Ibuprofen increases cardiovascular risk

Elderly people who take ibuprofen daily might be at an increased risk for serious heart disease.

A study published in Arthritis Care & Research found that among survivors of at least one heart attack, ibuprofen users had an 11.4% increased risk of serious cardiovascular events when compared to nonusers. The study included mostly white women with a mean age of 80.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) contain black-box warnings that alert patients to potential dangers or side effects.

Enzyme-based supplements are a good alternative to ibuprofen and other NSAIDs. Proteolytic enzyme supplements offer support for patients with inflammatory conditions.
