Since 1992, lumbrokinase derived from earthworms has been extensively studied and used in China. Research has shown lumbrokinase to support healthy coagulation of blood within normal levels and enhance fibrinolytic activity, i.e. similar to nattokinase.*
|Serving Size: 2 Capsules||Amount Per Serving|

Other Ingredients: Rice dextrin, medium-chain triglycerides, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, water, gellan gum.
As a dietary supplement, 1 or 2 capsules in the morning, 1 or 2 capsules in the afternoon, and 2 capsules at bedtime, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Take with 8-10 oz of water, with or without food. Use under medical supervision if taking anticoagulant drugs. Contraindicated in any conditions associated with bleeding.
The lumbrokinase group of proteolytic enzymes, extracted from Lumbricus rubellus, includes plasminogen activator and plasmin. The plasminogen activator (e-PA) in lumbrokinase is similar to tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) from other sources, which makes it possible to show the thrombolytic activity only in the presence of fibrin.* Therefore, lumbrokinase has the advantage of not causing excessive bleeding.*
