(1) some inhibit platelet function (e.g. Aspirin, clopidogrel, etc.). (2) others interfere with some of the clot forming proteins (warfarin, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, etc.), (3) others stimulate the blood clot destruction ...Read more

"Thinner"=Misleading: Blood viscosity=primarily due to surface adhesiveness of red blood cells. Blood viscosity is ?ed in anemia (RBCs farther apart), but is not healthy.

Aspirin and plavix, (clopidogrel) for example, inhibit platelet cells in the bloodstream from clumping together.
