What is the definition of "solubilized ibuprofen"?
“Solubilized ibuprofen," like that in Advil® Liqui-Gels®, is ibuprofen that has been completely dissolved in a liquid center inside a soft capsule shell.
What is the difference between Advil Liqui-Gels®, tablets, caplets and gel caps?
Form is a matter of preference, as each is effective as indicated by label. Tablets are the original round form of Advil®, which has been trusted by millions for over 30 years. Oblong-shaped Advil® are called caplets — which are available with a gel coating (gel caps) so they’re easier to swallow.
Advil® Liqui-Gels® don’t just look different from the others, they are different as they contain solubilized ibuprofen. Consequently they’re absorbed into the body more quickly for faster pain relief.
Fast acting Advil® Film-Coated Tablets have a Rapid Release Formula with a core of ibuprofen sodium, a salt form of ibuprofen that is much more soluble in water than standard ibuprofen. Because they are more soluble, they dissolve fast, and can be absorbed into the body fast.
