CELOX is so effective, it's been proven to work even in the presence of common anticoagulant blood thinning medications--a welcome breakthrough for the 40 million Americans who are on blood thinners and who can suffer from serious bleeding issues. Proven to Be Effective Originally developed to assist military medics, CELOX provides fast, effective first aid for men, women, children and older adults, and it's easy to use even if you have no first aid or medical training. CELOX has even been proven to work in the cold (in cases of hypothermia).
