Platelet Levels Matter
Low platelets levels are common in cancer. When you are doing everything to correct the cause, below are some possible helps to raise these levels.
1. Vitamin A rich foods
Vitamin A is essential for a healthy platelet production. This nutrient is known to be significant for protein formation in the body. Healthy protein content in the body helps in the process of cell division and growth. Some of the foods that you should ideally add to your daily diet may include carrot, pumpkin, kale and sweet potatoes.
2. Green foods
Deficiency of natural folate in the body may lead to a lower blood platelet count. Include more green juice, spinach, asparagus and leafy greens in your diet.
3. Load up on vitamin K
Foods to increase blood platelets include vitamin K rich foods. This nutrient is necessary to ensure a healthy growth of cells at an optimum level in the body. Eating kale, eggs, green leafy vegetables, liver, meat, cabbage, parsley, et. al. will help increase your blood platelet count.
4. Vitamin B-12
Vitamin B-12 may help keep your blood cells healthy and its deficiency has been associated with low platelet counts. Vitamin B-12 is generally found in eggs, milk, cheese, et al.
Iron is known to promote the production of healthy cells in the body. It is best for the people with anemia. Go ahead and include pumpkin seeds, pomegranate, lentils and leafy greens in your diet to load up on iron.
6. Vitamin C rich food
Vitamin C is responsible for helping your platelets group together to function properly. It also helps the body to absorb iron that also contributes to increasing blood platelets. Add mangoes, broccoli, pineapple, tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower, Indian gooseberry or amla, et al.
7. Wheat grass
According to a study published in the International Journal of Universal Pharmacy and Life Sciences, wheat grass has been known to help elevate blood platelet count. Drinking a cup of wheat grass along with a drop of lemon juice may help increase blood platelet.
8. Specific Nutraceuticals:
- Immunobel-Pro – Beljanski’s RNA fragments have been formulated in Immunobel-Pro™ and are now available to healthcare professionals for their patients who suffer from low WBC and platelet counts. The RNAs naturally restore normal levels of these cells without any negative side effects at all.
- Chaga Mushroom Powder – Chaga mushroom may be an easy and relatively inexpensive way to help boost platelets.
Greens First Pro – this has nearly all the foods contained in the list above and then some. It’s a great addition to a healthy diet.
