What Is Naproxen For?
To help with inflammation and healing, the body release chemicals known as Prostaglandins. Meanwhile, when these chemicals go out, as well as the benefits, they also cause some negative side effects such as pain and fever.
These Prostaglandins come from an enzyme existing as cyclooxygenase (COX). Naproxen and other NSAIDs work to reduce the amount of COX-1 and COX-2.
Whilst the COX-2 enzyme is the one that creates prostaglandins that cause pain and fever, the COX-1 enzyme helps protect the stomach lining from any damaging effects of acid. Also this is why when sometimes taking NSAIDs or Naproxen, your stomach can produce ulcers.
