One tablet per day with a heavy meal.
The most common cause of disability and death in the United States is an abnormal clot that develops inside an artery to cause a heart attack (blocked blood vessel in the heart), or a stroke (blocked blood vessel in the brain). Aspirin has an immediate and lasting effect on blood platelets, making them less likely to clump together and making blood flow smoothly. The low dose of aspirin (81 mg) provided by the Healthprin™ tablet has been shown to be beneficial in the prevention of heart attacks, strokes, and transient ischemic attacks (little strokes).
More than 50 randomized trials have documented the safety and effectiveness of aspirin as a cardiovascular drug.1 Low-dose aspirin is advised by legions of physicians as well as a 70-member panel convened by the American College of Chest Physicians, which recommended aspirin for all people over 50 with one risk factor and no conditions that make aspirin use inadvisable. This translates into the majority of people over 50, since risk factors for heart disease include male gender, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, diabetes, cigarette smoking, lack of exercise, and family history of heart attack or stroke.2
In fact, aspirin is commonly considered a “miracle” drug and it is expected to have many undiscovered health benefits. In a variety of studies aspirin has been shown to reduce the risk for colorectal cancer.3-5 A study done in 2003 in people with a high risk of dementia, showed that a combination of aspirin and B-vitamins reduced the biochemical factors associated with cognitive impairment.6
While there are many nutrients that can reduce the risk of an abnormal blood clot forming inside a blood vessel, it is still beneficial for most people to take aspirin in the low dose provided by the Healthprin™ tablet, which minimizes stomach irritation. We also recommend that it be taken with a heavy meal to further decrease the possibility of stomach irritation.
