Nattokinase has been demonstrated to have affect blood flow and may also support cardiovascular health.*
Nattokinase is an all-natural, potent enzyme that is extracted from natto and highly purified. Natto is a fermented soybean food that has been consumed in Japan for over 1000 years.
Nattokinase has been the subject of many studies, including human and animal trials.
In 1980, during a series of in vitro experiments at the University of Chicago Medical School, Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi discovered that natto could affect fibrin levels. Fibrin is a whitish, filamentous protein that is formed in blood after a trauma or injury to protect the body from excessive blood loss.
Strands of fibrin can accumulate along the walls of blood vessels and affect blood flow.* According to Dr. Sumi, a 150 g portion of natto contains approximately 500 mg of nattokinase.
Nattokinase is produced by Bacillus subtilis natto during the soybean fermentation process. While other soy foods contain enzymes, it is only the natto preparation that contains the nattokinase enzyme.
Nattokinase supports healthy levels of fibrin and supports healthy blood flow through protease enzyme action (e.g., subtilisin protease, bacillopeptidase.
Not only does nattokinase act directly on fibrin, but as demonstrated by in vitro work, its action also causes the release of substances that trigger the body’s production of other important enzymes that help regulate fibrin formation.
Nattokinase can also inhibit a key enzyme that affects extracellular and arterial vasoconstriction, and it can generate tissue plasminogen activators.

Therapeutic formulas for best results.
As a Board-Certified Internal Medicine physician, I offer pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements. This means they are typically stronger in potency and higher in quality than supplements you’ll find in most retail or online stores. It also means you can expect to achieve greater results.
Quality ingredients and formulations. Pure and simple.
The ingredients have been tested for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can trust the identity of each formula. It’s so important to know that what you are putting in your body is the purest form and highest quality. I would want nothing less for myself, my patients, or for you.
The ingredients and formulations in my products are from wholesome, pure, clean sources, and in their most bioavailable forms for maximum effectiveness. This means that they are in the form that is best absorbed and utilized by your body.
It’s not just what’s in the supplement that matters - what's not in the supplement is just as important. Many of my patients, including myself, have food allergies or sensitivities. None of my supplements contain gluten, dairy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes or toxins.
There are a couple of rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of egg and a few contain tree nuts. All ingredients are clearly indicated on the product pages. Be sure to read carefully if you have any know food allergies or sensitivities.
Highest manufacturing standards.
The supplements in my store are manufactured in facilities that are strictly controlled by rigorous standards that meet cGMPs, and routinely pass FDA and third-party audits. Materials go through laboratory testing from raw source to the finished product…to bottling and labeling.
I offer the best of the best, from all over the country.
In order to provide a comprehensive array of supplements I don’t rely on just one manufacturer. I recognize that some have better sources and formulations in specific areas than others, and I only select the best of the best. This means, you don’t have to go researching and searching – I've done all the leg work for you.
It’s taken many years of research, trial, implementation, and relationship building to bring what I am offering to you and to my patients. I also stay on top of the latest advancements in formulas, science and industry news to continue to offer the highest quality of innovative supplements. This means you will see changes in offerings to reflect cutting edge solutions.
Evidence-based. Supplements that offer real health solutions.
I personally select every product on my store. Ultimately, it is the science, research and clinical testing that drives my choices and recommendations.
Also, I choose what works. In my years of experience, I have observed the positive outcomes of many of these formulas with patients. In my practice I look for the most natural methods to address health concerns - and often key nutrients and supplements are a huge part of the solution.
I am truly passionate about helping you achieve your best health. I hope you find the nutritional supplements you are looking for and that you are satisfied with your purchase. My helpful staff is committed to providing excellent customer service. Please email them at email@example.com if you have any questions.
