Serrapeptase is an enzyme isolated from bacteria found in silkworms. Other names: 

  • Butterfly extract
  • Serratiopeptidase
  • Silkworm enzyme

It is a proteolytic enzyme that comes from the Serratia bacteria species strain E15.

It has been used for years in Japan and Europe for reducing inflammation and pain due to surgery, trauma, and other inflammatory conditions.

The use of proteolytic enzymes like trypsin, chymotrypsin, and bromelain came into practice in the United States during the 1950s after it was observed that they had anti-inflammatory effects.

The same observation was made with serrapeptase in Japan during the late 1960s when researchers initially isolated the enzyme from the silkworm.

In fact, researchers in Europe and Japan proposed that serrapeptase was the most effective proteolytic enzyme for reducing inflammation.

Since then, it has been found to have several possible uses and promising health benefits


Serrapeptase is most commonly used for reducing inflammation — your body’s response to injury.

In dentistry, the enzyme has been used following minor surgical procedures — such as tooth removal — to reduce pain, lockjaw (spasming of the jaw muscles), and facial swelling. It is thought to decrease inflammatory cells at the affected site.

One review of five studies aimed to identify and confirm the anti-inflammatory effects of serrapeptase compared to other drugs after the surgical removal of wisdom teeth.

Researchers concluded that serrapeptase was more effective at improving lockjaw than ibuprofen and corticosteroids, powerful drugs that tame inflammation.

Pain Relief

Serrapeptase has been shown to reduce pain — a common symptom of inflammation — by inhibiting pain-inducing compounds.

One study looked at the effects of serrapeptase in nearly 200 people with inflammatory ear, nose, and throat conditions .

Researchers found that the participants who supplemented with serrapeptase had significant reductions in pain severity and mucus production compared to those who took a placebo.

Tension Headache and Migraines 

Serrapeptase may help inflammation or arthritis and may ease tension headaches and migraines, but these results may vary as well. More studies are needed to determine how consistently the substance works in the body. There isn’t enough data on the long-term effects of this supplement.

 Breast Engorgement 

Breast engorgement studies have noted a significant improvement in those who took serrapeptase versus those who took a placebo. Breast engorgement is most common in people who are nursing, although people who are pregnant or have PMS may also experience breast engorgement. No studies have demonstrated one way or another if serrapeptase can be transferred to the baby either in utero through the placenta or through breast milk. Therefore, if you’re pregnant or nursing, it’s important that you talk to your health care provider before using serrapeptase.

Chronic Respiratory Diseases

Serrapeptase may increase the clearance of mucus and reduce inflammation in the lungs in people with chronic respiratory diseases (CRD).

CRDs are diseases of the airways and other structures of the lungs.

Common ones include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and pulmonary hypertension — a type of high  pressure that affects the vessels in your lungs.

While CRDs are incurable, various treatments can help dilate the air passages or increase mucus clearance, improving quality of life

May Dissolve Blood Clots

Serrapeptase may be beneficial in treating atherosclerosis, a condition where plaque builds up inside your arteries.

It’s thought to act by breaking down dead or damaged tissue and fibrin — a tough protein formed in blood clots.

This could enable serrapeptase to dissolve plaque in your arteries or dissolve blood clots that may lead to stroke or heart attack.

Serrapeptase helps dissolve hard particles made of protein that cause unwanted side effects from toxins, scar tissue,
blood clots and cysts.
