Serrapeptase Dose from Clinical Studies and Commercial Products

Dental pain

In this study, the researcher found that taking 5 mg of serrapeptase for treating dental pain after tooth extraction was significantly more effective in reducing pain and swelling compared to taking a placebo (sugar pill).

Night time leg cramps

In this study, the subjects took 10 mg three times daily. This dose was effective for treating inflammation of veins in 65% of the volunteers.

Combination pain relief medications

A product called ParFlex contains 500 mg acetaminophen, 100 mg aceclofenac and 15 mg serratiopeptidase. It is used in India for the control of pain. Taking 2 tabs four times daily would give a daily dose of 120 mg of serrapeptase.

Maximum recommended serrapeptase dosage?

Dr. Sahelian and Dr. Hans Nieper, proponents of the health benefits of Serrapeptase, recommend limiting a daily dosage to one pill, or 200 mg daily (equivalent to 20,000 IU).

Buy enteric-coated tablets or capsules if possible as they are able to pass through the stomach intact. (Serrapeptase is destroyed by the acid found in the stomach.) The special coating only dissolves in the alkaline environment of the intestine, releasing the digestive enzyme.

The bottom line?

Most clinical studies seem to use 30 mg daily for treating various inflammatory conditions. Higher doses (but no higher than 200 mg) would be safe for most people.

Always consult a healthcare professional before taking serrapeptase.
