Fibrin: Overview Purpose in the Body, Natural Approaches to Supporting Healthy Function

Fibrin, it its proper function, is necessary to life. A protein that the body uses to clot blood at the site of a wound, fibrin is actually a natural product of the healthy inflammatory response. In some people, due to genetic predisposition or an ongoing inflammatory state, the body may produce unneeded fibrin.

This excess fibrin is not useful in the bloodstream. A healthy body will naturally dissolve the excess fibrin, thereby keeping blood flow open and unobstructed. Sometimes, the body benefits from a little extra support for this natural process of dissolving and excreting excess fibrin. There are natural sources of fibrinolytic (fibrin-dissolving) enzymes that may be taken orally to support this process.*
