Diet plays a large role in safely taking anticoagulants to prevent blood clots or strokes. Not adhering to the recommended diet can greatly increase the likelihood of a life threatening blood clot or hemorrhage. Vitamin K is the most important nutrient to keep consistent while taking anticoagulants.
Recommended Vitamin K Intake While Taking Blood Thinners
Vitamin K is measured in micrograms, which is abbreviated mcg. It is recommended women consume no more then 90 micrograms (mcg) per day and men consume no more then 120 micrograms (mcg) per day of vitamin K.
