Well....sure. Very high doses have significant anti-platelet activity.
That's why fish oil is one of the things you have to cut out before any kind of surgery.


Just to be clear:
fish oil lowers platelet activity and not the actual number of platelets?

Just curious because last time I gave blood they wanted be to start donating platelets.
Thanks,
