Serrapeptase is the name given to an enzyme naturally found in silkworms. Silkworms use Serrapeptase to dissolve their protective cocoon, without damaging the emerging silk moth.
The Serrapeptase enzyme was discovered in the early 1970’s and is now produced commercially through a fermentation process, ensuring that the silkworm population is not affected and meaning our Serrapeptase supplement is both vegan friendly and cruelty free.
Serrapeptase enzymes require protection from the acidic environment of your stomach, without a protective coating the enzyme would be denatured and no longer useful. At Natures Aid, our Serrapeptase supplement is manufactured using our unique Entero-coated® technology, allowing the tablet to pass through your acidic stomach environment into your intestine, before it is released and absorbed into your blood stream. Each of our tablets provides 250,000 units of enzymatic activity and are suitable for vegans.
