NSAID's, ibuprofen, anti-infalmmatory drugs

Would taking these on a daily basis have any negative effects on your body?

Any side effects?

I heard they mess with protein synthesis, which I have no idea if its true or what it even means.
Goal is to dunk.

Vertical needed to dunk: 40"

Current vertical : 38.5"

Some bodybuilders use aspirin because it lowers cortisol effects (not production, just effects). But it also knocks t and GH levels at the same time so the whole thing is kinda redundant. The effect on protein synthesis relates to this hormonal profile change too I believe. Unless you have just been chased by a dinosaur and you're worried about failing your upcoming cortisol level test aspirin supplementation is not for you  ::)

If you have to use aspirin or similar regularly for something just follow the instructions on the box. They're conservative for a reason. I take aspirin once a week on average when my patellar tendons flare up no worries. The levels used to elicit a hormonal response in studies are pretty big. If you're gobbling that much over the counter pain med regularly you best get some professional help.
