What is BioNatto
BioNatto is a purified and encapsulated Nattokinase product which carries genuine Nattokinase NSK-SD® (Natural Super Kinase-Sprayed Dried) that has been tested for maximum fibrinolytic activity. Nattokinase NSK-SD® is clinically proven to dissolve blood clots, inhibit platelet and red blood cell aggregation, decrease blood viscosity and reduce inflammation or CRP.
Discovery of Nattokinase
Natto is a traditional Japanese food produced though a fermentation process and adding Bacillus natto, a beneficial bacterium to boiled soybean. Natto has been used in Japanese culture for over 1000 years for its popular taste and as a folk remedy for heart and vascular disease.
Over 200,000 tons of natto are eaten in Japan every year and Japan has the highest average longevity in the world.
Dr Hiroyuki Sumi discovered nattokinase in 1980 while working as a researcher at the University of Chicago. After testing over 173 natural foods, Dr Sumi discovered that the sticky “threads” in natto exhibited fibrinolytic (blood clot busting) activity.
Dr Sumi showed that when natto was dropped onto a blood clot in a Petri dish at body temperature, the clot was gone within 18 hours. He named this powerful fibrinolytic enzyme “Nattokinase“. Nattokinase enhances our body natural ability to fight blood clots associated with heart attacks and strokes!
The Importance of Healthy Circulation
Healthy circulation occurs when blood flows smoothly throughout the body. Nattokinase does not stop blood clot formation. it actually acts to support healthy circulation by assisting the fibrinolytic blood clearing system, which breaks down unhealthy cross linked fibrin deposits in the blood.
Healthy circulation is very important in supporting total health, when circulation is not balanced, tissues do not get enough nutrients and blood does not clear enough waste away. Systemic enzymes such as nattokinase support healthy circulation so that tissues can get the nutrients delivered and waste removed. the way healthy blood circulation should work in the body.
Cardiovascular Disease and Aging
As one advances in years, biochemical changes take place in the body, and the risks of contracting heart disease and stroke increase.
Fibrin is a naturally produced protein that forms in the blood after injury. Bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins present in the blood also trigger an inflammatory condition resulting in excess cross-linked fibrin. When there is no danger of blood loss and injury has not occurred, this cross-linked fibrin will circulate through the blood and will stick to the walls of blood vessels resulting in the formation of blood clots.
Our body also produces fibrinolytic enzymes called plasmin which break down and dissolve fibrin. Unfortunately, the production of plasmin decline as we age.
Circulatory diseases are much more prevalent in the elderly than in younger people. However arterial plaques are commonly found even in relatively young people, so it is a problem that shadows us throughout our lives. When blood thickens or clots increase, it can lead to minor health concerns like sore muscles to major health problems like cardiovascular disease, stroke, senile dementia.
For years the major culprit in clogged blood vessels has been assumed to be cholesterol. More recent research has shown that cholesterol buildup in arterial plaques is the body’s response to an injury to the arterial wall by blood clots. If blood clots could be prevented from forming in the blood, the whole issue of cholesterol levels could be avoided.
BioNatto Traditionally Used For Healthy Blood Circulation
