Can I eat dark green leafy vegetables if I am taking blood thinners?

A Answers (1)

  • Dark green leafy vegetables are high in vitamin K, which may interfere with blood-thinning medication such as Coumadin. If you take a blood-thinning medication, keep your intake of vitamin K-rich foods consistent -- be careful not to significantly increase or decrease how much or how often you eat them. Ask your healthcare providers for more information.
