In brief: No
There are no vitamins or natural therapeutics that will prevent or cure blood clots.
Dvt's or blood clots in the leg are a serious condition and could lead to death if improperly treated. The only medications that help are the blood thinners like Coumadin (warfarin) and Lovenox (enoxaparin) (low molecular weight heparin).

In brief: Doubtful
Some vitamins do promote bleeding and blood flow- i.
e. large dosages of Vitamin C, but sorry, I would doubt that there is any known vitamin that can "cure" blood clots.
