Does anyone bleed freer?

Example if I have a scab from a blemish and I do a scrub with washcloth the blemish seems to bleed longer than ore paleo. Could it be that I am missing something or overdoing something? Vitamin or mineral? I only take d3 when I can't get outside and walk and have only taken co q 10 a handful of times

Typically it would take a dab or two to dry a small spot now two to three times longer. Of course that isn't alot of blood but something I wanted to keep an eye on should I have surgery or large gash so I could advise anyone.

Theresa sometimes takes D3, and rarely COQ10.

Agreed, do you take fish oil? If so it may be time to cut back if your bleeding is excessive.

Then again too much clotting isn't a good thing either. Bleeding freely for a period is one way the body cleanses itself after an injury. So I guess it depends if what you really got going on is excessive.

Even if you're not supplementing them, dietary omega 3 fats thin the blood and inhibit clotting.

If you choose to supplement with K, make sure it is K2 and is in a high enough dose. A high enough dose is likely 1mg or so. A lot of the products are in micrograms and/or are K1, which just isn't the same. I take 5mg, but I think it would likely be better to take lower doses spread throughout the day, since it is only active for about 4hrs or so. There doesn't seem to be a downside, except if you give blood- the process will be slower.

Are you supplementing Vitamin E? Vitamin E is a blood thinner. Too much would cause a similar problem.
