Ways to thin the blood
Top Products for blood thinning:
Blood, as the internal environment of the body, is the connecting element that carries information about the state of absolutely all organs and tissues, ensuring their harmonious work. If there are failures in this system – this is evidence of general ill-being and upcoming diseases. First of all, they are manifested by the condensation of blood, which underlies all further pathological changes. Therefore, it is important to maintain coagulation homeostasis at a stable level.
Juices for blood thinning
Drinking juices significantly reduces blood viscosity. For these purposes, various fruit and vegetable juices are ideal. Their positive effect on the coagulation system is due to the high content of vitamins and microelements responsible for the balance between the coagulation and anticoagulation systems. In addition, water, which is in a significant amount in any even the most concentrated juice, replenishes the lack of fluid in the body. Daily use of one glass of fruit juice is sufficient for positive changes in the hemostatic system.
As for specific types of juice, they can be very diverse, containing in its composition the components of one or more fruits. It is desirable that they are not canned, but freshly squeezed.
The coagulability of blood is very well reduced against the background of systematic administration of orange, cranberry, lemon, carrot, apple, peach, pineapple, pomegranate, banana-strawberry, currant and various other types of juice.
Be sure to try a mixture of grapefruit, orange and a little lemon (although you can without a lemon, if you do not like it). This drink not only dilutes the blood, but also cleanses the liver and the entire lymphatic system!
We should also mention the exceptional benefits of tomatoes and their pulp. Such juice can be drunk in large quantities. In addition to the anticoagulant effect, it is an excellent antioxidant. The same effect is characteristic of fruits and berries from which juices are made: gooseberry, raspberry, blackberry.
Only fresh juices have a healing effect on the body! Store juices only harm your health.
Soda for blood thinning
About this tool in recent times talking more and more often. A positive effect of soda has been recorded in almost all diseases and pathological abnormalities in the body, intoxications, and obesity.
Harm. Of course, you should not experiment much and be zealous in this regard. All in one voice argue about the benefits of alkalization of the body, but it is difficult to understand what it is connected with. After all, the environment of the body should be neutral or weakly alkaline and its changes, both in acidic and alkaline directions, can cause irreparable harm. Therefore, soda as a natural blood thinner can be used, but only under the careful control of your condition. Sometimes the body does not need alkalis and their additional administration does not add to health at all, provoking the development of rebound syndrome.
Especially often it happens in people with peptic ulcer or duodenal ulcer with increased secretion of hydrochloric acid. Just its production can be protective in nature, eliminating the body from excessive acidification. The use of soda brings a short-term effect of alleviating the condition, with which its popularity is associated. When this happens the usual chemical reaction in which acid and alkali only neutralize each other with a drop in pH, without bringing any benefit. In response, it begins to produce more acid, which only aggravates the underlying disease of the stomach. This must be taken into account before using soda as an anticoagulant.
Benefit. But we can not say about the positive aspects, which are fixed in the internal and external use of soda in the form of a solution. One of them is blood-disintegrating. This is due to the fact that after the absorption of bicarbonate from the stomach and intestines, it concentrates directly in the blood, shifting the pH to the alkaline side. In such an environment, shaped elements acquire the property of repelling each other, which significantly reduces its thickness and the risk of blood clots in the vessels.
In order not to harm the body, you must listen to what he says. Therefore, before drinking soda is better to check the pH of the blood. If it turns out that he tends to the acidic side, then it is safe to begin alkalization. Another important point in the appointment of such anticoagulant therapy is the confidence that it is needed. After all, a person may have a slight acidosis (acidification), but there are problems with the coagulation system in the direction of reducing this ability.

If there are no contraindications for alkalization of the body, the blood-thinning effect of soda can be achieved in two ways:
Daily reception of soda in the form of an aqueous solution. To do this, mix 1 / 5-1 / 4 teaspoons of soda in a glass of warm water and after thorough mixing, drink. It is better if this procedure is performed on an empty stomach in the morning and in the evening;
Course reception on the background of fasting. The method is quite aggressive and should be applied under the strictest control. For it is necessary for 3-5-10 days on the background of relative starvation to take a solution of soda 10-12 times per day per 1/4 spoon per 250 ml of water. You should not carry out such procedures on your own, especially if you have never done medical fasting!
Aspirin to thin the blood
The effect of aspirin to thin the blood has been proven for a very long time. Today, this drug belongs to first-aid measures for such dangerous diseases as cardiac muscle infarction and pulmonary thromboembolism. Every heart patient must carry it along with nitroglycerin. It begins to act so quickly that, in case of emergency, after a few minutes, a positive effect in terms of blood thinning can be fixed.
The mechanism of action of the drug is its antiplatelet abilities. This means that once in the bloodstream, it affects the blood cells responsible for triggering the formation of clots – platelets. Influence on blood coagulation factors is not fixed. It is platelet hemostasis that is fulminant in the event of a violation of the integrity of the vascular wall, which is possible if an atherosclerotic plaque ruptures. Due to the timely reception of aspirin, it will be significantly slowed down.
How to take aspirin? It all depends on the purpose of his appointment. They can be preventive and curative. In the first case, it is a systematic lifelong or course medication. It is better if this is performed at bedtime due to an increased risk of thrombus formation at night. The standard dose is 75-150 milligrams of the substance. Increasing the dose does not cause an improvement in the blood thinning effect, but can provoke the development of complications. In case of emergency medical indications for taking aspirin, its dose is similar to the prophylactic. But its increase to 300 mg is allowed. The tablet must be chewed and placed under the tongue for rapid absorption.
The harm of aspirin, as well as its benefits, also takes place. One of the brightest negative effects is irritation of the gastric and duodenal mucosa. It occurs quite often, especially if the recommendations for taking the drug are violated.
At the same time, erosion, ulcers, gastroduodenitis, ulcerative bleeding may occur. They can cause surgical treatment and even death. Due to the high risk of such complications, the drug is prohibited for use in many Western countries.
The remaining side effects are less relevant, since they do not cause serious deviations from the body.
Acetylsalicylic acid is the active ingredient of aspirin. Due to the pronounced side effects of pure acetylsalicylic acid, manifested by irritation of the stomach, systematic intake of it in its pure form is not recommended.
The most popular drugs in this series today are:
The features that are very important to observe when taking these drugs include:
Daily admission courses or permanently. Episodic application of effect does not bring;
It is better to take drugs in the evening;
Before taking the drug should be eating. To do this, eat a small piece of bread;
Periodic monitoring of blood coagulation, although this is not regulated by international protocols.

Many consider this product an indispensable tool for maintaining health, systematically using it according to a proven scheme. It can be said for sure that cider vinegar is hard to harm the body. Therefore, its use can be attributed to relatively safe events. A number of its positive effects on the body have been recorded, one of which is a decrease in blood viscosity.
The mechanism of such an action can be explained by its weakly acid reaction caused by natural beneficial components. Their intake contributes to the removal of toxic acidic compounds, which are replaced by the active components of apple cider vinegar. At the same time, metabolic acidosis is eliminated in the blood, which contributes to its acquisition of more liquid properties compared with the initial level. Naturally, to achieve a similar effect, a systematic intake of a substance is necessary, which can completely replace the daily use of tablets with the same effect.
Proper reception of apple cider vinegar should be carried out in the morning. This is a very important condition, since at this time the body is most capable of dumping oxidized products. The recipe for preparing an aqueous solution consists of a glass of warm water and two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. A single daily dose is sufficient. The duration of coursework is from 2-3 months to a year with 10-15 day breaks every 2 months. The only contraindication is gastroduodenitis, peptic ulcer with increased acidity of the stomach.
Another natural antithrombotic agent with many other positive effects. Its uniqueness in the rare composition, which is represented by the majority of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). They are indispensable and should only come from the environment. There are not so many products in the world that contain them. Linseed oil is one of them. The importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids in recent times is very often discussed by the public, in connection with which various preparations based on them have been created. But no chemical can compare with the effect of natural compounds.
The positive properties of flaxseed oil in relation to blood clotting are related to the fact that it normalizes lipid metabolism. When this happens, the atherogenic properties of the blood decrease due to the inactivation of an excess of cholesterol particles and triglycerides. Blood is saturated with lipids, which help to maintain it in a liquid state, reducing the development of atherosclerosis and blood clots in places of existing atherosclerotic plaques. As a result – reducing the risk of heart attack and ischemic stroke.
Proper intake of flaxseed oil should be carried out in this way. It is better if you drink one tablespoon of oil in the morning on an empty stomach. If you can not do this, you can take after meals. reception is strictly daily. You can take short breaks between courses. It is important to consider the contraindications, which include cholelithiasis and a tendency to diarrhea. For people suffering from constipation, the oil will be not only a means for blood thinning, but also an excellent laxative drug.
The most common foods that reduce blood viscosity are ginger, cranberry, garlic and lemon. Slightly weaker effects are seafood, vegetables and fruits, fish, and greens.
Ginger. Healing properties of the root has this plant. It is used in the form of food seasoning mainly in powder or raw form. It has a rich chemical composition, in which the most important place in terms of blood thinning belongs to natural antioxidants and lipids. For the reception, you can make tea from half a teaspoon of grated ginger, which is infused in one liter of boiling water. This is the daily dose. Do not exceed it due to the high activity of ginger, which is contraindicated when taking most cardiac and blood thinning drugs, severe liver and kidney damage, the presence of sources of bleeding, fever, as well as in hot weather.
Cranberry. Beautiful berry with wonderful properties, one of which is the reduction of blood viscosity. The berries of this plant are mainly used, both fresh and dried. You can take whole fruits, and you can include them in the composition of juices, fruit drinks, tinctures. It is permissible to make teas and compotes containing only cranberries or its combination with other ingredients. The only contraindication for admission is gastritis and gastric ulcer with high acidity due to the high content of acids in its composition.
Garlic. Treats products with strong blood-thinning properties. It is used in its raw form and as a seasoning for food products. The use of one clove of garlic per day has a very good anticoagulant effect. Contraindications for use can be gastritis, hemorrhoids, heart disease, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Lemon. One of the few products that has no contraindications. Lemon fruits have useful properties. At the same time, both its pulp and skin are active. Only bones have toxic properties. You can take a lemon in any form with the addition of honey, tea or plain water.
Medicinal herbs for blood thinning
Considering the issues of blood thinning, it is impossible not to mention medicinal plants. Many of them have similar properties, but the most active are white willow and clover.
White willow bark to thin the blood. The anticoagulant action of this plant is due to the presence in its composition of salicin, which is a precursor of salicylic acid. As is well known this chemical compound has good anti-clotting abilities. The difference between white willow salicin and its chemical analogue lies in the fact that it practically does not cause disturbances from the gastrointestinal system, and also does not provoke the development of bleeding. The combination of such properties with excellent anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effect allows you to use it even in pediatric practice.
Method of application depends on the form of release. If it is a pill, then the recommended dosage for adults is 2-3 tablets (1 per reception). This is enough to keep the blood in good condition. In case of purchasing dried bark, tea is prepared from it. Side effects are extremely rare.
Clover. Leaves and flowers of this plant have medicinal properties. In addition to its healing properties, it is also toxic. Therefore, the reception of this plant should be agreed with the doctor. It is better to use the pharmaceutical forms of the plant, as there are a lot of subtleties in its collection and harvesting, the observance of which is mandatory. Its blood-thinning effect is so strong that it can cause the appearance of menstruation with prolonged amenorrhea in the collection with some plants.
It is best to prepare an infusion or tea from the crushed parts of a dry plant. To do this, for two hours you can infuse a teaspoon of herbs in a glass of water, cooled to room temperature. After straining take 0.5 glass 2 times a day. To make tea, brew 30 grams of flowers or leaves in one liter of water. Contraindications occur with heavy menstruation, chronic hemorrhoids and other diseases with the threat of bleeding.
