Usually, the substances called vitamins are necessary for metabolic processes. The organism can not produce them in the needed amount and that is why we had to take them by the food.

This is the same also for the only aspirin analogs, which naturally consist of plants- so-called salicylates. In huge amounts, they can be found in the bark of white willow, raspberries, and other forest fruits.

Before, the human was assimilating more raw fruits, in this way he was receiving enough natural aspirin doses. Due to this, he was protected from different diseases, including heart attack.

According Morgan the salicylates:

  • are not synthesized in human;
  • they are beneficial for the organism;
  • can be found in plant food.

All this is typical for the vitamins. That is way the English doctor usually suggests a minimal aspirin doses to be added in juices and other products.

But there are skeptics about this suggestion, because following reasons:

  • the acetyl-salicylic food deficiency does not have the same effect like other vitamins deficiency.
  • the aspirin has not to be taken from children under 14 years. At some persons aspirin provokes liver and brain function disturbance.
  • in 5% from the humans which take aspirin, stomach irritations are observed.
  • in very sensitive people, aspirin can provoke asthma, allergic rhinitis and skin eruption.

Such serious sideway effects do not exist at any other vitamins assimilation. But the dosage is with significant meaning and the ideal case for the organism is to be taken aspirin analogs, by plant foods.
