1. Nattokinase remains active in the body for 8 to 12 hours.
It not only dissolves existing blood clots, but prevents blood coagulation as well and may be a valuable precautionary measure in the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is associated increasingly with long-haul travel. However, research has yet to confirm this. In addition to its anti-clotting factors, Nattokinase has been found to reduce blood pressure. It contains substances that inhibit a naturally-occurring enzyme that causes blood vessels to narrow and blood pressure to rise.
2. Nattokinase is one of several enzymes related to your circulation.
Fibrin, the enzyme that causes blood clotting, is usually broken down by another enzyme, plasmin, which aids normal platelet aggregation and circulation.But plasmin production declines with age. Nattokinase helps by facilitating blood flow the same way plasmin does, and also supports your body’s natural production of plasmin
