Re: Vit. C and blood clots
Well, I am currently taking about 6 grams of vitamin C per day, and my platelet count has always been in the normal range. So, I don't know if it can actually increase platelet count to above the normal range. In regard to vitamin C's effect on blood platelets, I have found some studies on PubMed which state that higher vitamin C blood levels will actually decrease platelet aggregation, meaning that the platelets will not have as much of a tendency to clump together and form blood clots. This is just one more reason why vitamin C is an important cardiovascular supplement.
