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.
