Nattokinase was discovered in 1980 by Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, researcher at Chicago University, after testing approximately 200 natural foods. He noticed that nattokinase is the most potent fibrinolytic enzyme, which could effectively dissolve harmful blood clots associated with heart attack or stroke. Numerous scientific studies have shown that nattokinase is a great promise as a natural means to promote a healthy blood flow. It is worth noting that not all nattokinase is created equally. Nattokinase NSK-SD® is a superior form of nattokinase. Developed by Japan Bio Science Laboratory, the leader and pioneer in nattokinase, NSK-SD® is the most researched nattokinase worldwide. This proprietary nattokinase has been research proven to promote healthy blood flow, blood pressure and cardiovascular function through dissolving harmful clots and build-up in blood vessels, naturally balancing clotting system, normalising blood viscosity and levels of C-reactive protein, a cardiovascular risk marker.
The authenticity of nattokinase NSK-SD® has been recognized by JHFA (Japan Health and Nutrition Food Association) and JNKA (Japan Nattokinase Association). Extracted via a patented technology, nattokinase NSK-SD® is free of purine, vitamin K2 and pungent smell of natto. High purine may increase the risk of high uric acid and gout; while high concentration of vitamin K2 may increase blood coagulation, decreasing the efficacy of nattokinase
