    Author(s): Ishan Ghosh and Mohit GandhiIshan Ghosh and Mohit Gandhi

    The primary objective of this in vitro study was to evaluate if select natural remedies bromelain, nattokinase, and serrapeptase, have an effect on the clotting time of bovine plasma. The formation of blood clots within the body can lead to fatal diseases such as stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, and deep vein thrombosis [1]. Although various drugs with anticoagulant properties are commercially available for treatment of such conditions, these drugs come with various side-effects which could pose significant health risk, when used for a prolonged period [2]. My hypothesis was select natural remedies (bromelain, nattokinase, and serrapeptase) have anticlotting abilities; in addition, when two of the natural remedies were used simultaneously the clotting time of the bovine plasma would have a more significant increase. In this study, activated Partial Thromboplastin Tim.. View More»
