Paracetamol is the active ingredient used for fever and pain relief such as Panadol.

Works by blocking the production of prostaglandins7 (substances released in response to illness and injury), making the body less aware of the pain or injury


Processed and eliminated from the body within 24 hours1


Recommended for joint pain by major health associations2,3,4 and for hip and knee osteoarthritis treatment in guidelines from European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR).5

Ingested through the mouth, then absorbed from gut (intestine) into the bloodstream
