Flarin 200mg Soft Capsules

Flarin 200mg Soft Capsules contain a new and unique lipid formulation of ibuprofen which provides powerful relief from flaring joint pain and inflammation and helps shield the stomach from damage. The only over the counter (OTC) ibuprofen lipid formulation clinically proven to relieve flaring join pain, it is proven to be as effective as prescription strength ibuprofen (2400 mg/day) at reducing pain. A recent clinical study was conducted at 27 primary care centres in 462 patients, the first of its kind to focus on flaring knee joints and overseen by leading experts. The study demonstrated that Flarin (1200mg/day) was as effective as prescription strength ibuprofen (2400mg/day) at relieving joint pain. As well as joint and back pain, 
Flarin 200mg Soft Capsules also provide relief from rheumatic or muscular pain and pain of non-serious arthritic conditions.

Flarin's complex manufacturing process heats lipids, ibuprofen and other excipients together to create a unique patented formulation. Lipids are used to aid absorption and are known to pass from the stomach into the small intestine where they are absorbed through the lymphatic system. By dissolving ibuprofen in lipids it helps to shield the stomach from damage.

Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which can be used for relief from rheumatic or muscular pain and the relief of pain of non-serious arthritic conditions (caused by swelling, stiffness and inflammation of joints), joint pain, back pain, neuralgia (sharp pain along nerves), migraine, headache, dental pain, period pain, feverishness and cold and flu symptoms.
