When your parents and grandparents were young, life moved a much slower pace. There were no satellite connections… no Internet… and no cell phones to keep them constantly connected.
Newspapers kept your grandparents informed. And it could take a full day to get a story out. Your parents relied on television… but events of the day had to wait until the six o’clock news. Or even 11:00 PM.
Today, life comes in a 24-hour barrage. You’re always connected. Changes that used to take weeks, months, or even years, can happen in split seconds. And you’re expected to keep up with it all.
Maybe that’s why it can be so hard to meet all the demands in your life.
In recent years, we’ve heard from many customers looking for a way to relieve the pressure. And we think we’ve hit on the perfect answer. It’s easy, no-stress, and as close to “auto-pilot” as anything that’s ever come along.
Best of all, it helps in sure you get the supplements you depend on to promote optimal health.
Take Nattokinase, for example.
The 1,000-Year-Old Heart Health Champion
Natto is a wildly popular breakfast food in Japan. As you’ll see in a few moments, it may be one of the most important reasons Japanese men die at as low as 1/5th rate from heart problems as men in the U.S.1
One reason for this remarkable difference seems to be a humble enzyme found only in natto.
There are many stories of how natto became part of the Japanese diet. But people widely accept the story of Minamoto no Yoshiie, a great general who lived 1,000 years ago.
According to the story, Minamoto and his officers were in camp one evening. They were boiling soybeans – a common animal feed – for their horses.
Suddenly, someone sounded the alarm. Their enemies had launched an unexpected evening attack. Unprepared, Minamoto and his men had to beat a hasty retreat. One of them dumped the soybeans into a rice-straw sack, and off they rode into the night.
In the morning, they stopped to rest and feed the horses. They noticed the soy had become sticky and sweet. The soy – usually a cattle feed – was so tasty, the hungry officers ate some of it, too.
And thus was born a heart-healthy food that can help defend you from some of the most dangerous heart problems out there.
So how can natto help you?
The Heart Health Enzyme
Natto may date back 1,000 years, but scientists uncovered its secrets much more recently.
What General Minamoto couldn’t have known was combining boiled soy with rice straw had a unique effect. A bacterium in the straw fermented the boiled soy. Which, in turn, led to production of a unique enzyme.
Thus, nattokinase was born.
As we’ll reveal in a few moments, nattokinase has unique effects. But it all goes back to that accident at Minamoto’s camp. Before then, soy simply wasn’t considered a food worthy of humans.
Yet, today, it’s a heart health champ.
The trick is the fermentation process. Before soy is fermented, it contains substances called “anti-nutrients.” Fermentation breaks down most of these substances. And creates a health-promoting one instead.
Because nattokinase has remarkable heart-healthy qualities. If there were a magic wand for heart health, it would be made of this enzyme.
The Home of the Healthiest Hearts on Earth
Japan has one of the healthiest populations on Earth. The Japanese island of Okinawa is home to the world’s longest-lived people. Okinawans regularly live to be 100… and remain healthy and active to the very end.
Heart trouble in particular is far less common in Japan than in the U.S. In fact, until the introduction of Western foods to Japan, Americans were up to 5 times more likely to have heart problems than the Japanese.1
One reason goes back to General Minamoto’s natto. It remains a popular breakfast in Japan to this day. So much of the population there is getting a good dose of nattokinase on a daily basis.
You see, nattokinase lowers the levels of 3 key clotting factors in your blood.
In 2009, doctors in Taiwan gave nattokinase to 3 groups of people. One group was healthy overall. The 2nd group had kidney trouble. The 3rd had heart problems.
The volunteers all took the same amount of nattokinase daily. After 2 months, all 3 groups had lower levels of fibrinogen, factor VII, and factor VIII. The drops were similar in all 3 groups… and none showed serious adverse effects.2
By lowering these three clotting factors, the doctors had also cut the volunteers’ risk of heart trouble. Because lowering levels of these clotting factors allows blood to flow more freely.
And here’s the thing: Millions of Japanese eat natto almost every day. Which means they’re actively encouraging healthy blood flow… and lowering their heart risk. Which helps explain why they have such low rates of heart trouble.
But there’s one problem with natto. To most American’s, it tastes awful.
The Easy Alternative to Eating “Old Socks” for Your Health
Americans usually don’t like natto’s strong smell. I’ve even heard it described as smelling like “old socks.” Not very appetizing.
The texture is also odd for Westerners. Natto is sticky and slimy. So it’s a hard sell, even if it is good for your heart.
What isn’t difficult is swallowing a little pill.
We’ve taken the heart-healthy enzyme out of the natto and deliver it in one easy-to-swallow capsule. No odd smell, no strange texture, but all the goodness of nattokinase.
So you can stick to your fried egg or yogurt and fruit for breakfast and still get the heart-healthy benefits of natto.
And speaking of benefits, nattokinase may offer more than we first thought.
Nattokinase Can Support Heart Health in Other Ways
A small Chinese trial suggests nattokinase may encourage healthy cholesterol levels.
The doctors split 30 volunteers into 2 groups. One group took nattokinase for 8 weeks. The 2nd group took a placebo. Both groups saw drops in their total cholesterol, but the nattokinase group’s drop was larger.
The difference was enough for the doctors to suggest nattokinase and a low-cholesterol diet might be all some folks might need to keep their cholesterol in line.3
In a larger Korean study, volunteers with high blood pressure took either a placebo or nattokinase for 8 weeks.
The placebo group didn’t see any improvements. But both systolic and diastolic blood pressure dropped in the nattokinase group.4
Best Life Herbals’ Nattokinase delivers a full 50 mg of this potent enzyme. It can deliver two other things as well…
