Leading Nattokinase Researcher
Dr. Ralph Holsworth on the Use of Nattokinase
in Combination with Low-Dose Warfarin
“New studies are indicating lower doses of warfarin (Coumadin). I believe a physician should use warfarin and nat-
tokinase together and titrate the warfarin downward to maintain a prothrombin time of 18-20 seconds. This protocol
will decrease the harmful effects of warfarin, while maintaining a safer level of blood anticoagulation with the positive
effects of nattokinase. I suggest this protocol for physicians who are uncomfortable with eliminating warfarin com-
pletely, but who are interested in minimizing the negative effects of warfarin, and achieving the positive effects of nat-
tokinase. This protocol could save thousands of patients from the harmful effects of warfarin.”
