Gaviscon Advance Liquid Peppermint contains double the concentration of sodium alginate compared with Gaviscon Original and therefore provides the strongest Gaviscon treatment that works as a raft. i.e by forming a thick layer on top of the stomach contents which prevents acid rising back up into the oesophagus (food pipe).

I am taking this 4 times a day to help prevent cough caused by stomach acid and enzymes which affect the larynx and sinuses in the form of a mist. I donĂ?Â´t have the usual reflux symptoms of heartburn etc. It seems to work and is a much better alternative to having surgery to close up the hietal hernia.
