Serrapeptase and Alzheimer’s

Most Americans have enough familiarity with Alzheimer’s to know what a truly dreadful disease it is. The sufferer gradually loses mental ability and cognitive functioning, usually starting with a seemingly innocuous loss of memory, and continuing on little-by-little through a loss of many different cognitive functions, eventually even losing control over bladder and bowels. The downward decline toward death can take many years, during which time the toll the disease takes on those who stand by — families and caregivers — is incalculable.

Now it’s possible that a “miracle enzyme” called serrapeptase or serrapeptidase offers some very good news for individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s and their families.

In a nutshell, serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, protoelytic enzymes are “any of a group of enzymes that break the long chainlike molecules of proteins into shorter fragments (peptides) and eventually into their components, amino acids. Proteolytic enzymes are present in bacteria and plants but are most abundant in animals. In the stomach, protein materials are attacked initially by the gastric enzyme pepsin. When the protein material is passed to the small intestine, proteins, which are only partially digested in the stomach, are further attacked by proteolytic enzymes secreted by the pancreas.”

That’s within the human body. Other proteolytic enzymes include papain and bromelain, extracted from papaya and pineapple, respectively, and both available as supplements for humans.

And then there’s serrapeptase, whose origin is bacteria in the silkworm moth digestive system, which the just-matured moth uses to dissolve the tough, fibrous cocoon and escape to the light of day. That cocoon is tough — and so is the silk which is made from the cocoon, so it needs something pretty effective at dissolving proteins, and serrapaptae fits the bill.

Serrapeptase doesn’t just dissolve this precursor of silk, it can dissolve a number of different proteins in the human body, including amyloid plaque — the very material making up the infamous plaque tangles in the Alzheimer brain. Given that amyloid plaque may precede Alzheimer’s symptoms by a decade, serrapeptase should be an excellent addition to any Alzheimer’s prevention programs as well.

    Peggy — does Amazon ship to New Zealand? If so, you can order VeganZyme here. But note that this product does NOT include serrapeptase.
