How can I increase my platelet count naturally?

"Platelets are blood cells that help with clotting, and it is essential to maintain their levels. However, some people have thrombocytopenia, or a low platelet count, which means they have to find ways to increase their levels. Eating certain foods may help increase a person's platelet count naturally.

Foods to eat to increase platelet count include:

  • Folate-rich foods
  • Foods rich in vitamins B-12, C, D, and K
  • Iron-rich foods
  • Supplements of these nutrients are available and may help raise a person's platelet count.

Avoiding specific products, such as alcohol and the artificial sweetener aspartame, can also help to increase platelet count."
