A new study shows that NSAIDS such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen, and Advil reduce testosterone levels! But don't you worry; we have the fix. Our top-selling digestive formula Athlete Digestive Formula is a staple for most people to ensure the elimination of bloat, gas and indigestion. Many also use ADF to ensure more amino acids are delivered from the protein they eat. These are all great reasons and why we put it in our pouches and take it wherever we go.
.What many people don’t know is that there are other uses for ADF and one of them became even more important today after a study was just released on the damaging effects of aspirin. Check this out:
.Advil is America's No.1 selling over-the-counter pain reliever. Millions of us reach for a bottle to ease life's common aches and pains, such as headaches and overworked muscles, but should we?
Ibuprofen—the generic name for Advil and Motrin—is a popular painkiller that belongs to a class of drugs known as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). It relieves pain, lowers fever, and reduces inflammation.
Ibuprofen has been used for more than 30 years, and until recently, it was considered safe. Several studies have questioned that belief. The most recent findings, which were published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, discovered that ibuprofen can reduce fertility in men.
Other troubling research has recently emerged. Several studies have linked OTC painkillers with an increased risk of heart attack. While most studies peg the increased risk at about a third, one study found that ibuprofen more than doubled the risk. A study published in the British Medical Journal found that the risk can begin as soon as a week after beginning to take painkillers.
The medications, which are all NSAIDs, include ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cambia), celecoxib (Celebrex), and naproxen (Midol, Aleve). The study also found that the higher the dose, the greater the risk.
.Ibuprofen, as well as acetaminophen (Tylenol), increases the risk of hearing loss in women. A study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that the risk was present even if a woman took as few as two doses a week.
So, what does ADF have to do with ibuprofen problems? ADF when taken between meals (on an empty stomach) can effectively reduce pain causing inflammation due to the proteolytic enzymes and probiotics it contains. Instead of working on the food, ADF can get into the bloodstream and start digesting pain-causing inflammation and help improve the balance within the body.
.If this just lowers your aspirin intake, it is doing a great service for you. That way, when you feel you have to take the occasional aspirin, you can minimize the risks.
What about the Testosterone levels? Well, as you guessed, it can also affect women’s T levels as well as men. Here is a suggested protocol if you are still going to take aspirin once in a while.
ADF : Take 1-2 capsules between meals twice a day to lower inflammation and pain
TEST GAIN : Take 1-2 capsules morning and night to keep testosterone levels up and functioning at the highest levels possible even with incoming toxins.
