What is Nattokinase and What Are its Health Benefits

soybeans Nattokinase is a highly purified enzyme which is produced by the fermentation process of soybeans. It is a fibrinolytic enzyme that has been scientifically proven to have many health benefits, primarily for the cardiovascular and circulatory system. This is the reason I use it. Since leaving hospital nine years ago, I have suffered considerably with blood circulation problems – swollen ankles and a great deal of pain which varies from a ‘tooth ache’ type of pain, to feeling like my ankle is about to explode, on very bad days.

Since using Nattokinase every day, I have seen a definite improvement with my circulation and reduced swelling in my ankles, which I am thrilled about. This is a huge relief which has made daily life that much more ‘liveable’.

However, commercial demand for it’s blood thinning properties has produced an alternative medicine product that is available in tablet/capsule form. This is great news if you are adverse to horrible smells and dislike textures that resemble a slug’s sticky trail, and also if you don’t know how to make natto!
