Suitable foods to prevent hematomas or bruises

Spinach are very rich in vitamin K that protects us against hematomas formation

Raw green turnips are one of the highest foods in this vitamin. Other foods that contain it are: spinach, strawberries raw cabbage, raw cauliflower, broccoli, wheat germ and, for the non vegetarian people, cow liver, eggs
  • Food high in vitamin C: They have antioxidant properties, capable of reducing the negative influence of free radicals on blood vessels. Eating these foods will help prevent the occurrence of bruising and promote healing.

Among the most interesting foods, we have citruses and, among them, lemon. Lemon is rich in vitamin C, along with routine and hesperidin in the maintenance of the arteries to improve the elasticity of them and prevent spills that occur in the veins and capillaries.

Eating or drinking lemon juice helps prevent hypertension, controls the appearance of hemorrhoids or varices and avoids the habitual formation of bruises, small hemorrhages in gums or nose bleeding. A diet of lemon or a strawberry diet could be very interesting for people who usually suffer bruises.

  • Food high in bioflavonoids: Bioflavonoids are components well suited to favour bloodstream. It has been proved the empowering and healing capacity of bioflavonoids which makes them very suitable for the treatment of circulatory diseases such as varicose veins, arteriosclerosis, phlebitis, etc.


    Oranges, as the rest of citruses, contain a lot of bioflavonoids that favour capillary flexibility. This makes our blood vessels more resistant

By increasing the flexibility of the capillaries, they can better withstand without breaking so easily, being adequate to prevent bleeding, bruising, nosebleeds, etc.

Moreover, the ability of bioflavonoids to increase the absorption of vitamin C, enhance the beneficial uses of this vitamin in preventing oxidation of the blood vessels.

Among food high in bioflavonoids we especially have the citruses such as oranges, lemons, grapefruits, etc. and other fruits as strawberries, redcurrants, papayas, apricots.

  • Foods high in Zinc and selenium: They are two minerals that help prevent bruising. A complex of vitamins B, vitamin C and vitamin E, plus selenium and zinc, according to the conditions of the information leaflet, will help improve the healing of these skin lesions.
