> Hey,
> hmmm so would you suggest to have aspirin regularly. Has anyone found any trials, journal articles or tests that would suggest we should include it into our diets regularly.

I wouldn't suggest aspirin unless you talk to your doctor about it first, it is pretty safe but long-term ingestion of anything can have deleterious effects and you should be evaluated for contraindications. And i am not personally aware of any studies of efficacy as an add-on for depression, i only know that it induces tryptophan hydroxylase and there is anecdotal support for use in Tourette's syndrome, but my information is old. There is, however, some support for the use of add-on low-dose phenothiazines for depression, and those are (among so many other things) inducers of tryptophan hydroxylase.

> If so I think there would be alot of people on these boards adding aspirin to their daily regimen.
> I cant tell you that when I have aspirin.. just one tablet it really hurts my stomach.
> Would that suggest I have something wrong with me?? Or that I should take such and such a supplement

No, it does that to a lot of people... i know that the mechanism of action for causing stomach pain and increased risk of ulcer is because of COX-1 inhibition causing decreased secretion of stomach mucous, and i know that there is a supplement that helps that, but as it is not a problem for me personally and i have the usual anoretic-anemic memory problems i can't recall just off the top of my head what it was. I'm thinking it might have been SAMe, though if you are interested you should do your own research.
