Dr Peter McCullough: Nattokinase in the Prevention and Treatment of Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease

Image
Approximately 15% of Americans who took a COVID-19 vaccine have some new medical illness and regret the shot. Many are looking to nattokinase in formulations of Spike protein support supplements asking is it safe, and what is the track record for this Asian discovery? Chen et al reviewed human studies before the pandemic on the use of nattokinase with this introduction: “Natto, a cheese-like food made of soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilis, has been consumed as a traditional food in Asian countries for more than 2000 years. Natto consumption is believed to be a significant contributor to the longevity of the Japanese population.  Recent studies demonstrated that a high natto intake was associated with decreased risk of total CVD mortality and, in particular, a decreased risk of mortality from ischaemic heart diseases. Before the 1980s, very little was known about the mechanism by which natto consumption led to overall cardiovascular health. In 1987, Sumi et al discovered that na

Lumbrokinase vs Nattokinase vs Serrapeptase: What's the Difference?

Image
Lumbrokinase, nattokinase, and serrapeptase are all enzymes that have been studied for their potential health benefits. They are all considered as proteolytic enzymes. Proteolytic enzymes have a variety of roles in the body, from helping to digest food to taking part in the immune response. What is Lumbrokinase? Lumbrokinase (LK) is an enzyme derived from earthworms is thought to aid in blood clot prevention, inflammation reduction, and circulation problems.  Lumbrokinase for Blood Clots Thrombolytic agents typically used to dissolve clots are urokinase (u-PA), streptokinase, and tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA). These drugs, however, are not specific for fibrin and have adverse and dangerous side effects including severe bleeding and heavy blood loss which may result in death. In contrast, LK is very specific to fibrin as a substrate and it does not cause excessive bleeding. It can dissolve the fibrin itself or convert plasminogen to plasmin by inducing endogenous t-PA activity to

10 Foods to Prevent Alzheimer's and Dementia (2023)

A combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors like diet and nutrition are said to be the cause of Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity may also contribute to cognitive decline. These conditions are often affected by the foods you eat. Therefore, practicing good nutrition and eating healthy foods can help reduce your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease as you become older. Alzheimer's and Dementia Difference Source While dementia is a general term, Alzheimer's disease is a specific brain disease. It is marked by symptoms of dementia that gradually get worse over time. Alzheimer's disease first affects the part of the brain associated with learning, so early symptoms often include changes in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. As the disease progresses, symptoms become more severe and include confusion, changes in behavior and other challenges. Who is Most at Risk for Develop

RECODE Protocol for Alzheimer's: Dr Dale Bredesen (2023 Edition)

Alzheimer's disease, which is the most common form of dementia, eventually leads to the inability to carry out even the most basic of bodily functions, such as swallowing or walking. It is ultimately fatal, as conventional treatment options are few and universally ineffective. Dementia vs. Alzheimer’s Disease: What is the Difference? Like autism among children, Alzheimer's among seniors has reached epidemic proportions, with no slowdown in sight. On the contrary, evidence suggests the trend is worsening. In 2022, Alzheimer's affects more than 6 million Americans, 1  and 1 in 3 seniors dies with dementia or other demention. By 2050, Alzheimer's diagnoses are projected to reach 13.8 million. 2 , 3 While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists the disease as the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., 4 , 5  statistics published in the journal Neurology in 2014 revealed Alzheimer's is vastly underreported on death certificate

10 Best Anti-Inflammatory Supplements 2024

Inflammation is the body’s response to harmful stimulus such as injury, infection, or irritation. There are two main types of inflammation ; acute inflammation and chronic inflammation. Acute inflammation usually restores your body to its state before injury or illness. It often resolves in two weeks or less. Symptoms appear quickly.  Chronic inflammation is a slower and milder form of inflammation that usually persists for more than six weeks. Unlike acute inflammation, which occurs in response to an injury or illness, chronic inflammation can occur without any apparent cause and can continue even after the underlying cause has been resolved. It has been linked to several conditions such as autoimmune disorders and prolonged stress. A study published in Nature Medicine  (2019) summarizes the causes of chronic inflammation and its consequences. Some of the most common factors are physical inactivity, obesity, a poor diet, social isolation, psychological stress, and poor sleep. Causes a
