Doctors Have Urged People Aged Over 40 To Stop Using Ibuprofen

We should all try to look after ourselves a bit better than we currently do.

Going to the gym a bit more, and cutting down on the fast food and surgery treats are all great ways of getting healthier.

After all, how are we suppose to fight off death and live a long and happy life if we can barely manage a flight of stairs without getting out of breath!

Ok, I’m not suggesting that you become a fitness fanatic, so stop panicking. But what I am saying is, when you reach a certain age, healthy living becomes more and more important.

Trust me, it’s something you won’t regret in the long run!

But as important as it is to stay healthy, even when you get older, it can also be a bit harder.

When you get past a certain age more and more parts of your body starts to ache and it can make exercise uncomfortable.

One of the most important things to look after when it comes to our health is our hearts.

Our tickers keep us alive, so it’s important that we start looking after it and learn what’s good for it and what’s best to avoid.

But it looks like once you hit the 40 mark, it’s best to avoid this household drug that you probably have in your medicine cabinet.

When we get a headache most of us wouldn’t think twice about taking a small dose of an over-the-counter painkiller.

These drugs usually take care of the immediate problem and make us feel a bit better a little sooner. 

But most of us don’t think about the aftermath of taking these over-the-counter drugs so regularly, especially in the long term.

That’s why this recent research may come as a bit of a shock to you. 

The recent study suggests that one painkiller, in particular, can be toxic to the heart muscle, making it even more dangerous for people over the age of 40!

If you’re one of these people who head right for the ibuprofen bottle whenever you feel a headache coming on, then you may want to put the pill bottle down and turn to another alternative.

Back in 2015, the FDA decided to strengthen the warning labels on ibuprofen.

They decided to do this after learning that a heart attack or a stroke can occur, even in the first few weeks of using the drug, which makes it especially risky for people in their 40s.

Thankfully for us older people there are a number of safe alternatives that are a better way than taking Ibuprofen, and they’re relatively cheap and they’re also natural.

There are a number of scientists and medical professionals that suggest using turmeric, which is a plant native to Asia.

The plant is thought to have extraordinary healing powers. So, how does it work?

This power is often found in most grocery stores and pharmacies in powder form.

Turmeric is loaded with polyphenols, and it’s been used in Eastern medicine for centuries. It has a spicy yet earthy taste that can be added to a variety of recipes.
