Doing Your Aspirin Drills

AspirinDrills Although it is extremely common to hear people say that aspirin damages the intestines potentially causing stomach ulcers and intestinal bleeding, this idea did not arise until newer more profitable drugs came on to the market.

Many of the studies that showed aspirin harming the lining of the stomach were designed to do so using extremely high and inappropriate doses (from 10 to 100 pills in a single dose), therefore lacking real life significance.

Apart from being the only NSAID known generally not to cause serious damage to the intestines, aspirin has been shown to protect against intestinal lesions caused by other NSAIDs in a dose related manner.

In fact regular use of aspirin is protective for the intestines against many different irritants, and has been demonstrated to safeguard against gastric and colon cancer.

Aspirin is anti-inflammatory, has antioxidant properties, and helps to defend against the breakdown products of the polyunsaturated fats. It improves metabolism – helping shift cells towards glucose oxidation – can shield against abnormal clotting, reduces estrogen production and is generally protective against degenerative brain disease as well as cancer, heart disease and numerous other conditions.

Dissolving aspirin in water and consuming it with a meal is known by some to help avoid or minimise any initial irritation which is oftentimes caused by added binding ingredients. Consuming aspirin with equal parts sodium bicarb or glycine (or both) can also improve protection for many of those who are sensitive.

A small amount of vitamin K2 taken with aspirin (or some very well cooked kale or kale broth a few times a week) has been shown to help prevent minor bleeding or bruising issues which can occasionally arise as a result of regular or high dose usage.

For anybody who is interested, regular aspirin use has also been shown to significantly improve fertility.

Are you surprised that the benefits of aspirin are not more commonly promoted?
