The Interesting History of Nattokinase – An Effective Natural Blood Thinner

These days so many individuals are experiencing challenges with their cardiovascular health in relation to poor circulation of blood. This can and often leads to health issues and may even result in heart problems and even serious illness or death. This is a concern for everyone because these problems are becoming more common in the modern world. 

Maybe, this is because of the lifestyle we lead like the type or kind of food we consume or the daily activity or inactivity. Regardless of the reason, one must remember that as people we are prone to poor blood circulation which is a high risk factor for heart and heart-related diseases.

Nattokinase, was discovered as a natural alternative to a better cardiovascular health. It was Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, a Japanese researcher, who discovered Nattokinase. The basic idea of the discovery is that, a Japanese soy cheese called Natto was put in an artificial thrombus or, in layman's term, artificial blood clot. The artificial blood clot around the natto was dissolved. On observing this result Dr. Sumi extracted the enzyme responsible for breaking down the artificial blood clot from natto. It was then called Nattokinase, meaning an enzyme from natto.

Nattokinase is an important science based supplement which is an effective natural blood thinner. After the discovery of nattokinase, it is now years later available in an easy to use capsule form and it is used as an alternative blood thinner for those experiencing problems with their blood flow or those who want to maintain a healthy one. These days it is more common for people looking for medication to also be looking for a more natural choice. Boostceuticals double strength Nattokinase 200 mg helps to maintain a smoother blood flow.

Natto is a traditional and very popular Japanese food dish consumed for centuries in Japanese culture and consists of soy beans which are fermented with a human friendly bacteria Bacillus subtilis after boiling. (Nattokinase is produced by the bacterium acting on the soybeans during the fermentation). The main benefits of natto come from vitamin K2 and nattokinase. Kinases have a splitting effect and Nattokinase dissolves fibrin which is an essential clotting factor therefore allowing a smoother flow and blood thinning effect. In alternative medicine nattokinase has been used as a clot dissolver and blood thinner

On the other hand Vitamin K is part of the clotting factor pathway and is a main part of the clotting factor process which prevents excessive bleeding and excessive thinning of blood. Boostceuticals pure nattokinase enzyme with all vitamin k removed is of value as we age and blood flow changes in our bodies.

The advantage of Boostceuticals formula purified Nattokinase in the form of Soybean Fibrinase Extract 200mg providing 4000 Fibrinolytic Units (not the more common 2000 fu) of activity per capsule is that it offers the positive effects of Nattokinase on its own.

This 200 mg Nattokinase is twice the strength of the more common 100mg nattokinase supplement.


Is it all natural, safe and how does it work?

Yes it is naturally occurring and Boostceuticals Nattokinase is made in the USA in an FDA approved facility under GMP known as good manufacturing practices. It is gluten free, soy free and contains no artificial coloring, artificial flavor, preservatives, yeast, corn, milk or milk derivatives, lactose, salt, sodium, sugar, gluten, starch or wheat.

Nattokinase assists and maintains already normal blood pressure levels and lowers harmful build up in all blood vessels including arteries, veins and capillaries resulting in a smooth blood flow


Here are a few starter tips on using your Nattokinase dietary supplement:

  • For adults, take one (1) capsule daily, preferably with meal and water.
  • Blood can coagulate increasing risk of blood vessel disease. Nattokinese supports healthy blood circulation by dissolving these coagulation effects on blood by maintaining healthier levels of blood clotting factors
  • Boostceuticals high dosage 200mg tablets provide double the dose compared to many which are 100mg and the 200 count is a much larger bottle than the regular 90 or 100 Count. This provides long term maximum benefit and maximum value.
  • Nattokinase from Boostceuticals is a popular enzyme derived from natto a Japanese soy food which contains pure highest strength 4000 FU ( not 2000 FU ) per capsule nattokinase which helps circulation for optimum health and maintenance of blood pressure levels already within the normal range
  • Not intended for use by pregnant or nursing women. If you are taking any medications or planning any medical procedure, consult your doctor before use.

Nattokinase is very popular for individuals frustrated with blood pressure or hypertension, glucose metabolism or risk of blood vessel disease and are looking for some improvement and protection. It is also very popular for individuals looking for a natural solution to their health challenge.

As Nattokinase supports and addresses issues such as the changing physiology of blood vessel walls as we age the supplement can be of significant benefit. In these cases blood thinners can assist in preventing the risk of ill health and which avoid blood restriction and slowing of blood flow. Nattokinase as a science based dietary supplement that can be a more natural way of dealing with these relevant and important modern day life issues.
