There are more than twenty enzymes in the body that assist in clotting the blood, while only one that can break the clot down (plasmin).
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins present in the blood also trigger an inflammatory condition resulting in excess cross-linked fibrin. Since there is no danger of blood loss and trauma has not occurred, this cross-linked fibrin will circulate through the blood and will stick to the walls of blood vessels.
Nattokinase Proof: Blood Plasma Tests
Nattokinase has been the subject of 17 studies, including two small human trials. Researchers from JCR Pharmaceuticals, Oklahoma State University, and Miyazaki Medical College tested nattokinase on 12 healthy Japanese volunteers (6 men and 6 women, between the ages of 21 and 55).
They gave the volunteers 200 grams of natto (the food) before breakfast, then tracked fibrinolytic activity through a series of blood plasma tests.
The tests indicated that the natto generated a heightened ability to support circulation. On average, the volunteers ELT (a measure of how long it takes to dissolve a blood clot) dropped by 48 percent within two hours of administration. An additional study showed a 11% decrease in blood pressure after just two weeks. 1,2,3
