    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Bleed too much...any ideas?

    This might be a question so stupid that I shoulda started it in trollshido, but I'll give it a shot here first.

    Anyone who's ever sparred me at a throwdown knows that I bleed like a virgin on promnight, specifically from my lips. Though not debilitating, it's annoying for me and tends to gross out my training partners. Anyone with a similar problem have any sorta solutions? Certain diets to help blood clots? Chapstick before fights? Carry vaseline at all times?

    Some people just bleed.

    Just like some people GET ROCKED! [/joerogan]

    Nah, but seriously, if I get punched good in the nose, I'll have flecks of blood if I wipe it with a shirt or on my arm.

    I'm assuming that being hit in the mouth/lips is with a mouthguard in, right?

    Yeah, with the mouthguard.

    I don't need to take any punishement to start flowing. Just a few jabs and I'm a fountain.

    According to my nutritional notes, Calcium and Vitamin K are instrumental in blood clotting. Green, leafy veggies such as kale and collard greens contain both Vit K and Calcium without the oxalic acid that inhibits the absorption of calcium as found in spinach and chard.

    How that can help you, no clue.

    Meh, I tend to bleed a lot in general (Paper skin and water blood), so if nothing else, could help me out in life.

    Wish rep was back =P Thanks

    Not really a lot to do about that if you have the bad karma to bleed a lot. I suggest keeping a lot of tissues around, or taking up a gi based art - gis make good bloodsoakers. And for God's sake, wipe the stuff off the mats ASAP.

    Vitamin K is needed for synthesis of some of the clotting factors; calcium is needed to activate those factors.

    Calcium is also involved in so many basic cellular functions, I would doubt that excessive bleeding is a symptom of calcium deficiency - but it could happen.

    Vitamin K, on the other hand, is clotting-specific. It's also a fat soluble vitamin, so if you're eating a very low fat diet, you may not be absorbing enough K. So eat your greens with whole milk - calcium plus fat for absorption.

    Another thing to consider is how much animal protein you're getting in your diet. Animal protein sources are better balanced (with respect to amino acid competition) for collagen synthesis than plant sources.

    Collagen is what holds your tissues together.


    You can see a doctor, you know, and specifically to get a measure of blood clotting time.

    You could have your blood pressue checked, but if YOURS is high, there's no freaking hope for the rest of us.
