6. Vitamin E.

Vitamin E reduces blood coagulation in several different ways. It depends on the amount of vitamin E that a person takes. It has not yet been established exactly how much vitamin E dilutes the blood, although it is likely that people will have to take about 400 international units (IU) per day. Taking high doses of vitamin E supplements, for example, over 1,500 IU per day, for a long time can have negative consequences.

  • sunflower oil;

  • wheat germ oil;
