Nattokinase

The best all-natural circulation solution

Natto has since been the subject of 17 studies, including two small human trials in Japan. Based on this research, nattokinase is one of the most promising nutrients for a healthy circulatory system.

Nattokinase is one of several enzymes related to your circulation. Fibrin, the enzyme that causes blood clotting, is usually broken down by another enzyme, plasmin. Plasmin aids normal platelet aggregation and circulation. But plasmin production declines with age. Nattokinase helps by facilitating blood flow the same way plasmin does, and also supports your body's natural production of plasmin.

My nattokinase uses the patented NSK-SD™ formulation, which has its naturally-occurring vitamin K removed. Plus, unlike some others, this product gives you a full 2,000 FU (fibrin units) per day, the dosage recommended by Dr. Sumi and other leading researchers.

Nattokinase:

  • Supports normal circulation, blood flow, and blood viscosity
  • Helps maintain your body's normal blood-clotting mechanism
  • Supports natural production of plasmin, which reduces fibrin
  • Helps maintain normal blood pressure levels

Scientific Support

  • In a study of 15 healthy men and women, taking 100 mg (2,000 FU) of NSK-SD® significantly increased blood flow within 3 hours after ingestion.1
  • In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 86 participants received either 2,000 FU of nattokinase placebo daily for 8 weeks. The group receiving natto showed reduced blood pressure significantly more so (-2.84 mmHg) than the placebo group after 8 weeks. Plasma rennin also decreased significantly among those taking natto for 8 weeks.2
