Since its discovery in the early 70’s, Serrapeptase has quickly become one of the most talked about supplemental enzymes in the medical field. This is mostly due to its amazing anti-fibrin and anti-inflammation properties that alleviate a wide array of conditions. Often taken alone or with other enzymes in what are known as “blends”, the benefits of Serrapeptase extend across the whole spectrum of the human body.
But as is the case with every supplemental enzyme out there, caution should be taken and research should be done before making a decision involving the use of Serrapeptase. If you are here, then we can only assume that you are indeed doing your research properly, and for that we congratulate you. 😉
With that being said, one of the most pressing questions that you probably have concerning the usage of this supplemental enzyme is this one:
Are there any side effects associated with Serrapeptase?
While long term effects have not had any documentation, no side effects are currently associated with the daily consummation of Serrapeptase. However, it is good to know that Serrapeptase is not recommended for everyone.
Because of its blood thinning property, it is not recommended for people with bleeding disorders or people who are on a blood thinning medication to consume this supplement. Likewise, because of its anti-fibrin property, Serrapeptase may interfere with blood clotting post-surgery. Therefore, the consummation of Serrapeptase should be halted a few days, if not weeks, prior to a surgery.
