Serious Side Effects Of Cloves You Never Knew

  • Increases Bleeding:

Overconsumption of clove can thin out your blood and increase the risk of bleeding. The spice contains a chemical named 'eugenol', which being a blood-thinning agent, can decelerate the process of blood clotting, promoting abnormal bleeding. It is advised that you stay away from eating too much of clove while suffering from bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, or taking drugs with anticoagulants. It is also advised to stop the intake of clove, a couple of weeks prior to undergoing a surgery.

  • Lowers Sugar Level In The Blood:

Those who have lower than normal blood sugar level should reduce their consumption of clove immediately.
