Gaviscon Liquid Sachets Mint flavoured bring fast, soothing and long lasting relief from the pain and discomfort of heartburn and acid indigestion. Gaviscon Liquid Sachets contain the tried and trusted Gaviscon Original Peppermint Liquid formulation now available in convenient individual sachets. The sachets are ideal for when you are on the go - whether on a flight, in the car, out shopping or in a restaurant.
Gaviscon soothes irritation in the oesophagus (food pipe) on its way down to the stomach. But once it has arrived in the stomach the action really begins! It works by forming a raft (thick layer) on top of the stomach contents soon after it makes contact with the stomach acid. The raft acts as a strong physical barrier and helps keep all the components of the stomach contents in the stomach where they work, not letting them seep back up into the oesophagus where they hurt.

My son suffers from heartburn and found these very useful in the UK to take to school. Cant get this handy format in Canada so its great to see I can still get them for my son. Great service and cheap too. Anyone living in Canada will know that OTC medicines are VERY expensive. Thank you Chemist Direct.
Brilliant for taking on holiday in this handy format.
