Nattokinase & Serrapeptase
Been reading and coming across information on nattokinase and serrapeptase over the years. I even bought some serrapeptase but stopped taking it after reading some warnings about it.

What are these exactly ... other than just systemic enzymes? Are they basically alike from made from different sources or are they totally different products or brand names that do the same things?

I have some links:

Are either worth taking or are they just hype? Are they worth considering or not worth the risk? Would appreciate your thoughts and insight, James.

They are both proteolytic enzymes derived from different sources. Nattokinase is derived from a fermented food called natto. Serrapeptase is derived from a bacteria originally isolated from silkworm intestines.

Nattokinase though is used to help dissolve fibrinogen making it useful as a blood thinner and for dissolving blood clots and scar tissue. Serrapeptase is used primarily for pain and inflammation.

Whether or not they are worth using depends on what you plan to use them for.

I bought the Serrapeptase for pain and inflammation and the nattokinase seems like it would be a great natural blood thinner for hubby instead of that nasty Plavix. He has that 'medicated stent' and now with the triple bypass ... docs are saying he HAS TO stay on Plavix to keep the stent from making his blood clot around it [the stent] since it is a 'foreign object' and it has a medicated coating on it. His arteries seem to be clogging pretty fast for some reason. He had stopped taking the Plavix but got a mega dose many days in a row prior to the bypass and it took the docs an hour and a half to stop the bleeding after surgery because of that.

So you think there is no 'danger' in either product? That they'd both be safe to try? Could they both be taken together since they have different purposes?

No.

Yes.

Yes.

As for the arteries plugging so fast one of the best things that can be done is the lecithin granules, which helps make the arterial plaque water soluble for removal. Silica, vitamin C sources and TMG are also beneficial.
