        Natto is fermented soybeans that is a traditional Japanese staple for more than 1,000 years. Recently its medical benefits are widely recognized in Japan resulting in its increased popularity. Some of its beneficial effects are prevention of heart attacks, strokes, cancer, osteoporosis, obesity and intestinal disease caused by pathogens. Some of the effects are attributed to its soybean origin.

        However, bacillus natto produces various enzymes, vitamins, amino acids and other nutrients unique to natto during its natto fermentation. It is these unique elements that give natto its distinctive health and medical benefits. Notably nattokinase and pyrazine prevent or resolve blood clot. They prevent heart attacks and strokes that are the leading cause of death after cancer in North America.

        Soybeans are said to be the most complete nutritious crop. In Japan it is known as "meat, grown in a field, without detriments of meat." Incidentally natto provides Vitamin B12 that tends to lack in vegetarian diet. In addition, inexpensive soybeans can be grown even on barren land. It fixes nitrogen in the soil with the help of root nodule bacteria (leguminous bacteria). Accordingly it holds the possibility to lessen the world food crises.

          Yeah, its me!

          I love natto sushi at Sushi Tei and natto ramen. Natto is fermented beans which has a sticky texture. However, it has a slight bitter taste which you have to get used to.

                        no problem. I think I saw sealed packets as ingredients that you can bring home.

                        I love natto!
