Hello @budnjaz4688 Blood thinners are products which are referred to as anticoagulants. They help keep the blood from clotting. They don’t dissolve clots that have already formed but they can prevent them from getting larger.

There are prescription based products such as Warfarin and Xarelto. And OTC (over the counter) medications such as aspirin which can help prevent blood clots. There are natural foods and supplements which can also have the same effect.

Here are names of prescription based products for you:

It’s important to discuss this with your physician before starting any treatment that changes your blood chemistry. Do you have Factor V Leiden or a blood condition where you have a tendency for blood clots?
