Bel Marra Health, well known for offering high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, has commented on research that shows the connection between daily aspirin use and lower cardiovascular disease in women.
The Journal of Women’s Health has shown evidence that less than half of the women who could benefit from aspirin are taking it.
Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, Susan G. Kornstein, MD, commented on the findings saying, “based on this survey, it is evident that the majority of women for whom aspirin is recommended for prevention of cardiovascular disease are not following national guidelines.”
The results showed that of the 200,000 women participating in the study (to assess risk factors for cardiovascular disease) only between 41% - 48% of women reported that they took an aspirin daily.
The study and concurrent survey showed that women who were more likely to use aspirin if they had a family history of cardiovascular disease or had high cholesterol.
Expert of Pulmonary Medicine Dr. Victor Marchione says the results are showing that women need to be more aware of preventative medicine. He adds, “with so much stress on the medical system already, if there is an easy lifestyle change that can prevent cardiovascular disease, then women should attention. These studies are in place to help. And with percentages that high, awareness becomes so much more important.”
Study authors have decided more educational programs are needed to increase awareness regarding how aspirin can be used as a preventative for heart disease among women.
