The Serrapeptase dosage most commonly used in scientific research has been between 10 mg and 30 mg per day, but this suggestion is useless since the enzyme strength or activity is unknown. Unlike vitamins or herbal supplements, the most effective Serrapeptase dosage depends more on the potency of the Serrapeptase enzyme rather than the amount taken. (Click here for more information.)
The best answer regarding what is the best Serrapeptase dosage is completely dependent on the person. One person may get relief from sore joints by taking 300,000 SPU's per day while another person may need 500,000 SPU's per day to get relief. Enzymes work with an individual’s biochemistry and are rarely dependent on that person's weight. A 100 pound woman may need to take more Serrapeptase per day than a 250 pound man. The amount or dosage is different for everyone. Since there are no common side effects it is safe to take an amount of 1,000,000 SPU's per day for pain, inflammation, and the reduction of fluid accumulations.
