Simply put, an allergy is an immune system response to an antigen (or allergen) that is not itself intrinsically harmful. Everyone's immune system is different; what one person can eat, touch, or otherwise tolerate without issue can result in a brutal adverse reaction in someone else. Reactions can be relatively mild (if annoying) like a rash. At the other end of the spectrum, some severe reactions can lead to anaphylatic shock and death if not immediately treated.
For example, windblown pollen released by orchard grass has no effect on many people. However, in others it can result in a violent attack of hay fever (or allergic rhinitis). Equally, there are those who simply cannot injest peanuts - in any form - or risk a life-threatening allergic reaction. Then again, peanut butter & jelly are staple lunch ingredients for many a child and adult.
There is no universal cure-all for the immune response to allergens since those responses can be so varied. However, when the allergic response involves certain kinds of tissue inflammation, the natural enzymes in Serrapeptase can be quite effective in providing relief.
Asthma can have a variety of causes ranging from genetic, to environment, to lifestyle. However, it should be taken seriously as it can be life threatening.
The medical and pharmaceutical industries have long maintained that asthma is either genetic or the result of dust mites, pollution, etc., and therefore drugs are the only solution. However, there is growing evidence that artificial, unnatural “foods” and their lack of nutrients could be to blame. In either case, the underlying source of all of these triggers is inflammation. The fact that steroids, the drugs of choice in treating asthma, are anti-inflammatory agents, bears this out.
Serrapeptase, with its all natural anti-swelling properties, has been shown to benefit asthma suffers, both adults and children. By helping to reduce swelling throughout the lungs, Serrapeptase helps relieve bronchial swelling, making breathing easier. It also aids in reducing the viscosity of the mucus by breaking down and liquifying mucous secretions and fibrin clots, thereby improving the elimination of broncho-pulmonary secretions.
Due to its anti-swelling properties, Serrapeptase has been shown in clinical studies to benefit chronic sinusitis sufferers. In this condition, the mucus in patients' nasal cavities is thickened and hypersecreted. This thickening causes mucus to be expelled less frequently. Japanese researchers evaluated the effects of Serrapeptase on the elasticity and viscosity of the nasal mucus in adult patients with chronic sinusitis. Just as in asthma sufferers, Serrapeptase reduced mucus viscosity to improve the elimination of broncho-pulmonary secretions.
General Ear, Nose & Throat Issues
Various clinical trials have supported the efficacy of Serrapeptase in relieving problems associated with ear, nose, and throat infections, postnasal drip (mucus running down the throat from the back of the nose), laryngitis, nasal obstruction, anosmia (loss of smell), and difficulty in swallowing.
Serrapeptase helps to relieve these issues by clearing out the swelling (mucus). Then the body's own healing mechinisms can kick in, renewing healthy tissues. In many cases, people got relief in just three to four days.
One of the most common, chronic lung dieases in children and young people, cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that very often results in early death. It causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive tract, destroying lung tissue and interferring with the absorption of nutrients. Lung function worsens over time, eventually leaving the person disabled. However, advances in science and research have dramatically increased the the average life span for people with CF who live on into adulthood to approximately 35 years.
Because CF is a genetic, inherited disorder, there is no cure at present. However, Serrapeptase contains the most effective natural enzymes for helping to clear out swelling and dead/scar tissue, and reducing and breaking up mucus. This is so important as the bacteria in the mucus cause infections and damage to the lungs and digestive system. Serrapeptase is well-tolerated in children, and will not interfere with any other medications they may be taking.
