nattokinase is an enzyme (a protein that hastens biochemical reactions) that is extracted from a famous jap food known as natto. natto is boiled soybeans which have been fermented with a bacterium known as bacillus natto.

natto has been used as a folk treatment for diseases of the heart and circulatory device (cardiovascular disease) for masses of years. nattokinase, the chemical in natto that might be responsible for its consequences, was found with the aid of a university of chicago researcher, dr. hiroyuki sumi.

you may not locate nattokinase in soy foods apart from natto, seeing that nattokinase is produced through the precise fermentation system used to make natto.

nattokinase is used for cardiovascular sicknesses which include coronary heart disease, high blood stress, stroke, chest ache (angina), deep vein thrombosis (dvt), "hardening of the arteries" (atherosclerosis), hemorrhoids, varicose veins, terrible circulate, and peripheral artery ailment (pad).

it is also used for pain, fibromyalgia, persistent fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, muscle spasms, infertility, cancer, and a vitamin-deficiency ailment called beriberi.

different names is nattokinase acknowledged by using:
bsp, extrait de natto, fermented soybeans, haricots de soja ferment├ęs, natto de soja, natto extract, nattokinasa, nk, soy natto, subtilisin nat.

likely effective for:
high blood strain. research shows that taking nattokinase (nsk ii, japan bio sciences laboratories company ltd., japan) day by day for eight weeks can reduce blood stress in people with excessive blood stress.
inadequate evidence to rate effectiveness for...
deep vein thrombosis (dvt). there is some proof that taking a specific mixture product (flite tabs) might decrease the hazard of getting a blood clot in the legs in the course of long plane flights. this product combines a blend of a hundred and fifty mg of nattokinase plus pycnogenol. two pills are taken 2 hours before the flight and then again 6 hours later.
coronary heart sickness.
"hardening of the ateries" (atherosclerosis).
negative movement.
varicose veins.
peripheral artery disease (pad).
persistent fatigue syndrome.
uterine fibroids.
muscle spasms.
most cancers.
other situations.

extra evidence is needed to fee the effectiveness of nattokinase for these uses.
