Coumadin is an anticoagulant, which means it helps to thin the blood and thus reduces the formation of clots in the blood.
Vitamin K plays an important role in the coagulation process of the blood. This means that Vitamin K does the opposite of thinning it!
Food with a high Vitamin K content may change the way in which Coumadin affects your body. To allow Coumadin to have the proper effect, it is crucial to maintain a consistent intake of Vitamin K. Avoid sudden increases or
decreases of the vitamin in your diet.
FOODS THAT CONTAIN A HIGH AMOUNT OF VITAMIN K:
Cranberry juice Liver
Oils: soy, canola
