What is Advil used for?

When you suffer from a headache, back pain, arthritis, or an injury, your body produces “prostaglandins” – a chemical that triggers pain signals – and then you experience pain.

Advil temporarily blocks your body from making prostaglandins, reducing the pain signals and relieving your pain at the source.

When used as directed, Advil is tough on pain but gentle on your body. In fact, Advil has been relieving pain for over 30 years, and is the #1 selling pain reliever in the world.
