Serrapeptase: Benefits, Dosage, Dangers, and Side Effects


Serrap is a peptide found in human blood plasma. It is used as a treatment for various diseases such as AIDS, cancer, diabetes, malaria and others. Serrap helps in the absorption of nutrients from food into your body. Serrapeptidase (serRAPE) is one of the most common types of drugs used to treat many conditions including HIV/AIDS, Cancer and other chronic illnesses.

Serrap is a small protein that is produced in the liver. Its main function is to transport amino acids, vitamins and minerals into cells. Serrap also plays a role in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It acts as an antioxidant, which protects against free radicals. Serrapeptidase (serRAPe) works by breaking down proteins into smaller pieces called peptides, which are then absorbed through the intestinal wall into your bloodstream where they can be transported throughout your body.

Serrap is usually taken orally or injected directly into the vein. It is available in tablet form, powder form, liquid concentrate and solution form. Most commonly it is sold under brand names like Zydusic®, Xeljanz® and Seropure®. However, there are many generic versions of serrap available too. There are two forms of serrap: Serapeptidase (serRAPE) and Serratuspase (serRAps).

Uses of Serrap

There are many medical conditions that can be treated using serrap. Some of these diseases are listed below.

Infectious Diseases

Serrap is used to treat a variety of infectious diseases. It can be used to fight off certain types of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that cause various diseases. This includes conditions like HIV/AIDS, cancer, malaria and many others.

Metabolic Diseases

There are several metabolic diseases that can be treated with serrap. These include conditions like cystic fibrosis and sickle cell anemia.

Degenerative Diseases

There are several degenerative diseases that can be treated using serrap. This includes conditions like heart disease, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.

Gastrointestinal Diseases

One of the main problems with serrap is the risk of internal bleeding. While this problem can be very serious, if it is diagnosed quickly the patient can be treated and the damage can be limited. There are many other gastrointestinal diseases that can be treated using serrap.


Serrap has been found to be very effective against many types of cancer. It works by attacking the cancer cells without damaging the healthy cells around it. There is also some evidence that shows that serrap can be used preventively to stop the growth of cancer cells. However, much more testing is required before this can be considered reliable treatment option for cancer.

Enlarged Prostate

This condition is caused due to the increase in size of the prostate. While there is no known cause for this condition, it can lead to several problems including difficulty in urination and increased need to urinate. However, this condition usually doesn’t have any symptoms and it often goes undetected until it is too late. Most men over the age of 50 have enlarged prostates although only a small percentage experience symptoms of the condition. The only way to determine if you have an enlarged prostate is through checking your prostate-specific antigen levels in your blood.

If the levels are normal then you do not have an enlarged prostate.

There are two different types of treatment for this condition: Surgery and Serrap. Surgery is more effective and can help reduce the size of the prostate and reduce the symptoms of the condition. However, it also has more risks including impotency and incontinence. In some cases the cancer will return even if the prostate has been removed entirely. As a result, many men choose to undergo serrap treatment instead.

Serrap treatment involves taking a course of serrap tablets. These are taken over an 8 to 12 week period. During this time the patient will experience a number of side-effects as the condition worsens before getting better once the treatment is over. The best results are achieved when the treatment is done at an earlier age. If the condition is detected in its early stages, regular serrap treatment can prevent the symptoms from becoming severe.

If the condition is left untreated, it will become inoperable after a certain period of time, at which point surgery becomes the only option.

Cognitive Disorders

Serrap has been found to be an effective treatment for many types of cognitive disorders. Alzheimer’s disease is a common disorder where the patient experiences a decline in the brain function over time. There is no known cause for this condition and there is no known treatment. Drugs like serrap can help slow the rate of decline but cannot cure the condition. Regular treatment can also improve the cognition of patients with other types of cognitive disorders such as dementia and cerebral venous insufficiency.

One of the major problems with serrap treatment is that there are many types of side-effects. All patients experience vomiting and diarrhea. Other symptoms include rashes, headaches, blindness, coughing of blood, nightmares and hemorrhaging of the gums. These side-effects are more prominent in the elderly, children and people with a weak constitution.

Due to the nature of these side-effects, the maximum dosage for an adult is limited by law. However, it can be increased for patients who are suffering from particularly aggressive conditions such as brain tumors. If the patient is a child under the age of 15, the maximum dosage is further reduced. Elderly patients (over 65) are exempt from these dosage restrictions however their response to the drug is generally weaker due to their age and decline in physical strength.

As a result, many patients do not experience a complete recovery. Most will only see a slow down in the rate of decline. However, the improvement is great enough that most are happy to have found a treatment that improves their quality of life in some small way.

While there is no shortage of people willing to use the drug, the limited supply of the drug is carefully regulated by the government. In order to get access to the drug, you must first see your family doctor who will send your details and medical records to the government assessment board. If they determine that you qualify for the treatment, your details will be entered into a database so that the government can keep track of how much of the drug is being used. You will then be issued with a medical card which lists all your personal information as well as the details of your condition and the dosage of the drug that has been prescribed to you. This card must be presented to your pharmacist before you can collect your weekly dose.

The government has found that the best way to distribute the drug is to give out vouchers which can be exchanged for a weekly supply of the drug. Each voucher is good for one dose and cannot be exchanged for cash. The value of the voucher depends on your personal circumstances but its worth about as much as a casual laborers pay cheque. This helps to ensure that everyone has access to the drug, rich and poor alike. However, the rich are more likely to be able to afford better treatment for conditions listed in the exclusion list so they tend to live longer than the average citizen.

The cost of running the program is partly met by taxes but it mainly falls on the pharmaceutical industry who are granted a limited monopoly on drugs used to treat the qualifying conditions. In order to receive your weekly dose, you must visit your local pharmacist and present your medical card and voucher each week.

As a result of these restrictions, the black market for the drug quickly emerged. Since the drug is not dangerous itself but is needed to treat a wide range of conditions, patients are willing to go to any length to get it. This has provided a source of income for a great many people who are willing to buy the drug at a low price from patients and then sell it on at a high price, making a large profit in the process.
