The natural alternative to Advil pain medication to relieve headaches, pain, and inflammation.
Advil may be a quick fix to relieve a headache, sore joints or back pain. However, be aware of new important safety information from the FDA before popping multiple or repeated ibuprofen capsules. Ibuprofen, commonly sold under the brand names Advil and Motrin, belongs to a group of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The FDA is strengthening an existing warning on drug labels to indicate that NSAIDs can increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, either of which can lead to death. Those serious side effects can occur as early as the first few weeks of using an NSAID, and the risk might rise the longer people take NSAIDs.
Why not take a healthier, natural and effective option? The Healthiest team recommends Meriva 500-SF, a unique, patented curcumin product. curcumin (the orange pigment and main active compound in turmeric), is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that offers numerous health benefits. In addition to combating chronic inflammation and pain, curcumin also supports joint health, the GI tract, and cardiovascular health. Curcumin is poorly absorbed by the body. We chose Meriva 500-SF because it uses a new and unique patented phytosome technology that ensures more efficient absorption of the curcumin into the bloodstream.
