What is Doctor's Best Nattokinase?
Nattokinase is an enzyme taken from "natto", a traditional cheese-like food that's been enjoyed in Japanese cuisine for over 1000 years. Natto is made from fermenting soybeans with a bacterium called Bacillus subtills. Nattokinase is a result of the bacteria acting on the soybeans.
For hundreds of years Natto has been used as a folk remedy for cardiovascular disease, but it was Japanese researcher Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi that first discovered the real potential of Nattokinase. Nattokinase has natural thrombolytic properties that could support the body in dissolving blood clots associated with heart attacks and strokes. The enzyme works to degrade fibrin proteins, preventing thrombus formation and subsequent blood clotting. In fact Nattokinase has been shown in research to hold four times more fibrinolytic activity than the body's naturally produced anti-clotting agent.
Getting nattokinase into your diet regularly could be a challenge unless you can prepare a natto infused dish or have access to Japanese cuisine. Supplementation is a convenient way to harness the benefits of this remarkable enzyme in a daily capsule. Doctor's Best only selects the purest and highest quality ingredients in their supplement range. Doctor's Best Nattokinase capsules contain 2,000 FU (fibrinolytic units) enzyme activity.
