This was done on request by me to a friend who I collaborate with with on all matters of health he has done a couple of pieces of research for me

These are some of the research journals and videos relating to natto and Vitamin K2 and its benefits

Impinging on Gene Expression


Why is protein important so important during the menopause;

The amino acids from protein are essential for the structure, function, and regulation of almost all biological processes from maintaining and repairing tissues, producing hormones and enzymes to supporting the immune system. As we age, we encounter sarcopenia (the decline of muscle tissue). Eating enough protein can help support muscles and prevent muscle loss. This helps maintain strength and metabolism (muscles are more metabolically active than fat tissue) which means they require more energy (calories) to maintain and support overall health

Natto Protein

Natto contains a number of beneficial enzymes and Nutrients It contains more proteins, cellulose, calcium, iron, potassium and vitamin B2 than soybeans, especially more cellulose, calcium, iron and potassium than eggs. Japanese researchers learned that soy proteins are insoluble. After being made into natto, they become soluble and produce amino acids. Natto contains 18 amino acids, of which eight are essential amino acids. Natto is rich in vitamins, including vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin E and vitamin K. The content of vitamin B and vitamin E is higher than that of soybeans, especially the content of vitamin B2 is more than six times of that in soybeans. alongside one pot of natto contains approximately 20g of protein.

Nattokinase (NK) is the most important active substances of natto and it has significant advantage in dissolving blood clots, which has set off a wave of in-depth research on natto and made outstanding achievements (Gallelli et al., 2021).
