Aspirin and Heart Disease

Cardiovascular disease is known to be one of the world's number one killer. Just in America, more or less one million people die each year due to different types of heart disease. Heart attack (scientifically termed as MI or AMI - acute myocardial infarction) takes place when there is an interrupted supply and flow of blood to the heart muscle due to clotting of blood.

It is a common knowledge that it is the blood which carries oxygen to different parts of the body and that each and every organ needs enough supply of oxygen for them to function well. When there is blood clotting and the flow of blood is disrupted, the patient will initially feel shortness of breath and chest pain due to lack of oxygen supply. If not treated, it can cause stroke or sudden death.

As Aspirin has been proven to be efficient as an anti-clotting drug, most doctors prescribe and advise intake of Aspirin daily to patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases.

Daily dose of Aspirin as an anti-clotting agent:

The most common dosage of Aspirin to keep the heart healthy is from 80 to 150 mg per day (low dose). Chewable Aspirin only takes 30 minutes to produce its effect while enteric-coated ones may take up to 3 to 4 hours. Aspirin preparations for the heart are also commonly known as baby Aspirin and heart Aspirin.
