There are a number of foods and supplements that are known to thin the blood. These include foods with high amounts of aspirin like substances called salicylates, omega-3 fatty acids, foods with natural antibiotic properties and Vitamin E supplements. Herbs and spices, fruits high in salicylates that thin the blood include: Curry powder Cayenne pepper Ginger Paprika Thyme Cinnamon Dill Oregano Turmeric Licorice Peppermint Raisins Prunes Cherries Cranberries Blueberries Grapes Strawberries Tangerines Oranges Chewing gum Honey Vinegar Wine Cider Garlic Onions Olive Oil Avocados Cabbage Broccoli Brussel Sprouts Cauliflower Parsley Omega- 3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 fatty acids have received a lot of press lately because of their ability to lower cholesterol levels and make the blood less prone to clotting. Fish oil is usually high in omega-3s and can be ingested either through purchasing capsules or by eating fatty fish. Fish with high amounts of omega-3s include: Mackerel Anchovies Salmon Albacore tuna Mackerel Lake Trout Herring Click these links if you would like more info:
