Think things over before taking NSAIDs

Results of a government study indicate a prescription and over-the-counter drug offer no brain-protecting benefits, according the Associated Press.

Researchers theorized that the painkillers Celebrex and Aleve might prevent Alzheimer’s through reduced inflammation. The study, however, showed the two drugs did nothing to slow or halt mental decline.

Celebrex and Aleve fall under the category of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which have been shown to cause potential heart and stomach problems.

Proteolytic enzyme supplements are an excellent alternative to dangerous NSAID drugs. They help modulate the body’s natural inflammatory process, aiding in natural healing and supporting the immune system.

Ginseng might also ease inflammation.

Research from the University of Hong Kong points to seven constituents of ginseng that help fight inflammation, according to a HealthDay article.

The study, published in the Journal of Translational Medicine, identifies ginsenosides as the constituents of ginseng that have immunosuppressive effects.

According to HealthDay, ginseng is used for the following:

  • Improving the health of those recovering from illness
  • Boosting well-being and stamina
  • Enhancing mental health and physical performance
  • Supporting men’s health and symptoms of menopause
  • Keeping blood glucose and blood pressure levels in check
