From doing a quick Internet search it appears collagen could help prevent blood clots.

That sounds like a good thing at first, but in my case I’m thinking it could be a problem.

For many years, on rather rare occasions, I get spontaneous bruises.

They occur typically on my hands and feet despite my having no recollection of doing anything that would cause a bruise.

I don’t take aspirin but my CBC (Complete Blood Count) always flags my platelets as low. Not terribly low, but below the normal range of 150 - 400. My level is about 115.

About 4 or 5 days ago I started taking a collagen hydrolysate supplement called SPROOS. 

Both yesterday and today I got spontaneous bruises. Yesterday it was on a finger and today it was on the palm of my hand. 

I have decided to stop taking the supplement. I believe it has anti-clotting properties that are causing the bruising.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?
