Mayo Clinic On Aspirin.............
Thursday, August 02, 2018
Dr. Virend Somers is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is the lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon.
Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
The Reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
2. Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest-----years! (When it gets old, it smells like vinegar).
Something that we can do to help ourselves-----nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.
