Hi..garlic, flaxseed oil, vitamin e and omega oils are all anticoagulants. Salicylates are as well....
I take salicylates (5ASA meds) and aspirin for headaches. Tylenol..I'm trying to go easy on my liver.
I did have a coagulation test...mine was perfect...but my skin is thin/fragile, again inherited quality on my dad's side.
I bump myself constantly....but weird is that I fell down the stairs, slamming on my shoulder, dislocated and then back into place at the same time...not one bruise in that area. Go figure!
I do get worse when I take too many aspirin. So, I'm watching that.
Vitamin C is supposed to help strengthen the blood vessels as well as Vitamin A and something else I forget. Foods that are "blue" from berries are good strengthing for vessels. I'll look into more berries for dessert...
hope this helps.
