Nattokinase 100 mg - 120 Vcaps
  • Promotes Circulatory Health
  • High Potency
  • 2,000 FU's of Activity
  • Vegetarian Formula

Nattokinase is an enzyme isolated from Natto, a traditional Japanese fermented soy food.  Natto has been consumed safely for thousands of years for its numerous health benefits.  More recently, both clinical and non-clinical studies have demonstrated that Nattokinase supports heart health and promotes healthy circulation.  Each serving of NOW Nattokinase provides 2000 FU (Fibrinolytic Units) to help maintain already healthy levels of blood clotting factors within a healthy range.

Nattokinase is a powerful proteolytic enzyme that has fibrinolytic health benefits. It is best known for its astounding fibrinolytic (anti-clotting) capacities. Perhaps its most supported use is in the area of cardiovascular health, where it helps to rejuvenate healthy fibrin metabolism and reduce blood clotting, thus making it an extremely powerful, all-natural enzymatic support which may aid in deterring both heart disease and stroke.

Nattokinase has also been scientifically proven to offer relief from joint swelling.  Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. As we age, fibrinogen levels rise (blood clotting potentials), and the enzymes that help dissolve these clots actually lower.

Nattokinase has the distinct ability to breaks down the adhesive substance that makes arterial plaque very sticky. In this way, it supports a preventative and reversing effect on blood clotting and plaque build up in the arteries.

Nattokinase can also break down unwanted wastes such as toxins, cellular debris in the blood, and undigested proteins in the gut. With the distinct ability to breakdown peptide bonds and liberate amino acids, proteolytic enzymes are now being studying by modern science and medicine for their clinical and therapeutic use in the realms of general oncology and overall immune wellness.

This enzyme has been used for over 1000 years and is firmly supported by scientific studies for its many health benefits:

  • It has been shown to stabilize and assist the gastrointestinal tract.

  • May help to normalize blood pressure.

  • Aids in preventing blood clots from forming and aids in the natural dissolution of existing clots.

  • Successfully dissolves fibrin and enhances the system’s natural ability to keep blood vessels clean.

  • Increases the body’s natural production of plasmin as well as other important blood clot dissolving components, such as urokinase.

  • May aid in the prevention of angina, stroke, varicose veins, muscle spasms and pain.

  • May help prevent heart attack and stroke – Studies have shown that Nattokinase helps break up and dissolve blood clots. In fact, research confirms that it holds four times more fibrinolytic activity than plasmin, the body’s natural anti-clotting agent.
