Nattokinase is a fibrinolytic enzyme that helps to maintain normal blood viscosity and support cardiovascular health.
Nattovena is an ultra-concentrated 4,000 FU pure nattokinase dietary supplement, in easy-to-swallow capsules.
The enzyme was discovered while studying the fermented soy dish known as "natto". A researcher was trying to uncover why certain foods had higher fibrinolytic activity than others.
He came upon a Japanese fermented soybean food called natto that had large volumes of an enzyme that he coined "nattokinase", based on where he discovered the enzyme. He later found that a microorganism that was used in the fermentation process was responsible for creating this enzyme. This same microorganism (Bacillus subtilis) is used today in the production of the enzyme.
Nattovena is one of the strongest nattokinase supplements available, period. It provides more than 4,000 fibrinolytic units (FUs) per capsule, which is twice the potency of ordinary nattokinase products. Plus, it's naturally acid-stable since it's derived from a food source. This gives Nattovena the added benefit of not needing an enteric coating for protection against stomach acid.
Nattokinase is a fibrinolytic (fibrin-dissolving) enzyme originally discovered in a Japanese fermented soybean food called natto. This soybean dish is fermented with a strain of Bacillus subtilis bacteria that in turn produces the nattokinase enzyme, which upon its discovery was later named after the respective dish. The fermented dish, natto, has a slimy texture, sour taste, and strong smell that is very unappealing to some.
Despite its questionable taste, natto has been shown in numerous studies to have many health benefits. For its use in nutritional supplements, the nattokinase enzyme is extracted and purified in a lab, so the benefits of the enzyme can be had without disrupting your palate.
How Nattokinase Works
Fibrin is a protein that plays a major role in blood clotting and scar formation, making it an essential component of the healing process—and vital for maintaining your health and general well-being. However, fibrin overproduction and weak fibrin degradation have been a factor in many of today’s most common circulatory health concerns.
Fibrin is naturally produced in the body by a protein called thrombin and broken down by the body's own fibrinolytic enzyme, plasmin. Fibrin is typically produced during the recovery and healing processes that are triggered by an injury or other health concerns. Usually, the production of fibrin occurs in a delicate balance. However, many conditions can impair fibrin degradation and lead to excessive levels of fibrin within the body.
Nattokinase is a fibrinolytic enzyme in and of itself, which means that it dissolves excess fibrin during the healing process. In fact, studies show that nattokinase is actually more potent than the body's own plasmin in terms of breaking up blood clots—a process which is referred to as thrombolytic therapy or fibrinolytic activity.
Nattovena's potency is unparalleled in its class. The standard for nattokinase manufacturing is a potency of up to 2,000 FUs, or fibrinolytic units, of fibrin degrading activity per capsule. Nattovena has broken the mold by providing 4,000 FUs of activity—double the ordinary dose—making it the strongest nattokinase activity per capsule in its class, period.
