Facts about Nattokinase
Nattokinase is an enzyme (a protein that speeds up biochemical reactions) that is extracted from a popular Japanese food called natto. Natto is boiled soybeans that have been fermented with a bacterium called Bacillus natto.
Natto has been used as a folk remedy for diseases of the heart and circulatory system (cardiovascular disease) for hundreds of years. Nattokinase, the chemical in natto that is probably responsible for its effects, was discovered by a University of Chicago researcher, Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi.
You won’t find nattokinase in soy foods other than natto, since nattokinase is produced through the specific fermentation process used to make natto.
Nattokinase is used for cardiovascular diseases including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, chest pain (angina), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), hemorrhoids, varicose veins, poor circulation, and peripheral artery disease (PAD).
It is also used for pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, muscle spasms, infertility, cancer, and a vitamin-deficiency disease called beriberi.
How does it work?Nattokinase decreases the ability of blood to clot. This "thins the blood" and might protect against conditions caused by blood clots such as stroke, heart attack, and others.
ADVANCED SYSTEMIC ENZYME FORMULA: Serracor-NK is a powerful blend of enteric-coated serrapeptase and nattokinase, systemic enzymes studied for their fibrinolytic properties, with antioxidant herbs, CoEnzyme Q10 and magnesium. Serracor-NK supports a healthy circulatory system and normal fibrin metabolism.
RANGE OF USE: Supports the body’s natural response to inflammation including respiratory and sinus, and cardiovascular health.
ACHIEVE OPTIMUM HEALTH:
Excess fibrin in the body can do more harm than good. A high level of circulating fibrin has the potential to accelerate scarring, increase clot formation and impede normal blood flow. This can cause issues leading to cardiovascular dysfunction.
The combination of serrapeptase and nattokinase used in addition to a complete array of proteolytic enzymes, makes Serracor-NK a unique blend designed to support maximum circulatory health.
