About Supplements.co.nz Doctor's Best Nattokinase 2,000 FU
Traditionally used as a folk remedy in Japan, Nattokinase is now being recognized by modern medical science as well for its numerous health benefits. This enzyme is derived from ‘natto bean’, which is a traditional fermented soy food of Japan. Nattokinase works best when Vitamin K is removed from it. Nattokinase enzyme is not only essential for supporting the cardiovascular system, but also helps in maintaining healthy blood circulation. An important fact to note is that Nattokinase enzymes are not measured in milligrams, but in ‘active units’. Doctor’s Best Nattokinase veggie capsule contains 2000 FU per capsule.

Support for circulation and cardiovascular disease
Studies have shown that nattokinase is the ingredient contained in natto that imparts the circulation-enhancing effect. Nattokinase helps the body keep blood flowing in a healthy way, promoting all round health for the heart, brain and muscles, by increasing circulation and therefore much needed oxygen to all organs. Doctor’s Best Nattokinase has had the vitamin K removed since Vitamin K assists with blood coagulation.
How are Nattokinase enzymes measured?
Enzymes are not measured in milligrams, but rather in ‘active’ units. A 1000mg capsule with low enzymatic activity would be worthless. Doctor’s Best Nattokinase veggie capsule contains 2000 FU (fibrinolytic activity) per capsule. This is a very high amount of activity.
How to take Nattokinase:
Doctor’s Best Nattokinase should be taken with no food in the stomach and one hour before eating. This is important because the enzyme needs to activate in the lower intestine, so that it can be absorbed into the bloodstream and perform its primary function which is to digest dead protein.

How should I take Best Nattokinase?
The best way to take Nattokinase is on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and just before bedtime (if your stomach has no food in it). The reason why we don't want your stomach to have food in it is because it would activate the Nattokinase. It is an enzyme so if it meets food it will activate and digest the food. What we want it to do is to activate in the lower intestine where it gets taken up into the blood stream and it is there where we want it to start digesting the 'dead proteins' to help with your circulation. Please take it with a room temperature glass of water not juice and never take it out of the capsule.
How is Nattokinase produced?
Natto is produced by a fermentation process by adding the bacteria Bacillus subtilis to boiled soybeans. The resulting Nattokinase enzyme is produced when Bacillus subtilis acts on the soybeans. While other soy foods contain enzymes, it is only the natto preparation that contains the specific Nattokinase enzyme.
