I think because you need a medicine degree to begin to understand it and it's function in humans: "COX is an enzyme that forms prostanoids—prostaglandins, prostacyclins, and thromboxanes—which are all responsible for the inflammatory response.
It turns out that COX is not all bad, it is even necessary for normal cellular processes."
Source: VeryWell. NSAID's are COX 1 & 2 inhibitors.
The pros and cons of inhibiting the enzyme are complex and will require some reading to understand.
