Im not sure of any foods that contain blood thinning properties. But, if you drink more water that will thin your blood to an extent. You should speak to your doctor about prescriptions that have blood thinning properties. I know Coumadin is used as a blood thinner for patients with high blood pressure.

There are essentially only two "foods" that "thin" the blood: water and alcohol. The problem is that drinking enough of either to the point that the blood actually begins to thin will result in toxicity.

Here's the problem, blood that is inundated to the point that it actually becomes less viscous cannot do what it is intended to do. Water toxicity or alcohol poisoning are both very serious conditions, and both lead to death.

Now, that being said, it is understood what you meant here. More properly you are likely looking for foods that reduce the clotting factor of blood. Some of these foods that do promote anti-coagulation are:

  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Vitamin E
  • Fish Oil
