    Hi Gloria,

     

    Green tea may be an option.  You mother-in-law is probably being closely monitored by her physician right now (having regular blood tests to check INR - a measure of blood clotting).  Green tea contains vitamin K which impacts warfarin/coumadin and blood clotting, but as long as her vitamin K intake is consistent her medication can be adjusted for her consumption of vitamin K containing foods.  I recommend discussing with her physician.

     

    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
