- Clinical Applications
- Supports healthy coagulation of blood within normal levels*
- May enhance fibrinolytic activity, similar to nattokinase*
- Supports healthy blood viscosity within normal levels*
Lumbrokinase derived from earthworms has shown, based on research, to support healthy coagulation of blood within normal levels and boost fibrinolytic activity, i.e. similar to nattokinase.* 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.
