Ibuprofen is probably the most popular painkiller in the world, with a big number of the world’s population taking it on a daily basis. However, according to recent research, we should all stop using it due to its adverse side-effects. Doctors are now warning people around the world to stop using Ibuprofen as it has been found to greatly increase the risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases!
Here’s a statement made by the FDA on Ibuprofen: “The risk of heart disease significantly increases the longer you use Ibuprofen. You don’t need to suffer from an existing heart problem for the risk to increase, although this kind of condition increases the risk greatly. These risks make the painkiller especially dangerous for people over 40, who already have an increased risk of cardiovascular problems.”
Studies have shown that the painkiller increases the risk of stroke by 20%. These studies examined more than 10 million patients on NSAIDs including Ibuprofen. These drugs have an analgesic and antipyretic effect and can reduce the pain, but it comes at too high a price. There are many natural ingredients which can easily reduce pain without the side-effects, so it’s better to take them instead.
