The Power of Natto
Reasons why we should all eat natto. So what if it is stinky and slippery. Read the part about preventing senility.
Our #1 killer has now been hunted down and stopped by Dr. David Williams.
Dr. David Williams has scoured the planet and returned with solutions to virtually every common health problem.
High cholesterol does not cause heart attacks or strokes, and lowering your cholesterol will not give you an ounce of protection from either one.
Until now, if you had a heart attack or stroke, and if you were fortunate enough to make it to a hospital within a few minutes, the emergency room staff could often help. They could immediately inject you with a very expensive clot-busting super-drug to temporarily alleviate the blockage and hopefully limit the damage. But at $20,000 per catheterized I.V. dose, this miracle drug isn’t in every hospital…and you won’t know whether yours has it until it’s too late. Dr. Hiroyuki Sumi of Japan and his team of researchers recently made a ground-breaking discovery:
They found that a 100 gram dose of a traditional Japanese food called “natto” exhibits the same clot-busting activity as a $20,000 therapeutic dose of that super-drug. But while the drug is effective for only 4 to 20 minutes, the enzyme in natto maintains its activity for 4 to 8 hours.
They have discovered the world’s only natural clot buster. And that, my friend, makes natto, The Discovery of the Century.
Heart attacks and strokes are caused by blood clots. Plaque plays a huge role, but the most current research shows that plaque leads to blood clots, which are the real heart stoppers.
Here’s what happens.
Despite having the same name, the plaque in your arteries is not at all like the crust your dental hygienist scrapes off your teeth. Arterial plaque is made up of oxidized LDL and other fats that glob together and penetrate the inner lining of your artery wall.
New research also indicates that plaque doesn’t actually coat the artery wall, it resides inside the wall. As it grows it can eventually rupture, causing a blood clot. If the clot floats downstream and blocks the flow of blood to your heart you have a myocardial infarction, aka a heart attack. If it hits your brain, you have a stroke. Natto stops both cold.
Plaque is a toxic mixture of fats that festers and grows beneath a thin layer of cells. As it grows it gradually impedes blood flow. When it becomes inflamed it ruptures, causing a blood clot. When a clot gets lodged in a vessel in your heart or your brain, it blocks the blood flow and causes a heart attack or stroke.
Natto increases circulation even through restricted arteries, breaks up clots, and keeps this from happening.
The Japanese Secret for Heart Disease
So, why haven’t you heard of natto? Because a simple, inexpensive, unpalatable Japanese remedy has no chance of breaking through the medical establishment’s iron curtain.
For years, the pharmaceutical companies have been getting millions of people hooked on ineffective and downright dangerous blood thinners and cholesterol-lowering drugs– and getting millions of doctors hooked on the profits and perks that come from prescribing these drugs.
What would they get for prescribing natto? Nothing but a lot less business from a lot healthier patients.
Historically, the Japanese have had dramatically less heart disease and greater longevity. These statistics have been used to illustrate the benefits of eating more fish. But this recent research on natto shows
what is probably an even greater factor in Japanese longevity.
The potent enzyme in natto prevents clots from forming. Not only major clots caused by ruptured plaque, but the thousands of tiny clots and blood-sludge that are the result of a natural, age-related decrease in your body’s production of clot-busting enzymes.
But what’s even more astonishing, it not only prevents future clots, it dissolves existing clots–safely, naturally, and effectively. Dr. Sumi’s research has given us the “magic bullet” clot buster we’ve all been praying for.
I hope you’re beginning to see the staggering implications of this.
Never before have you been able to boost your circulation so safely and naturally, restoring it to the healthy pace of an 18-year-old’s. Now, rather than waiting for an emergency infusion of a clot-busting super-drug, a very inexpensive daily amount of natto will keep you out of the emergency room in the first place.
Plus, it will help protect you from a host of other problems related to impaired circulation, including macular degeneration, senility, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and others too numerous to name here.
Circulation is the single biggest factor in determining your lifelong health or early demise, and natto is your #1 best method for keeping your blood flowing as strong as the Nile until the day you die of something other than any circulatory disease.
Googled it –
It is often said in Japan that natto is good for one’s health, and these claims can be backed by medical research. One example is Pyrazine contained within natto. Pyrazine is a compound which, in addition to giving natto its distinct smell, reduces the likelihood of blood clotting. It also contains aserine protease type enzyme called nattokinase which may also reduce blood clotting both by direct fibrinolysis of clots, and inhibition of the plasma protein plasminogen activator inhibitor 1. This may help to avoid thrombosis, as for example in heart attacks, pulmonary embolism, or strokes. An extract from natto containing nattokinase is available as a dietary supplement. Studies have shown that oral administration of nattokinase in enteric capsules leads to a mild enhancement of fibrinolytic activity in rats and dogs. It is therefore plausible to hypothesize that nattokinase might reduce blood clots in humans, although clinical trials have not been conducted. Another study suggests the FAS in natto is the substance which initiates fibrinolysis of clots, which accelerates the activity of not only nattokinase but urokinase.
Natto also contains large amounts of Vitamin K, which is involved in the formation of calcium-binding groups in proteins, assisting the formation of bone, and preventing osteoporosis. Vitamin K1 is found naturally in seaweed, liver and some vegetables, while vitamin K2 is found in fermented food products such as cheese and miso. Natto has very large amounts of vitamin K2, approximately 870 micrograms per 100 grams of natto.
According to a study fermented soybeans, such as natto, contains Vitamin PQQ, which is very important for the skin. PQQ existing in human tissues is derived mainly from diet.
According to the recent studies, polyamine suppresses excessive immune reactions, and natto contains a much larger amount of it than any other food.Dietary supplements containing the substances extracted from natto such as polyamine, nattokinase, FAS and vitamin K2 are available.
Natto also contains many chemicals alleged to prevent cancer, as for example daidzein, genistein, isoflavone, phytoestrogen, and the chemical elementselenium. However, most of these chemicals can also be found in other soy bean products, and their effect on cancer prevention is uncertain at best. Recent studies show natto may have a cholesterol-lowering effect.
Natto is also said to have an antibiotic effect, and its use as medicine against dysentery was researched by the Imperial Japanese Navy before World War II.
Natto is claimed to prevent obesity, possibly due to a low calorie content of approximately 90 calories per 7-8 grams of protein in an average serving. Unverified claims include improved digestion, reduced effects of aging, and the reversal of hair loss in men due to its phytoestrogen content, which can lower testosterone that can cause baldness. These conjectured physiological effects of eating natto are based on biochemically active contents of natto, and have not been confirmed by human study.
Natto is also sometimes used as an ingredient of pet food, and it is claimed that this improves the health of the pets.
