Do you know what an enzyme is and how important it is to you and ofcourse to your body?

This is what Brittanica.com says:

An enzyme is a substance that acts as a catalyst in living organisms, regulating the rate at which chemical reactions proceed without itself being altered in the process. … Without enzymes, many of these reactions would not take place at a perceptible rate. Enzymes catalyze all aspects of cell metabolism.

Enzymes help your metabolism, so we need enzymes. But cooking, microwave and pasteurizing kills enzymes and let’s find out exactly why we need these guys.


Serrapeptase is one of the very important enzymes that can help your health. It is the most available one we know and we can buy in the reform- or healthfood store. Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme; it breaks down proteins into smaller components and become amino acids. The good thing about this enzyme is: it reduces inflammation. And as we all know inflammation is one of the issues you do not want in your body. But there are more very helpful possibilities in this specific enzyme. It is used in dentistry, after surgical treatments. The swelling after surgery will go away a lot faster, no need for ibuprofen or other drugs that can harm your stomach. It can also reduce pain for people with certain inflammatory ear, nose, and throat conditions.


Serrapeptase is an enzyme that’s been used, in Japan and Europe, against pain and inflammation. It could also decrease risks of infections, prevent blood clots, and help people at chronic respiratory diseases.

While communicating this, more research needs to be done to confirm the efficacy and long-term safety of serrapeptase.
