Ingredients & Description
High Potency Serrapeptase - 120,000 units - 90 enteric coated capsules
Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme isolated from the non-pathogenic Serratia bacteria species found in the digestive tract of the Japanese silkworm. Serrapeptase has been used as a nutritional supplement in Europe and Asia for well over three decades. Each enteric-coated vegetarian capsule of Best Serrapeptase and Best High Potency Serrapeptase contains pure serrapeptase designed for optimal absorption in the intestinal tract.
Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule daily away from food.

Question: Will this product assist with copd?
A: There is no indication that the manufacturer has tested specifically on COPD however there has been some research that supports Serrapeptase for the immune system and lung support.
\"The mucous membranes are a thin tissue layer or epithelium that lines the body’s hollow structures (cavities) opening to the exterior, such as the upper respiratory system. They secrete a slightly viscous fluid called mucus, which is actually a complex viscoelastic gel that lubricates and moistens the cavity surfaces. As a part of normal, healthy physiology, mucus is the first line of defense in the nose and lungs to trap and filter inhaled dust, pollutants, and other potentially damaging agents. Proteolytic enzymes such as serrapeptase can break down inappropriate protein complexes in the mucus, thereby favorably influencing its properties and helping to support the healthy balance between adequate mucous viscosity/elasticity and airway comfort levels associated with the mucous membranes of the respiratory system.
Research with serrapeptase for maintenance of healthy sinus function began decades ago in Japan. Studies thus far indicate that serrapeptase is a safe and useful supplement to promote favorable viscosity of nasal and bronchial mucus. Two of the earliest human trials found that serrapeptase had favorable effects on upper airway viscosity. In these assessments, mucus was collected from participants after a 4-week supplementation period and evaluated using an rheometer to determine its viscoelastic properties. The enzyme’s action most likely involves the breakdown of mucus protein structures, consequently allowing the cilia (microscopic hairlike projections in the mucosal epithelium of the upper respiratory tract) to helpfully transport mucus in the airway.
Serrapeptase can also significantly affect sputum viscoelasticity. In an investigation of forty individuals who were randomly assigned to one of five groups, six participants were given serrapeptase for one week. Sputum viscoelasticity was analyzed using a rheometer and researchers concluded that serrapeptase altered the “relaxation behavior” of sputum—meaning that serrapeptase helped support airway clearance.
In a subsequent larger double blind trial, 193 participants were randomized into two groups and were instructed to take either serrapeptase or placebo 3 times daily after meals for one week. After 4 days and at the end of the 7–8 day period, mucus secretion, airway freedom, and measures of immune response were significantly favorable in the serrapeptase group compared with the placebo group. A recent study in which the immune system of rats was challenged further confirms human data that serrapeptase can be used for supporting the immune system.\"
