to a maintenance dose.

This high dose, high strength probiotic use has the added benefit over taking antibiotics that at the end, your immune system is massively bolstered rather than run down, so the chances of relapse are less. It’s common knowledge that you should take a course of probiotcs after antibiotics.

I’ve since found that if I wanted to accelerate results with this technique, taking a teaspoon of wheatgrass prior to the probiotic helps them get established quicker as does taking an oxygen therapy capsule formula like Oxypowder or Colosan half an hour after each probiotic. Friendly bacteria thrive in oxygen rich, alkaline environments and these supplements create them. Bad bacteria typically thrive in oxygen-depleted, acidic environments, so these supplements also help make life difficult for them.

These are four of the ways I’ve found I can take antibiotics less frequently so that for the cases where the doctors do need them, they’ve a far high chance of success and I’m not contributing to the superbug scenario. In the last twenty years, I’ve taken antibiotics twice and in neither case has it been effective against the symptoms, which has furthered my view that it’s better to take responsibility for my own health than make myself dependent on my doctor. He’s a great guy who means well and I still consult him, but taking the steps to look after my immune system have meant that I only need to ask for help when I really need it, which is far less frequent.


Dr Dale PhD Says Fukushima Radiation Should Make Us Consider Chlorella & Spirulina

Dr. Theresa Dale PhD, CCN, NP, of the Wellness Center for Research and Education issued a statement addressing the rising concerns about the after effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. Has radiation gotten into the water supply? What about the food chain? And if the radiation was carried over on the wind what can be done to decontaminate ourselves?

The Bad News

According to Dr. Dale, unless the Japanese government entombs the entire Fukushima Plant, it will continue spewing into the environment, land, sea and air. The threat of radiation contamination to foods and supplies is prompting us to reconsider our lifestyle, diet and choice of supplementation support. This is something similar to the words that Dr Brian Clements of The Hippocrates Health Institute said to us when we met him as he visited London earlier this year. Dr Clements specifically said that we should consider all fish as contaminated. This was further backed up in April when Dr Udo Erasmus PhD, one of the leading experts on Omega oils, visited the UK. Dr Erasmus confirmed for us that there is no such thing as safe fish oils; Omega oils should come from vegetable nutrition.

The Good News

Dr Dale advocates proactive action against the negative effects of radiation, something I know many other health thought leaders support. Dr Dale has created her own radiation detoxification protocol drawing on experiences  from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Some of the key elements involves the use of seaweeds as the iodine in them helps prevent radiation lodging in the body. In addition there are some supplements known to be of use including chlorella and spirulina algaes. These algaes are known for their detoxifying benefits which may include drawing heavy metals and dioxins from the body. Dr Dale includes these together with Vitamin D3 and multi-minerals as part of her protocol. This is also similar to Robert Redfern‘s recent Serranol formulation, which combines an algae seaweed with serrapeptase enzymes, vitamin D3 and circumin. It’s often the case that elements work synergistically together as the body needs numerous vital elements to function optimally.

The Catch

The important take home from all this is not that there are ways of helping yourself if you were exposed to radiation. The catch is that you need to take action. Contaminants from Fukushima have been carried around the world on the air and in the sea and radiation doesn’t go away quickly. It’s here for years to come as we can tell by looking at Chernobyl 25 years on. If we are to go on some figures (see page 11 onwards), up to 6 million have died as a result of cancers they may not have suffered had Chernobyl not happened. Here’s a short extract from that official Greenpeace report:

Thyroid cancer increased dramatically in all three countries, as expected because of the release of large quantities of radioactive iodine from the Chernobyl catastrophe. For example, incidence in the highly contaminated Bryansk region in the period 1988-1998 was double that for Russia as a whole, and triple that figure by 2004. Estimates in excess possibly of 60,000 additional cases have been predicted for Ukraine, Belarus and the Russian Federation alone.

Children who were 0-4 years old at the time of exposure were particularly vulnerable to this cancer. Before the accident, occurrence of thyroid cancer among children and adolescents averaged 0.09 cases per 100,000. After 1990, the frequency of occurrence rose to 0.57-0.63 per 100,000. The peak of thyroid cancer morbidity among those who were children and teenagers at the moment of the catastrophe was predicted to occur in the period 2001-2006. The cancer of the thyroid gland caused by Chernobyl appeared to be unusually aggressive, with early and rapid progression to form secondary tumours in the lymph glands and lungs, which worsened the prognosis and frequently demanded multiple surgical interventions to address.

Given the particularly long latency periods, which can be associated with thyroid cancer, new Chernobyl-induced cases may be expected to emerge for decades to come. Long-term monitoring of ‘at-risk’ populations, including those which received relatively low doses, will be essential to allow timely and effective medical intervention.

Research shows that the effects of a radioactive disaster takes years to show themselves fully. Radiation builds up in living organisms and in those which do not rid themselves of it fast enough, cancer may be the outcome.

Now is the time to adapt your life choices. Let’s take simple and easy steps to increase our standards of health. Avoid eating seafish and shellfish as these are an easy way for contamination to get into you. Take regular detoxification protocols and supplement with Chlorella and Spirulina to escort toxins out. Use formulas which include seaweed, like Serranol, or buy a seaweed condiment you can use on your food instead of salt. Keep working to improve your health. It’s not for today that you’re doing this so don’t worry about changing your world overnight, just keep going forwards!


45 Reasons to Take Serrapeptase

Serra Enzyme serrapeptase capsules

The following information was passed to us by Robert Redfern of Good Health Naturally. Their Blockbuster AllClear and SerraEnzyme Serrapeptase enzyme formulas are our most popular products and can be very useful in supporting health due to their function of reducing unhealthy inflammation in the body.

Robert has been talking about serrapeptase for many years now and these 45 serrapeptase reviews he passed us are all using either Blockbuster AllClear or SerraEnzyme. Here’s his (and his clients’) words in full:

————

Serrapeptase is the amazing enzyme that stops unhealthy inflammation in its tracks and clears inflamed dead tissue. Science has now concluded that the prime factor in the majority of disease is inflammation. Sorry drug companies, but your anti inflammatory and its side effects are not needed. Serrapeptase is the safest and most effective all round solution to inflammation and the feedback from such a wide range of conditions proves it.

Since I started in 2001 to publicize Serrapeptase, each year has seen a larger and larger array of conditions that can be helped by this wonder enzyme. Even though there are only 23 studies, the feedback from Practitioners, doctors and the thousands of users proves that nearly everyone can benefit by taking it.

 

A Practitioner’s Story

Sylvia De Santis – Naturopathic Counsellor

A patient – After taking 2 tablets 3x a day of the 40,000 IU, for about six weeks, her shortness of breath had lessened, her voice was back to normal, and her cough had subsided to just a little.

Personally – I had a constant pain in my back for over 20 years. It was something I just lived with, and never really took anything for it unless it got too unbearable. After taking Serrapeptase for about three weeks, I realized I had no pain. I am so amazed with this product that I talk to people all the time about. Almost everyone I know could benefit from it one way or another. I now take 2 to 3 a day just for maintenance.
~ Sylvia DeSantis

 

Acne Rosacea

‘I suffered from Acne Rosacea for 13 years’

Says Pat: “I’d suffered from acne rosacea for 13 years and nothing seemed to work. It was when I was onto my 2nd or 3rd bottle that I noticed the rosacea was clearing up.” Now on maintenance dose of 1 x 3 daily. Pat is delighted that her skin tone is now perfectly even and her pimple red nose a thing of the past.

 

Adhesions

‘Within three weeks, I felt relief’

Since September 2006, I suffered with abdominal adhesions and had to take a prescription three times a day, all with no results. I tried Serrapeptase capsules, and within three weeks, I felt relief. I am improved 85% to 90%. It also helped with my varicose veins. K.F. – USA

 

Angina

‘Since taking the 80k IU Serrapeptase tablets, my Angina has stopped’

I had angina pains just walking my dog around the block by the time I only reached the half way mark. I took 6 of the SerraEnzyme 80K tablets for 30 days, and now I’m down to just 3 a day. Again, I’m 82.
~ Larry Hawes – Ellenton, Florida

 

Animal Treatment

‘The dog had immediate results’

We have a 14-year-old arthritic dog that could hardly walk. As he got older, he was getting much worse. We came across Serrapeptase, and to our great relief, the dog had immediate results. It has now stopped hurting, he is able to sleep much more comfortably, and he is generally more relaxed.

Yours faithfully, A.H. – USA

 

‘They have all now put their horses, dogs & husbands on Serrapeptase.’

Ruth called very upset as her 26 year old mare was so chronically lame with arthritis that 3 vets had recommended that she be put to sleep. We recommended that she try SerraPet, as she had tried everything else. We put Walnut on 12 tablets a day and to keep her on that until Ruth noticed an improvement, then to drop the dosage to 8 a day. 18 months down the line, Ruth and Walnut are back riding round the village and thrilled, Ruth keeps Walnut on a maintenance dosage of 4 tablets a day.
~ Ruth Kelso – UK

 

‘A course of SerraPet got him back and winning’

I was delighted with the results achieved on my Pekinese who had back/leg problems and wasn’t walking properly. Vet suggested an operation! A course of SerraPet got him back and winning in the show ring. I have given my vet your brochure so that he could read up about it, as he was amazed at the lad’s recovery! Mrs. Jarvis

 

Arterial Disease

Carotid Arteries – ‘Serrapeptase has done the trick.’

I just wanted to let you know that I have my results from my ultrasound on my Carotid Arteries. The left in now completely clear from 48% blocked and the right has a small visible amount about 5% to 10% from 50% blocked.

From something that cannot be reversed, good old Serrapeptase has done the trick. Many thanks for all your advice and encouragement. Best Regards, Harold

 

‘It has kept my brother alive and helped my twin sister tremendously.’

My sister has a blocked artery in her brain (found by some kind of testing). BlockBuster and Serrapeptase has kept her from needed another stint since she started the therapy.

My brother has also improved dramatically since using your recommended products (heart blockage with no stints because of no insurance). He can function now, whereas before he was incapacitated by pain. Sincerely, Charline

 

Arthritis

‘I made up my mind I’d give it a try’

“I’d just like to say that it has worked wonders for both my back and knees.” Severe pain in his back and knees was affecting Mr Owen’s life badly. He walked sideways ‘like a crab’ as he puts it. That was until he heard about Serrapeptase on the ‘Dennis the Chemist’ Radio program.

“I made up my mind I’d give it a try,” he says. “I’d just like to say that it has worked wonders for both my back and knees. I have very little pain these days. I also recommended it to one of my sisters and it has cleared up her chest problems.”

 

‘I can hardly believe the change.’

I had varicose veins on my legs for 10 months. They stood out like ropes and I was too embarrassed to wear a skirt.

I also had very swollen ankles as a result of my arthritis. I often had to be lifted out of bed as it was too painful to stand.

After 3 months on Serrapeptase, the ‘ropes’ have gone off my legs and I can wear shorts. My arthritis is so much better that I have been able to go back to work. I can hardly believe the change. Gold bless you for finding this product. Keep up your great work. Marie Shortt

 

‘To my amazement within 2-3days I was feeling relief.’

I have suffered from Arthritis for about 20 years. I started taking Serrapeptase at a rate of 4 a day, 2 in the morning and 2 at night. To my amazement, within 2-3 days I was feeling relief. All I can say is this product is great! I am walking without pain. I can now walk briskly again after all these years. One of the plus sides I did not expect is that it has helped my heartburn as well. B.P. – USA

 

Arthritis – A Practitioner Story

I have a client who has suffered with a severe gout-like arthritic pain for 5 years. His general health also suffered, he developed a lung problem and he was at a very low ebb. He was taking large doses of Ibuprofen, with little relief. He started taking Serrapeptase, but after 3 months he was still in some paint and was going to give up. I persuaded him to carry on and he started to improve. He is now fully recovered, playing golf and enjoying life again. He is absolutely delighted. A Practitioner Story

 

‘The swelling has gone, I can feel my bones again.’

“One week later the right knee is normal, the swelling has gone and now I can feel my bones again.”

Thank you so much for Serrapeptase, I took it last Friday [20/08/04] and after a few hours the pain in the knee, which has been present for the past 3 months, was gone. I couldn’t believe it, so continued with taking 3×2 tablets a day, and now one week later the right knee is normal, the swelling has gone and now I can feel my bones again.

I tell everyone this miracle, and everyone is writing down your website. May it benefit more people who are suffering so long with the wrong medicines. Thank you and Warm Greetings, Maria. T. Ph.D – Holland

 

‘I no longer need medication for Arthritis’

“I have to know it ‘works’ and isn’t just another wonder substance. That’s why I am recommending Serrapeptase to my clients. I think it is fantastic!”

Karla is 62 and for the 17 tears has suffered from severe arthritis and gout. She tried everything to rid herself of the pain even painkillers although she dislikes taking orthodox medicine.

I no longer need medication for Arthritis or for Gout and am feeling so very much better. Thank you for a GREAT product; I can recommend it to all my clients and will be happy to do so. Kindly greeting, Karla Graham

 

Arthritis: Osteoarthritis

‘I’ve recommended it to several people, they’re taking it too.’

“I’ve been taking Serrapeptase for two months now and I felt wonderful after the first few days. I didn’t think it was going to work but it has. I have no paint in my back at all and all the inflammation has gone too. There has been a marked improvement and I feel good. I think it may take a bit longer to deal with my knees and I’m prepared to persevere.

I’ve recommended it to several people and they are taking it too. I’m doing my bit to spread the news!” Mrs Morris

 

Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bone Spurs, Varicose Veins

“Within 3 days my pain diminished by 25-30%, after 1 full week on 600 mg twice a day, I was pain free! I have decreased to 400 mg bid and am still pain free.”

I think that this is the most miraculous product I have ever encountered. I have passed out literature and talked up the product to my friends, family, and clients. I am licensed to do medical, rehab and sports massage.

One of my clients wears support hose because of ropy varicose veins. He said that after only a month he is almost free from this condition. He is also impressed with the results he has seen in the reduction of symptoms of his Osteo Arthritis. Thank you for providing this wonderful miracle. A.R., LMY – USA

 

Osteoarthritis: Ann Marlatt, RH “I have not had to take any other medications since just a few days after I started taking Serrapeptase. Congratulations to a wonderful discovery.”

It was difficult for me to believe that this product could be successful as it was advertised. I did endless hours of research online before deciding to put this product in my body.

To say how wonderfully surprised I was that this product actually worked is a large understatement. Congratulations to all of us who decided to give this fantastic product a try. Ann Marlatt, RN

 

Asthma

Thank you…for making a difference to my life!

I have had bronchial Asthma for over 5 years. I started taking Serrapeptase over 12 months ago and was surprised to find that I have not suffered with a cough or cold in that time, whereas before taking Serrapeptase I would suffer 2 or 3 infections a year. Thank you Good Health Naturally for making a difference to my life! Mr. G. – Ireland

 

Back Problems (Lower)

I was in a lot of pain for 4 years until I found Serrapeptase. I had a severe slipped disc about 9 years ago and was in a lot of pain for 4 years until I found Serrapeptase. I have taken it ever since, it is amazing. I just take 2 a day, unless I do something to my back, which is once or twice a year, when I take a much higher dose, which gets rid of the pain. I would not be without Serrapeptase, it is like my crutch, I rely on it to keep me pain free. My husband takes it for mild asthma and it certainly helps him. I tell everyone about it, including my chiropractor. Linda Wigman

 

BlockBuster

‘One of my patients used Blockbuster for deep vein thrombosis.’ I’m Sheila Balmer, a practitioner. I have used Serrapeptase/Nattokinase myself for a varicose vein and over several months it has cleared up. On of the my patients used Blockbuster for deep vein thrombosis which has cleared and he found that his Diabetic retinopathy also cleared up and he’s convinced it is the Blockbuster as he has not taken anything else. He is not on a maintenance dose and has been taking the product for a year. Sheila Balmer, Practitioner

 

Myopic Macular Degeneration

A few months ago, I was startled to notice straight lines had developed a wavy appearance and immediately saw my optician who made an urgent referral to an eye clinic. I was diagnosed with a bleed at the back of the right eye, caused by Nyopic Macular Degeneration, for which I later needed laser treatment.

It was while I was recovered from the laser treatment, in mid-June that my father recommended that I take Blockbuster AllClear capsules to aid recovery. He had read that the Serrapeptase enzyme digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts and inflammation.

I agreed that it seemed the very thing that I needed to help mop up the damage caused by the bleed. After I started taking them, I began to feel better immediately and felt my eyesight to be much improved.

Last week I was delighted to be told at my follow up appointment at the laser clinic that I did not need any further treatment as the blood vessel has now closed. Also the back of my eye was much better and the tissue and fluid were settling down nicely. I truly believe that the Serrapeptase enzyme played a major part in my excellent recovery. Pam Hitchen

 

‘I went from 98% cranial blockage to NO BLOCKAGE whatsoever!’

I had 98% cranial blockage on the left-hand side of my brain. I bought one bottle of Blockbuster AllClear in August and one in September, and I took 3 in the morning and 3 in the evening. I just saw the doctor today, and after only two bottles of Blockbuster, I went from 98% cranial blockage to NO BLOCKAGE whatsoever! The nurse also told me that I had “really good blood flow”. Needless to say, I’m ecstatic and going to celebrate my newfound health. M.D. – USA

 

‘I will certainly continue to use that product’

To the “Wow!” people, I have been a health nut most of my adult life. Had both knees injured in a car accident, and by the time I reached 77 years of age I had developed some discomfort in my leg joints while descending the stairs. Since my garden is terraced, that took away some of the joy out of being in my garden. After I started taking Blockbuster AllClear, I noticed the pain was noticeably diminished in just one day. I will certainly continue to use that product and look forward to more pleasant surprises. P.H. – USA

 

Blood Pressure

Serrapeptase made my blood pressure, which wasn’t bad, even better. My blood pressure has usually ranged around 135-145/75-85. This morning, after taking 40,000 IU capsules for 1 month at the maintenance rate of once per day, my reading was 97/57 (pulse 67). This was taken in the morning before getting up from bed. This was astounding for me. I understand that it is critically important to have the diastolic value (lower, resting heart pressure) as low as possible, which I was delighted to observe. What a marvellous product! It helps make what is good even better. G.M. – USA

 

Blood Sugar Levels

‘I can barely keep this product on my shelves.’

“I can barely keep this product on my shelves. I’ve had clients with diabetes tell me this product has helped their blood sugar levels. Also M.S. patients have reported increased mobility.” B.R. – Sarasota, FL

 

Breast Cysts

Mrs Mattley had a Lumpectomy in 1998

In 1998 I had a Lumpectomy removed from my right breast and 25 Radiotherapy treatments, since then I have had a thick hard line under my breast, and the breast has always been extremely tender, but after less hand 2 weeks on the 6 per day Serrapeptase Caps 80,000 IU all was soft and feeling normal, like the other side, it was a shock really, but what a lovely one.

Also I was diagnosed in the 1970’s with Bronchiectasis, so I have always had chest problems. I am hoping the Serrapeptase Caps will help this condition. Mrs I Mattley

 

Breast Engorgement

‘I now recommend it on a regular basis’

Caroline Harvey is a complementary therapist. “I now recommend it on a regular basis and I am quite impressed. I started taking it myself  when I was breast feeding one of my sons and developed quite bade mastitis. After a week of taking Serrapeptase I developed nervous stabbing pain. I think Serrapeptase was helping my body get rid of the cystic material as it soon went. It is expensive but it’s worth it.” Caroline Harvey

 

Bronchiectasis

‘She says she has never felt so well’

My sister aged 62 has lived in the Middle Eastfor many years and has suffered from bonchiectasis and emphysema for a long time. This is not helped by the air conditioning that runs all the time. At Christmas she caught pneumonia and was in hospital. When she recovered from that, someone suggested she take Blockbuster. She said ‘Oh, go on then, I might as well’. She has taken them ever since. She has a lot less rubbish on her chest, so does not cough as much. She says she has never felt so well. Anonymous

 

Bursitis

‘Last night was the first pain-free…in 4 weeks’

Thanks for the info. Just an update on my condition. Last night was the first pain-free continuous sleep I have had in 4 weeks. I will continue with the Serrapeptase therapy (3X3 per day) for now. Thank you, Jerry – Canada

 

Cardiovascular Disease

‘I couldn’t get out of bed.’ I have my own testimony to add to your program. I was so weak, I couldn’t get out of bed. Ninety-nine percent of people at my age die. I am 72 years young and still biting at the bit. I had deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the popliteal space behind the left patella. A part of the embolism broke off and relocated in the right lobe of my left lung. I also had a 20-year fungal infection on my big toe of my left foot, which completely ameliorated and is gone. The skin is pink and the nail is normal. My energy is back, and me mental outlook is superlative. Thank you Robert Redfern and Serrapeptase. Be Well. G.M. – USA

 

Catarrh

‘I have had terrible problems with Catarrh for many years.’

I have found SerraPlus caps marvellous for me. I have had terrible problems with Catarrh for many years. Several of my family have it, so it may be genetic. I developed asthma through stress, but managed to get rid of that by changing my diet and having cranial osteopathy, but was still left with catarrh. A friend suggested Serrapeptase and since I started taking the SerraPlus my nose is clear and I no longer have to constantly clear my throat. I am really pleased with them. Anonymous

 

Catarrhal Rhinopharyngitis

Serrapeptase helped with my really terrible Catarrhal Rhinophraryngitis.

When I was taking Serrapeptase it helped my really terrible catarrh, I could hardly breathe in the mornings. Someone advised me to try Serrapeptase and it certainly moved the catarrh. My friends are also using it, one man had trouble with his foot and another had a similar problem with catarrh. We all agree it is very much to be recommended. And I make a point of getting to bed by 10.30 the nigh Dennis the Chemist is on the radio…the first thing he ever mentions is you’ve guessed it Serrapeptase! Steve Oliver

 

Chelation

‘I no longer require Chelation.’

“After using Serrapeptase my diabetes is under such better control that I no longer require Chelation.” M.C. – Pine Mt., CA

 

Cholesterol

‘Thank you so much’ Thank you so much from my mom…she just had her cholesterol checked and it was down. Thank you so much, Karlene F.

 

Chronic Ear Infections

Ear & Sinus Infection – I suffered from an ear & sinus infection for several months. I took three rounds of very strong antibiotics. Within days of taking two tablets each day of Serrapeptase, there was an improvement, and the infections is completely gone now. In addition to the ear and sinus healing, I notice that I am feeling better overall. The best thing is that there have been absolutely NO negative side effects. I appreciate the information you have provided and thank you very much. B.W. – USA

 

Colon Problems

‘My colorectal problems feel better.’

I am taking the SerraEnzyme 80 quad-strength tablets 80,000 IU Serrapeptase – one per day. I have only been taking since Monday and already my colorectal problems feel better. For your info too, I recommend them to a friend of the lady who gives me a massage twice monthly as her friend has an enormous scar on her face from surgery. She has only been using them for two weeks and already can see a difference. Lucinda W.

 

Coughs

Mrs. T’s Persistent Cough & Colds Mrs T’s persistent cough and colds made her life a misery. “To be honest I am delighted with it. If I have a cold or a chesty cough I find it’s completely gone in a couple of days. It also helped another friend with severe cystitis. It is amazing that such a simple remedy should be so effective.” Mrs. S. T.

 

Crohn’s Disease

I had Open Heart Surgery (5 bypasses), 15 Stents, Angina Attacks, and Crohn’s Disease.

In September 1995, I had open heart surgery with five bypasses. By 2006, I had 15 stents installed. In November 2007, I started chelation, as I was having angina attacks 3-4 times a week. I started taking the 80,000 IU SerraEnzyme in December 2007, as I was once again experiencing daily angina attacks when I walked my little dog. Since I’ve been on Serrapeptase, all symptoms of angina have stopped, and I walk my dog every day here inFloridain heat around 80 to 90 degrees – a one mile walk, and no angina.

Plus, at age 80, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. If it were not for finding Serrapeptase, I would not now have control over my Crohn’s as well. L. H. – USA

 

Cysts

‘Within three months the cyst had disappeared’. “I feel as though I’ve been given an extra life!” says 64-year-old Dorothy Antrobus, “I feel and look good and it’s thanks to Serrapeptase. I swear by it.”

Some white ago Dorothy had surgery on her knee and all seemed to go well. Then she began to experience a lot of pain and was told she had developed a cyst. The rest is history. Within three months the cyst had disappeared. Dorothy Antrobus

 

Diabetes: Type II

Robert, your ‘good-word’ is spreading.

My diabetes specialist Doctor (Endocrinologist) has been delighted with my condition, and all blood chemistry measures have been virtually “non-diabetic”. If you know the scale, my so-called A1c measure has been 6.8. The only issue not seemingly ideal to me specialist, is that my so-called “good cholesterol” number is around 36, where, with my being a type II diabetic, she would prefer to see it over 40. I have thoroughly read, and endeavour to follow, the regimens in your excellent booklet “The ‘Miracle’ Enzyme is Serrapeptase The 2nd Gift from Silkworms”. Robert Rivard

 

‘My Type II Diabetes Caused Leg Numbness’ I lived with numbness in my legs for at least ten years, and it had been getting progressively worse. My herbalist told me about Serrapeptase. I took 6-8 of the 80,000 IU tablets once a day after I got home from work. I also take wheat grass. After only about a week and a half, I was absolutely amazed that the numbness in my legs had receded, and I could feel my legs again! I no longer “stump around”, and I’m able to walk normally. I’m pretty excited about that! K.S. – USA

 

Emphysema

‘I have Emphysema, but now feel like I did 30 years ago.’ Dear Staff, Thank you for the fast service. I’m not writing this to claim a freebie, but to say with Serrapeptase and Oxysorb, my life has changed beyond my wildest dreams! I have Emphysema, but now feel like I did 30 years ago. I have reduced my inhalers by 50% and could do with less. I felt today as if I was in a dream! Regards, Tom Scally

 

Emphysema – Caroline Harvery

I’m Caroline Harvery a complementary therapist. “The best result I have had was with a man who was 93 when I first saw him; this was about 2 years ago. He was suffering from very bad emphysema to the extent he could hardly walk let alone go up stairs and was on oxygen 12 hours a day. Since he took Serrapeptase he has been able to lower his intake of oxygen by 50%. I saw him a few months ago he is not 95. He was going to the Health Centre on the treadmill and said he was looking for a new wife. He is taking minerals and vitamins well, but it is the Serrapeptase that’s has yielded best result, lowering inflammation in the lungs. Caroline Harvey

 

‘It seems to have no bad side effects at all.’ When a recent respiratory test revealed a remarkable improvement in Mr Clarke’s breathing capacity, medical staff were impressed and want to learn more about its properties.

“It is early days yet,” says Joy, “we’re going to wait until he sees the specialist next time. But my husband is certainly continuing to take Serrapeptase. Unlike the steroids which affect the adrenal gland and cause depression, Serrapeptase seems to have no bad side effects at all. Maybe in time we can get him off these other drugs. I know they’re not good for you in the long term.” Mrs. and Mr. Clarke

Takeda Discontinue Dasen Enzymes

Takeda-pharma_200x200

Takeda are the biggest pharmaceutical company in Japan and on the 21st February they voluntarily withdrew their Dasen® anti-inflammatory enzyme product from the market in Japan. In the official press release it says:

Osaka, Japan, February 21, 2011 – Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (“Takeda”) announced today its decision to voluntarily recall Dasen® 5 mg tablets, 10 mg tablets, and 1% granules (generic name: serrapeptase), anti-inflammatory enzyme preparations sold in Japan, starting on February 21.

In the double-blind studies that have been conducted to compare Dasen with placebo (“Studies”), no statistical significant differences were found. Based on the results of the Studies, the Committee on Reevaluation of the Pharmaceutical Affairs and Food Sanitation Council (“Committee”) of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan (“MHLW”) held a meeting on January 19, 2011 in order to discuss the possibility of categorizing Dasen as the product for the future reevaluation with additional studies to be conducted, including the contents of such studies if that is the case.

As a result, the Committee pointed out the necessity of conducting additional studies in a manner that reflects current clinical treatment practices, and to prove the efficacy of Dasen. In accordance with the instruction of the MHLW, Takeda has been studying the feasibility of conducting such studies. Takeda believes that the efficacy of Dasen would be confirmed through additional clinical trials with a revised study design, however, it has reached a conclusion that it would be difficult to conduct additional studies as requested.

This clearly illustrates the difficulty of producing laboratory style results using natural ingredients as Takeda believes their serrapeptase product works but that it’s extremely costly to verify this to clinical standards. Factors like diet do alter results as enzymes taken on an empty stomach by a raw food vegan will have less inhibiting factors to contend with than those consumed near breakfast by someone on a meat eating diet with lots of fried and diary foods.

One other factor that’s well worth noting is dosage. Vitamin C was well documented to have a different action at high dose by multiple Nobel prize winner Dr Linus Pauling. Robert Redfern, who had similar advice to that we gave earlier regarding diet inhibiting function when we spoke last May, was quick to point out today that the Dasen product was always a  light activity formula with only 10,000IU compared to BlockBuster AllClear and SerraZyme‘s 80,000IU of serrapeptase. Robert Redfern emailed us stating that he has criticized Dasen’s activity level as too low previously and that he has popularised serrapeptase after over 100,000 users reported positive results. Results that came from the 80,000iu formulation include: lung conditions, arteries, colon, MS, pain, morton’s neuroma, inflammatory problems, ENT problems, cysts, and uses on dogs, cats and horses. One of the most miraculous stories came from a cerebral palsy sufferer, Mike Tawse who continues to vocal about his results.

I don’t know Mike Tawse personally and have never met him face to face. I certainly wouldn’t bet my life on the effectiveness of serrapeptase enzymes as an anti-inflammatory. However I have used this enzyme myself as part of a recovery process. I used it first after I gave up smoking and eating meat and I did find my circulation much improved. I’ve also used in frequently as a means of speeding recovery from sports injury – I like to train martial arts so big bruises and sprains are a fairly common part of my life. It’s easy for me to test how quickly I recover with and without serrapeptase. I’ve also personally known others who’ve used serrapeptase as part of their recovery from surgeries including a hernia, a broken leg and uterine fibroid removal by myomectomy. In all cases the serrapeptase user felt they recovered faster than they expected with less pain than they anticipated.

As always my advice is to take good care of yourself! Whilst there are some arguments going on about whether one natural remedy is more useful than another, one thing we know all scientists, doctors and nutritionists agree on is that fried foods and smoking are bad for you! I believe if you approach serrapeptase from this angle, viewing it as a useful supplement to your self-care programme rather than a medicine you can turn to (it isn’t), then you’ll enjoy a lot more healthier days than you’ll suffer ill ones.

Serrapeptase enzymes are useful for detoxing parts of the body that it’s hard to clean through abstinence alone. Raw food educator, David Wolfe, uses serrapeptase as part of a protocol to combat nano-bacteria in conjunction with MSM and a highly alkaline diet. Dr. Billie J. Sahley, Ph.D says serrapeptase may positively benefit inflammatory health conditions like arthritis, headaches, bronchitis and sinusitis. Dr Hans Nieper says may serrapeptase help remove arterial plaque, reduce the chance of stroke and open constricted arteries. So whilst the Japanese may not be able to find a way of economically proving Takeda’s Dasen serrapeptase formula, there still are plenty of health educators and authorities standing behind serrapeptase enzyme use and consensus of opinion is that high activity levels are what counts.


Why So Many Different Enzymes?

Enzymes are often described as the catalyst of life and their role as the enabling agent should not be underestimated. Whilst the body uses enzymes for a myriad of different functions there are two types which are used therapeutically:

  1. Systemic Enzymes
  2. Digestive Enzymes

Systemic Enzymes

Systemic enzymes are those that support the functioning of the body’s systems, although the term isn’t used to describe those that aid the digestive system. Systemic enzymes can do many things in the body such as reduce inflammation and fibrin, dissolving blood clots and clearing out old and dying tissues. This process would be carried out by the body’s own enzymes normally. In poor health, the pancreas can be slow to function reducing the amount of available enzymes and factors like poor diet and toxin ingestion can overwhelm the body’s ability to produce sufficient enzymes to mop up these problems. Supplementing reduces the burden on the body and frees up vitality to work on other tasks.

Favourite Systemic Enzyme formulas include Serrazyme which has high levels of the serrapeptase enzyme in it. This makes it suited for supporting the health where inflammation is a problem such as arthritis or sports injuries. There’s also Blockbuster Allclear, a formula which mixes Serrapeptase with Nattokinase, digestive enzymes, Seaprose and co-factors. It’s well known as being a great supplement for cardiovascular health, helping you keep your veins, arteries and capillaries well.

Digestive Enzymes

If you look at the nutrition information on a food you can see it’s made up of lots of different things – carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. When it’s in it’s original state it’s all one lump. Digestive enzymes are what breaks down food when you eat it and converts it into the various forms your body can use. Creating digestive enzymes takes quite a lot of the body’s energy – that’s why we feel tired after a heavy meal like a roast dinner – and we don’t always produce enough to deal with out food properly. Gas is one unpleasant symptom and there are many others. Some people are unable to digest dairy products, something that’s very common, especially amongst orientals. It may cause an excess of phlegm, mucus, runny nose as well as gas and this is all caused by the body not producing sufficient enzymes to break down the proteins in milk. These proteins are called lactose and people who don’t produce the lactase enzyme to digest it are called lactose intollerant.

The situation gets more complicated when we eat different food types together. Bread, potatoes or rice are predominantly carbohydrates and they digest easiest on their own. Meat, eggs, beans and nuts are mostly proteins and proteins are easiest digested when eaten on their own. Yet when humans eat – unlike any other creature on earth! – we want to mix bread with eggs, or meat with potatoes, fish with rice or eat beans and pulses with rice. This makes it hard for our stomach’s own enzymes to fully digest the food and supplementing digestive enzymes makes this easier on us.

Why Do We Stock So Many Enzymes?

This is an interesting point and there are two main reasons. Firstly, enzymes occur naturally and most foods have them in. However heating the food destroys the enzymes. This principle is one of the core foundations of the raw food lifestyle who’s followers generally enjoy better than average health simply by not cooking their food.

Enzyme therapy supplements are slightly different. The vast majority of enzyme therapy supplements available on the market use enzymes that are created in laboratories rather than extracted from food. Not all manufacturing processes are created equal, in my opinion! If the enzymes are exposed to heat at any time during the manufacturing process then their strength my be reduced. A capsule that claims to be, for example, 10,000IU may in reality only contain the strength of 1,000IU if it has been through a poorly designed manufacturing process. My own personal experience of taking enzymes at high doses was that some brands simply failed to live up to what one would expect of them. Needless to say, we don’t stock any enzyme therapy brands that we ourselves feel are poor – we take our own choices ourselves!

An easy way of seeing if a digestive enzyme is strong is to open the capsule and spread it onto some food. I do this if I’m trying to make a banana smoothie and I’ve found that the bananas are slightly unripe. If they’re still in that slightly green, starchy phase before going sweet they’ll make a smoothie that sets hard – not much fun to drink! If that’s the case I’ll empty one or two Digestive 150 Digestion Enzyme capsules into my blender. The smoothie will become runnier and more liquid as the enzymes break down the excess starches in the bananas.

The second reason for stocking several choices of the same product is because everyone is different. You have your own physiology. Out of the enzyme therapy brands that have passed our quality standards, some may work better for you than others. An example here is that of Angela. She’ll take Digestive 150 Digestion Enzymes if they are blended into a smoothie as described above but finds that taking two capsules with a meal is less comfortable for her than taking Lifegive HHI-Zyme Digestive Aid Digestion Enzymes. It may be more important to you to have the highest possible strength enzymes or you may find that one which does the job as gently as possible gets your vote. It’s an individual choice as to which is right for you.

Lastly do know that both Pineapple and Papaya are great sources of enzymes. Wherever possible we recommend that you support your health with wholesome, natural, organic foods, fresh air and water, sunshine and exercise. The combination makes all these elements and enzyme supplements more effective.


What’s the Difference Between Blockbuster AllClear and SerraEzyme?

Blockbuster AllClear serrapeptase enzymes

Blockbuster AllClear and SerraZyme are both well known enzyme therapy products by Good Health Naturally. Both contain the enzyme Robert Redfern wrote about in his book,”The Miracle Enzyme“, serrapeptase. So what’s the difference?

What’s in Blockbuster AllClear?

A quick scan of the formula shows that this isn’t just serrapeptase. It’s also Nattokinase, proteolitic enzymes like protease, lipase and amylase and a range of supporting co-factor placed into a synergistic blend. For those of you into the great habit of reading the label of anything you’re going to consume, here’s the full breakdown right from the Blockbuster AllClear bottle:

Blockbuster AllClear Supplement Facts

Serving Size: 2 Blockbuster AllClear Capsules s
Blockbuster AllClear Servings Per Container: 120
Amount Per Serving Information

Policosanol 6 mg
Pycnogenol® 10 mg
*Daily Value not established
Other Ingredients: HPMCP enteric coated Serrapeptase, brown rice powder, silicon dioxide, stearic acid.

What is in SerraZyme?

SerraZyme is a concentrated serrapeptase formula. In fact each capsule has twice the amount of serrapeptase in it than a Blockbuster AllClear capsule has. But that’s all it has. This is a concentrated 80,000IU enteric coated capsule designed for maximum serrapeptase delivery and nothing else.

So which enzyme formula should I use?

Go for the big one! Get Blockbuster AllClear, it’s got everything, right? Wrong. Building health is about using the right tool for the job. Both products are great formulas in themselves and although similar in that they contain serrapeptase, both are substantially different.

For arterial cleansing – for instance if you’ve been a fan of smoking, eating meat, fried foods and are concerned you aren’t doing enough to maintain cardiovascular health – Blockbuster AllClear’s synergistic formula is ideal and many people have written their personal experiences of how it has helped them.

For arthritis and other inflammation based conditions, SerraZymes high dose serrapeptase makes a significant aid to wellbeing by reducing inflammation.

Noting the difference may help you choose the right enzyme therapy product for you. Do note that we also have instructions for use of serrapeptase.


Serrapeptase – Instructions for Use

Serra Enzyme serrapeptase capsules

The following are the guidelines provided Good Health Naturally regarding the use of their Serrapeptase products including Blockbuster AllClear. They are provided  here in full for our customer’s reference:

The Basics

Whatever you are trying to acheive with Serrapeptase, the golden rule is: the greater the activity rating (IU), the faster the results.

Serrapeptase is suitable for vegans and does not contain any animal products.

Serrapeptase is produced in large tanks in the laboratory (not from silkworms).

Serrapeptase is safe for everyone, as there are no known side effects. There is no drug interaction with Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is therefore safe to take with prescribed medications.

Most people begin to see benefits within a couple of weeks, but others may need a month or so, depending upon what their specific health issues are. To be fair, give yourself at least two months.

To answer the most common next question: No, Serrapeptase does not thin the blood. It does, however, help prevent blockages forming due to ‘sticky’ blood (which is in fact caused by inflammation).


Golden Rules

 

  1. Always take Serrapeptase on an empty stomach, about 30 minutes or at least 2 hours after a meal.
  2. Preferred times for taking Serrapeptase are upon waking, mid afternoon, and/or before going to bed
  3. Always take Serrapeptase with an 8oz (1/2 pint) glass of water.
  4. You may continue taking any prescribed medication because there is no drug interaction with Serrapeptase. What our customers often find is that their doctors take them off various medications since their bodies no longer require them
  5. You can take Serrapeptase continuously without diminished results or experiencing any side effects and Serrapeptase is ideal for long term use for healthy maintenance and prevention.
  6. Both the tablets and capsules are enteric coated and are best taken whole. However for children (over the age of one) and those with severe swallowing difficulties, you can crush the tablet or break open the capsule and mix the powder with a small amount of water and honey
  7. To make swallowing easier, lean forward as far as possible as this opens the throat
  8. Serrapeptase is very effective for dogs, cats and horses and they may be given the same doses as humans for best results. Give Serrapeptase to them in the same way as you would normally give them a tablet. Again, you can break open a capsule and mix it with a small amount of something they will enjoy (but not meat or protein)
  9. For throat problems chew a tablet or break open a capsule and chew the powder, then let it slowly move down the throat. Add honey for extra comfort.
  10. Can I continue to take Glucosamine and other joint support nutrients? Yes, as they perform a different function and will help to accelerate your results.

There is more detail on Serrapeptase and Blockbuster AllClear on their respective product listing pages.


Blockbuster Allclear Testimonial

Blockbuster AllClear serrapeptase enzymes

We recently got the following review of serrapeptase and anti-inflammatory enzyme formula, Blockbuster Allclear from Robert Redfern in his Serrapeptase News. We’ve reproduced it here as it gives an idea of some of the ways people are using this product:

“I’m Sheila Balmer, a practitioner. I have used Serrapeptase/Nattokinase myself for a varicose vein and over several months it has cleared up. One of my patients used Blockbuster Allclear for deep vein thrombosis which has cleared up and he found that his Diabetic retinopathy also cleared up and he is convinced that it is the Blockbuster Allclear as he has not taken anything else. He is now on a maintenance dose and has been taking the product for a year.”

~ Sheila Balmer, Practitioner

We’ll bring you more Blockbuster Allclear reviews and news as it comes in. Till then, good health to you!
