has been a staple of the Japanese diet for over a thousand
years, and has long been valued as a cardiovascular tonic.
In the 1980's, Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi and his colleagues discovered
that a natural enzyme, which they dubbed 'nattokinase,'
is responsible for natto's positive effects. Based on
research showing the cardiovascular benefits of nattokinase,
scientists at the National Enzyme Company set out to
develop a dietary supplement with the same enzymatic
activity. After extensive research, they found what they
were looking for: Nattozime. An all-natural, fungal-derived
enzyme, Nattozime has demonstrated the same activity
found in nattokinase, which makes it a great way to promote
healthy blood flow. And because it has a unique method
of action, Nattozime works great with other heart-health
supplements. Each capsule of Swanson Ultra
Nattozime provides 1,000 fibrinolytic units (FU) of enzymatic activity."
