Lumbrokinase is a fibrinolytic enzyme extracted from Boluoke, with a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Lumbrokinase works by breaking down fibrinogen, which is a protein that can accumulate in blood vessels and inhibit proper circulation. Lumbrokinase also has antithrombotic properties, helping to prevent blood cells from sticking together.
Lumbrokinase is becoming a popular supplement for supporting healthy circulation and cardiovascular health. Double Wood’s Lumbrokinase supplement is quite potent and is standardized to 10,000 FU per gram.
Caution should be taken by those with bleeding disorders as Lumbrokinase has mild blood-thinning properties, and it should not be combined with other blood thinners or used within 2 weeks of a surgery.
