This system in our body represents a very delicate balance between pro-coagulant, anticoagulant allied to a method of fibrinolysis. This system consists of 5 major components in our body i.e. platelets, coagulation factors, coagulation inhibitors, fibrinolysis and blood vessels. [1]. many problems can arise in this system so these problems can be cured by a variety of medicinal plants and mushrooms. This system is controlled by thromboxane synthase (TXS), which converts prostaglandin H2 into thromboxane A2, a potent vasoconstrictor and platelet aggregator. Plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) also plays a role in haemostasis by inhibition of fibrinolysis, which prevents failure of this process. Subsequently, neutrophils release fr..
