Doctor Ginsburg: cocoa and green tea prevent thrombosis with anti-inflammatory effects

The famous Russian nutritionist Mikhail Ginzburg spoke about three types of drinks that prevent blood clots.

Nutritionist Ginzburg said in an interview that a good prevention of blood thickening and the clumping of its particles into clots (blood clots) is the consumption of drinks such as green tea and cocoa. The expert noted that cocoa and green tea prevent thrombosis with their anti-inflammatory effect – both drinks contain many substances that can effectively fight inflammation in the body. In particular, green tea is rich in catechins: these compounds prevent blood thickening, improve blood fluidity, and prevent the clumping of blood cells.

“Due to the content of catechins, which have an anti-inflammatory effect, green tea improves blood fluidity and increases its antiplatelet properties , that is, repulsion of blood cells from each other,” the nutritionist explained to Moscow 24.
Cocoa, according to Ginzburg, also prevents thrombosis through its anti-inflammatory effect. Like tea, it is a drink with antiplatelet properties that prevents blood cells from sticking together.

Another type of drink that Ginzburg considers to help prevent thick blood clots is natural berry fruit drinks. Berries are the richest source of antioxidants, which have a positive effect on the condition of blood vessels and blood quality. Neither fruit drinks nor tea should contain sugar. The specialist only recommended adding ginger to these drinks.
