A traditional Japanese vegetable-derived cheese used for over 1,000 years, natto has been prized for both its popular taste and vascular support properties. Nattokinase, a fibrinolytic enyzme isolated from natto, helps to maintain healthy activity of the body’s natural clotting and fibrinolytic processes. This enzyme has demonstrated enhanced oral fibrinolytic potential when compared with other fibrinolytic enzymes from over 200 foods.
Supports Healthy Fibrinolytic Activity And Clotting Function
Fibrinolysis is a natural physiological process. As the body ages, however, endogenous fibrinolytic activity declines. One study suggested that nattokinase inactivates plasminogen activator inhibitor, maintaining healthy fibrinolytic activity. Nattokinase may also directly degrade fibrin in much the same way as plasmin. Furthermore, researchers from JCR Pharmaceuticals, Oklahoma State University and Miyazaki Medical College examined the effect of nattokinase from natto food consumption in 12 healthy Japanese participants. The results suggested that natto supported healthy clotting function compared to placebo.
Promotes Healthy Circulation And Blood Flow
In another study, nattokinase provided positive support for healthy circulation in animals. In an additional animal study conducted by Biotechnology Research Laboratories and JCR Pharmaceuticals of Kobe, Japan, nattokinase promoted healthy blood flow.
Maintains Blood Vessel Function
In 1995, scientists at the Miyazaki Medical College and Kurashiki University in Japan demonstrated the potential for nattokinase to support blood vessel health in human subjects.
