Natto‚ a traditional Japanese food made from fermented soybeans‚ helps your body combat vascular and heart disease for decades. Unfortunately‚ many dislike natto because of its cheesy texture. The enzyme that provides these positive effects is known as nattokinase‚ and can be extracted from natto and put in a tasteless capsule while maintaining its anti-clotting properties and ability to support healthy blood circulation. Nattokinase has been shown to be four times as effective in disintegrating blood clots as naturally-occurring plasmin. In addition‚ nattokinase can also help you maintain normal blood pressure levels. Nattokinase naturally contains vitamin K-2‚ a nutrient that allows your blood to clot. The problem is that vitamin K may cancel out the positive effects of nattokinase; although your body needs to be able to clot in order to prevent excess blood loss‚ too much clotting may cause blockages in your blood vessels and force your heart to work harder to pump blood. An overworked heart puts you at risk for heart attacks and strokes. Each Nattokinase NSK-SD® capsule is unique because it contains 50 mg of purified nattokinase that has been extracted through a patented process that eliminates all traces of vitamin K. It’s also manufactured with a specialized‚ non-genetically modified strain of soybeans. This was the first nattokinase supplement to enter the American market‚ and its authenticity has been certified by several Japanese regulatory bodies. The potency and safety of each batch is rigorously tested before it gets to you. This version may be suitable for you if you can’t or don’t want to take softgels. This bottle of 300 vegetarian capsules is perfect if you’re already familiar with nattokinase and want to make sure you always have a supply handy. It should last you for at least five months at the recommended dosage of two capsules daily. Allergy Research Group has been providing high-quality‚ hypoallergenic supplements for over 30 years.
