Brufen syrup belongs to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These drugs are used to reduce pain, inflammation, and fever and also to prevent blood clots. This medicine is very effective in age-related diseases.
The drug was introduced as the cure for rheumatoid arthritis in the United Kingdom in 1969, and in the United States in 1974. Other than Aspirin, in 1983 and 1984, it became the first NSAID to be available over the counter(OTC) in these two countries.
Brufen syrup is a pain reliever and it is also used to reduce pain, headache, fever, colds, period pain, toothache, mild arthritis, and inflammation. It is very effective and common ingredient in many cold and flu remedies.
Brufen syrup contains Ibuprofen which is the active ingredient along with microcrystalline cellulose, lactose, hypromellose, croscarmellose sodium, sodium laurilsulfate, magnesium stearate, french chalk, colloidal silicon dioxide, and titanium dioxide. Another name for ibuprofen is isobutyl phenyl propionic acid.
Latest research about ibuprofen:
Researchers used to work on the idea of extending life span, but it turns out to be remarkably easy, in organisms like mice and worms. Drugs that can prolong the survival of these creatures; aspirin and the anti-diabetes compound metformin, are already very common in use. Several studies show that ibuprofen is also worthwhile. Ibuprofen suppresses inflammation, which underlies many age-related diseases and might contribute to aging. According to some research by AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), people who take ibuprofen for a long period have a lower risk of developing two age-related illnesses, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
