Not just the same, old bitter pill anymore – aspirin again steals the limelight with its new found activity. It has been studied that bitter pill aspirin can decrease the risks of heart attacks and heart failures if taken at the bedtime. The American Health Association has declared that people who are diagnosed with heart disease can take small amounts of aspirin, regularly before going to bed. Aspirin, a drug of anti-pyretic and the analgesic genre had passed the taste of time since its innovation. It has served mankind over 100-years. The prevention of attacks has made aspirin surface and exposed the benefits of how they can help.

According to the researchers of a new study, aspirin lowers the chance of heart attack by 30 percent  if taken regularly before going to bed. Even people suffering from normal health concerns can get cured by aspirin. The researchers noted the records of 290 participants who administered aspirin pills regularly either morning or at night, during two 3-month periods. The provided dose was 100mg for the participants. Both male and female volunteers were placed under the study for best, cohesive results.

The study showed that people ingesting aspirin at night, showed lower blood clot formation than individuals taking their dose in the morning. The scientists concluded the bedtime bitter pill lowers early morning heart attack chances and cardiac heart failure possibilities. This is a study that finally shows proof to the adage of aspirin prevention for heart attacks.

Aspirin keeps platelets away from forming clots, which can cause heart attacks, cardiac failures and strokes, said cardiologist Sidney Smith Jr., a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and a spokesman for the heart association.  “Heart attacks are more likely to occur in the morning, so anything that would reduce platelet activity during the morning hours could be beneficial.”

Aspirin, normally used in fever, headache and pains, is now again in vogue due to new studies. A few days ago, a group of scientists found out that aspirin lowers the risk of cancer; even people prone to developing cancer cells, can prevent the disease taking aspirins on a regular basis. Though, aspirin does not reduce blood pressure, it does reduce blood clotting of platelets. These platelet clot are largely the cause of heart attacks and strokes in the early morning.

“Platelet activity is highest in the morning; so people are more prone to face risks of heart attacks, strokes and cardiac failures. You might reduce the risks taking aspirin pills regularly,” said Tobias Bonten, the author of this study of Holland University.

A simple medicine such as aspirin, creates a pleasant surprise for millions. Once it was only synonymous to reduce fever, aches and pains. Now, after exploring many fields and wearing many hats of the “perfect healer” it confirms the prevention and reduction of heart diseases. In addition, the bitter pill aspirin minimizes the chances of heart attacks and strokes. This is especially useful for people who may carry more weight, and may be suspectible to a higher chance of heart attacks.Aspirin is here to cure – the headache and heart, together.It’s time to heal the “algesia” (pain) of all kinds with this evergreen analgesic. Bitter pills do contain unlimited sweetness if taken at bedtime.
