Blood clot warning: Five foods that could ‘keep blood from moving’ – ‘steer clear’

Some of the worst culprits are free fructose, which is notorious for drastically increasing blood pressure.

But these foods also increase high blood sugar, causing abnormalities in the process of coagulation.

In fact, research suggests high glucose not only presents an opportunity for blood clots to form but also reduces the body’s ability to dissolve these naturally.

Processed foods work in a similar fashion due to their high salt content; by putting stress on the heart, high sodium diets can cause problems with how blood flows and clots.
