Platelet Count Health

Herbs to Support Healthy Blood Platelet Counts*

Platelets are tiny blood cells with irregular shapes that are produced in the bone marrow and whose main health function is to control bleeding since they take part in the blood clotting process (coagulation).

Each platelet contains cytoplasmic granules and compounds that enhance their ability to stick to each other as well as adhere to tears and damage in blood vessel walls. Platelets normally circulate for about 10 days before being removed by the liver and spleen.

The average healthy person has 150,000 to 300,000 platelets in each milliliter of blood.
