Serrapeptase is an enzyme that is derived form silkworms. It has been traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory agent but is presently used as a joint health supplement. Serrapeptase works by helping the body break down protein and might also decrease mucous. It has been used to treat some conditions involving pain and inflammation such as sinusitis, laryngitis, sore throat, ear infections, thrombophlebitis, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease. Moreover, it has been used by women for non-cancerous lumpy breasts and by nursing mothers for breast pain brought about by breast engorgement from too much milk.

Japanese Knotweed is an invasive species that has been traditionally used in the Chinese and Japanese medicine due to its gastrointestinal and circulatory health benefits such as cancer prevention. It is a large, herbaceous perennial plant that belongs from the Polygonaceae family.
