Enzymedica - Natto-K - 90 Capsules
Enzymedica Natto-K contains specialized blends of enzymes including Nattokinase with NSK-SD—the only form of nattokinase that does not contain vitamin K2—to enhance the body’s production of plasmin. Plasmin breaks down excess fibrin, which may improve circulation. Natto-K may help maintain already healthy levels of blood clotting factors within a healthy range. Fibrin is a protein found in the blood. Maintaining healthy levels of fibrin promotes healthy coagulation of blood for an optimally functioning cardiovascular system.
Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi, a researcher for the Japan Ministry of Education, found that a part of the Japanese fermented soybean food known as natto exhibited strong fibrinolytic activity, meaning simply that it is effective in breaking down fibrin, a protein that is involved in clotting the blood.1 He named the enzyme responsible for this activity ‘nattokinase.’ Dr. Sumi later commented that nattokinase showed “a potency matched by no other enzyme.”
Natto-K contains specialized blends of high potency enzymes including Nattokinase with NSK-SD the only form of nattokinase that does not contain vitamin K2—to enhance the body’s production of plasmin. Plasmin is an enzyme that breaks down excess fibrin, which may improve circulation. Natto-K may promote optimal circulation and support cardiovascular health. Natto-K contains cellulase, amylase, protease and lipase Thera-blend™ enzymes. Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in specific pH levels, resulting in superior performance in the body.
When foods are cooked or processed, the enzymes that are naturally in the food are destroyed. Since the modern diet consists primarily of cooked or processed foods, we rely on the digestive enzymes that our bodies manufacture to help us break down our meals.
We all normally produce both metabolic and digestive enzymes. As we age, our bodies produce fewer of the enzymes that we need.
There are many different kinds of enzymes, and they each have a specific purpose. Sometimes people simply have a deficiency of certain types of enzyme. This is why food intolerance's occur. For example, lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase.
The good news is that studies have shown that by supplementing your diet with the right combination of digestive enzymes, you can take meaningful steps to improve and maintain your digestive health. The result may be improved regularity, less digestive discomfort, and better assimilation of vital nutrients.
Advantages of Digestive Enzyme Supplements
Nearly one in three people in the U.S. experience some kind of digestive problem. Though many suffer, few have to. The typical benefits of enzyme supplementation include reduced digestive distress, increased energy and improved regularity.
- Soothe Digestive Distress: When undigested foods travel through the intestines they can irritate and potentially damage the sensitive intestinal wall. Over time, this irritation may reduce our digestive capacity and negatively influence the vital absorption process.
- Increase Energy: According to Yuri Elkaim author of Eating for Energy, in most cases, up to 80% of our body’s vital energy is spent on digestion.3 By aiding the breakdown and absorption of foods, you can free up enormous amounts of energy, increasing physical vitality and enhancing energy levels.
- Promote Regularity: Promoting proper digestion may encourage a healthy intestinal environment, and help relieve occasional constipation and irregularity.
As responsible members of the business community, Enzymedica desires to leave the environment better than they found it. At Enzymedica, they understand that there is an emissions footprint associated with their business operations. They partnered with Green Mountain Energy Company in 2009 to take a leadership role in calculating and offsetting 100% of the total calculated carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with their annual electricity, corporate owned vehicles and corporate air travel. Through this process, Enzymedica is taking responsibility for its share of CO2 emissions and has committed to being part of the solution to global warming. By means of these initiatives, Enzymedica’s business operations since 2009 have been “carbon neutral.”
