How Sumo Tablet works?

Sumo Tablet’s components aid in relieving pain and fever.

Nimesulide is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), while paracetamol/acetaminophen is an antipyretic (fever reducer). Both combine to block the release of a few chemical messengers in the brain which can cause pain, fever, and inflammation (redness and swelling). They also block the secretion of cyclooxygenase, which prevents the production of prostaglandins in the body. Both (prostaglandins, cyclooxygenase) are the reasons for acute pain, inflammation, and joints swelling.

Cyclooxygenase (or COX 2) is an enzyme which manufactures a compound called prostaglandin, whose production in the body results in inflammation, pain, and swelling of joints.

Sumo Tablet is a COX 2 inhibitor, so can reduce/end these symptoms. Sumo Tablet also attacks all components which contribute to the inflammation process, like proteolytic enzymes, histamine, prostaglandin, free radicals, and cyclooxygenase.
