When you’re sick, the last thing you want to do is haul yourself to the store and stand in the pain relief aisle staring at bottles of pills as you try to decode the labels and figure out what’s going to help you feel better. Deciphering what medicine will help your symptoms is hard enough when you’re feeling 100%—it’s overwhelming when you can barely drag yourself out of bed.
The good news, certain tried-and-trusted ingredients have been used for decades to alleviate symptoms and get you on the road to recovery. But that doesn’t mean all meds are created equal and you can grab the closest bottle and rush back home to your comfy couch. Most of the pills lining the shelves are also packed with unsavory ingredients that aren’t doing you or your health any good. Synthetic dyes, talc, and parabens are all common ingredients in the average OTC medicines and supplements, which can overcomplicate your wellness journey.
Enter: Welly and its new line of Welly remedies for a comprehensive take on wellness. Everyone’s favorite smile-inducing first-aid brand has introduced a collection of reliable remedies that feature science-backed, trusted ingredients free from synthetic dyes, artificial flavors, talc and parabens. Just thoughtfully made, clean remedies in playful, easy-to-read packaging that makes shopping for medicines and supplements simple, straightforward, and dare we say fun. Plus, they don’t require a pharmaceutical degree to decipher what’s in them and what they do.
With that in mind, here are the six key ingredients that should be in every medicine cabinet—and what they treat—plus the Welly remedies that feature them (without the synthetic dyes, talc, parabens, and artificial flavors you don’t need). Of course, always speak to your doctor before taking any new supplements or OTC medicines to ensure they won’t cause interactions with your current medications.
Now, you can feel better about the medicine you take to feel better.

Ibuprofen

A pain reliever and fever reducer, Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that can be used for everything from muscle aches to headaches to minor arthritis pain to period cramps. It works by blocking your body’s production of substances that can cause inflammation, which in turn decreases swelling, pain, and fever associated with those conditions.

Acetaminophen

Another common pain reliever and fever reducer, Acetaminophen differs from Ibuprofen in that it doesn’t work on inflammation. It is most effective, however, for headaches and colds (when combined with decongestant ingredients in a cold medicine).
