I am on a blood thinner (for example, Coumadin/Warfarin, Plavix, etc.). Are there any Australian products I should not take?
People on anticoagulant therapy need to avoid vitamin K, which aids in blood clotting. It is assumed that there is some naturally occurring vitamin K in Mannatech Phyt•Aloe® capsules and Mannatech Manna•Bears™ supplements and it may be advisable to avoid these products. Mannnatech Ambrotose AO™ capsules also contain Phyt•Aloe® powder.
Mannatech GlycoLEAN® Catalyst Tablets contain ubidecarenone. Some literature refers to the possibility that ubidecarenone may diminish response to Warfarin (Coumadin), so the patient should be monitored appropriately.
Why are antioxidants important?
Antioxidant-rich nutrients help protect your cells against the harmful effects of toxins, environmental stress, poor diet and oxidative stress. Antioxidants also act as free radical scavengers.
