There are multi-drug categories that are often taken by the general public, yet there are hidden benefits to these drugs. How many of us are supposed to take such drugs without noticing their embedded benefits? Have you ever noticed the hidden benefits of these drugs?

Medications with silent health benefits are often revoked by patients because their potential benefits go unnoticed, given the scope of adverse side effects such as chronic pain. However, these drugs can be exceptionally essential for health and should be resumed after thoughtful consideration.

In one meta-analysis of all substantial statin drug testing, statin therapy contributed to a 21 percent decrease in the comparable risk of severe atrial fibrillation for every 1.0 mmol / L decrease in LDL cholesterol levels. Similarly, statins resulted in a 24 percent reduction in major coronary events for every 1.0 mmol / L decrease in Cholesterol level.

If you have taken similar drugs and it was beneficial for your health, share your knowledge and experience to spread awareness.

Homeopathic drugs

Homeopathy is not considered a part of mainstream medicine in a number of countries due to several reasons. [1] One of the reasons is the very low concentrations of the drugs used. The concentrations are sometimes so low that some studies suggest that the clinical effects of the medicine are placebo effects. [2] However, the concentrations of the prescribed drugs may vary as per the severity of symptoms of the patient. Several studies show that homeopathic treatment does have beneficial effects. [3] A research group pre-treated cell cultures of primary lymphocytes with low concentrations (nanomolar to micromolar) of cadmium, followed by an exposure to a toxic environment. Pre-treatment improved cell viability significantly when compared to the control. [4] I therefore think some homeopathic drugs in low concentrations may have a significant impact on mental and physical health. References: 1. Merrell WC, Shalts E. Homeopathy.
