Nattokinase breaks down Fibrin. Fibrin is a
protein that forms in the blood after trauma or injury. This is
essential to stop excess blood loss but excess fibrin has been shown
to contribute to cardiovascular issues, poor circulation and slow
There are more than twenty enzymes in the body
that assist in clotting the blood, while only one that can break the
clot down (plasmin).
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins present in the blood
also trigger an inflammatory condition resulting in excess
cross-linked Fibrin. Since there is no danger of blood loss and
trauma has not occurred, this cross-linked fibrin will circulate
through the blood and will stick to the walls of blood vessels.
Discovery of Thrombolytic Enzymes
Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, M.D. (a.k.a, Dr. Natto) a researcher of the
Japan Ministry of Education and majoring in the physiological
chemistry at the blood laboratory of the University of Chicago, had
long researched thrombolytic enzymes. He was searching for a natural
agent that could successfully dissolve thrombus associated with
cardiac and cerebral infarction (blood clots associated with heart
attacks and stroke).
Nattokinase Proof: Blood Plasma Tests
Nattokinase has been the subject of 17 studies,
including two small human trials. Researchers from JCR
Pharmaceuticals, Oklahoma State University, and Miyazaki Medical
College tested nattokinase on 12 healthy Japanese volunteers (6 men
and 6 women, between the ages of 21 and 55).
They gave the volunteers 200 grams of natto (the
food) before breakfast, then tracked fibrinolytic activity through a
series of blood plasma tests.
The tests indicated that the natto generated a heightened
ability to support circulation. On average, the
volunteers'' ELT (a measure of how long it takes to dissolve a blood
clot) dropped by 48 percent within two hours of treatment. An
additional study showed a 11% decrease in blood pressure after just
two weeks. 1,2,3
