Blood clots and Magnesium

Magnesium has an effective antithrombotic activity in vivo, and treatment with magnesium may lower the risk of thromboembolic-related disorders.

Magnesium has an important role to play in preventing blood clots and
keeping the blood thin-much like aspirin but without the side effects.

Dr. Sarah Mayhill says, “Magnesium deficiency also predisposes to an increased clotting tendency in the blood and to an increased vulnerability of the arterial wall to damage from other factors. These tendencies improve with magnesium supplementation. Clotting is of course the central event in the formation of coronary thrombosis.

The build up of homocysteine levels discussed earlier is due mostly to the vitamin B6, B 12 and folic acid deficiencies, but also partly to magnesium deficiency.” Magnesium prevents blood clots and thins the blood without side effects.

Dr. Mayhill continues saying, “Magnesium has a thrombolytic (able to dissolve thrombosis) effect.

Potentially fatal blood clots after surgery are a much greater risk than has previously been thought, a British study finds. Blood clots in the deep veins and the lungs, formally called venous thromboembolism, have long been known as a possible complication after any form of surgery. The risk of such a blood clot remained high for at least 12 weeks after surgery, the study found.

  1. Venous Thromboembolism; a potentially fatal clotting condition that can occur when a person has been sitting in a tight space without the ability to stretch their legs. While it is unlikely for Venous Thromboembolism to strike due to a single airplane ride, those who frequently travel and use transportation that does not provide a method to get up and move around often, are at a higher risk for developing the condition.
