The science behind Advil
Ibuprofen, a powerful non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, is the main ingredient in Advil. When your body is hurt or aching, it produces chemicals that trigger pain signals. Ibuprofen stops the production of these chemicals at the source of injury to reduce pain. Over 30 years of clinical studies have proven that Advil is a safe and effective pain reliever when taken as directed.
Two of the most powerful pain fighting ingredients team up for some big relief.
Advil Dual Action is the first ingredient innovation in the OTC oral pain relief category in 25 years. For the first time in the United States, the top two doctor-recommended and most widely used OTC pain relievers, Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen, have been combined into a single pill. Combining these two allows you to take a lower daily dose of each medication and now get powerful, 8-hour relief. So whether it’s headaches, toothaches, backaches, menstrual cramps, muscle pains, or minor arthritis pain, this combination will fight them all.
