Read our Serrapeptase Review

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.



Stinging Nettle is also known as Urtica dioica and belongs to the Urticaceae family. It is a herb that is known for its "male health" benefits usually referring to the prostate and urinary tract. It also serves to have anti-inflammatory properties. It was initially indigenous to Africa and some parts of Asia but can now be located in all temperate zones across the continents. Moreover, it has been used to promote hair growth and lactation and to prevent uterine bleeding after childbirth.
