Silk production in China

This video shows how silk production is carried out in China, starting with the eggs of the silkworm which produce the silk when they build their cocoon.  The inside of the cocoon is very hard, and the enzyme serrapeptase is used by the emerging moth to burn a hole in it to emerge.

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.
