Systemic enzyme formulas, like Neprinol AFD from Arthur Andrew Medical, contain a blend of enzymes that specifically address fibrin levels in the body. The inherent fibrin removal process is accomplished by naturally occurring enzymes in the body, principally plasmin. Plasmin is an important enzyme, present in the blood, that degrades many blood plasma proteins, most notably fibrin clots.
The degradation of fibrin is termed fibrinolysis. Plasmin is also our own natural blood thinner responsible for maintaining normal blood solvency by removing unnecessary accumulated protein. The normal process of fibrinolysis can be enhanced by introducing fibrinolytic (fibrin lysing) enzymes.
Serrapeptase is an exceptional fibrinolytic enzyme, able to digest and liquefy large amounts of fibrotic scar tissue. This dissolved tissue may accumulate over time, thickening the blood, making it necessary to include the potent enzyme Nattokinase. This enzyme, produced by bacillus Natto, is actually much more potent than plasmin itself and will help modulate blood viscosity by dissolving these lysed tissue cells.
