Platelets help you stop bleeding and facilitate clotting. In this article, we’ll share some natural recipes with you to regenerate them and improve your production.

Do you know how to elevate your platelet count naturally?

Platelets are also known as thrombocytes, and they’re produced by your bone marrow. The disease known as Thrombocytopenia occurs when your blood platelet level is extremely low.

Their main function is to stop bleeding and facilitate clotting, while keeping your bloodstream healthy. Thrombocytopenia occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough platelets, loses them, or destroys them.

To regenerate your body’s platelet supplies, there are some natural remedies. Today, we want to share the best ones with you:

1-Garlic soup


  • 6 eggs
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • Ham (50 g)
  • Hard or toasted bread (150 g)
  • 6 cups of natural broth (1200 ml), made by dissolving 1 cube of vegetable bouillon in water
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika (4 g)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of parsley (5 g)


  • Set the slices of bread to fry in a pan using olive oil until they are golden brown. When they’re ready, remove them from heat and saute the garlic.
  • Add the chopped onion to the garlic and then remove from heat. Add the paprika, then return to heat and add the ham.
  • Add the vegetable broth to a large pot and bring to a simmer. Add all prior ingredients to the mix, along with the parsley, and slowly cook for 10 minutes over low heat.
  • Using oven-proof bowls made of glass or ceramic, separate the soup into six bowls and break an egg into each one. Then, put them in the oven heated to 350 until each egg begins to set.
