A 41-year-old male asked:
Is it safe to take garlic, tumeric, and sawpalmetto supplements daily? have read that they all have blood thinning properties?

Yes: Yes, these are all safe to take daily. While they all may thin the blood somewhat, keeping our blood thin is a good strategy to prevent cardiovascular disease and strokes. You should be careful if you are taking pharmaceuticals that thin blood but in general it is good to keep our blood on the thin side and these are quite safe.
