Study shows reduced risk of cardiovascular disease during times of bereavement with daily aspirin intake

A study published in the American Heart Journal explored the effects of aspirin and low dose metoprolol intake during early bereavement periods.

Times of bereavement are often associated with an “increased risk of cardiovascular disease,” but there has been a lack of research into the prevention of this type of risk. This study examined 85 recently bereaved participants (spouses and parents) in Australia during a 6-week period of daily treatment (or placebo) of aspirin or low-dose metoprolol.

The results indicated that there is a “potential preventative benefit” of this management technique during periods of bereavement.
