Foods for adequate blood circulation

Turmeric: Curcumin, the active ingredient found in turmeric, is reported to have anticoagulant properties that may help lower your risk of blood clots.8

Ginger: This popular cooking ingredient contains salicylate, a compound that may help keep blood from clotting.

Cinnamon: Coumarin, a compound found in cinnamon and cassia, has been shown to have potent anticoagulant abilities.9 However, be careful when using this spice, as long-term consumption can cause liver damage.

Cayenne peppers: Similar to ginger, cayenne peppers have salicylates in them. They also have other nutrients that may help lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation.

Vitamin E: This vitamin is believed to be a mild anticoagulant. Healthy options that contain generous amounts of vitamin E include dark leafy greens, avocadosolivespapayas and almonds.10

It’s important to be careful if you’re going to consume natural blood thinners. If you’re taking anticoagulants, these foods should not be mixed with the medications because they can exacerbate the drugs’ effects. To be on the safe side, consult with a doctor first before consuming natural blood-thinning foods to prevent any conflict with your ongoing treatments.11
