Coumadin, also known as Warfarin, is a prescription blood thinner that works by blocking vitamin K from doing its job in the liver to produce clotting products. Therefore, many physicians become concerned when patients who are taking Coumadin (Warfarin) also take supplements that contain vitamin K. ARIIX Optimals contain 45 mcg of vitamin K per recommended dose (three capsules).
It is crucial that you inform your physician of your desire to take ARIIX Optimals while also taking Coumadin. Recent studies have shown that consuming a modest amount of vitamin K while also taking Coumadin allows for greater control of the blood's Protime, or measurement of thinning. Your physician will make adjustments to the dose of Coumadin (Warfarin) you are prescribed based on ongoing Protime measurements. Therefore, if you decide to take your Optimals in conjunction with Coumadin (Warfarin) it is critical that you are consistent in taking your supplements. This will allow your physician to make the appropriate adjustments to the amount of medication you are prescribed. In most cases, many individuals are able to take the Optimals in conjunction with Coumadin; however, this decision is ultimately up to your physician.
