Keep stomach acid down where it belongs with Gaviscon
Gaviscon Products brings fast, soothing and long lasting relief from the pain and discomfort of heartburn, acid indigestion and sour stomach. Gaviscon contains alginic acid and sodium bicarbonate and the combination of the alginic acid and bicarbonate will create a a foam barrier which floats on the stomach acid. This barrier helps reduce the number of reflux episodes and provides longer lasting action against heartburn than ordinary antacids.
How does it work?
In addition to the acid-neutralizing ingredients found in Gaviscon, all Gaviscon products contain "alginate". When chewed (Gaviscon Tablets) or swallowed (Gaviscon Liquid), the combination of the alginic acid and bicarbonate creates a foam barrier or "raft" that floats on the stomach acid. This raft foam barrier helps reduce the number of reflux episodes and provides longer lasting action against "heartburn" than ordinary antacid products. If reflux occurs, this raft foam barrier is the first to contact the esophageal mucosa, and thus provides protection against the acid-pepsin gastric contents. In fact, Gaviscon helps keep acid down in the stomach, where it belongs.
Gaviscon comes in a variety of forms so that you can pick whatever is best for you. Gaviscon Liquid and Gaviscon Tablets are available in a variety of flavours, or you may prefer Gaviscon Liquid Sachets, Gaviscon Advance for quicker and longer-lasting relief or Gaviscon Cool Mints that can be taken with you on-the-go.
