What Happens To Your Brain's Health When You Take Ibuprofen Every Day
Ibuprofen is a go-to option for quick relief from fever or pain. Per research in Science Daily, the pill can also reduce the risk of brain disease, including Alzheimer's.
Canadian neuroscientists have found that regular use of ibuprofen might prevent Alzheimer's in people with high levels of Abeta 42, a peptide linked to the disease.
This opinion is supported by a 2008 American Academy of Neurology research, which found that using ibuprofen for over five years reduced the risk of developing Alzheimer's by 40%.
Despite positive results, medical experts stress the need for more research as current studies are population-based, not clinical trials, and ibuprofen has known consequences.
Daily use of ibuprofen has adverse side effects, like digestive issues, ulcers, kidney injury, liver injury, bruising and bleeding, and skin rashes, that shouldn't be overlooked.
