The following is the detailed research of our Aspirin Proof Process.
Aspirin Low Dose 81mg Tablets: Aspirin, Black Iron Oxide, Colloidal Silicon dioxide, Corn Starch, FD&C Yellow 6 Aluminum Lake, Hypromellose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Polydextrose, Polyethylene Glycol, Polyvinyl Acetate Phthalate, Propylene Glycol, Shellac Wax, Sodium Alginate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Stearic Acid, Talc, Titanium Dioxide, Triethyl Citrate
Aspirin (Acetylsalicylic Acid): can cause nausea and vomiting.
Black Iron Oxide: possible enviornmental concern and possible toxin.
Colloidal Silicon Dioxide: when inhaled in very small quantities over time can lead to silicosis, bronchitis, or cancer, as it becomes lodged in the lungs and continuously irritates them, reducing lung capacities. Silica dust is labeled as a Group 1- “Carcinogenic to Humans” by the IARC.
Corn Starch: no documented health or environmental concern.
Yellow 6: no health or environmental concern. There is a lack or research relating to Yellow 6.
Hypromellose: is a semi synthetic polymer based on cellulose- no documented health or environmental concern.
Microcrystalline Cellulose: is an isolated, colloidal crystalline portion of cellulose fibers- no health or environmental concern.
Polydextrose: no documented health or environmental concern.
Polyethylene Glycol: a polymer of Ethylene Oxide is a known human carcinogen. Polyethylene Glycol is a possible toxin to our organ system as well.
Polyvinyl Acetate: is manufactured using vinyl acetate. The IARC found evidence that vinyl acetate causes tumors in rats and the IARC believes that trace amounts of vinyl acetate can make it into the gum base material. Phthalates can disrupt hormonal systems, which can cause harm during critical periods of development and in adult males phthalates are associated with poor sperm quality and infertility.
Propylene Glycol: is produced from propylene oxide, which is labeled as a Group 2B- “Possibly Carcinogenic to Humans” by the IARC. Propylene Glycol is the active component in anti-freeze, and constant and/or excessive contact can lead to increased risk of respiratory and immune disorders like asthma, hay fever, eczema, and allergies.
Shellac Wax: is secreted from the lac bug. Shellac is scraped from the bark of the trees where the female lac bug (Kerria lacca) secretes it while it moves on the tree. It is then processed (heated) to remove impurities, like bark and insects, and results in a dry flaky substance. To form liquid shella- ethanol is added to the dry flakes.
Sodium Alginate: sodium salt of Alginic Acid- not documented as toxic.
Sodium Bicarbonate: baking soda, an inorganic salt- not documented as toxic.
Stearic Acid: a naturally occurring fatty acid that is not documented as toxic. However it is a possible enviornmental toxin.
Talc: can cause pulminary issues, and is together with impurities such as asbestos linked with lung and ovarian cancer. Talc is labeled as a Group 2B Carcinogen- “Possibly Carcinogenic to Humans” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
Titanium Dioxide: is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium. There is evidence that Yellow nail syndrome may be caused by titanium- either implanted for medical reasons or by eating foods that contain titanium dioxide. Titanium Dioxide is labeled as a Group 2B- “Possibly Carcinogenic to Humans” by the IARC. A study found that when rats drank water treated with titanium dioxide the nanoparticles caused clastogenicity, genotoxicity, oxidative DNA damage and inflammation.
Inhalation of titanium dioxide can cause irritation to the nose and throat. Skin contact can cause mild irritation, and eye contact may cause slight irritation as a “foreign object”. Tearing, blinking and mild temporary pain may occur as particles are rinsed from the eye by tears.
Triethyl Citrate: a triester of ethyl alochol and citric acid- not documented as toxic.
