What Can Aspirin Do for Your Body?

Aspirin helps fight pain and inflammation caused by a wide variety of conditions.
What is Aspirin, and what does it do?

Aspirin is an example of a Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID). It was the first of its kind to be discovered. 

NSAIDs are medications that are commonly used to treat pain, reduce inflammation, and lower a fever. They’re frequently used to treat headaches, painful periods, sprains and strains, colds and flu, arthritis, and other long-term pain conditions.

Aspirin reduces pain and swelling by blocking a natural chemical in your body. Aspirin is used to treat fever and mild to moderate discomfort caused by illnesses such as muscle aches, toothaches, the common cold, and headaches. It may also be used to treat pain and swelling associated with illnesses such as arthritis.
