with nutritious natto bacillus, it's an easy, natural way to get healthy
A little-known Japanese soybean dish may just be one of the most nutritious foods on earth. Among its many properties, it is one of the best sources for Vitamin K-2, which supports bone and circulatory health. Natto is a fermented soybean food that has been eaten for centuries in Japan.
Its intense smell and gooey consistency don’t appeal to many westerners, but you don’t have to eat a bowl of natto to obtain its nutritional riches. The bacterium that ferments natto, Bacillus subtilis, is one of the most potent sources of a powerful form of vitamin K, called K-2, ever discovered.
Vitamin K is essential for healthy bone formation and repair; it is involved in the synthesis of osteocalcin, the protein in bone tissue upon which calcium crystallizes.
As Vitamin K helps build bones, it also inhibits calcification of the blood vessels. This “calcium transport” function thereby removes calcium deposits from the vessels where they aren’t needed, and working in conjunction with vitamin D, increases calcium deposits in the bones, where calcium is needed most.
Vitamin K also plays an important role in the intestines, helping to convert glucose into glycogen for storage in the liver.
This highly potent form of Vitamin K-2 has comparable benefits to those of K-1, but has higher circulation concentrations in more varied areas of the body.
Simply stated, it works harder and it stays at work longer, in more parts of the body than K-1.
According to Japanese legend, the renowned Prince Shotoku discovered natto in the early seventh century. On a trip surveying his vast provinces, he wrapped some leftover cooked soybeans in a rice straw mat and hung the bundle in a tree.
It fermented overnight. The prince tasted it— added a bit of salt—and liked the result, thereby discovering natto, one of the most nutritious foods in the world. The nutritive properties are not just from soy or the fermentation process, the key to the bounty of nutrients is the bacillum in rice straw.
Since its discovery by Prince Shotoku, the healthful qualities of natto have become mythologized in Japan. It is the source of a warrior’s power, the samurai’s resilience—a source of longevity, vigor, clear-mindedness, and heart health.
It is eaten today in Japan as a high-power breakfast food, often served with rice, or eaten prepackaged for a quick, nutritious lunch.
