Why is healthy blood flow important to your physical well-being?
When your red and white blood cells and platelets coagulate into a gelatin-like mass, you have a blood clot. And when this blood clot blocks the flow of blood throughout your body, the stage is set for a health disaster that could affect your brain, heart, lungs or other organs.
Unfortunately, close to 100,000 people in the United States—nearly one out of three—who develop blood clots each year die from them.
But an all-natural nutrient can help protect against the formation of clots and keep your blood flowing freely.
Natural blood thinner nattokinase could nix blood clots
Nattokinase—or natto—was first discovered by American soldiers during the United States occupation of Japan in 1946. It was a fermented cheese-like food made from soybeans that the Japanese people enjoyed.
However, because it smelled strange and seemed to them unsanitary in its preparation, the U.S. Army would not allow the Japanese or American soldiers to eat it.
But while conducting a test in 1980 to find blood clot-dissolving compounds in foods, a Japanese scientist rediscovered natto’s amazing “clot-busting” benefits.
Natto was used by Samurai warriors centuries ago
This natural enzyme—made by adding the beneficial bacteria Natto Bacillus to boiled soybeans to create a fermented cheese-like food—was originally discovered more than 1,000 years ago by Samurai warriors. Natto has been used for centuries in traditional Japanese medicine for poor circulation, weak hearts, fatigue and other health problems.
According to multiple scientific studies, nattokinase not only can help prevent dangerous blood clots from forming and help safely dissolve existing blood clots to prevent clogged arteries, but it can also help…
- Improve your circulation
- Prevent cold hands and feet
- Relieve leg pain and cramps
- Decrease varicose veins
- Improve dull thinking or brain “fog”
- Provide blood pressure relief
- Boost low energy levels
These benefits of the “stinky cheese” remedy can be obtained through eating the natto food itself or by taking a quality supplement containing the natto enzyme.
By improving the blood circulation throughout your body, the natural blood thinner natto can make all the difference to the overall health of your body.
