Lumbrokinase acts similarly to nattokinase, in that it has been proven to prevent and disperse blood clots. This means it has secondary fibrinolysis actions (blood clots which are dissipated by medication), but it is primarily a thrombolytic (cardiovascular) natural treatment, meaning that it helps to thin blood.
For information, primary fibrinolysis is your bodies natural means of dispersing coagulation which is weak in some individuals.
The big difference between lumbrokinase and nattokinase is where it comes from.
Nattokinase comes from the stinky fermenting process of natto (boiled soy beans), but lumbrokinase comes from earthworms! Or more precisely, from the cells of intestinal tissue and fluid of the earthworm.
This is yet another natural resource we have available to us, which blood disorder patients may be able to use instead of dangerous medications.
Of course, there is a lot more research needed on the long term affects and benefits of lumbrokinase.
What are the Benefits of Lumbrokinase?
- Help’s people with deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
- Help’s cancer patients by slowing the growth of tumors
- Breaks down causes of habitual (bacterial) infections, such as Lyme disease
- Could help reduce the affects of autism by allowing anti-microbials to destroy bacteria bio-films
Cardiovascular diseases like heart attacks, angina and strokes, along with (chronic) bacterial afflictions like Lyme disease are among the biggest paralyzer’s and killers on the planet.
This is why more research is being done on lumbrokinase, because it can prevent and even eradicate disease. This incredible little enzyme, could even prevent deaths.
Specifically, this fibrinolytic enzyme has dramatic effects on Lyme disease.
It very cleverly breaks down the bacterial bio-films caused by the infection (from ticks), and stopping our immune system from harming our central nervous system with it’s reaction’s to that bio-film.
The latest research shows that lumbrokinase works similar to the nattokinase, and also the serrapeptase systemic enzyme, by dissolving fibrin proteins, blood clots and dead/scar tissue. It does not affect living tissue.
Lumbrokinase Side Effects
Are there any side effects to using lumbrokinase? No, unless you are currently taking other heart or anti-coagulation medication like warfarin, which is derived from plant enzymes.
Something that should assure you of the safety of lumbrokinase supplements are the fact that this enzyme has been used in ancient Chinese medicine (in it’s natural form) for many, many centuries.
However, it’s like most medications or potions. When taken in correct doses, it is harmless. But when taken in higher quantities, studies have shown that the following side effects could be evident.
- Itchy skin or rashes
- Abdominal bloating
How Does Lumbrokinase Compare to Nattokinase and Serrapeptase?
There are two other enzymes in the same class as lumbrokinase, nattokinase and serrapeptase.
They all have similar, and very different healing properties.
The benefits of nattokinase are associated more with the human bodies blood system, and does great work at relieving fibroids in women and will also attack cancer cells.
And the serrapeptase enzymes health benefits include helping to relieve the symptoms of a larger list of problems and conditions which can be read in depth on that serrapeptase page, but a few of those ailments are ear and throat infections, UTI’s and varicose vein’s.
Important: If you are thinking of taking lumbrokinase and you are due to have surgery, you should refrain from taking it around seven to fourteen days prior.
And you should always speak to your physician before taking any supplement that acts with your blood, before you take it.
