Natto NKCP® is an extract of Natto Bacilli Culture (an actual enzyme) and is a food supplement produced from natto fermented soybeans. Natto is consumed widely in Japan and for many centuries has been regarded as beneficial to health, particularly the heart and vascular system.
Natto NKCP is odourless, suitable for vegetarians and contains no Vitamin K or genetically modified ingredients.
One of the features of natto is that it leaves the original nutritional elements of the soybean, which is the raw material, virtually unchanged, but also contains the original nutritional elements produced by the action of Bacillus subtilis natto.
Natto NKCP® is proven to be a safer alternative to daily consumption of Aspirin (used as a blood thinner, but with severe side-effects). In fact, Natto NKCP is used nutritionally for blood pressure-lowering effects, improvement of blood flow, anti-DVT, and clog prevention.

The reason natto itself isn't more popular is fourfold: it has an unpleasant smell and taste; it contains high amounts of vitamin K2, which can interfere with medicines such as Warfarin; the nutrients (enzyme active components) can vary greatly between different natto brands; and it is difficult for Westerners to find.
The Japanese developers of natto NKCP have solved these problems by culturing the natto bacilli (good bacteria) that form during the fermentation process of natto and then extracting only the active enzymes — the nattokinase — before removing the Vitamin K2. The final product is presented in an easy-to-take odourless tablet, so that everyone can now enjoy the benefits of natto. And unlike competing nattokinase brands, the manufacturers of natto NKCP extract the nattokinase during the end of the fermentation cycle, making this brand the most effective and highest quality nattokinase supplement available. And what is more, Natto NKCP can be taken safely and effectively long-term.
