Blood clotting helps to stop the flow of blood to our body and prevent excessive bleeding. I think it’s unnecessary to say the benefit it brings to a seriously injured person. However, it also has a disadvantage profile. Blood clotting can cause serious health problems, such as heart disease or thrombus stroke.

Therefore, blood needs to be thinned to flow through every major part of the body. It can be of great help in preventing injuries caused by heart attacks or strokes. Nowadays, it is seen that many patients are trying different drugs to thin the blood. But there really is no substitute for the body as much as the blood-thinning naturally.

Here are five of the best foods we can eat to thin the blood. People who are friends with the above-mentioned diseases can eat it daily and get good results.

1. Garlic

Garlic is one of the most commonly used spices in our daily lives. It is a very healthy food and is a natural remedy for many ailments. In the case of blood thinning, it can limit platelet aggregation and effectively prevent thrombus.

The effect of garlic on preventing heart disease or blood clotting when eating small amounts of garlic cannot be clearly seen. However, adding garlic to the diet can limit the aggregation of platelets. If you have health diseases, such as blood clots, adding more garlic to your diet can help prevent those diseases.

2. Ginger

Ginger is traditional Asian medicine, easy to use in spices or tea. So it has gradually become part of the daily diet of people. You may have heard that ginger helps with digestion, reduces inflammation, and helps prevent gastrointestinal problems or dyspepsia.

What you may not know is that ginger helps reduce blood clotting. In addition, because ginger contains salicylic acid, it helps to reduce inflammation in the body and prevents stroke.

3. Avocado

Many people don’t like the taste of avocado. But do you know, it can prevent blood clots in two ways. First, it contains omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil. It can help inhibit the formation of platelets and thrombosis. 

Second, it contains salicylic acid, such as ginger, which greatly reduces the probability of thrombosis. However, it’s best to consult with your doctor when you eat it to avoid adverse reactions caused by drugs with the hemodilution effect you are taking.

4. Fish oil

It is common knowledge that fish oil is good for the brain. But do you know that it plays a crucial role in the fight against stroke? For example, salmon contains a special omega-3 fatty acid.

It can prevent substances that promote platelet formation from diluting the blood. For people who are already at risk of blood clots, adding fish oil to their diet can greatly help their health.

5. Vitamin E

Data confirms that Vitamin E can help prevent the formation of blood clotting and reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Many people feel that vitamin E has a positive effect on aging and beauty. It’s true. In fact, Vitamin E, like many vitamins, has a good effect on keeping the body healthy.

Moreover, vitamin E can be found everywhere in the usual daily diet, including almonds, cereals, sunflowers, eggs, and nuts. Another popular method is to get Vitamin E directly via pills. Data confirms that these methods can help prevent the formation of blood clots and reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Although these five kinds of food mentioned above are prevalent and can be easily purchased, more and more people are picky about food and an unhealthy diet. So to prevent blood clotting and be healthy, try to eat more if you don’t like it anymore.
