Serrapeptase can help to decrease inflammation and mucus in the body.

Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme, which means that it chops up or digests protein. Serrapeptase is technically called Serratio Peptidase. Serrapeptase is a natural chemical taken from the silkworm. It is produced by bacteria in the gut of silkworms and is used to digest their cocoons. However, when this enzyme is isolated and coated in the form of a tablet, it can act as an anti-inflammatory, similar to aspirin, ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
