Is Doctor;s Best Nattokinase non-GMO?
Yes, it is non-GMO.
How are Nattokinase enzymes measured?
Enzymes are not measured in milligrams, but rather in ‘active’ units. A 1000mg capsule with low enzymatic activity would be worthless. Doctor’s Best Nattokinase veggie capsule contains 2000 FU (fibrinolytic activity)per capsule. This is a very high amount of activity.
How should I take Doctor's Best Nattokinase?
The best way to take Nattokinase is on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and just before bedtime (if your stomach has no food in it). The reason why we don't want your stomach to have food in it is because it would activate the Nattokinase. It is an enzyme so if it meets food it will activate and digest the food. What we want it to do is to activate in the lower intestine where it gets taken up into the blood stream and it is there where we want it to start digesting the 'dead proteins' to help with your circulation. Please take it with a room temperature glass of water not juice and never take it out of the capsule.
How is Nattokinase produced?
Natto is produced by a fermentation process by adding the bacteria Bacillus subtilis to boiled soybeans. The resulting Nattokinase enzyme is produced when Bacillus subtilis acts on the soybeans. While other soy foods contain enzymes, it is only the natto preparation that contains the specific Nattokinase enzyme.
