Nattokinase as a possible treatment for thrombosis

Back in 1990, when research was underway on Nattokinase, Japanese researchers found:

  1. A fibrinolytic enzyme now known as Nattokinase was present in Natto.
  2. Oral administration of nattokinase caused fibrinolytic activity in the plasma.
  3. Given orally to dogs, nattokinase broke down experimentally induced blood clots.

Enhancement of the fibrinolytic activity in plasma by oral administration of nattokinase.

These experiments and other like them paved the way for nattokinase to be accepted as a possible treatment for patients with a higher chance of blood clots.

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.
