Nattokinase is a powerful enzyme used to support normal blood flow, circulation, and blood pressure levels. Derived from a highly purified extract of the traditional Japanese food natto, nattokinase is an all-natural, highly active enzyme that helps promote normal levels of fibrin. Fibrin is a filamentous protein formed in blood, which can accumulate along blood vessel walls and affect blood flow. Research has shown nattokinase closely resembles plasmin,
the only endogenous enzyme that directly dissolves fibrin. It is thought to increase the body’s production of plasmin. Nattokinase has been shown to support activation of many of the body’s 3,000 endogenous enzymes. In addition, while many of the agents involved in promoting healthy blood flow and coagulation either have limitations, and or serious side effects, this formulation of Nattokinase has a potent support activity that lasts for an 8-12 hour period and is safe for long-term use. Each capsule of Nattokinase contains 50 mg of nattokinase.
Maintaining healthy blood circulation and balanced coagulation is a key part of supporting cardiovascular health. Fibrinolytic enzymes, such as plasmin, produced in the endothelial cells are responsible for ensuring proper blood flow. However, production of these enzymes decreases with age, which can result in increased fibrin levels.1 but in vitro studies have highlighted that it triggers the release of substances that lead to production of other important
enzymes, like plasmin, which help regulate fibrin formation. Nattokinase also inhibits a key enzyme which causes arterial dilation to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels,
and can generate tissue plasminogen activators helping to promote blood flow.2,3 Because it is a highly purified extract derived from soybeans, supplementing nattokinase differs from consuming soybeans in that nattokinase escapes the typical breakdown by digestive enzymes, and is absorbed and taken into the body directly from the small intestine to exert
its effects in the plasma.
