Kitchen Blood Thinners

Many of my patients are very happy to find out that natural blood thinners (with no adverse side effects) can be found in their kitchen. Here are my favorites:

  • Turmeric: This natural anticoagulant has anti-platelet effects.
  • Cayenne Pepper: This spice contains salicylate, a blood-thinning agent, as well as capsaicin, proven to have anti-obesity and anti-diabetic properties.
  • Cinnamon: A sweet spice you can shake over desserts and milky beverages, cinnamon is rich in coumarin, the powerful anticoagulant that’s used to make warfarin!
  • Garlic: Consumed daily, garlic may be useful for preventing thrombosis, as well as thinning your blood 
  • Helichrysum Essential Oil: Applying this oil to your skin has a relaxing effect on your blood vessels, making a few drops a wonderful addition to your body oil or natural lotion.
