Serrapeptase may be helpful in reducing the plaque accumulations in the arteries.
* The formation of plaque involves deposits of fatty substances, cholesterol, cellular waste products, calcium and fibrin (a clotting material in the blood) on the inner lining of the arteries. Excessive plaque results in partial or complete blockage of the blood's flow through an artery. Due to its protein-dissolving ability Serrapeptase may help prevent or gradually break plaque build-up in arteries.*
Serrapeptase is thought to work in three ways: • It may reduce inflammation by thinning the fluids formed from injury, and facilitating the fluid's drainage. This in turn, also speeds tissue repair.
* It may help alleviate pain by inhibiting the release of pain-inducing amines called bradykinin.
* It may enhance cardiovascular health by breaking down the protein by-products of blood coagulation called fibrin.
* Serrapeptase can dissolve the fibrin and other dead or damaged tissue without harming living tissue.
* This could enable the dissolution of atherosclerotic plaques without causing any harm to the inside of the arteries.
