Serrapeptase for Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
What is an artery?
Arteries are blood vessels that transport oxygen-rich blood from the heart to various tissues of the body. An artery is a muscular tube that is lined by smooth tissue.
What is atherosclerosis?
Atherosclerosis is a condition characterized by build up of plaque inside the arteries. It is a dangerous disease because it reduces blood flow; it can cause serious cardiovascular complications; it can even cause heart attack.
Causes of atherosclerosis
White blood cells are dispatched by the body’s immune system to clean up LDL cholesterol packets. Macrophage white blood cells and fat accumulate in the arteries causing atherosclerosis.
High blood pressure, smoking, high levels of bad cholesterol and high sugar levels in the blood can trigger atherosclerosis. People with a parent who has atherosclerosis are more likely to develop the condition than others. Exposure to diesel exhaust particles may cause this disease.
Symptoms of atherosclerosis
Atherosclerosis does not cause signs or symptoms until there is severe narrowing or total blockage of an artery. Unfortunately many patients affected by atherosclerosis do not know that they have this disease until there is a medical emergency like stroke or heart attack.
Symptoms of narrowing of coronary arteries are chest pain, squeezing in the chest, a sense of squeezing in arms, shoulders, jaw, neck or back, sleep problems, fatigue, emotional stress, shortness of breath and irregular heartbeat.
Symptoms of narrowing of carotid arteries are weakness, vision problems, paralysis, confusion, speech problems, breathing problems, dizziness, loss of balance and severe headache.
Treatments for atherosclerosis
Once there is a blockage of the artery, it will stay. However, with lifestyle changes and medicines, plaque build up may slow down or even stop. Adherence to a healthy diet and regular exercise lowers the risk of heart attack and stroke, but does not remove plaque.
Medicines for high blood pressure and high cholesterol slow down the progress of the disease; some times they even halt the progression of the disease. Unfortunately these medicines have side effects like diarrhea, constipation, cough, erection issues, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, headache and nausea.
Serrapeptase as a remedy for atherosclerosis
Serrapeptase (also known as serripeptidase and serratiopeptidase) is a protein destroying enzyme that is obtained from bacteria in the digestive system of silkworms. It is found to be effective against atherosclerosis.
One serrapeptase user says, “…I am aware that it’s impossible to ascribe cause and contribution in a single case history. And it’s probable that everything I did, including the years of chelation before the first test, made a contribution to my remarkable (well, I think complete regression in 18 months is remarkable) result. But I strongly suspect that the Big Thing in my program was the Serrapeptase. Certainly the Sears diet, the lysine and the anti-homocysteine measures could be expected to contribute to halting the progress of disease. But I cannot imagine how anything but the Serrapeptase could have so quickly and dramatically removed the atherosclerotic plaques.”
If you are affected by atherosclerosis, do not panic. Just reach out for serrapeptase. It is an over-the-counter remedy.
