Is it ok to take Advil (ibuprofen) daily for headaches and I heard it increases life span. If not, what can I substitute it with?

In brief: Advil (ibuprofen)

advil (ibuprofen) can help with headache relief but whether it increases life span is questionable.

In brief: Daily NSAID use

While occasional use of ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs ( NSAIDS) may not be harmful, daily use of these drugs irritate the stomach lining and damage the kidneys.
Best to be careful with this class of medication.
