Active Nattokinase Can be Absorbed Across Rat Intestinal Tract

Researchers in Japan investigated the absorption of Nattokinase across the rat intestinal tract.

They introduced nattokinase into the duodenum of the rats at a dose of 80mg/Kg and monitored fibrinogen in the plasma.  There was a breakdown of the fibrinogen suggesting that nattokinase had been absorbed across the intestinal tract and itself remained intact to carry out it’s protease activity.

About Andy

I suffered a serious neck injury when I was about 19 years old. That problem didn't affect me until I was in my 40s, but I then suffered two prolapsed discs in my neck and problems with my right arm and hand. Serrapeptase was recommended by my chiropractor to try to break up the scar tissue around the vertebrae that were causing me the problems. It seemed to help me with my problem, so created this site to help inform people what serrapeptase is, what it can do and just as importantly, what it cannot do. I hope you find the information useful.
