Bromelain as a Natural Anti-Clotting Nutrient

Bromelain is one of the best nutrients known to help dissolve things in your body that should not be there.  It is little surprise that a review of bromelain animal and human studies show that it can help keep your blood from improperly clotting.

The science shows that bromelain inhibits platelets from sticking together while also protecting the walls of arteries.  It has a specific effect on thrombin, helping reduce clotting factors associated with clot formation as well as reduce existing clots.  Unlike the rat poison used by the medical profession, it does not interfere with needed clotting and actually speeds healing.  (more…)


Aging appears to begin between the ages of 27 and 35 when the production of enzymes that dissolve protein begins to diminish. Enzymes are widely recognized for their importance in digesting food. They also break up circulating immune complexes in the blood. Enzymes can act to prevent too much fibrin from being deposited in wounds, fractures and joints. These enzymes also remove necrotic debris and excess fibrin from the blood stream. Immune system regulation can also be accomplished with enzymes. Most of the development of systemic enzyme therapy was carried out in the Far East and Europe. Enzyme therapy is a prime example of a situation in which US medicine is missing the boat due to a lack o of awareness of what the rest of the world is doing and our unwillingness to use therapies not made by “big pharma.” Enzymes can not be patented so they are of little interest to drug companies.

Anti-coagulant Pradaxa Boosts Cardiac Danger

Boehringer Ingelheim GmbH’s anti-coagulant Pradaxa increases a patient’s risk of heart attack or severe chest pain, according to a review of studies conducted on the drug.

An analysis of seven clinical trials found that it was “significantly associated with a higher risk” of heart attacks and acute coronary syndrome, or ACS, a designation that includes heart attacks and chest pain, researchers wrote in a report published today in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Omega-3 fatty acids boost blood thinning therapy

Omega-3 fatty acids boost blood thinning therapyAn article published online on May 26, 2011 in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology reports the discovery of Polish researchers of a benefit for adding the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to standard therapy for heart disease patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (coronary angioplasty).

SerratioPeptidase is a potent anti-inflammatory enzyme

Proteolytic enzymes are specific enzymes that metabolize protein. These enzymes are naturally produced by the human body and other living organisms and help carry out essential functions. Supplementing with these enzymes has shown to have a favorable anti-inflammatory effect on the tissues of the body. A unique enzyme named serratiopeptidase is now emerging as one of the most potent anti-inflammatory supplements. (more…)
