Peyronies Disease Pain
Now we have serrapeptase being tried for straightening a bent penis (or even a curved one) caused by Peyronies Disease.
It's never going to happen. And, according to all the clinical trials, it never has happened.
Although this is a wonderful miraculous product from Mother Nature, enzyme therapy is a false hope for straightening a bent penis.
What Is It?
What Does It Do?
Serrapeptase is a
(an enzyme that disolves and digests proteins).
It is a substance originally discovered in the intestine of the silkworm in Japan. The worm uses this enzyme to dissolve it's
(hard protective covering) after it is finished hibernating.
The secretion of this enzyme, at the end of hibernation, allows the emerging moth to dissolve a portion of its cocoon. Then the moth is free to escape.
This enzyme was originally derived from the silkworm intestine. It is now derived from a fermentation process from the
Serratia E-15 in a laboratory.
This enzyme has been used in Asia and Europe as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever for thirty years.
It offer an alternative to salicylates (such as aspirin), ibuprofen, and other NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) as well as steroids.
It has a great advantage over the chemical drug anti-inflammatorys. This enzyme does not have the immunosuppressive and other possible dangerous side effects known to accompany anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids.
Clinical use of this enzyme as an anti-inflammatory in Europe and Asia spans over thirty years.
Serrapeptase treatment includes chronic sinusitis, elimination of bronchopulmonary secretions (because this enzyme breaks down protein fibers, it enables the mucous to thin), torn ligaments and sprains, idiopathic edema, and other traumatic injuries, as well as postoperative inflammation.
It has also been used as an arterial blockage treatment in Germany by Dr. Hans Alfred Nieper (1928-1998).
Use in Peyronies Disease
This particular enzyme acts to break down foreign fibrous tissue wherever it is detected in the body - such as in a fibrous plaque in scar tissue.
But, it is not an effective treatment for Peyronies Disease.
There are two basic problems with using proteolytic enzyme therapy for Peyronies Disease treatment:
1) Proteolytic enzymes must be used for a long period of time to dissolve any fibrous plaque. Usually 18 months or more
2) Proteolytic enzymes do not soften the scar tissue. Just the associated fibrous plaque.
In 18 - 24 months about 40% of bent penis conditions caused by Peyronies Disease will resolve by themselves. That means the penis will straighten out again with no kind of outside assistance.
For the other 60%, some type of physical assistance is needed to straighten the bent penis out again.
In all clinical trials, serrapeptase was not effective in straightening any bending erection.
But that only makes sense. This enzyme acts only on the fibrous plaque and inflammation. Not scar tissue. And tough scar tissue is the primary cause of the bent penis.
All this means is that it will take 2 to 3 times longer to get rid of the associated pain than by using
And, this (or any other) enzyme process is never going to get your bent penis straight.
Eliminating The Pain During Erections
What you may not know is that one of the first results you will notice when using correct penis traction program is: The pain from the pulling of penile tissues during erection diminishes rapidly and soon goes away!
The reasons for this is: long before an erection has actually been straightened from traction, the scar and plaque formations are stretched enough to keep the surrounding tissues from being pulled to the point of pain during erection.
With correct traction, you also have none of the possible side effects associated with injectables or oral medications.
If your erectile pain is mild, serrapeptase may be very helpful.
If your pain is intense there are
topical and injectable drugs
available from your physician that may be more helpful for pain relief until you have made your penis straighter.
Is It The Right Product?
Serrapeptase is a good product. From all the research, it appears to be a very good product.
It has been shown to be excellent as a pain reliever and often superior to aspirin, ibuprofen, other NSAIDS, and steroids because it does not have the immunosuppressive and possible gastrointestinal side effects.
Since it is a simple enzyme dietary supplement, it requires no prescription. Millions of doses of this enzyme have been taken over the past 30 years.
Only two cases of an adverse effect were ever reported. PubMed:PMID: 11019569 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
It has been recommended for the pain associated with erection during Peyronies Disease by some practitioners. And it may be helpful in this way until the bent penis has been straightened.
But, Serrapeptase is just not an effective product for straightening a bent penis caused by Peyronies Disease.
The Most Effective Form
The best serrapeptase supplement
I have found comes from Advance Physician Formulas. It contains 20,000 units of Serratiopeptidase (Serrapeptase). That's the highest I've found.
Since this is an enzyme, if you take it with food, it will lose most of it's power digesting proteins in the stomach. So normally these would be taken between meals.
A very nice feature of this brand is that it is
That means it doesn't dissolve until it reaches your intestines. The benefit of this is: you can take it whenever you want (even with food) and you will get much more value out of each tablet. More than twice as much effectiveness for your money.
Is It Worth Using?
If you are seeking temporary pain relief from the Peyronies Disease erectile pain, serrapeptase may be worth a shot. Especially when it doesn't have the side effect possibilities of common pain relievers. Always consult with your physician first.
If you are trying to straighten a curved or bent penis with it, as some advertisers claim you "possibly can", you can forget about it. Serrapeptase will not
straighten a bent penis.
