Serrapeptase reduces cheek swelling and pain after surgical extraction.


In a 2008 study in the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, researchers looked at the ability of serrapeptase to reduce postoperative swelling and pain following surgical removal of the third molar.

After surgery, patients received either serrapeptase OR a placebo AND 1000mg paracetamol.

The researchers found that there was significant reduction in cheek swelling and pain in the serrapeptase treated group after 2, 3 and 7 days after the surgery.

About Andy

I suffered a serious neck injury when I was about 19 years old. That problem didn’t affect me until I was in my 40s, but I then suffered two prolapsed discs in my neck and problems with my right arm and hand. Serrapeptase was recommended by my chiropractor to try to break up the scar tissue around the vertebrae that were causing me the problems. It seemed to help me with my problem, so created this site to help inform people what serrapeptase is, what it can do and just as importantly, what it cannot do. I hope you find the information useful.
