Will high vitamin C thin the blood?

Might be a dup.

My question is...do high amounts of vitamin c cause a thinning of the blood? I am using Plavix because of 5 stents I have. Larry

No - I am not aware of any known effect of vitamin C regarding "thinning" the blood.

I do know that more than one trial of plavix was canceled early because the plavix group was dying faster than the placebo group.

With that many stents you should definitely research and consider going on Linus Pauling's vitamin C/lysine therapy.
