How many Serrapeptase capsules or tablets should you consume daily? This is one of the most common questions associated with this systemic enzyme, but unfortunately, this question doesn’t seem to have a clear-cut answer. Sources online seem to disagree with each other, and even product labels can’t be trusted to say the same thing.
But if there is one thing that everyone can agree upon, it’s that for the most part, Serrapeptase is completely safe. As a result, overdosing on it is nearly impossible. (Unless you happen to suffer from a bleeding disorder, but that’s another story!)
With that in mind, can we deduce the correct dosage of Serrapeptase?
According to WebMD, the following doses have been studied in scientific research: 10 mg of Serrapeptase 3 times on the day before a surgery, once after a surgery and 3 times daily for 5 consecutive days post-surgery.
But what if you don’t need a surgery and would like to experience the benefits of Serrapeptase on a long term scale? Well, once again, it varies on the products, and on the condition(s) that you are targeting. Most people recommend that you start with 1 capsule, 3 times a day on a an empty stomach. Once again, we can’t stress enough the importance of taking Serrapeptase and other systemic enzyme supplements on an empty stomach. Remember — they aren’t digestive enzyme supplements!
But here’s the thing: This dosage isn’t set in stone. Start slowly, but if you don’t notice any change after a few days, increase your dosage. Some people take as many as 30 capsules a day and are still alive and breathing! (And doing better than ever, too.) If you’re unsure or worried or would like to receive another opinion on this topic, then don’t hesitate to consult with your doctor before increasing the dosage.
There are many things that make systemic enzymes special. Their ability to fight inflammation, for one, And of course the way they work together to alleviate a number of health conditions that affect countless of Canadians each year.
But if there is something that makes systemic enzymes even more amazing than that (in our eyes, at least), it’s how easy it is for people to purchase them and consume them. (Well, what do you expect in a post entitled “How to Use Systemic Enzyme Supplements”?) 😉
With that being said, you might want to refer to one of our earlier articles that brings up the topic of dosage, and how many systemic enzyme capsules you should take per day. You can find the article here.
However, in that article we didn’t discuss the importance of taking systemic enzyme supplements on an empty stomach. This is to ensure that your body absorbs them into the blood instead of just using them to digest your food. (A task which should mostly be left to digestive enzymes.)
To resume and to make the process a little bit clearer for you, here is how we recommend that you use systemic enzymes:
It’s as simple as that.

Now that you are more familiar with systemic enzyme therapy and its numerous benefits, it’s time to talk about dosage.
As we have said in several of our earlier articles, there is no known side effects associated with systemic enzyme therapy — assuming that you do not currently suffer from a bleeding disorder or are on a blood thinning medication. It is not uncommon for doctors to place patients on as many as 10 systemic enzyme capsules 3 times a day. Of course, those patients generally tend to suffer from serious and painful diseases or conditions, and more often than not their doses are dramatically reduced within a few weeks.
With that being said, how many capsules should you take if you don’t suffer from a serious disease or condition? Well, reading the recommended dosage found on the label of a particular product is usually a good starting point. Because “blends” differ from one another, you will find that the recommended dosages also vary.
According to Dr. William Wong, a strong advocate for systemic enzyme therapy and a trustworthy source on this topic, the typical dosage for encapsulated systemic enzyme blends is 3 capsules 3 times a day. Keep in mind, however, that some people react more to systemic enzyme blends than others, while some react less. This is why if no benefits are felt after 3 days he recommends people to start increasing the dosage to 4 capsules 3 times a day. If no benefits are still felt after increasing the dosage, he recommends taking 5 capsules 3 times a day, and on and on until people can confidently say that their condition has improved.
Tableted systemic enzymes, on the other hand, generally require bigger dosages to be effective. 5 tablets 3 times a day is usually what people start with, but it is not uncommon for people to increase their dosage to as many as 80 tablets a day!
