Serrapeptase: is a proteolytic (protein-breaking) enzyme obtained from the digestive system of silkworms. The function of this enzyme is to digest the fibrin that protects the Borrelia bacteria. Serrapeptase helps to break down the microbial biofilm. The breakdown of fibrin, which protects the bacteria, makes the cells of the immune system effective in attacking and combating pathogenic microorganisms. Serapeptase improves oxygen transport to tissues by breaking down fibrin adhering to the capillary walls. As a result, in tissues where anaerobic conditions prevailed, i.e. favorable for the growth of bacteria, the environment is changed to aerobic conditions unfavorable for the survival of bacteria.
Sparga Sulfur Detox: supports the removal of sulfoantibiotics and other sulfonamide-based drugs from the body that block the body's sulfate pathways and the way of toxin conjugation through glutathione.
