The Benefits of Daily Asprin for your Health
One of the simplest, cheapest and most effective drugs you can take to
reduce the risk of heart disease is daily low-dose aspirin. Although best
known for its anti-inflammatory effects, aspirin also reduces the stickiness
of blood platelets. This helps prevent the formation of blood clots which
can block the flow of blood in your heart and brain. For this reason aspirin
is often prescribed to help prevent a first heart attack and reduce the
chance of stroke in men at risk for these problems. Furthermore, aspirin has
been shown to be protective against some forms of cancer.
Daily aspirin therapy is not right for everyone, however, so before you
begin an aspirin therapy regimen, talk with your physician to make sure you
are an appropriate candidate.
