Protocol for Life Balance, Nattokinase, 100 mg, 60 VcapsWrite a Review
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Nattokinase is an enzyme isolated from Natto, a traditional Japanese fermented soy food. Natto has been consumed safely for thousands of years for its numerous health benefits. More recently, both clinical and non-clinical studies have demonstrated that Nattokinase supports heart health and supports healthy circulation. Each serving of Nattokinase provides 2000 FU (Fibrinolytic Units) to help keep already healthy levels of blood clotting factors within a normal range.
Natto is a food that has been use in Japanese culture for over 1000 years for its numerous health benefits. Natto is made through a fermentation process by adding Bacillus natto, a useful bacterium, to boiled soybeans, resulting in the production of the Nattokinase enzyme.
Enzymes are biochemical catalysts and without them life could not exist. Nattokinase is a systemic enzyme that can be absorbed from the digestive tract and used by the body. Nattokinase is so useful that it has been referred to as the "Enzyme of Enzymes".
In recent years, Nattokinase has been the subject of at least 17 scientific studies. These clinical and non-clinical studies have demonstrated that Nattokinase supports heart health, promotes healthy circulation, and helps to keep already healthy levels of blood clotting factors within a normal range.
Nattokinase activity is often expressed in Fibrinolytic Units, a term indicating its relative potency. Each serving of Protocol for Life Balance Nattokinase provides 2000 FU (Fibrinolytic Units).
