I wanted to share my experience with the enzyme Nattokinase. In Japan, Nattokinase is a traditional soybean dish in which the soybeans are boiled or steamed, then fermented. This fermentation process produces natto which is a healthy food that has particular health benefits. The Japanese often eat it at breakfast with rice. For commercial distribution, the Natto is then made into tablets. In Japan, it is the preferred supplement for a safe cardiovascular program due to its unique ability to thin the blood thus improving circulation. It should not be used before a dental visit because of its blood thinning properties.
In my situation, Nattokinase worked well because I required a medicine with blood-thinning properties. I believe that Nattokinase improved my condition and prevented a heart attack or stroke. An additional benefit was a significant improvement in my blood pressure levels, and I no longer require medication for high blood pressure.
Although, there has been limited research for Nattokinase, there have been studies involving animal research. Individual’s testimonials have been the strongest evidence of the benefits of Nattokinase. There are some potential side effects that you need to be aware of. Do not take Nattokinase with any other blood thinner. It is always advisable to consult with your doctor before starting any new supplement.
