Nattokinase: use to prevent cardiovascular disease

  1. Nattokinase is an enzyme with health promoting properties. Nattokinase - which is made by adding the beneficial bacterium Bacillus natto to the soy product natto - has been used in Japanese traditional medicine for years. The positive effect of the enzyme is now also recognized in Western medicine. For example, it is able to break down blood clots and lower blood pressure. It can be used as a preventive agent by people with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

What is nattokinase?

  1. Nattokinase is an enzyme - a protein that accelerates biochemical reactions - that is made from the product natto, widely used in Japan. Natto is made from fermented soybeans where the good bacteria Bacillus natto

Breakdown of blood clots

  1. The first steps towards recognition of nattokinase as a health-promoting agent came in the 1980s, when researchers at the University of Chicago discovered that the enzyme can dissolve fibrin and plasmin. Fibrin is a blood clotting protein in plasma that plays an important role in wound healing and blood clotting. Plasmin is a glycoprotein that plays an important role in dissolving blood clots. By hydrolyzing fibrin and plasmin, endogenous prourokinase is converted to urokinase thereby promoting fibrinolysis (Sumi, et al., 1987

Lowering blood pressure

  1. Because of these properties, nattokinase is considered a safe, powerful, inexpensive and natural supplement for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. An American study from 2016 has shown that nattokinase has a blood pressure lowering effect. One study used two groups of 79 subjects in total, one group receiving nattokinase for eight weeks and the other receiving placebo. A significant drop in blood pressure was observed in the nattokinase group (Jensen et al., 2016
