View larger Product Profile Natto is a traditional Japanese food consisting of soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilis. Its history traces back over 1,000 years, with over 200,000 tons being consumed in Japan during 2008 alone. As a food, natto is viscous and odiferous in a way that may be expected of a fermented product. Health-wise, there are two important constituents often associated with natto - vitamin K2 (in the form of MK-7), and nattokinase, a fibrin-dissolving enzyme. One of vitamin Kâ€™s most prominent roles is assisting with blood-clotting by helping to produce clotting-factors. Nattokinase, however, is involved in the opposite process. This is sometimes the conundrum with natto. In fact, many health practitioners rightly advise patients taking blood-thinning medication to avoid natto due to the vitamin K content. This is despite the support nattokinase may offer in helping balance clot formation and degradation.* Others with soy allergies, or those who simply have a distaste for natto, cannot access the health benefits of natto. Fortunately, Jarrow Formulas NattoMax provides purified nattokinase that is both free-from vitamin K and safe for people with soy allergies.

Without it, a minor cut could lead to an untimely demise. At the center of this process is fibrin, a fibrous protein produced by an enzyme, thrombin, which is activated when the body senses clotting is required. Upon healing the fibrin is covered over by normal tissue, while another set of proteins (e. g. plasmin) helps to dissolve the now unnecessary fibrin. This is the normal process at the site of a wound, but as we age, or under certain physiological conditions, the ability to dissolve fibrin tends to fall out of balance with the abi...

Probiotics Promote Intestinal Wellness Probiotics are the healthy flora that reside in our digestive tract. These organisms support regularity, aid the immune system, produce vitamins like B and K, and fuel our digestion through their production of enzymes, including lactase, protease, and amylase. The enzymes made by the flora work synergistically with our own inherent enzymes to support optimal wellbeing and digestive health. TherActive Delivery Probiotics are active cultures which must make their way through various obstacles in their journey to the gastrointestinal tract. These live organisms then take up residence and provide benefits. First, they must stand up to the exposure to light, heat and moisture on the shelf. After consumption, they must withstand harsh stomach acid and other digestive fluids. Digest Gold + Probiotics combines Enzymedica's award winning digestive enzyme formula with 500 million cultures of specially coated (TherActive) probiotics. This delivery system is not an encapsulation process - it is a coating that allows for maximum performance and preservation of probiotics. Superior to standard time release mechanisms, TherActive delivery ensures release in the alkaline pH of the lower intestine, guaranteeing potency, delivering healthy bacteria into the intestinal tract for optimal benefit.
