Neprinol®

Rating: Excellent  

Safety: Excellent 

Efficacy: Excellent 

 

Neprinol, a natural blood thinner far surpasses other blood thinners available on the market. It has undergone extensive clinical research which has more than proven its safety and ability to deliver results. Men and women who have used Neprinol have reported results similar to its pharmaceutical counterparts, but without the typical side effects associated with blood thinners. The editors were astonished, by both its efficacy and safety. Neprinol is made from natural compounds, and is comprised of a potent combination of fibrin-dissolving plant- based enzymes and supporting antioxidants. The systemic enzymes present in Neprinol bear close resemblance to digestive enzymes, but are used throughout the bloodstream to digest solids such as blood clots and fibrin rather than foods in the gastrointestinal tract. Neprinol is composed of Nattokinase, Serratiopeptidase, Rutin, Amla (Indian goose berry) and other proteolytic enzymes which protect our body from excess fibrin. Fibrin is the main components of clots and clotting. In addition to its natural health benefits, Neprinol is an over-the-counter supplement which can be purchased without a prescription and is touted not only as a blood thinner but also as support for the immune system and the treatment of various inflammatory conditions.
