With the product Nattokinase we have created something that was not yet there in this explicit form on the German market for bodybuilding supplements. But we have always been considered a brand that could open eyes and set trends with unconventional things. We also live up to this role with our Nattokinase.
What is nattokinase?
Nattō is the name given to soybeans that have been cooked and then fermented by the bacterium Bacillus subtilis ssp. natto. In Japan and other countries, it has traditionally been used to make a cheese-like food for more than 2,000 years. It is believed that the consumption of this food is an important factor in the high life expectancy of the Japanese population.
In fact, studies have demonstrated that high consumption of Nattō is associated with a reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease, particularly death from ischemic heart disease .
Studies have shown that Nattō contains, among numerous other enzymes, a potent fibrinolytic enzyme, which has been given the name nattokinase . Fibrinolytic in this sense means that the enzyme has an inhibitory effect on blood clotting.
Since this discovery, numerous scientific studies have been conducted, which have observed that nattokinase is the most potent ingredient responsible for the beneficial properties of Nattō .
How does nattokinase work?
A recent review of the previous studies concluded that nattokinase, unlike other conventional therapies, combines several mechanisms of action. These included positive effects on thrombosis, hypertension, atherosclerosis, elevated blood lipid levels, blood clotting, and protection of the nervous system in individuals with cardiovascular disease .
Another advantage, according to the review, is that nattokinase is poor in side effects compared to conventional drugs used to protect the cardiovascular system or treat cardiovascular disease .
Especially in recent years, more and more efforts have been made by the scientific community to improve the production and purification of nattokinase from fermented beans. Thus, we are now also able to offer a potent and suitable raw material that can be a legal and effective alternative to conventional drugs.
How should nattokinase be taken?
Each capsule of BigZone Nattokinase contains 2000 fibrinolytic units. We recommend taking one capsule of Nattokinase per day. Due to the inhibitory effect on blood clotting, the time of intake should be as far away from weight training as possible.
