It's most important for you to do is understand what is causing low blood platelets (called thrombocytopenia).  There are different causes discussed in this WebMD article.  Vitamin B12 and folic acid can help if the thrombocytopenia is specifically caused by low levels of those vitamins.  I cannot find any research that shows taking certain taking vitamins will help to raise blood platelets.  The best thing to do is work with your healthcare provider about tackling the cause of your condition.  Good luck!

Platelets are cells that are vital to your blood's ability to clot. When a low platelet countproblem arises, a variety of vitamin supplements can help prevent and treat this condition such as:


Vitamin C, known as ascorbic acid, is involved in the production and maintenance of your body's tissues.


Vitamin D supplements can be effective to increase low platelet count.


While vitamin K may not directly influence your platelet count, it is essential to your blood's ability to clot.


Try to eat fresh fruits and vegetables products like Sheffafoods company product that mainly consist of vitamins like Berries, green leafy vegetables, oranges, tomatoes and kiwis – these will help you increase the platelet count.
