How does Brufen Retard work?

The active ingredient in Brufen Retard is Ibuprofen and each tablet contains a strong 800mg dose of Ibuprofen in a sustained-release formulation. This is designed to release Ibuprofen gradually into your blood stream throughout the day. This means your body gets a steady and continual dose of medication throughout the day to reduce your pain and inflammation, allowing you to perform your daily tasks in comfort.

Brufen Retards helps prevent the production of chemicals in the body known as prostaglandins, which are produced as a response to pain and inflammation.

With less prostaglandins, you experience less fever, swelling, pain and general discomfort.
