Serrapeptidase is an enzyme originally isolated from silkworms, where it helps the emerging moth to dissolve its cocoon. Numerous researches during past years have investigated its potential benefits. Evidence and results led to the conclusion that the substance is useful as an anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular system, immune system and respiratory support. Particularly, Serrapeptidase has been shown to assist with blood clots build-ups and hence prevent conditions such as heart attack and stroke. Aside from this, Serrapeptidase can also dissolve already formed blood clots, making it efficient against a number of disorders. Safety concerns refer to the long-term use of the substance, while short term use (up to 4 weeks) seems to be generally safe for most people.
Best known for its unique antioxidant capacities, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is particularly important due to its solubility properties. ALA is soluble in water and in fat, hence its potential benefits extend to all kinds of tissues and areas. There is scientifically documented evidence that Alpha Lipoic Acid supports various heart-related conditions, by preventing hardening of the arteries and blood clotting. Consequently, the risk of stroke is significantly diminished through action on these 2 factors. Other uses of ALA are still investigated by researchers, and include HIV neuropathy, glaucoma, kidney disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s, support for the cognitive function for older patients and migraines among others.
