Ibuprofen May Limit Your Muscle Growth

A new study out of a Swedish medical university finds that anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen inhibit muscle growth, cancelling out much of any progress made working out. In the study, weightlifters who took low-dose aspirin instead of ibuprofen saw, in some cases, twice as much muscle growth.

Principal investigator Tommy Lundberg notes “The results are extremely interesting since the use of anti-inflammatory drugs is so globally widespread, not least amongst elite athletes and recreationally active individuals.”
