The Potent Fibrinolytic Enzyme
Featured in: Healthy Enzymes
The human body produces several types of enzymes for making thrombus, but only one main enzyme for breaking it down and dissolving it - plasmin. The properties of nattokinase closely resemble plasmin.
Nattokinase is a potent fibrinolytic enzyme extracted and highly purified from a traditional Japanese food called Natto. Research has shown Nattokinase to support the body in breaking up and dissolving the unhealthy coagulation of blood and to support fibrinolytic activity and may help to lower blood pressure.
According to Dr. Martin Milner, from the Center for Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, what makes nattokinase a particularly potent enzyme, is that it enhances the body’s natural ability to fight blood clots in several different ways. Nattokinase so closely resembles plasmin, it dissolves fibrin directly. In addition, it also enhances the body’s production of both plasmin and other clot-dissolving agents, including urokinase (endogenous).
Nattokinase may help prevent hardening of arteries. Nattokinase shows promising results in Cerebral hemorrhage or infarction, Hemorrhoids and varicose veins, Senile dementia, Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Muscle spasms, Poor healing, Chronic inflammation.
