I would not: Recommend as dietary changes can significantly alter warfarin metabolism.

ACE is an OTC supplement that has Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, Vit B6, Chromium, Spirulina, and cocoa powder. The biggest reason to be wary is the Spirulina which has a significant amount of Vit K which will affect your coagulation and you would have to be taking more of the Warfarin.
