Analysis of selected literature showed that many plants contain bioactive compounds with antiplatelet and anticoagulant effects. These herbal ingredients act against factors that play an important role in thrombosis by disrupting primary and secondary hemostasis. The potential of herbal ingredients to fight various diseases suggests the need for further research. Referenced articles were retrieved from Google Scholar, PubMed, ScienceDirect and Elsevier, focusing on articles published in English-language journals. Together, this study highlights the importance of new phytoconstituents to minimize the adverse effects of current anticoagulants
