Inflammation is a complex biological process in which the body’s white blood cells and chemicals provide protection from infection and foreign substances, such as bacteria, yeast, and viruses and some chemicals. It is a protective attempt by the body to remove the injurious substance and to initiate the healing process for the tissue. As such, inflammation is part of the regenerative process. Without inflammation, wounds and infections would never heal and there would be progressive destruction of tissues. The goal is not to stop inflammation, but to restore normal inflammatory processes.
In some conditions, however, the body’s immune system inappropriately triggers an inflammatory response when there are no foreign substances to fight off. In these autoimmune situations the body’s normally protective immune system causes damage to its own tissues. The ability of the immune system to cause too much inflammation, and actually damage tissue instead of helping it heal, is why the inflammation process must be tightly regulated by the body.
Again, the goal is not to stop inflammation, but to restore normal inflammatory processes. The biological processes of the immune system which maintain the normal inflammatory processes are heavily regulated by cytokines - signaling proteins and glycoproteins involved in cellular communication.

The Effects of Abnormal Inflammation
The five clinical characteristic signs of inflammation are redness (Latin rubor), heat (calor), swelling (tumor), pain (dolor), and loss of function (functio laesa). Excessive or chronic inflammation, also result in increased biomarkers of inflammation, which are also associated with increased morbidity and mortality.
Inflammation & Cytokines
Cytokines such as interferon-gamma (INF-γ), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) and interleukins (IL-2, IL-6, IL-12, IL-4, IL-5, IL-10) are produced de novo in various cells as a direct response to stimulation of the immune system.
Cytokines are signaling proteins and glycoproteins involved in cellular communication. They are produced by a wide variety of cells and are typically subdivided into two categories, Th1 & Th2. A balance between Th1 and Th2 responses is best for optimal health.
Th1 cytokines tend to produce the pro-inflammatory responses involved in antibacterial and antiviral responses. Excessive Th1 responses can lead to uncontrolled tissue damage and may perpetuate autoimmune responses. A relative excess in Th1 is observed in acute inflammation.
Th2 cytokines tend to produce anti-inflammatory responses and can counteract the Th1 mediated microbicidal actions. Excessive Th2 responses are associated with allergies and atopy (asthma, eczema, allergic rhinitis & allergic conjunctivitis). A relative excess in Th2 is observed in chronic inflammation.
Common Cytokine Imbalances
Th1/Th2 cytokine imbalance with a relative excess of Th1. This type of imbalance is often seen in acute inflammation. The uncontrolled and excessive Th1 cytokines may often destroy tissues throughout the body and precipitate autoimmune disease in susceptible individuals.
Th1/Th2 cytokine imbalance with a relative excess of Th2. This type of imbalance is often seen in chronic inflammation. An excess of Th2 cytokines may overly suppress microbicidal actions of Th1 cytokines. Allergies may result from excessive Th2 activity, and can often result in atopic conditions in susceptible individuals.
Systemic Enzyme Therapy and Serracor-NK
Systemic Enzyme Support
Systemic Enzyme Support (SES) that uses clinically validated formulations of enzymes from both plants and animals is able to influence immunity in such a fashion as to reduce pain, swelling, inflammation, edema and lymphedema, and increase fibrinolysis, and the clearance of harmful immune complexes that are a result of antibody reactions. SES provides enzymes which can be utilized to assist the body’s various regulatory and communications systems and supports the function of tissues at a cellular level. SES has application for degenerative conditions, immune conditions, and as an adjuvant to improve management of infectious conditions.
Systemic Enzyme Support is able to improve the management of conditions with auto-aggressive components by aiding endogenous decomposition and elimination of condition-associated circulating immune complexes that are typically noted in conditions that adversely affect joint health, circulatory health, skin health, liver health, glucose health and heart health.1
What is Serracor-NK?
SERRACOR-NK is formulated by the #1 enzyme supplier to the world Specialty Enzymes. They cultivate their own enzymes in a 200 million dollar enzyme manufacturing facility. Once the enzymes pass the many stringent testing qualifications they are then bio fused together into formulations by a team of enzyme researchers and doctors to have the highest enzymatic effect within the body for that specific formulation. Specialty Enzymes has been formulating enzymes formulations for over 75 years and has been the leader in not only the highest quality enzymes but many of the effective enzyme formulations you seen on the market to date. SERRACOR-NK is Specialty Enzymes newest formulation SEBkinase a fibrin dissolving systemic enzyme blend that will effectively eliminate fibrosis and C-reactive protein within the body. In fact this same exact enzyme formulation has been available for the last 5 years.
How do the two main ingredients in Serracor-NK work?
SERRACOR-NK also contains NattoSEB [Nattokinase], also Specialty Enzymes own trademarked and formulated Nattokinase. NattoSEB recently a new enzyme with potent fibrinolytic activity that rivals pharmaceutical agent has been discovered and shows great potential in providing support for hyper coagulative states. This all-natural enzyme, NattoSEB , is derived from fermented soy and the bacteria Bacillus Natto. Already, backed by research, NattoSEB shows promise in supporting areas such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, angina, venous stasis, thrombosis, emboli, atherosclerosis, fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue, claudicating, retinal pathology, hemorrhoid, varicose veins, soft tissue rheumatisms, muscle spasm, poor healing, chronic inflammation and pain, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, tissue oxygen deprivation, infertility, and other gynecology conditions (e.g. endometriosis, uterine fibroids).
Peptizyme SP is formulated for maximum fibrinolytic activity. Fibrin is a tough protein arranged in long fibrous chains. It is formed from fibrinogen, a soluble protein that is produced by the liver and found in blood plasma. Peptizyme SP supports normal fibrin metabolism, thus reducing viscosity and aiding normal blood flow. Fibrin tends to form circulating complexes that build a wall of fibrin around areas of inflammation, creating a barrier for the uptake of healing nutrients. In addition Peptizyme SP supports healthy inflammatory response by reducing metabolic inflammation, usually an asymptomatic inflammatory process in response to stress, improper nutrition and other environmental insults. There is also evidence of inhibition of C-Reactive Protein, a marker for inflammation that has been linked to cardiovascular health.
Both Peptizyme SP (serrapeptase) and NattoSEB are enterically coated and are formulated to an exact milligram for optimal performance in this blend. Digestive enzymes (DigeSEB) are also used in the Serracor-NK formula, there purpose is to aid in the enhancement of the formula and should not be taken strictly as a digestive supplement. The last ingredient in SERRACOR-NK is Co-Q10 this is in the formula not only as a coenzyme, but to complement the strong cardiovascular benefits of SERRACOR-NK.
