The active ingredient for Nattokinase was extracted from Natural highest sources of Vitamin K2.

A traditional Japanese food "Natto" is a food made from soybeans fermented by bacteria called Bacillus Subtilis, and has been eaten since about 1,200 years ago. Enzymes produced through the fermentation include protease and Dr. Oshima at Hokkaido Imperial University reported its purification and characteristics. Since then, it was investigated as a serine protease, and, in 1980s, the enzyme that degrades fibrin proteins (a cause of thrombi) was named as "Nattokinase".

What is Natto?

A highly nutritional vegetarian food

  • A traditional Japanese food made by fermenting soybeans.
  • Contains abundance of vegetable proteins.
  • Has a very strong pungent flavour and is a very slimy paste.
  • Salty in flavour.
  • Has a blue cheese type of odour.
  • Usually eaten with rice.

But what the Japanese find appealing in their food choices are often seen as unappealing to Westerners, and therefore is better obtained in the form of supplements.

What is Nattokinase?
  • A highly purified enzyme which is produced by the fermentation process of the soybeans.
  • A powerful proteolytic enzyme that has fibrinolytic health benefits.
  • Nattokinase is found in the sticky part of Natto.

Nattokinase was discovered in Japan by research scientist Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi who was looking for a natural remedy for dissolving blood clots related to heart attacks and stroke.

What are the functions of Nattokinase
  • Best known for its amazing fibrinolytic (anti-clotting) capabilities.
  • Supports the most in the area of cardiovascular health.
  • Assist in rejuvenating healthy fibrin metabolism.
  • Blood thinning agent-reduces blood clotting.
  • An extremely powerful, all-natural enzymatic support.
  • May help in discouraging both heart disease and stroke.
  • Also been scientifically proven to propose relief from joint swelling.

As many of us know, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. As we age, fibrinogen levels increases (blood clotting potentials), and the enzymes that help dissolve these clots actually decrease.

According to a report from the U.S. Centres for Disease Control, more than 700,000 people have a stroke every year. Many clinical studies also suggest that nattokinase may help prevent deep vein thrombus formation.

What are the benefits of Nattokinase? (Benefitted by patients eating nattokinase)
  • Prevent medical conditions such as angina, stroke and cardiovascular disease.
  • Treats atherosclerosis, deep vein thrombosis and peripheral vascular disease.
  • People with hemorrhoids, varicose veins and hypertension have also tried to improve their health with natto.
  • Treats pain, chronic fatigue syndrome and muscle spasms.
  • Treats fibromyalgia, endometriosis and uterine fibroids.
Recommended Dosage of Nattokinase

Before taking Nattokinase, it is essential to consult your physician if you are taking any blood-thinners, or are under the care of a physician for any bleeding disorders. Pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers are also advised not to use products that contain nattokinase until they have discussed their use with a physician.

In some cases, people who are considering the use of natto may benefit from discussing the product with a doctor. Physicians often provide general guidance to their patients about the safe consumption of such foods.

The exact dose of nattokinase needed depends on many factors, such as a person's age, reasons for taking it, and the quality of the supplement being consumed.

To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to start with the smallest effective dose and then increase it if no undesirable symptoms appear.
