Hello i have a quick question...I recently became worried about natural blood thinners, today i woke up and took a "mushroom therapy" supplement that contains: Trametes(300mg), Shiitake(125mg), Maitake(50mg), Reishi(100mg), Cordyceps(75mg), And Ginger(20mg)..I also took (100mg) Grape seed extract, Resveratrol (100mg),A multi-vtamin and ate a smoked salmon sushi roll with pickled ginger and wasabi....is there any need to be concerned with the anticoagulant effects of the combination of these natural substances?
You can never be sure how all this will affect your use of a pharmaceutical anticoagulant. It would be wise to keep check your PT/INR to make sure you are in the correct range and not getting too thin.
I recommend Nattokinase to keep the blood thin as it is reported to not affect your PT/INR and it eats up the fibrogen routinely if it should form yet for some reason will allow fibrogne to form if you have been injured and need to clot.
Personally, if it were me Id not take an anticoagulant unless I had afib or artificial heart valves. .. but I'd still take natokinase along with it becaue people still can get clots on coumadin which is a high risk with afib and artificia heart valves... they can also bleed out internally so my game plan would be to reduce coumadin and elimiate it. If I were concerned about clots for other reasons than what I stated I would not take coumadin but improve my diet, keep hydrated, take nattokinase, vitamin c, pycogenol,
The mushrooms will greatly inhance your immunity. Resversatrol likely would have a blood thining action as well as ginger. Grapeseed extract keeps platlets from sticking together much like the drug Plavix but way way safer. Each plant affects the blood in different ways so no telling how it will interface with coumadin.
Have you had your figrogen levels checked before and while on this stuff?

im not taking any prescription medicines im taking these mostly for preventive healthcare im 24 years old 5' 6" weigh 115 lbs and eat mostly fruits , veggies, fish and chicken. i regularly take CoQ-10, A plant based Multi-Vitamin (rainbow light for males) drink 2-3 cups of green tea per day, try to eat fish a few times a week,and recently added resveratrol, and grapeseed extract, i have never had my figrogen levels checked. I do get routine blood tests every 3 months a lipid panel while fasting and metabolic panel i think some others as well.
Most 24 year olds that I know live on junk food, alcohol, and no sleep, so you are doing good. I trust you are a non-smoker and not a work-aholic, for that could really affect your health in a negative way.
I would suggest that you use a good quality sea salt, such as real salt instead of the regular table salt. Sea salt contains several hard-to-get minerals that you need in trace amounts, and good quality filtered water instead of tap water, which is loaded with crap.
I would also suggest taking 1000iu of D3 per day in addition to what you get from your multivitamin, as well as curcumin, a truely remarkable spice.
You need not worry about overthinning your blood with natural substances, such as vitamin C, E, or resveratrol
