Nattokinase (pronounced nuh-TOH-kin-ayss) is an enzyme extracted and purified from a Japanese food called nattō. Nattō is produced by fermentation by adding the bacterium Bacillus natto, which also produces the enzyme, to boiled soybeans. While other soy foods contain enzymes, it is only the nattō preparation that contains the specific nattokinase enzyme.
Nattokinase is sold as a dietary supplement. It can now be produced by recombinant means and in batch culture, rather than relying on extraction from nattō.
The Nattokinase Powder Wega offered is from Taiwan, China that bacteria identified and manufactured in a GMP facility to optimize its unique health benefits, 100% pure and authentic material.
For US market, FSMA FSVP documentation is available in place to be compliance with the FDA requirements.
