Is This Pharmacy Staple BAD For Your Immune System?
When’s the last time you walked through the aisles of your local pharmacy and thought to yourself…
THAT LOOKS DANGEROUS!
You sure shouldn’t think that!
After all, your pharmacy (or even the pharmacy aisle at your favorite big box store) is the one place you should feel confident there isn’t a danger to your health lurking on the shelves.
But unfortunately, that’s NOT the case… at least according to a new study.
In fact, it found that some of the TOP items you find at a pharmacy could end up being bad for your immune system… potentially making you a sitting duck for a serious infectious disease.
OTC Painkillers Weaken Your Immune System?
According to a new scientific study out of the University of Sydney (Australia), a variety of common over-the-counter (OTC) painkillers could have a negative impact on your immune system.
The study specifically looked at the immune responses linked to acetaminophen (Tylenol), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, and opioid analgesics.
The results of the study varied from person-to-person, but some of their findings were eye-opening (and frankly, kind of scary).

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
For instance, they found that a class of drugs called antipyretics —pain relief medications like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin — showed a tendency to “reduce desirable immune responses.”
Again, the study did note that the findings did not affect the majority of people. But there were instances where these medications did impede how the body responds to fighting off infectious disease.
The bottom line?
Relying solely on OTC painkillers or anti-inflammatory drugs to fight off a virus, bug, or disease isn’t your best option.
But thankfully, there are other options that don’t suppress your body’s natural immune response.
We all know that vitamin C is associated with a better immune system. But studies have also found that supplementing with vitamin D, zinc, and even elderberry supplements can improve your immune response and fight inflammation – which is usually a precursor to getting sick.
Consider stocking your medicine cabinet with these natural solutions instead of the run-of-the-mill OTC drug. A consistent regimen of these natural remedies could go a long way in helping support your immune system all year long.
