A 45-year-old female asked:

I take a sleep aid at night. Valerian root, lemon balm, l-theanine, hops, chamomile, passion flower & melatonin. Do any of these thin my blood?

Interesting question: I can't help but wonder why you asked. Homeopathic doses of these herbal supplements should not thin your blood.
