Fibrinogen is a compound, produced by your body, that promotes clotting.
Normal Fibrinogen levels are healthy as they prevent you from bleeding to death when you’re cut. Elevated levels, however, can increase risk of heart attack, stroke, or deep vein thrombosis.
Nattokinase is an enzyme found in certain fermented foods that may help to lower elevated fibrinogen levels and normalize risk associated with high fibrinogen.
Researchers found that 2,000 fu of nattokinase twice daily dropped fibrinogen levels in healthy subjects by 7-10%.
Future studies may determine if this drop in fibrinogen is associated with decreases in risk of heart attack or stroke
Recommended dose is 2,000 fu two to three times daily in people at high risk of heart attack or stroke
