Aloeride® is useful when taking Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
You may likely have been prescribed Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS) before if you have injured yourself and gotten a painful inflammatory reaction in your muscles, tendons, or joints. Or you may have bought an over-the-counter NSAID formulation to treat an ailment. Over 100 million NSAIDS are prescribed in the UK, US, and Canada each year.
NSAIDS are very popular due to their success in treating acute as well as chronic pain. But they do have significant drawbacks to extended use including adverse effects on the kidneys and making asthma symptoms more intense. They are also linked to stomach and duodenal erosions, which may cause severe enough bleeding to require hospitalization, or may even result in death. In fact, one U.S. study found that NSAID-related gastrointestinal deaths are higher than that from cervical cancer, asthma, or malignant melanoma. [G Singh, Recent considerations in nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug gastropathy. American Journal of Medicine 1998 105(1B): 31S-38S]. That is quite an eye opener by any standard.
Well-intentioned physicians prescribing NSAIDS attempt to balance their benefits against their potential for harm. They often write accompanying prescriptions for so called gastroprotective medication (e.g. Misoprostol, PPIs and H2RAs) to try and offset the commonest side effects of NSAIDS. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and H2 Receptor Antagonists (H2RAs) cause acid-suppression. This means there is less acid to irritate the erosion or ulcer. However, this co-medication does not give your body any tools to heal that iatrogenic NSAID-related lesion. It merely forces a lesser irritant during ongoing erosive onslaught.
Instead of using these drugs that merely lower acidity which is actually beneficial for proper digestion of foods that you consume, a more sensible approach would be to take a mucosoprotective agent that accelerates the healing of existing gastroduodenal ulcers, and may prevent them in the first place.
That specific agent is Aloeride® aloe vera capsules at a minimum of 2 capsules a day. There are loads of existing painstaking research to support this approach.

It is important to keep in mind that even NSAID users who are co-prescribed gastroprotective medications in line with present medical guidelines are still susceptible to NSAID-related hospital admission and death, and at the very least, may suffer from erosions and/or ulcers. Although doctors are mindful of impending harm, they continue to prescribe these medications because they provide benefits to so many.
Although alternatives to NSAID therapies exist in the form of enteric coated proteolytic enzymes, they don’t pack the punch that NSAIDS bring as both anti-inflammatories and excellent analgesics. But what a price to pay – a gamble with your health (and life) at stake!
If you are an NSAID user and suspect that you may have an ulcerative erosion, or experience nagging or slight nausea or abdominal discomfort, you can begin to repair the damage with Aloeride©. Aloeride© will begin to suppress acidity and accelerate the healing process, and may even prevent NSAID-related gastroduodenal ulcers and erosions. Privately prescribed by physicians and therapists, Aloeride© can also be purchased securely via the internet.
