I developed a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) from aggressive chemotherapy in early 1995. I read a study that said that Nattokinase might dissolve my DVT. It took several years for my clot to dissolve but dissolve it did.
I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (afib) in late 2010. I was then diagnosed with chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy in early 2019. I’m pretty sure that my afib was the beginning of my CICM.
My goal now is to manage my CICM as best I can. Every study I’ve read tells me that cardiomyopathy can’t be reversed.
My goal is to fully reverse my CICM but I’ll settle for managing it with evidence-based non-toxic therapies such as nattokinese.
Little did I know that my blood pressure and CICM was being helped by Nattokinase since I’ve been taking it for all these years.
The YouTube video linked below explains how Nattokinase works to lower blood pressure. The guy doing the short video touches on the two most important points.
I use and recommend the same brand of Nattokinase that the YouTube video recommends- Doctor’s Best Nattokinase 2,000 Fu, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Vegan, Supports Cardiovascular and Circulatory Health.

“Hypertension (HTN or HT), also known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure usually does not cause symptoms. Long-term high blood pressure, however, is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, peripheral vascular disease, vision loss, and chronic kidney disease…”
Abstract-The objective of this study was to examine the effects of nattokinase supplementation on blood pressure in subjects with pre-hypertension or stage 1 hypertension…
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 86 participants ranging from 20 to 80 years of age with an initial untreated systolic blood pressure (SBP) of 130 to 159 mmHg received nattokinase (2,000 FU/capsule) or a placebo capsule for 8 weeks…
In conclusion, nattokinase supplementation resulted in a reduction in SBP and DBP. These findings suggest that increased intake of nattokinase may play an important role in preventing and treating hypertension.”
I recommend watching the YouTube video linked above- this is a short video explaining how nattokinase can lower blood pressure.
