Have you heard of nattokinase or natto? Natto is a food made from fermented soybeans that’s commonly eaten in Japan; it has a cheese-like texture that’s an acquired taste for many. However‚ it’s worth trying‚ because it’s been associated with helping to remedy vascular and heart disease.
The good news is the enzyme that provides those positive effects‚ nattokinase‚ can be extracted and put in a capsule. Nattokinase is an enzyme that has anti-clotting properties and supports healthy circulation of the blood. In some cases‚ nattokinase has been shown to be far more effective in disintegrating blood clots than plasmin—the latter of which occurs naturally in your body. This enzyme also helps you maintain normal blood pressure levels.
Nattokinase contains vitamin K-2‚ which promotes blood clotting. Unfortunately‚ this can cancel out the positive effects of nattokinase. While your body needs to have the ability to clot‚ too much clotting may cause blockages in your blood vessels. This results in your heart having to work harder to pump blood‚ leaving you susceptible to heart attacks and strokes. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control have stated that those are the most common causes of death in this nation.
Unlike most other supplements‚ Nattokinase NSK-SD contains purified nattokinase extracted through a patented process. It’s manufactured with a specialized‚ non-genetically modified strain of soybeans.
Nattokinase NSK-SD was the first supplement of this kind introduced into the U.S. market‚ and its authenticity has been certified by several Japanese regulatory bodies. The potency and safety of each batch is rigorously tested before being sold.
This bottle of 60 vegetarian softgels is ideal if you’re just getting started with nattokinase; it should last for about one to two months at the recommended dosage. To save money and time by buying in bulk‚ consider our 180-softgel size.
