  • Nattokinase Supplement for Plaque Reduction and Increasing HDL-C

    I've run across Nattokinase quite a bit recently in my readings. Naturally, it peaked my interested and I ran across this study out of China. The results of this study seem to be impressive. Natto is a Japanese food that is essentially fermented soybeans. Has anyone ever used this or have any further information/resources as to it's effectiveness?

      sthubbar--good article. NK sounds like it has a lot of potential and should be ok as long as you aren't on blood thinners or something with a similar effect. If nothing else it sounds like incorporating Natto into a diet would be beneficial. I hear it is difficult to find, and is definitely a 'love it' or 'hate it' food.

        You can find it at any Japanese grocery store and almost all Asian grocery stores. If you try it and like it, you can make it at home, if you're into that kind of thing. That's what we do. Also, while natto is effectively soybeans in practice, you can ferment many different kinds of legumes with the same probiotic.

          Interesting. It's too bad that they didn't have one extra arm of the study taking both a statin and nattokinase in order to see whether those two together were additive or not.

            Hi there, I am new to this forum, and I have lots to learn. On the subject of Natto, I have been buying Natto online for a couple of years. I am still getting used to the taste, but I do like it. I am sure there are many reputable places to purchase online if you do not have access to where you live. I have bought my Natto at https://www.meguminatto.com/order.html. The runs about $56-60.00 for about 12 small containers. They keep well in the freezer until I want one for dinner. I also just started taking the supplement Nattokinase with Serratiopeptidase approx 150 mg daily because I am trying to stay very low carb/ketogenic and It has for every ounce or 28 gm has 2.5 net carbs / or 4.9 total carbs if that is what you count. I usually have I think about 2 ounces/ 56 gm which has placed me over my daily carb limit. I will still eat it from time to time, but will most like continue taking the supplement amongst other supplements since finding out I have an elevated CAC score of 71 and my LDL small particle count of almost 1800 with a very strong family history with siblings under the age of 50 of early death from CVD. I will turn 60 in 3 weeks and want to reverse my legacy of heart disease and improve my health anyway I can. I am glad I found Dr. Brewer's You tube videos. Have a great and healthy rest of your weekend.
