All products by AST Enzymes are manufactured in the USA, that follows GMP guidelines.

How Serracor-NK Works: Understanding Fibrin

Serracor-NK works by supporting healthy fibrin levels in the circulatory system.*

Fibrin is a protein that the body produces when healing. The protein precursor fibrinogen is converted into fibrin, which forms a layer of connective tissue inside the blood vessel. The fibrin strands assemble into a net-like structure over an affected vessel and harden, forming a “patch” to prevent further damage.  

While fibrin is meant to have a protective function in the body, too much fibrin buildup can cause problems.

Serracor-NK is a powerful blend of antioxidant herbs, CoEnzyme q10 and magnesium with enteric-coated serrapeptase and nattokinase. Serrapeptase and nattokinase are two systemic enzymes studied for their fibrinolytic properties.*

This complete array of proteolytic enzymes, herbs, and minerals supports healthy circulatory and respiratory systems and normal fibrin metabolism.*

How Enteric Coating Makes Serracor-NK Uniquely Effective

The enteric-coated serrapeptase and nattokinase inside make Serracor-NK a unique blend. Most serrapeptase brands on the market are not enteric coated, which means they can lose a significant portion of their effectiveness in the acidic environment of the stomach. The enteric coating of our blend allows these sensitive enzymes to survive the acidic conditions of the stomach, thus allowing them to pass into the circulatory system and maintain high activity levels.

How to Take Serracor-NK

Take on an empty stomach (30-60 minutes before or 2 hours after meals).

  • Days 1-5: Take 1 capsule, 3 times a day.
  • Days 6-11: Take 2 capsules, 3 times a day.
  • Day 12+:  Take the Therapeutic Dose of 3 capsules, 3 times a day.

AST Enzymes recently learned of false claims, misstatements and misrepresentations by one of our competitors. These claims call into question the business practices of Specialty Enzymes and Biotechnologies and the quality of Serracor-NK.

Specialty Enzymes & Biotechnologies (SEB) is a major international manufacturer of enzymes for more than 20 industries, including the nutraceutical industry. Vic Rathi, president and founder of SEB, formulated the original Neprinol® for Arthur Andrew Medical (AAM), an enzyme marketing company. The proprietary formula remains the intellectual property of SEB; AAM was not privy to the formula.

SEBkinase® is a blend of enteric-coated nattokinase and serrapeptase, which was first introduced in commerce by SEB in 2002. Two years later, in 2004, SEB was contracted to formulate and make finished products, not raw material, for AAM and SEBkinase became an integral part of the original formula of Neprinol until 2008. During the duration of this contract:

  • SEB received no complaints, verbal or in writing, at any point about the quality and efficacy of Neprinol.
  • SEB did not provide any Neprinol product to AAM in 2009, so any complaints or refunds made thereafter were not for its products. A major distributor who worked with AAM at the time says they did not receive any complaints nor requests for refunds, and there was no apology issued to customers.
  • A review of the batches of Neprinol sold during that time shows activity levels were in accordance with AAM’s requests. In addition, the weight of the powder inside the capsules was within the accepted range of label claims and GMP Standards.
  • Initial production and sale of Serracor-NK was the result of feedback from previous Neprinol customers who contacted SEB as the manufacturer, requesting the original SEBkinase formula.

The quality of SEB products and services are evident in the fact that it has been in business for more than 50 years and continues to experience tremendous growth. In fact, in 2010 SEB expanded its manufacturing facilities, adding a new 25,000 square foot building to meet growing manufacturing demands. Thousands of satisfied customers can attest to the quality and efficacy of our products, and the integrity of our business practices.

Specialty Enzymes & Probiotics is an innovator, creating and manufacturing several of the best-selling enzyme supplements on the market today.

Please feel free to call us with questions.

Serracor-NK SEBkinase Formula Remains Unchanged

Specialty Enzymes did not change the formula for SEBkinase or the original formula for Neprinol, which is now available from AST Enzymes as Serracor-NK. Claims that we allegedly lowered the activity of SEBkinase in the original Neprinol formula are untrue. Our SEBkinase blend is unchanged since its introduction. The SEBkinase in Serracor-NK is the same as the SEBkinase in the original formulation of Neprinol. Nothing has changed but the name.

Enteric Coated Serrapeptase and Nattokinase

All enzymes have a pH range.  At the extremes of this range, whether acid or alkaline, systemic enzymes will denature (become irreversibly inactive). While it is true that most fungal and plant source systemic enzymes exhibit a fairly broad pH range, some bacterial sourced systemic enzymes are less tolerant of low pH. Because we are the actual manufacturer of our enzymes, we test them for both pH and temperature stability.  Based on the results of these kinetic studies, we have repeatedly demonstrated that serrapeptase and nattokinase are much less tolerant of a low pH and will begin to lose activity in acidic conditions consistent with the stomach.  Therefore, for maximum effectiveness, serrapeptase and nattokinase are best when enterically coated.

When we design a systemic enzyme blend for human consumption, we have to ensure that it will tolerate the pH variables of our gastrointestinal system. We have successfully done this with our systemic enzyme products, including Peptizyme SP (enteric coated serrapeptase), NattoSEB (enteric coated nattokinase) and SEBKinase (a blend of Peptizyme and NattoSEB).  As a result of our experience and expertise, our entire line of enteric-coated enzymes are able to reach the small intestine with higher activity for full systemic enzyme therapy.

Make an Informed Choice

There are several systemic enzyme products on the market today. In this case, there are two alternatives: an enzyme product from an expert manufacturer or one from a marketing company. You deserve the highest quality and most effective enzyme products available. We encourage you to make an informed choice.

*AST Enzymes uses MAAC as enteric coating

What is enteric coating, and why is it needed?

Enteric coating is a layer of protective coating for dietary supplements that is meant to allow the supplement to bypass digestion by the stomach and be absorbed in the small intestine. Systemic enzymes are proteins, so their functional structures are denatured (or destroyed) in conditions of extreme pH and temperature. Without enteric coating, enzymes would be rendered useless long before they reach the bloodstream, where their carry out their beneficial effects.

What’s enteric coating made of?

At AST Enzymes, we use Methacrylic Acid Copolymer (MAAC) for our enteric coating. Methacrylic Acid Copolymer (MAAC) is not a phthalate. According to independent studies, MAAC is the most gastro-resistant when compared to other commonly used enteric coating agents such as Cellulose Acetate Phthalate (CAP) and Hydroxypropyl Methycellulose Phthalate (HPMCP). This means that MAAC can most effectively withstand the acidity of the stomach, allowing its contents to be released in the small intestine and absorbed successfully.

Don’t let the name scare you. MAAC is a food-grade compound that has been in use as enteric coating in the pharmaceutical industry for over 50 years with no reported side effects. In fact, the European Food Safety Authority – an organization that conducted studies which led to the ban of 6 types of phthalates in personal care products in Europe in 2004 – has deemed MAAC safe for use as coating agent in food supplements.

Not only is MAAC listed as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also conducted various studies and found sufficient information to reasonably conclude that the current use pattern of MAAC will not adversely affect public health or the environment.

FAQ

What is systemic enzyme therapy?

Systemic enzyme therapy refers to the therapeutic use of natural enzymes to produce a desired effect. Systemic enzymes are absorbed from the small intestine where they enter the bloodstream and execute their effects on the entire body as a system.

What is a systemic proteolytic enzyme?

Proteolytic enzymes break down proteins into their building-blocks, which are called amino acids. Systemic proteolytic enzymes are responsible for breaking down accumulated protein and waste substances found in the circulatory system and connective tissue.  Regular systemic proteolytic enzyme use can promote circulation and support flushing out these waste products.

 What is fibrin?

Fibrin is a protein-based substance that is needed to help clot one’s blood, playing a substantial role in immune response and healing. When the body responds to injury or chronic inflammation, fibrin is recruited to the damaged area to form scar tissue. Although the body is equipped with plasmin, a naturally occurring enzyme responsible for breaking down excess fibrin, some people are at a disadvantage – as aging occurs, plasmin levels progressively decrease.

Why is it important to take Serracor-NK on an empty stomach?

Since most absorption occurs in the small intestine, the systemic enzymes must bypass the stomach to gain access there. If the enzymes are taken with food, they will likely begin working to break down your food within the stomach, rather than passing through to the small intestine. Taking systemic enzymes like Serracor-NK with food will compromise their absorption, as well as their effectiveness.

Does Serracor-NK have an enteric coating?

Yes, the serrapeptase and nattokinase in Serracor-NK are enterically coated. While similar systemic enzymes may have the same active ingredients, most do not utilize enteric coating. The purpose of enteric coating is to protect the enzyme from the acidic environment of the stomach. When enzymes are enterically coated, their high activity levels are preserved until theyreach the small intestine, where absorption into the bloodstream takes place. While the enteric coating can withstand the acidic environment of the stomach, the alkaline environment of the small intestine will disintegrate the enteric coating, allowing the enzyme to become active within the bloodstream.

Do you use phthalates in your enteric coating?

No, our enteric coating does not use or contain phthalates. At AST Enzymes, we use Methacrylic Acid Copolymer (MAAC) for our enteric coating. Compared to other commonly used enteric coating agents such as Cellulose Acetate Phthalate (CAP) and Hydroxypropyl Methycellulose Phthalate (HPMCP), MAAC is the most gastro-resistant and does not carry the same risks. Additionally, MAAC is considered GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA and is approved for use by the European Food Safety Authority.

How long should I take Serracor-NK before feeling results?

The length of time to experience the benefits of systemic enzymes varies by individual. Some people notice a difference within days. For others, it’s a week or 10 days. For long-term benefits, it’s important to take systemic enzymes consistently over several months. New systemic enzyme users should start off slow, with one capsule, three times daily. After three to four days of proven tolerance, the dose can be increased to a 2 capsules, 3 times per day.  Some consumers find their ideal dose between 9-12 capsules per day, while others only need 3-6. There are several factors that may affect required dosage, including:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Age
  • Tolerance
  • Time of administration (better absorbed on an empty stomach)
  • Adherence to regimen
  • Nutritional state

What if I miss a dose?

Regular, consistent use of systemic enzymes will provide the best results, however missed doses of systemic enzymes do not have serious repercussions. Although symptoms alleviated by systemic enzyme therapy may resurface, getting back on track by remembering to take your next dose will suffice. There is also the option of incorporating another dose during the day. There is no need to “double up” on one dose. Also remember, systemic enzymes are best absorbed on an empty stomach.

Does Serracor-NK have any side effects?

The use of Serracor-NK has not been shown to exhibit detrimental effects, long term or short term. Minor side effects may vary. Gastrointestinal disturbances have been reported by a small percentage of new users, but once the dosage is adjusted, tolerance is maintained. Minor allergic reactions, like reddening of the skin, are also rare occurrences, and can be seen with extremely high doses. There are no known interactions with prescription or over the counter drugs while using systemic enzyme therapy. However, it is recommended that you consult with your physician about starting systemic enzymes, particularly if you are on blood-thinning medications, or are pregnant or nursing.

Can I take Serracor-NK with other systemic enzymes?

Systemic enzymes may be taken together, yielding desirable results, as long as they are taken on an empty stomach. In fact, it is often recommended that systemic enzymes be combined. Products like Serracor-NK and Peptizyme-SP often have synergistic effects when taken together. This means that the separate products work together to produce advantageous results. By combining and enhancing the activity of the enzymes, their effects on supporting the body are more attainable.

Can I take Serracor-NK with digestive enzymes?

Although digestive and systemic enzymes are not contraindicated in terms of ingredients, they cannot be taken at the same time. The purpose of digestive enzymes is to aid in digestion of specific foods, so taking them with food is an obvious recommendation. Because systemic enzymes require an empty stomach for maximum absorption, they must be taken separately from digestive enzymes. There are no adverse interactions between systemic and digestive enzymes, but they serve different purposes and thus should be taken as directed for best results.

    I’ve been using Serracor-NK for about 7 years now. The CoQ10 is great for energy and mental acuity! I’m pretty sure it’s the effect of the fibrin metabolism that supports my vision. I am 64 and still don’t wear glasses, for reading or otherwise. The magnesium support has a nice calming effect on the nerves, I find. I may get a cold every 5-6 years, but that’s it. I found out the hard way, by forgetting to pack my Serracor-NK for a trip, exactly what benefits I’m getting from this enzyme supplement. And I don’t want to be without it again! Thank you! It’s healthy in so many ways.
