    I keep reading that Serapeptase CAUSES pneumonia. So how would this be beneficial in treating fibrosis?

      Hi Diana, can you point me to the literature that you are referring to? We have not seen any data to show that.

    I have read this on multiple sites, but here is one. Scroll down to side effects. Google Serapeptase; pneumonia and you will find more info on it. I really hope that it’s not true as it sounds like many hav had positive results. Problem is, I can’t find a doctor or naturpath who knows anything about it to guide me.

    Can someone explain to my why it is that I only hear about people using serrapeptase alone or with nattokinase for fibrosis, when I read that nattokinase also reduces scarring? Is it not as potent as serrapeptase? Trying to avoid serrapeptase after hearing about all the people having stomach issues with it..even if they avoid food. Thank you!
