Nattokinase benefits

In this short video, Dr. Chad Larson discusses the health benefits of nattokinase.


My notes:

  • Nattokinase is a fibrinolytic enzyme that breaks down fibrin in the blood.    Fibrin is the long, fibrous protein that is involved in blood clotting.  When you cut yourself, these chains of fibrin are layered over the wound to block the flow of blood.  That’s fine when we are talking about wounds, but clotting can occur within the circulatory system.
  • When fibrin builds up, blood thickens and slows down circulation.  This is important for anyone with a history of blood clots.
  • Nattokinase dissolves fibrin, reducing the problem.  It does not affect the coagulation of blood unlike some other supplements.

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.
