how to use aspirin, vitamins, and supplements to prevent heart disease in women

A consensus from the American Heart Assoc clarifies how to use aspirin, vitamins, and supplements to prevent heart disease in women.

Aspirin is suggested for women 65 and older...unless they are at risk for bleeding due to previous ulcers or GI bleeding. Advise taking 81 mg/day.

Recommend up to 325 mg/day of aspirin for women who already have cardiovascular disease or those at high risk. Suggest clopidogrel (Plavix) if they can't take aspirin.
