Here's a closer look:
Using a prescription drug, like Warfarin, approaches the problem of fibrin over-production completely differently. Fibrin is a protein in the human body that can accumulate around inflamed areas, as well as the blood stream, causing clotting.
Warfarin may prevent fibrin strands from forming in the first place. However, this prescription drug carries many potentially dangerous and life-threatening side-effects.
• One of the most serious adverse responses to be considered is that Warfarin may cause blood vessels to break down, which can lead to uncontrolled hemorrhaging, or even a stroke.
• Reported complications such as hypotension, dizziness, paralysis, headache, shortness of breath, difficult breathing or swallowing, chest pain, unexplained swelling, weakness or unexplained shock, are also reported side effects of this prescription drug.
• Necrosis of the skin, hypersensitivity, purple toes syndrome, allergic reactions, jaundice, hepatitis, fever, elevated liver enzymes, edema, anemia, rash, dermatitis, angina syndrome, abdominal cramping, bloating, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
The significant difference between Warfarin and Nattokinase, is that Nattokinase is a natural, non-toxic substance that can be taken orally with longer lasting effects. This is because the properties of Nattokinase are closely similar to the clot-dissolving abilities of the biological enzyme plasmin.
It is due to its non-toxicity, that taking a Nattokinase supplement has become highly-valued in the alternative medicine community when a patient is at risk due to fibrin over-production. Because Nattokinase works to dissolve the fibrin that creates the mesh in blood clots, it can be used in the same way as the drugs “Streptokinase” and “Urokinase” that are administered intravenously after a heart attack or stroke. It’s also used as a replacement for daily aspirin therapy, with the additional benefits of supporting the activity of other vital enzymes.
