Pain of any kind is such an annoyance, and no one is exempted from it. It is the most common ailment that everyone experiences in varying degrees. It may occur in many various parts of the body as a result of an injury, disease, or even emotional disorder.
Pain is generally caused by dead tissues, inflamed tissues, or scar tissues. There are two types of pain, depending on the condition and severity of an ailment. Acute pain may be sharp and severe but may come and pass in a relatively shorter period, around 3 to 6 months. It may be directly related to soft tissue damage and as the injured tissue heals, the pain is likely to subside.
Chronic pain, on the other hand, is persistent and may progress over a longer period of time and may worsen due to environmental and psychological factors. It may be related to various medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, migraine, cancer, fibromyalgia, sciatica, previous trauma or injury to name only a few.
Pain can disrupt one’s functionality, crippling his capacity to perform at a maximum. Moreover, physical pain may cause emotional stress. His work performance and his state of mental and physical health are largely and negatively affected. That is why people continuously find remedies to find relief from pain.
From conventional medicine to alternative healing, people have discovered and continue to discover various cures. One such cure is an enzyme known as serrapeptase. It is an enzyme naturally present in the intestines of silkworms, which the moths use as they emerge from their cocoons. This particular enzyme is responsible for breaking down the complex fibers of the cocoon.
And just as it is able to dissolve the protective silk case, the serrapeptase enzyme is also able to break down fibrins. And once it has dissolved the fibrins, it facilitates the drainage which consequently speeds up tissue repair. Thus, it has been used for years as an anti-inflammatory alternative to NSAIDs or Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs.
Serrapeptase can also alleviate the pain that comes with the inflammation by restraining the release of bradykinin. Bradykinin is physiologically and pharmacologically active pain-inducing peptide that causes blood vessels to dilate and therefore causes blood pressure to lower.
Moreover, Serrappetase is capable of breaking down dead or damaged tissues without harming living tissues just as it is able to dissolve atherosclerotic plaques without harming the inside of the arteries.
