ASPIRIN - Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)

Aspirin has been apart of millions of Americans lives for many years.  It can be found in every medicine cabinet in the country, but the question at hand is it really safe to consume? Especially long-term?


The main use for aspirin is a blood thinner in order to prevent stroke and heart attack, but many use the drug as a pain reliever and fever reducer.  It has been proven that long-term (long-term is defined as once a day over a 6 month period) can cause severe complications. Some of these complications include: heart failure, asthma, diabetes, kidney and liver failure, stomach ulcers, tinnitus (ringing of the ear), bleeding/clotting disorders, and hemorrhagic strokes.

These complications are on the severe end, but millions of Americans feel these common side effects after taking aspirin.  The most commonly reported side effects include: rash, heartburn, drowsiness, cramping, headaches, nausea, and abdominal pain.

Have you felt any of these side effects?

The reason behind these side effects is that regular aspirin use decreases gut bacteria, which is the protective lining of the stomach.  This will in turn increase your chances of developing GERD, Chrons, IBS, Leaky Gut, Allergies, and Eczema by over 500%!
