Nattokinase is a natural enzyme with a potent fibrinolytic (anti-clotting) activity extracted and purified from “Natto”, a food that has been consumed for more than 1,000 years in Asia. The potential health benefits of Nattokinase are numerous: promotes overall cardiovascular and arterial health and helps blood pressure reduction.

 

According to scientific research, only a small amount is needed to provide benefits to the cardiovascular system, which makes it an interesting new alternative not only as a stand-alone product but also in combination with other ingredients.

 

A winning research of the year (Nutraingredients Awards, 2015) indicated that, just one hour after treatment with a single 400mg dose of Longvida®, healthy older participants showed superior performance over placebo on validated tasks relating to attention and working memory. In addition, a 30-day supplementation improved measures of calmness, contentedness and fatigue versus placebo.

The study included 60 participants, and no dropouts or side effects were reported. Furthermore, the authors suggested a possible mechanism by which the effects of Longvida® to support energy were observed in less than one hour.

 

Longvida® contains the natural antioxidant curcumin, optimized by SLCP™ technology for maximum bioavailability into blood and target tissues. It supplies significant levels of free (not glucuronidated or inactivated) curcumin, and this has led to clinically and statistically significant results in clinical trials. Visit our dedicated page to learn more and contact us if you wish
