In this article we will be looking at how to clean arteries from plaque, why plaque build-up is the main cause of heart disease and how to prevent plaque forming in the arteries.
During your lifetime your heart will be responsible for pumping around 6,000 litres (1,500 gallons) of blood around the arterial system supplying all the cells with vital nutrients, oxygen, messenger molecules such as neurotransmitters cytokines, hormones, enzymes. Your heart is also responsible for removing all metabolite waste material like carbon dioxide from the cellular area, so you can see why maintaining a healthy heart is of paramount importance to your overall health.
Your heart muscle must work very hard to pump the high volume of blood your body needs each day, the blood is pumped around the body through a complex system of blood vessels (large and small) like arteries, veins and capillaries, there are more than 60,000 miles (1000,000 kilometres) of blood vessels that carry the blood to the cells.
What causes damage to the blood vessels?
There are several issues that contribute to damaging the blood vessels for example:
- The formation of plaque within the blood vessel leading to inflammation
- Free radical increase like molecules and cells (erythrocytes-red cells)
- Microorganisms and metabolites that cause injury to the cardiovascular system
- Glycated haemoglobin losing its vital function in preventing diabetes
- A variety of pollutants that cause many injuries to the cardiovascular system like medications, inhalants and chemicals.
- Low density lipoprotein increase
- Excess weight
- Increase in sugar consumption
These assorted conditions damage the structure and functions of the heart muscle and the blood vessels. Basically, the job of pumping the blood is undermined because of damage done to the endothelial (the inner lining of the blood vessel). One of the main consequences of this damage is a condition known as atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. Atherosclerosis is caused by a build-up of plaque, fatty deposits, cholesterol as well as calcium leading to a narrowing of the blood vessels. This narrowing causes the blood flow to slow to the heart and other vital organs, it can lead to chest pain, a heart attack or stroke as well as several other patho-physiological conditions.
The use of enzymes for cardiovascular health
Nattokinase has been used for many years to support cardiovascular health because it is a fibrinolytic enzyme meaning it can help to clean arteries from plaque.
Where does Nattokinase come from?
Nattokinase is an enzyme produced during the fermentation process of the soybean with Bacillus subtilis. The result of this fermentation process is the production of various molecules which include a proteolytic enzyme (Nattokinase) that causes a certain hydrolytic action (dissolves) on fibrin a blood molecule. Since this discovery the enzyme Nattokinase was isolated and purified further and several studies have demonstrated that
1.Nattokinase acts faster than plasmin
2. It’s benefits last longer in the body
3.Nattokinase is easily absorbed through the intestines straight into the blood
The enzyme has control over hyper coagulation in the body, so it is important that you only use a high quality Nattokinase to clear arteries of plaque.
