Boluoke® (Lumbrokinase)

What is Lumbrokinase?

Lumbrokinase is an enzyme also known as a fibrinolytic. Fibrinolytic dissolves fibrin which is a protein in your blood that creates clots; either blood clots inside or scabs on the outside of your skin.  

Who produces the best Lumbrokinase?

Canada RNA manufactures a lumbokinase preparation that has been studied extensively in China and Japan. The product is called BoloukeThe manufacturer produces evidence from a study, showing that their preparation of lumbrokinase measures stronger in fibrinolytic strength as compared to the nattokinase product (another enzyme for dissolving fibrin). The manufacturer points out that their preparation of lumborkinase, Bolouke, has been clinically tested and proven safe to be used in conjunction with aspirin, heparin or Coumadin.



When should I take Boluoke?

Here's My Story:
     I had heard and read that people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lyme disease and other immune/inflammatory disorders have “thick blood,” but I had not explored that in my own body. 
     So, a few years ago, when I developed a sheath clot from my elbow to my clavicle and then a week later I got a shorter clot in my other arm I took Coumadin and tried to find the thereuptic dose for 4 weeks, as directed by my doctor.  I even stopped eating dark leafy greens because of the interaction that they can have with blood thinning medications like Coumadin.  I also started taking high dose fish oil, nattokinase, and vitamin E. 
     After 4 weeks I had a follow-up ultra sound to see if the clots have dissolved or moved...  

     NOTHING !

      NOTHING had happened.  I was so frustrated because I was sick of changing doses of Coumadin and having my blood checked 3 times per week via the veins in my hands.  OUCH!!!   
     So, I started taking Boluoke at the highest dose recommended even though Boluoke is fairly expensive and I didn’t know very much about it.  I didn’t feel any different and I still had some swelling in my arm with the sheath clot.  
     But sure enough,  later when I went for a follow up ultrasound…..
No clots.  No residual.  Nothing. 
     I was able to go off Coumadin with the help of my doctor and  I start eating dark leafy greens immediately!
Well worth it!

Why should I take Canada RNA  Boluoke® (Lumbrokinase)?

     “Imitation products are likely just earthworm protein extract containing little pure lumbrokinase or lumbrokinase of low enzymatic strength. Some companies are making products with 230mg to 250mg of lumbrokinase per capsule and trying to quote Boluoke®’s research as their own. Boluoke®’s capsules are of 200mg in size, and contain 20mg of lumbrokinase inside each capsule. Most of these other lumbrokinase are unable to distinguish between the weight of the capsule (i.e. 250 mg) and the active lumbrokinase per capsule (Boluoke® is 20 mg).”

     In plain English: When you buy other lumbrokinase products, you are NOT assured a specific dose of the enzyme. You are basically getting an earthworm protein and enzyme stew. The enzyme portion could be high or low. Boluoke guarantees that you are getting 20mg of active enzyme per capsule. According to Canada RNA, Bolouke should be taken at the dose of 1 capsule one to three times daily 30 minutes before the meal. Each capsule of Bolouke contains 20mg of standardized lumbrokinase extract. Also Bolouke should not be taken at the same time as other enzyme supplements because the Bolouke may be rendered ineffective by the other enzymes’ actions.
