LIVE HEART HEALTHY


Preventing Heart Attacks to confirmed high risk people [2]

 

CVD (Cardiovascular Disease) is the leading cause of death worldwide. [40]

The annual mortality rate from CVD is predicted to rise to 23.6 million by 2030. [41]

"45,000 additional lives would be saved each year if we increased to 90 percent the portion of [at-risk] adults who take aspirin daily to prevent heart disease" [42]

Low-dose aspirin is used to help prevent heart attacks as well as recurrent clot-related strokes (ischemic), and TIAs (Transient Ischemic Attacks, also known as mini-strokes) in people who are at Confirmed high risk. [2]


Cause and Prevention of Heart Attacks and Strokes

Heart attacks, ischemic strokes are usually caused by blood clots which prevent the blood from flowing freely in the artery, thus leading the muscle in the heart or tissue in the brain damage because of lack of oxygen. [49]

Aspirin can help prevent these types of events. Aspirin Protect is a low-dose aspirin product with a special coating, [2] so it is less likely to cause stomach discomfort. [2]

Consult your doctor to see if a low-dose aspirin regimen is right for you.

Why it's used
Aspirin Protect Tablet is used to reduce fever and mild to moderate pain from a headache, menstrual periods, cold, toothache, or muscle ache. This medicine works by reducing the effects of a chemical in the body that causes fever. Aspirin Protect is also used to relieve pain associated with inflammation or long-lasting degeneration of joints caused by osteoarthritis. It is also used to reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke in patients who have a history of heart disease or stroke associated symptoms. This medicine works by preventing the formation of clots in the blood vessels. This medicine helps by making blood flow smoothly throughout the heart.
Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs
Aspirin Protect belongs to a class of medicines called Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, also called as NSAIDs, help reduce fever, decrease pain, and prevent clotting of blood. NSAIDs also reduce inflammation in the body when used in higher doses.
