Researcher Suggests Human Body Can Produce Its Own Aspirin


UK researcher Gwendolyn Baxter and his colleagues could prove in the blood of testpersons a low concentration of salicylic acid - the active compound of aspirin when digested - though these persons did not take in aspirin previously.

The concentration in the blood of vegetarian testpersons was almost as high as in persons who took an aspirin pill before. As further investigations revealed, salicylic acid was not solely taken in by diet, it was produced by the body itself.

The research team states: "It is, we suspect, increasingly likely that SA is a biopharmaceutical with a central, broadly defensive role in animals as well as plants". Salicylic acid is maybe the first of a new group of bioregulators.

If I could only have my body produce large amounts of seratonin and dopamine!

Sitting to close to the PC or having a laptop depletes said asprin.
Thus is a cosmic wash. But McNabb wasn't sure about this.
