Featured Product: Nattokinase
One of the world’s most important heart-health breakthroughs was made about 1,000 years ago. It was buried in Japanese families’ backyards.
If you visited Japan 10 centuries ago, you might have seen housewives burying bundles in their yards. The bundles were made of boiled soybeans, wrapped in rice straw.
These simple bundles were the start of a heart-health revolution. A revolution that gives the Japanese a defensive edge against heart trouble even today. A revolution that’s only now reaching the West.
Japanese housewives have been making natto – a popular cheese-like food – for over 1,000 years. But it’s virtually unknown everywhere else. That’s a shame, because it’s loaded with a secret that’s kept Japanese rates of heart trouble low for 1,000 years.
What is this secret? And can it help defend you against heart trouble? Read on to discover the ancient heart-health secret of natto.
The Undiscovered Heart-Health Bacteria
According to legend, natto was discovered by a Japanese general fleeing a surprise attack. His staff was boiling soybeans to feed their horses when a surprise nighttime attack forced them to flee.
The men threw the beans into rice straw sacks, mounted up, and rode for their lives. In the morning, they noticed the soybeans were sticky and smelled sweet. So they tasted them.
The sticky mess tasted delicious… and soy went from animal feed to human food in one fell swoop.
But these soldiers couldn’t have known a bacterium unique to rice straw was the reason. The bacteria had fermented the soybeans, creating natto.
What they did figure out was boiled soybeans, plus rice straw, plus time, equaled a delicious food. Before too long, housewives across Japan were burying their boiled soybeans, wrapped in rice straw, in the back yard.
But it wasn’t until 1987 that scientists realized the rice-straw bacteria were creating a new enzyme. An enzyme that had created a heart-health revolution.
The enzyme – nattokinase – multiplies the heart’s defenses. It’s a key behind the low rates of heart trouble in Japan. And it can be behind your heart-health defenses, too.
Because Best Life Herbals now offers a pure, potent source of this rare enzyme in Nattokinase.
Attacking Dangerous Blood Clots at Their Source
Your heart has a tough job. It has to pump blood throughout your body… even when blood vessels have been narrowed by a build-up of cholesterol.
Stiff and narrowed arteries lead to restricted blood flow lead to challenges your heart may not be able to handle.
But if your arteries are clearer… if your blood is “thinner”… your heart doesn’t have to work as hard. Which helps you stay healthier. Because your heart doesn’t have to work as hard.
Back in 1987, Japanese doctors discovered that natto contained the answer.
Natto contains a nattokinase – a unique enzyme that dissolves fibrin, a protein key to blood clotting.1 The world finally had a natural answer to the clogged arteries that lead to heart trouble.
In animal studies, nattokinase beat out all challengers in dissolving life-threatening blood clots.2
A 1995 human study proved a nattokinase formula worked in real-life situations.
Doctors pitted a nattokinase formula against a placebo on international flights – notorious for leading to arterial blockages.
Volunteers taking the nattokinase formula had fewer circulation problems than those taking a placebo. 5 out of 150 people taking a placebo had blood flow problems. But none of those taking the active formula did.3
The nattokinase group also suffered less discomfort and fewer swollen ankles.
But that’s just the start.
Lower Your Risk of Blockages
Clear arteries mean healthy blood flow. And nattokinase promotes clear arteries.
In a 2009 study, doctors found taking nattokinase for just 2 months lowered volunteers’ levels of 3 key clotting factors.4
This can help keep blood flowing more freely and ease pressure on blood vessel walls. Nattokinase is so potent, it’s been shown to have this effect after just a single dose!5
Korean doctors also found nattokinase blocks the formation of “rogue” blood clots – and helps promote healthy blood flow with the very first dose.5
Other studies have had similar results. A second Korean team showed nattokinase defends arteries by blocking a build-up of platelets… Which keeps blood “thinner” and flowing more freely.6
As powerful as this may make nattokinase seem, it’s not the only good news.
A Surprise Side Effect
Imagine being able to cut your risk of dangerous blood clots in just a few seconds a day. Being able to boost the free flow of blood throughout your body – to deliver more life-giving nutrients to your cells.
Imagine how rejuvenating that would be!
Now imagine having another heart-healthy benefit as a bonus. What you might call a “side effect.” Well, nattokinase has a big one.
Studies show this little-known enzyme also promotes healthy blood pressure.
In 2008, doctors tested nattokinase on 86 volunteers with high blood pressure. The doctors gave half of them nattokinase. The other half took a placebo.
Then the doctors compared their volunteers’ blood pressure before and after 8 weeks of treatment. There was no change in the placebo group. But the enzyme group saw a dramatic drop in blood pressure.7
A similar study took place in 2016 in the U.S.
Doctors enlisted 79 volunteers with high blood pressure. Again, half the group took nattokinase and half took a placebo. Again, doctors compared the volunteers’ blood pressure before and after 8 weeks of treatment.
And, again, the enzyme group saw big improvements, while the placebo group didn’t.8
Study upon study has shown nattokinase is a boon to heart health. But in the last few years, doctors have started to look at yet another possible benefit.
Clearer Arteries… and a Clearer Mind, Too?
As Americans age, heart trouble ranks as a top fear. Another common worry: a clear mind and memory.
A build-up of proteins – called amyloids – in the brain is linked to brain fog, confusion, and memory problems.
In 2009, scientists in Taiwan used nattokinase to block the build-up of several types of these proteins.9 This wasn’t a human study – or even an animal study. But it was a good first step.
Four years later, researchers in Egypt reported on the next big step.
The scientists added a chemical to their subjects’ diet that created a mental state similar to a common cause of brain fog and memory loss in humans. Then they gave the subjects nattokinase or another enzyme for 45 days.
Daily doses of nattokinase significantly restored the chemical balance in the subjects’ brains… clearing up much of the “brain fog.”10
At this point, we don’t know if nattokinase has the same effect on people. But we do know this common mental condition leads to 10 times more deaths in the U.S. than in Japan!11
Even in this “bonus benefit” doesn’t pan out… you still have plenty of reasons to like nattokinase. Especially since getting it is easier than ever.
From Nasty to Nice in One Easy Swallow
Natto is popular in Japan. But most Westerners don’t find it appetizing.
For one thing, there’s the smell. It’s been compared to dirty socks. Other folks don’t like the sticky texture. Or the “savory” flavor. Plus, you probably won’t find natto in your neighborhood supermarket.
That’s why Best Life Herbals introduced Nattokinase – an easy-to-take daily heart-health supplement. No nasty smell… no icky texture… no unpleasant flavor. And it couldn’t be easier to find.
Just one capsule delivers 50 mg of this powerful heart-health enzyme. It’s as easy as taking a sip of your morning juice.
It’s also easy to enjoy the benefits. Remember those studies I mentioned earlier? They found the enzyme in Nattokinase starts working from day 1. What could be better?
