Frequently Asked Questions

Fibrin & Fibroids

What is fibrin?

Fibrin is an insoluble protein that the body normally produces only in response to bleeding or inflammation. Fibroids occur when excess fibrin forms on or around the uterus.

What are fibroids?

Fibroids are growths of excess fibrin that occur in and around the uterus. Fibroids often run in families and their occurance may have a genetic component.

What causes fibroids?

The root cause of fibroids is not known, but it is believed that hormones (estrogen and progestorone) and genetics both play a roll.

What causes fibroids to grow?

Fibroid growth seems to be regulated by estrogen and progestorone as they can grow rapidly when those hormone levels are high and will usually stop growing and sometimes shrink when hormone levels decline.

What types of fibroids are there?

Fibroids can occur inside the uterine wall (intramural), outward from the uterine wall into the abdominal area (subserous), and inward from the uterine wall (submucous).

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms of fibroids can vary in number and degree and can include swollen or bloated abdomen; heavy bleeding and prolonged and/or painful periods; excessive blood clots during menses; anemia; spotting between periods; pelvic pressure; frequent urination; back pain; and pain during intercourse. In some cases fibroids can make it difficult to become pregnant.

Why do fibroids make my stomach look larger?

The fibroids are partially responsible but abdominal swelling can also be exacerbated by excess fibrin in the uterine wall which causes inflammation and fluid build-up.

Why do I need to urinate so frequently?

Fibroids can impinge on bladder capacity depending on their size and position.

Are fibroids causing my constipation?

They could be. Fibroids can be positioned such that they press on the colon which can interfere with normal bowel function.

Could fibroids be causing my backaches?

Yes. Backaches are a common complaint of women who suffer with fibroids.

Fibrovan action & ingredients

What is Fibrovan?

Fibrovan is an all-natural and hormone-free capsule formulated to quickly and safely increase the body's inherent fibrinolytic activity to help degrade excess fibrin that causes fibroids.

How long has Fibrovan been on the market?

Fibrovan was introduced by Komodo Nutraceuticals in 2004. We now have Fibrovan customers in over 100 countries and are trusted by thousands of women worldwide.

How does Fibrovan work?

Fibrovan works by boosting your body's ability to degrade excess fibrin buildup which leads to fibroids.

What are Fibrovan's ingredients?

Fibrovan is made up of EGCG and Lycopene (two powerful anti-oxidants) and a patented form of Nattokinase called Nattokinase NSP2™. We adhere to the FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) which ensure that all of our ingredients meet quality standards and are free from any contamination so you can be confident in their strength and purity.

How do you ensure the quality of ingredients?

Every lot of Fibrovan is submitted for analysis to an independent laboratory where it's tested for microbiological contamination and then fingerprinted with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). HPLC involves separating the components of a mixture to identify and verify the potency of the constituent ingredients.

Is all nattokinase equally effective?

No. Nattokinase can be formulated multiple ways. Our patented Nattokinase NSP2™ is manufactured according to GMP standards and is specially designed to be heat-stable which ensures that it won't break down prematurely.

No. Fibrovan is a natural supplement and is available without a prescription.

Using Fibrovan

How much should I take?

Take one capsule three times per day with 8 ounces of water. While it's not necessary that Fibrovan be taken with food, it is often easiest to time the doses in that manner.

How soon will I notice results?

Results will depend on the severity of symptoms but most women notice improvement in the first one to two months with continued progress in subsequent months.

How long will I need to take Fibrovan?

Some women take Fibrovan for a few months at a time as symptoms occur and some women stay on it continually. If you're body is prone to making excess fibrin then the unfortunate reality is that it may need ongoing management.

How will I know it's working?

How can I tell if Fibrovan is working?

The simplest way to tell whether Fibrovan is working is to track the frequency and severity of your symptoms and note the difference while on Fibrovan.

Will I feel uncomfortable?

Maybe. Some women report mild cramping initially (if this occurs, you can reduce the dosage to one capsule per day until it resolves). In addition, you may feel a little extra swelling in your abdomen. This is normal and will resolve as your body works to rid your system of the excess fibrin.

Where does the fibrin go?

As your body degrades abnormal fibrin it is processed by the body as waste and is naturally expelled in the urine and with the normal menstrual flow.

Will I notice any change in my urine?

Maybe. Some women do report a slightly darkened urine when taking Fibrovan as the body flushes the excess fibrin.

Will my periods by heavier?

They might at first. Some women do notice a more watery flow during the first cycle or two. This is temporary and is a result of your body processing the excess fibrin.

Will I see any spotting between periods?

You may. Some women do notice a mild spotting during their first couple cycles. This is a transient issue and happens as your abnormal fibrin is broken down and flushed from your system.

Will Fibrovan shrink my swollen stomach?

If the swollen stomach is due to underlying fibroids then you will notice it resolving as your body naturally breaks down the fibrin in your fibroid(s).

Why do I sometimes feel more swollen in my abdomen when taking Fibrovan?

As fibrin is deteriorated by your system you may notice a slight increase in abdominal swelling or firmness. This is temporary and a sign that your immune system is working to degrade the fibrin composing your fibroid(s).

Does Fibrovan affect fibrocycstic breast lumps?

Yes. Fibrocystic breast lumps have the same underlying structure as uterine fibroids and are degraded by the same processes.

Will I notice any tenderness or swelling in my breast?

Maybe. If you have abnormal fibrin deposits in your breasts they will be affected in the same way as uterine fibroids.

Large and/or multiple fibroids

Will Fibrovan work if I have a very large fibroid?

Yes. Fibrovan boosts your body's ability to break down fibrin in small & large fibroids alike.

Is Fibrovan effective with multiple fibroids?

Yes. Fibrovan helps your body degrade excess fibrin whether it's associated with on fibroid or many.

Menopause

Is Fibrovan effective for women nearing, in, or past menopause?

Yes, and they may notice results more quickly as the reproductive hormones that contribute to fibroid growth naturally decline.

What if I'm undergoing hormone therapy?

Since estrogen and progesterone contribute to fibroid growth, you may see slower results than you otherwise would.

Will Fibrovan work if my periods have become irregular or ceased altogether?

Yes. Fibrovan will still help your body break down excess fibrin and will be aided by the fact that your reproductive hormones will be moderating.

Will I notice any bleeding or spotting while taking Fibrovan?

Perhaps. Some women do report minor spotting for a short time when starting Fibrovan.

How will I know Fibrovan is working if I no longer have a period?

Without period-related symptoms, you'll want to watch for improvement in the other areas of common complaint such as swollen or bloated abdomen; pelvic pain and pressure; frequent urination; back pain; and pain during intercourse.

Is Fibrovan safe?

Yes. Fibrovan is all-natural and the individual ingredients are safe

Does Fibrovan have any side-effects?
