I did alot of reading on serrapeptase indicating that it could effectively digest candida biofilm before I started supplementing. I also liked that it was indicated for reduction of allergies and inflammation. I've had severe fall mold allergies for as long as I could remember, but from the moment I started taking serrapeptase in september of 2010, my allergies have been gone. Not a single sinus headache or pain in a part of the year when Im usually pumping myself with benadryl and wanting to die. I honestly couldnt believe how effective it is for allergies.
Anyway, sorry to get off topic a little. Yes, serrapeptase is a fibrinolytic enzyme (which could have implications for helping with problems like cancer also). Other biofilm busting enzymes like nattokinase and lumbrokinase are on my list to try (as well as mixtures like interfase), if the serrapeptase does not effectively clear my candida completely. But judging from my progress the last 4 months, I really think it's going to do the job (along with diet, vco and probiotics).
Not to be too gross, but since starting the serra I have noticed what I believe to be the dissolved biofilm showing up in my stool. It appears as a greasy film that spreads across the surface of the water. The film is proportional to the amount of serra I ingest and the severity of the resulting herx.
Btw, from my experience, enteric coating is not needed for serrapeptase to work, contrary to what some vendor websites report. I noticed effectiveness with non-encapsulated powder in doses as low as 10,000 serratio units. I have slowly increased my dose to about 30,000 units per day over the last 4 months, and it is clearly working for me without enteric coating. Enteric coatings are usually HPMCP, which is a toxic pthalate and not something anyone should ingest daily anyway.
