Have you heard of nattokinase—or are you familiar with natto? The two are related‚ but not identical. Natto is a food made from fermented soybeans that’s commonly eaten in Japan; it has a cheese-like texture. Although it’s been associated with helping to remedy vascular and heart disease‚ it’s definitely an acquired taste.
Fortunately‚ the enzyme that has those positive effects‚ nattokinase‚ can be extracted and put in a capsule more appealing to most palates. Nattokinase is an enzyme that supports healthy blood circulation and has anti-clotting properties. In some cases‚ nattokinase has been shown to be far more effective in disintegrating blood clots than plasmin. This enzyme also supports normal blood pressure.
Normally‚ nattokinase contains vitamin K-2‚ which promotes blood clots at the same time and cancels out nattokinase’s preventative effects. While your body’s ability to clot is necessary‚ too much clotting may cause blockages in your blood vessels; your heart would have to work harder as a result‚ leaving you susceptible to heart attacks and strokes. According to the Centers for Disease Control‚ Americans are at extremely high risk of death from both of these conditions.
Nattokinase NSK-SD contains purified nattokinase‚ which is extracted through a patented process. It’s manufactured with a specialized‚ non-GMO strain of soybeans known as Bacillus subtilis natto.
Nattokinase NSK-SD was the first supplement of this kind introduced into the U.S. market‚ and its authenticity has been certified by regulatory bodies such as the JNKA (Japan Nattokinase Association) and JHFA (Japan Health and Nutrition Food Authorization). All other nattokinase supplements currently available are based on the standards established by this product. Every single batch is tested to make sure that it’s potent and safe.
This bottle is the most cost-effective and convenient way to get your vegetarian nattokinase: at the recommended dosage of one to two times daily‚ it should last you from three to six months!
