They call aspirin the cheapest, fastest, safest way to protect your heart.
Well, they got one part of it right.
Daily aspirin certainly IS cheap.
It costs about a penny a day. But that doesn’t account for the HIDDEN COST of this UNSAFE solution.
And that’s a potential “fast” trip to serious and potentially deadly risk.
In just a moment I’m going to share with you the ANTI-aspirin. Because there really IS a cheap, fast, and safe way to get that heart protection you want.
But first, let me share with you that latest warning about low-risk patients using aspirin.
And if you’re on the drug now… if you’re taking it in the mistaken belief, it’ll protect your own ticker… it’s time to have a talk with your doctor.
Because new research reveals how this drug could cause you to spring a leak right where it can hurt you most.
DEEP INSIDE YOUR BRAIN!
And if you’re following this mainstream advice even though you’re already at low risk for a heart attack, you could pay the price with your life.
Daily aspirin can trigger a DEADLY brain leak
Aspirin thins the blood so well it can cause bleeding problems; this isn’t new.
But the study finds it could put you on the path to one of the most dangerous forms of bleeding of all: intracranial hemorrhage. Or what you and I would call a brain bleed.
It’s deadlier than an ischemic stroke. And if you luck out and survive, you’re much more likely to struggle with significant disability afterward.
In other words, you want to do EVERYTHING in your power to avoid this condition.
But if you’re taking daily aspirin, the risk soars by a stunning 40 percent. That’s enough to trigger TWO extra brain bleeds in every 1,000 patients on aspirin.
Protect your heart WITHOUT the risks
Throw in the risk of bleeding everywhere else – including painful ulcers in your gut – and the fact that aspirin provides almost NO BENEFIT at all to low-risk patients, and you’ve got no reason to take it and every reason to avoid it.
So if you’re low risk take these two steps instead…
Step 1: Talk to a doc about getting off aspirin. Don’t try quitting on your own. Stopping aspirin suddenly can have an ugly “rebound” effect that triggers a heart problem. But your doctor can help you safely wean off of them.
Step 2: Once you’re safely off the aspirin, get busy working on TRUE protection. Coenzyme Q10 can help prevent a heart attack, and that’s not even its only trick. If you DO have a heart attack, higher levels of coQ10 in your body can limit the damage, so you’re more likely to survive and less likely to face lasting damage.
