There are actually two functional groups in Ibuprofen. Carboxylic acid is the first functional groups and an aromatic ring (image of Benzene). The way Ibuprofen work in the body is with the enzyme called cyclooxygenase which prevent a compound called arachidonic acid to turn into prostaglandins. One of the actions prostaglandins cause is inflammation (Jones & Lewis, 2010). That is why when we look at Ibuprofen, it is described as an anti-inflammatory medication. What this means is it help reduce the swelling to relief pain and help reduce fever. The small side effect most of us done know is Ibeprofen have an anti-platelet effect which is a COX inhibitor that prevent the production of TxA2. According to an article from, there are six natural alternatives to ibuprofen. They are Bosellia, Capsaicin, Cat’s claw, Curcumin, Omega-3 fatty acids, and White willow bark. All of these usually contain little or no side effects comparing to ibuprofen. Each have they own ways to relief pain or swelling.

Law of Branding

...представляете первый брэнд в новой категории, попытайтесь выбрать название, которое сможет стать нарицательным. (Юристы посоветуют вам обратное, но что они знают о законах маркетинга?) Не только первый брэнд обычно становится лидером, но продажи товаров следующих за ним брэндов обычно коррелируют со временем их выхода на рынок. Самый лучший пример - ибупрофен. Advil был первым препаратом ибупрофена, Nuprin вторым, Medipren - третьим. Их продажи на рынке соответствуют очередности их появления: Advil занимает 51 процент рынка ибупрофена, Nuprin -10 процентов, Medipren -1 процент рынка. Четвертым брэндом ибупрофена, появившимся на рынок, был Mortin IB. Хотя рецептурное название этого препарата - ибупрофен, доля рынка Mortin IB составляет лишь 15 процентов. (И это при том, что Advill выводился на рынок как "лекарство, обладающее таким же действием, как Mortin"). И обратите внимание на замещение нарицательного названия. Потребитель использует именно Advil как имя нарицательное и очень редко употребляет слово "ибупрофен". Даже врач говорит пациенту: "Примите два эдвила и позвоните мне утром". Также вспомним Tylenol, первый брэнд ацетаминофена. Tylenol так далеко позади оставил брэнд номер два, что никто и не знает, как он называется. Поскольку секрет успеха состоит в том, чтобы первым проникнуть в сознание потенциальных клиентов, какой же стратегии придерживаются компании? Они придерживаются стратегии лучшего продукта.
